Is it possible

Q: I think I am pregnant but my urine pregnancy test (HPT) is negative. Can I still be pregnant?

A: You can still be pregnant despite a negative HPT. About 98% of HPTs are positive by the time a woman has missed her period for a few days. But not every woman will be positive by that time. If you think you are pregnant despite a negative HPT, you should see your doctor for a quantitative blood hCG test.
