A home pregnancy test can give you a false negative reading if:
- The pregnancy test you are you using is expired.
- You didn’t follow the instructions properly, such as not waiting the full amount of time before checking the panel.
- You took the test too soon, meaning your hCG levels are too low to be recorded.
- Your urine is diluted, because you drank too many fluids beforehand.
- If you are taking certain medications, such as diuretics or antihistamines.
