I never had a false negative, I've always just tested too early. Buy a walmart brand Equate, or the 1st response early test.


AF showed this morning. I am a little sad, but relieved I know what the deal is now. Strange that I was this late. thanks for your responses guys!!

A few days later AF still hadn't showed so I took a home test and got a positive. 3 tests later I went back for another blood test and it was positive. The first blood test was on CD 25, and my cycles were usually 14 days, so I'm sure it was late enough for a blood test to be accurate.

It could have been long enough, but if they do a quantitive HCG (i think it's the quantitive) then they go only by positive, negative, so if there's not enough HCG, then it's negative...

IF they went by qualitive HCG, then the number could have been, say 18, but they don't consider it a positive until it's 25+. (every lab is different and have their own cut off...) Like 0-5 is neg, 6-24 is borderline, 25+ is positive! That could be how it is that you got a neg blood test!


and to the OP! I'm sorry AF showed up!

Oh I'm sorry Terri. It's weird that AF was so late though.
