There are several things that can contribute to a negative pregnancy test even if you are pregnant. Some medications can give you a false negative, the timing of the test can affect the results. If you did not follow directions properly; if you let the test sit for too long the results may read negative after a while. It is important to read the results within the amount of time given on the instructions of that particular pregnancy test you bought. If you did not perform the test properly (example: you drank a lot of fluids before taking the test, which can dilute your urine). Etc On rare occasions you can encounter a false positive due to improper testing, expired pregnancy tests, rare medical conditions such as certain types of cancer, evaporation lines, a recent pregnancy or a chemical pregnancy.

To ensure the best results:

    * Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highest
    * Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results
    * Take the test no more than 1 day before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period, the percentage of accuracy is very low.
    * urinate for as long as possible on the foam-like strip
    * Check the results in the window frame of time suggested by the instructions of the pregnancy test.

According to the ClearBlue pregnancy test accuracy results they are:

4 days before expected period= 51% accurate
3 days before expected period= 82% accurate
2 days before expected period= 90% accurate
1 day before expected period =95% accurate
the day of expected period =99% accurate
