A false negative pregnancy test is sometimes hard to believe when in your subconscious mind you know that you did not take precaution while intercourse. Also many also trust it blindly at it gives them a sense of relief if in case they are not ready for the responsibilities. On the other hand people who are ready for family planning get unknowingly inclined towards believing that the test was false.
Let's understand that What Is A False Negative Pregnancy Test?
In simple words it is a test that tells you that you are not pregnant even though there are high chances that you might be soon. A pregnancy test outcome is based on various factors and it might take couple of more days or even weeks sometime to give accurate results.
The most common factor for a false negative pregnancy test is low level of hCG hormone present in the urine. This is a pregnancy hormone which only starts to evolve when a prepared egg gets inserted into the uterine. It can take more than a week for an activated egg to traverse through the lady's Fallopian tube into the uterus. Once inside the uterus it would require some more time to actually deliver the results. In the level of major of hCG is below 5 mIU than it means the lady is not pregnant. That is why it is recommended to perform the test as the first thing in the morning because your pee might get diluted gradually as the day passes and you take any form of liquid in your diet. The rate of formation of hCG hormone is also different for each individual and for one person it might be the double of the rate of another person. This means that a few ladies might be able to test correctly even before six days of their due date of period while other may not even though they are the one who are actually pregnant. Hence testing to early can also be a cause of false-negative test.
Although theoretically 5 mIU is considered to be the level of hCG hormone above which a lady might be diagnosed as pregnant but the kits used to test pregnancy at home can successfully detect it only after it reaches the level of at least 20 mIU.
If you have tried a home pregnancy test, there has to be a reason behind it but since the result was negative and you are not able to completely trust it due to various body symptoms hence you will have to repeat the test after couple of days. Now you might also think that is it possible to reuse the kit you have already utilized for the answer is straight No. And utilize pregnancy test kit can not be reused under any condition even though the test result was negative. The kit is not just a normal strip but it is medicinally composed containing chemicals that become useless after the first reaction.
