Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to us with your question.

It was not too early to test. However, if you have had unprotected intercourse since your last period, it is possible that you are pregnant.

I suggest you buy a name brand test. Test first thing in the morning when you wake up and use the bathroom.

If you get a second negative result, have not had unprotected intercourse since your last period and are younger than 50 years old, please contact your gynecologist, who can order a blood test to rule out a hormonal imbalance.
