Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.
How old are you?
How regular have your periods been coming?
Was the pregnancy test done on a first morning urine? Thank you.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi, i am 29, they have been regular and no it was done midday.
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 2 years ago.
A midday urine pregnancy test can be falsely negative because of dilution. I would recommend repeating the test on a first morning urine.
In case you are pregnant, it's important to have the coil removed.
Women sometimes miss periods for reasons other than pregnancy, such as stress or illness. A good pregnancy test will usually be positive by the time of the missed period if the reason is pregnancy. If the test is negative and pregnancy is still suspected, I would wait a few days and repeat the test.
