Can a pregnancy test come up negative if I didn’t pee enough?
A false negative on a home pregnancy test is possible, but extremely unlikely. As long as your urine got on the test’s absorbent strip, it should be accurate. You can always take another test if you’re worried you might have missed.
Something that can give you a false negative is taking the test too early. Pregnancy tests are most accurate if you take them after your period is already late. Learn more about pregnancy tests and how they work.
