Pregnancy test reliability
Can a home pregnancy test, when taken 4 days before a period is supposed to start, show a negative result even though i am pregnant? my period is very regular and was supposed to start the day before yesterday. No sign of my period yet, but 3 tests came out negative - we did them all last week because my breasts r swelling.

You did the tests too early. Test again now.
