Could I have taken a pregnancy test too early?

Typically my periods are like clockwork—every 28 days on the dot. Last month I had unprotected sex on a high chance day and ended up getting my period, or so I thought, but it was a week early(that never happens) now this month I started spotting kinda a few days before I should’ve gotten my normal period, but it was just brown spotting. Last month when I thought I could be pregnant, I took a test, but it was negative. Could I have just tested too early, or is something else going on? I have two other children, and each time I found out I was pregnant, this never happened. Someone help me out!

Take another test…


Take a test a week in a half past expected period .

Sounds like implantation bleeding. Wait until a week after period is due and test again


Just take another test… simple :woman_shrugging:t4:


Definitely sounds too early. I tested on a Friday and it was negative and then again on Monday and had a positive result with my son.

Take another test to be sure . If its positive then call your doctor to make an appointment. They will also do another test and get you started on prenatal care if you’re pregnant

I tested the day I was expecting my period and got a very clear positive. I’d test again if you’re worried!!

I’d say too early. Try again soon. Sounds like you had implantation bleeding

Last months bleeding was probably implantation bleeding. This months brown spotting was more then likely old blood. Take another test

Retest in 24-48 hours.

Yes you can test too early. Also false negatives are much more common than false positives so definitely retest

Yes happened to me I took one and it was negative and then I took one 5 days later and it came back positive.

Following. Literally same happened to me!

It definitely could have been too early for the test. 4 weeks is usually the earliest a test will read so I’d definitely take another test. But if it’s negative again I’d go to your OB just to get checked out if you still haven’t gotten your period.


Most test aren’t accurate till 6 weeks (I think) I took one of the test that tests the earliest and it was negative, took another a week later and I was pregnant. Take another test and see what it says now

Ive had false negatives multiple times… test again if you haven’t already

I would retake the home pregnancy test. And if you still are worried you could always go for a blood test. Or wait and see :slight_smile:
