    Depending on the circumstances, a urine pregnancy test may give you the wrong results. A “false negative” can occur if there is not enough pregnancy hormone in your body to be detected by the test. If you get a negative result before a missed period, wait until the period due date and test again. If your period still does not occur, wait another 5-7 days and repeat the test. It may only take a few more days for the pregnancy hormone level to rise into the detectable range.
