Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

The answer is no, a hormone imbalance won't show up as a false negative. Pregnancy tests look for the hormone hcg that is only found in pregnant women. It's not in your body unless you are pregnant (and sometimes in the days after birth or a miscarriage).

It could be that your imbalance is causing difficultly in you getting pregnant and if you've been trying for a year, it may time to talk to your doctor about looking into fertility options.

Our best to you,
