Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

You can repeat the pregnancy test after a week. If you usually have regular periods, then possibility of pregnancy and an ectopic pregnancy should be ruled out first. Your home pregnancy test is often negative in ectopic pregnancy. Other causes are low thyroid function, polycystic ovary, hormonal imbalance, severe anemia, or any chronic illness. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
