Teens Only Ask a Question Parents Resources


  I took a pregnancy test and I haven't had any sexual activity for the past month. The test said I was negative. Could there still be a chance that I am pregnant?

Dear Rita,

It is possible you could still be pregnant. You may have taken the pregnancy test too soon after the pregnancy occurred for it to test positive.

It is also very possible that because you are worried, or for any other number of hormonal reasons, you are not pregnant, yet have missed your period.

To relieve any more of your concerns, take another pregnancy test and see what the results are. You may want to visit a clinic or your physician for the test to be a bit more accurate.
