Common Reasons for a Missed Period and Negative Pregnancy Test Result

Negative Pregnancy Test but Still No Period?

Feeling sure that you're pregnant, but have ended up with one or more negative pregnancy test results and still your period hasn't arrived? You're not alone -- getting a negative test with a missed period is more common than you might think.

While home pregnancy tests have improved over the years, (and they are an extremely accurate predictor of pregnancy) there have still been many instances of a test giving a false positive or a false negative result. A woman may get a positive result on her pregnancy test, only to find out later that it's really a negative, after a trip to the doctor. There are those who keep getting a negative test but still have no period.

So, why does this happen? Here we will look at the six most common reasons for a negative test result.

Home pregnancy testing is one of the fastest, most convenient ways a woman can tell if she is pregnant or not. These tests work by testing a small sample of urine for hCG -- human chorionic gonadotrophin. hCG is the pregnancy hormone, and is produced by the developing embryo and later, by part of the placenta. Measuring the hCG via home pregnancy tests is qualitative, which explains why the results are a plain ‘yes’/‘no’ or ‘negative’/‘positive’.

1. Taking a Pregnancy Test Too Early

If you are pretty sure you are pregnant because you've been experiencing some early pregnancy symptoms but have a negative test result, one of the most common reasons is that you have taken the pregnancy test too early. Many people think they can test for pregnancy right away but, like all other things, it takes time. hCG can be detected in the urine only at a minimum of 2 weeks after conception occurs.

So, to get a reliable test result, you'll need to wait until at least the day your period is due to take it. If you can wait a week or two after your period is missed, all the better. By this time, your body will be creating plenty of hCG and your home pregnancy test will be far more accurate.

2. Not Following the Pregnancy Test Instructions

Read the instructions on your home pregnancy test’s package carefully so that you can administer the test properly -- the test is only as good as your ability to follow the instructions! Since the tests are qualitative, this makes them sensitive to the process of testing. Most home pregnancy tests ask you to hold a test trip in urine and pee on it while on the toilet. Some make you dip the test strip in a clean cup where you have collected the urine (my preferred method for an accurate pregnancy test result).

It’s always good advice to get the first urine in the morning -- most pregnancy test kits will already instruct you to do that. The first pee of the day is the best urine to use to ensure accuracy, because it's so much more concentrated from having collected in the bladder overnight. Then, depending on the brand, the result will be in the form of a coloured line, a plus or minus sign, etc.

Results may also be affected by medications you are taking. They can mask the presence of hCG or affect their sensitivity. If in doubt, consult your pharmacist or doctor.

3. Irregular Periods and Late Ovulation

If you have irregular periods, then having a negative test but no period might mean that your ovulation was simply late this month. This will ultimately delay the implantation date, which might have caused you to miscount the number of days when you can finally take the test. This is why it's advisable to test a week or two after the day you were expecting your period. If you conceived late in the month, your hCG levels could very well be lower than any pregnancy test can detect, therefore resulting in a false negative.

A negative test and no period could just mean that your period is late. Women with irregular periods have a longer window for ovulation and thus are particularly prone to miscounting and even having skipped periods. If you keep getting a negative test but still have no period, then you should consult with your doctor. Major changes in your cycle can be symptoms of other conditions, including but not limited to pregnancy.

4. HCG Levels Aren't the Same for Everyone

A slow rate of hCG production is another good explanation for a negative test and no period. Not everybody is built the same -- levels of hCG produced vary from woman to woman. If you tested too early or your body is not making enough hCG for the test to pick up, then you'll get a false negative.

As previously stated, home pregnancy tests are usually very accurate. However, there are of course times when they are less so, and this is one instance where that could happen. While these tests have become better over the years, it’s always best to get your test result confirmed. The confirmatory tests are usually diagnostic procedures done by your doctor. This may involve a verification of the gestational sac and fetal parts using ultrasound, the detection of a fetal heartbeat and the detection of fetal movements by a trained examiner.

5. You are Not Pregnant

Unfortunately, not being pregnant is one of the most common reasons. You may have simply just skipped a period, which happens from time to time. Or your cycle may have become longer. This is of course disappointing for those trying to get pregnant. But, try not to get too disheartened -- there is always next month. :)

6. Other Medical Conditions

There are several other medical conditions that can result in a negative pregnancy test and no period, which is why it's always wise to see your doctor if this occurs. One of the most common medical conditions that causes this is an ectopic pregnancy which is very dangerous and must be diagnosed early to prevent life threatening consequences for the woman.

Other conditions which may cause your periods to stop unexpectedly are ovarian cysts, hyperthyroidism, polycystic ovarian disease, menopause, anorexia, obesity and adrenal cancer.

Remember, don’t just rely on home pregnancy testing because stressing over a negative test with no period isn’t worth it, especially when there is the possibility of having another life to take care of. Read up on what a woman experiences during early pregnancy -- the symptoms you can expect to experience, and listen to your body as well. If you firmly suspect that you are pregnant or your period still hasn't arrived after a few weeks, set an appointment with your doctor without delay to find out for sure.

      Just came across your hub by chance. My girlfriend had missed her period for 2 weeks. After three home pregnancy test it all came out negative. And she had all the signs of a pregnancy too, such sore breasts. So she went to the doctor and it turned out to be a hormone imbalance. So the doc gave her some pills and in the same day she had her period with heavy bleeding. I have to say the experience was like a roller coaster for the both of us.

      If she used a condom, she shouldn't be pregnant. I think she's anxious, but all she can do is wait for her period.

      my period was 9 days late last month, it is normally exactly every 32 days. it was light, and i also had some nauseated moments but it hasn't been consecutive. i was wondering if i am not pregnant why was my period late? i have taken hpt's and a blood test (all negative). we are trying to concieve. and also when do you think my period would start this month if i were to get it? it being late last month has thrown me all off. just trying to figure out what's going on. thank you!

      Hi. I have 2 boys 7&5. We have been trying for another since about july/aug and ive been off BC since then. My period has always been right on ti.me with &without the BC, & it never last more than 3-4 days && it very light. Iwith my first son, i was young && found out at about 10 weeks, i didn't pay attention to my missed period. Only reason i was reminded was cause a lil old lady i worked with kept telling me i was glowing &she knew i was prego, & after a man at the mall refused to sell me a bracelet made of lead cuz he insisted to me i was pg &it would harm the child. I thought bout my last period &couldn't remember when it was, so i took atest. It was positive. My 2nd child we planned, so the first would have a friend. For the life of me i cant recall how long i waited to take a test but i do remember one saying no i wasn't. I think i found out right away. Im 3days late and have taken 2 @home test. One today during the first morning urine. Negative result. Totally bummed& confused. My stomach feels strange. Ive felt dizzy/quease especially when im driving, i drive a lot!!! & this has never happened. my smell is pretty high & i pick up everything . Yesterday my back started hurting bad!! today my boobs felt super tender/sensitive . I have been going pee a lot more, but i always go a lot. Im super bloated, none of my pants fit regular at this moment all are super tight. I have really bad acne breakouts, i get a lil break out b4my period starts but it clears by the time it starts. But this is bad, && honestly o got really bad breakouts in the first trimaster with both my sons. Then it cleared in the 2nd one. All signs point to yes im prego. But test says no. I have no spotting, no cramps. i normally get cramps right b4 i start. Ice been a bit stress, but no more then any other month. How much longer should i wait? Could it be cause of low hcg levels ?? Just concerned, my lil sister didn't find out she was pg til about 6months!!! she had a period every month, only tested cause her belly looked round like she was 6months.

      You should go see your doctor to find out 1. if you are pregnant or 2. if not why you are missing periods. And if you aren't pregnant it sounds like you need to be far more proactive about your contraception and use it properly! Unless you want to be pregnant of course.

I was on nuvaring three months ago and my last period was the last week of Sept 2014 ending first week Oct 2014 after that I took out my nuvaring and haven't been on since. Just this past Friday Jan 2015 I threw up two times at night and have had some symptoms of pregnancy but I took a pregnancy test and all three came out negative. . Could I have possibly taken it to early?

      Hi there, me and my bf had been talking not to have a child and that we should enjoy our time together first. But i was being careless not paying attention on taking my pills. And just this month i was a bit worried my period was delayed by 2 days and then i took a PT and it was negative. I did it twice but same result. So i thought it was just nothing. Then 2 days become 2 weeks i was worried so i took another test and by then it shows 2 lines. My problem is i don't know how to tell to my bf....i am scared of what will be his reaction.

      Any idea please....

      Sometimes we just miss a period for no obvious reason. I'd give it a month to see if one arrives and if it doesn't go see the doctor.

      Hi, Susana

      I've been ttc for months now. My period has also been on track. However in Febuary, my period was late. My last period was March 21. I'm almost 2 weeks late. Took 2 tests, during the day and both were negative. Yet I'm bloated, Gain 4 pounds, very thirsty and extremely tired. I get dizzy when I'm sitting to. Oh and I've had tender breasts and terrible cramps in my abdomin and lower back. I don't want to get my hopes up nor my husband's. That's why I don't go to the doctors. Any advice?

      Hello, my last period was in October. Me n my boyfriend had sex the day before my fertility window opened and for 4 days during fertility window. Exactly 2days after my fertility window ended I noticed a little blood when I peed then not even 3days later I started getting horrible headaches, nausea, my nipples have started changing color, I've woke up on many accassions with morning sickness. I missed my period in November & immediately took a test it came back a very faint positive. I have taken 3 more home test & went to the hospital where they also did a pee test which came back negative & refused to do the blood test like I asked. Its now December & I still have no symptoms of a period n done missed this months cycle. I'm getting extremely worried & I feel my body changing but trying not to get hopes up cause last year I had a false pregnancy. What should I do I don't have a OBGYN & my next Dr. App. Is in February 6th I don't want to wait that long to find out if I'm pregnant. I need help I believe the fact I have hyperthyroidism & epilepsy could possibly throw off a false negative.
