Maybe if you got pregnant yesterday and the egg hasn't implanted yet...otherwise I believe they are very accurate. I would always act pregnant until you get your period, just to be on the safe side. But, I think most likely you are not. If you are TTC, Good Luck!

Yes, they can be but not likely. You may have o'd really late and therefor your AF is late or you are pregnant and too early to tell. I know it sucks, but give it a week and try another test. First Response 4 day early one worked well for me.
Good luck!

IS it possible that i may have tested too early?  Blood test that is.  Or will a blood test be accurate that soon?

My dr. told me that a blood test detects pregnancy immediately....right after conception occurs.

I had a feeling I was pregnant and since I was going away on vacation, I really wanted to know so that I would avoid all those tropical drinks...
My doctor told me that it would be too early to tell even with a blood test-- it was almost 3 weeks after my LMP...

It amazes me how many doctors tell us different answers to the same questions.... I had signs that I felt were pretty strong that I was pregnant right after ovulation so that would be a little over two weeks from the start of my last cycle so the next week I took a pregnancy test and it showed up so light that I was like it looks like the lines there but maybe not. So I called my doctor and since they like to get me on progesterone right away they had me come in so I would say it was about 3 weeks from the start of my last cycle and the blood test showed positive. I know everyone's body is different but my blood test did show before I was due for my next cycle....I get upset because sometimes I feel like the doctors fluff us off if it's not something life threating for example wanting to take a blood test early you know....but just thought I add my experience...good luck I hope you are pregnant!!!!

LOL!!!  YES THEY CAN!!!  My negative blood test result's name is Samantha Danyel!!  lol  I had a negative blood test result almost a month after my last period in 2003.  8 months later I had my second child...a little girl.  I was treated extremely badly by the personnel that did the test because I refused to believe it was negative.  I had a POSITIVE ept test in a little bag that I showed them.  I went to a different office about 3 days later and they repeated the blood test.  This time it was positive.  I made sure the first people found out about it from my lips.  lol  Anyway, doctors are NOT GOD!!  You CAN get a negative blood result if your body just doesn't make that much of the hcg.  Mine hasn't for 3 pregnancies now, and my period is late right now and I again got a negative result on blood and urine tests.  I still don't believe it, but all I can do is wait and try again later.  Good luck everyone...remember to RESEARCH everything!!!  Don't just take a doctor's or a "chick off the internet"'s word for it!!!  (including mine!!)  ((((HUGS)))))

So a Test can actually be wrong? Of course I don't think the Health clinc knew what they were doing anyway for I have taken two home test which they where both postive and one at the clinc which came out to be negative/positive. But when I took a blood test it came out to be negative I also went into the hospital because I had been throwing up blood and slight bleeding which only lasted a day. Also for three weeks now I have been having severe abdomrial pains and throwing up. The doctor said that I was fine that everything was check out but they couldn't tell me why I was throwing up or having severe stomach pains. I had a U-sound done the woman who did it said she noticed something but the doctor told her that I was fine. I really hope someone can help me. My boyfriends friends mom is a nurse and she says it sounds like a Utopia Pragency.

Yes, blood tests can be wrong. I have 4 children, not one test ever came out positive unless it was a blood test! Good luck!
