Negative Pregnancy Test

You have received a negative pregnancy test result. This means one of two things:

• You are not pregnant

or

• You are pregnant, but it is too early to show on the urine pregnancy test, or it is not showing positive for some other reason (this is rare)

 

There are several reasons that you might miss a period, including, but not limited to:

• Sudden weight gain or loss

• Ovarian cysts

• Metabolic conditions (changes in blood sugar and certain hormones)

• Recent illness

• Stress

• Thyroid conditions

• Certain birth control methods/medications (Particularly Plan B or the “morning after” pill)

• Breastfeeding

Next Steps

If you still do not get your period within two weeks, and have no symptoms (bleeding or cramping), you may call us to set up an appointment for another pregnancy test.

We recommend that you schedule an appointment with a physician to confirm that you are not pregnant and determine the reason for your missed period.

Additionally, if you have not had a Pap smear and/or STI testing in the last year, we strongly recommend that you schedule an appointment with a physician for these procedures. STI testing is recommended yearly, in addition to every time you have a new sexual partner.
