Anyone get a false negative on a Wal-mart Brand test. I was just reading on the internet that the HCG level has to be higher than other tests.

I'm not sure. Maybe try a different brand.

I had NEVER missed a period except when pregnant until this year! I had AF Dec. 7th then nothing until Feb 19th. I missed Jan. and was "late" in Feb. I wasn't sure if I was pg or not. I went to my ob/gyn for my physical and she said sometimes it's normal to miss one and sometimes you don't ovulate, stress, different eating patterns, etc can all play a role in AF not showing up. That ended up being a 74 day cycle when my avg cycle is 31 days long.

I'd wait a few days and retest.

Every time I have ever used a Walmart brand PG test, they have always been accurate. They have always been positive earlier than others for me too. With this baby I got a + 8dpo! One brand I would not recommend is the Rite Aid blue dye ones. I got a false positive the first month we were TTC after the VR. I was so devastated. Do you keep track of your cycles? Just wondering how late are you??

My dr didn't even want to see me till I missed a 2nd period!

But I would call and see what they say. Then if I didn't start they wouldn't do anything about it till I missed a 3rd. That was when she said I had to come in and get a blood pg test done to confirm I was/wasn't before inducing it. I missed Jan 7th AF then according to my 31 day cycles I would have started Feb 7th but finally started AF 4 hours after my ob/gyn appt on the 19th LOL. I didn't think I was stressed nor changed my diet so who knows WHY it happened it just did. All my test results came back normal for hormones & thyroid that they did so who knows! Just a weird AF after getting the VR I guess.

Since you are only 7 days late I'd call and see what they say and take another test in a few days.

Good luck and still hoping you get that BFP!

Hey! I used Equate (walmart brand) I got a + with my preg at 12dpo. How many days past o are you? Try to wait till at least 12 to get an accurate reading.


Good Luck!

I am not sure if the pains that I was having on both sides last week was me ovulating late.
