I have just missed a period, taken 2 pregnancy tests, one on Thursday and one tonight, both came up negative, why else have I missed a period ?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should repeat the test after a few more days as this test can be false negative initially.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

there are many other causes of missing a period which include increased stress which can either be physican or emotional among many other causes

Customer: If I take the test again in a few days time and it's still negative what are the other reason to completely miss a period ?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

But first I think that you should wait for a few more days and repeat the urine test to be sure and then contact your doctor for a blood pregnancy test if the urine test is negative which are very accurate.

Customer: I was planning to go to local family clinic tomorrow is that still too early ?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Reasons for missing a period include (common):
thyroid problems
Physical stress
emotional stress

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes you can still go tomorrow and have a blood test

Customer: Will the
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Blood tests are very accurate and can rule in/rule out pregnancy.
