Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.

Urine pregnancy test should be done at least week after expected date of menstruation.

False negative readings can occur when testing is done too early. Quantitative blood tests and the most sensitive urine tests usually detect hCG shortly after implantation, which can occur anywhere from 6 to 12 days after ovulation. Less sensitive urine tests and qualitative blood tests may not detect pregnancy until three or four days after implantation. Menstruation occurs on average 14 days after ovulation, so the likelihood of a false negative is low once a menstrual period is late. It is nearly 98% accurate if used according to the steps as mentioned in the template given.

I advice you to repeat the test and preferably use the early morning urine sample.

Yet again, I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.

Hi welcome to H.C.M.Forum. pregnancy test is +ve even after 1day of lapse because it is the 15th day of pregnancy if it is positive. so for this month it is -ve only. for pregnancy both of you should consult a gynaecologist or a fertility clinic. besides you follow some diet recomendations like eat more of green leafy vegetables, cereals, fruits & juices.
have sex between 11th &20th days. follow male up position of sex, etc. wishing for a beautiful baby soon.
