Pregnancy tests are more reliable than ever before, but that doesn’t mean there is no room for error. In fact, there is still quite a bit of room to get the wrong reading from a test. This is especially true when it comes to false negative pregnancy tests. A false negative means you see a negative result but you are actually pregnant. The most common reason for getting a false negative pregnancy test result is that the test has been taken too early or there was some error made when taking the test.
