It is highly unlikely.Maybe the kit you are using to do the test is faulty.
Get a USG done to confirm

There are many causes of missed periods like stress,harmonal disturbances,thyroid disfucntion etc. So you should go for U.S.G. for confermation of pregnancy.
If pregnancy is not present,following tests should be performed-
s.estrogen,progesterone,&prolectin level.
s.thyroid profile
C.B.P.with E.S.R.
Show the result to doctor & get examined.

Before me and my girlfriend used to be in relation she used to have period problem , she didn t had her period for 3 month. Doctor said it was because of some kind hormone problem and gave her some med. after few day of taking med she had her period and also after a month . but after 2 month her period stopped again. we both are very sexually active and did home pregnancy urine test 2 time after about 40 day and 50 days but the result was negative. how accurate is urine pregnancy test ? we both are very tensed because we come from the culture where having sex before marriage is very big deal.

I have taken a few negative pregnancy urine tests - but still think I may be pregnant. My stomach is growing and very bloated looking with some excess skin there. I am a thin person, and that is the only place that any weight has gained on my body. Should I go get a blood test or ultrasound?
