Unhappy False negative pregnancy tests?!? Early symptoms...

Hello! I am so glad I found this forum! I am new so I am sorry if this has already been discussed!

I was wondering if anyone had any insight on PCOS and false negative tests.

I am usually consistently always about a week late for my monthly but I am over a month late now. Thats the latest I have ever been! I was certain it was arriving on numerous occasions with some aching and cramping but would go away then come back occasionally. I have been feeling extra fatigued, slightly elevated temp and moody.

In my search for some knowledge I have come across numerous PCOSers who didnt get a positive HPT and even failed the blood test and still ended up being pregnant. Some women say that they didnt see a positive result until a few months Which baffles me. Yesterday I started having a pretty terrible lower back ache as every time I move it feel like my back is going out I have taken three store brand HPT's all negative. Which I would believe it if I didnt have PCOS and strange symptoms.

Has anyone experience negative HPT's and still ended up being pregnant?

What are some early symptoms?

Thank you!

Worried and Nervous,

it all depends on when you ovulated, and when the egg would have implanted. it took me like 3 weeks from my ovulation to get a positive..i was about 5 or 6 weeks along.

welcome! go get blood work done if you want to be sure. the BW is almost impossible to wrong.

some women on here have had late +'s (BFP's) and still been preggo, so in that aspect- yes it's possible.

good luck!

I had a false negative with this pregnancy... on CD 31! I used a Dollar Store test, which I've heard good things about, but now I don't trust them. I kept waiting, and waiting, and waiting for my period, but it never showed (which is not unheard of for me). I started having some pregnancy symptoms when I was about 6 wks along (although didn't know I was preggo yet). I thought it was some Metformin side effects, which I still get occasionally. Then my BB's started to hurt. I got suspicious, AND we had a doctor's appt. scheduled to start the IUI process and I still hadn't gotten my period. I told DH and he insisted I take another test. My period was now a month overdue. I took another test (not a Dollar Store one) and it was positive even before I set the test on the counter. I was already 8 weeks along.

Thank you guys I am actually believe or not.. not actively trying to conceive at the moment! Actually, I am okay with it being negative in fact at this point in my life it would be more beneficial. But I would be lying if the notion of a BFP did not make me get a little hopeful. I hate this in limbo feeling *blech* I have been diagnosed had PCOS for almost 10 years and have never completely missed a cycle!!! It was off a bit or late .. and I had all the other lovely "gifts" PCOS offer. There were times when I too thought I was pregnant. (I should own stock in HPT's :P ) I guess in time we shall see. I think I am going to wait it out a few more weeks and not dwell too much...(avoiding the psychosomatic symptoms). I am going to try hard not to dwell and read all these "I didnt know I was pregnant" stories :P I will retest in a week. My partner (whom already has a daughter) keeps telling me he thinks I am pregnant. ( I am hoping he is just overly paranoid.) Thank you for all your insight!!!
