We're not sure of the exact percentage, but it is at least 10 percent," says study leader Dr. Allen J. Wilcox, senior investigator at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
The false negative results occur because the time for the early embryo to become implanted varies from woman to woman, Wilcox says.
There are literally dozens of kits on the market, and none of them include the level of sensitivity" of the laboratory test, says Wilcox.
A false negative might be dangerous for some women, Wilcox says. "If a woman has a job where she is exposed to things that might not be good for pregnancy - say a nurse who works with chemotherapeutic agents - a false negative might tell her not to worry," he says.
Wilcox says, "If you get a negative result on the first day of your missed period, don't regard that as ironclad proof that you are not pregnant.

"Five percent of children with birth defects is not a whole lot," Allen J. Wilcox, M.D., Ph.D., said, "but it still is more than double what we see in the children of unaffected fathers. Dr. Wilcox is chief of epidemiology at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, one of the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
"What surprised us," Dr. Wilcox continued, "is that the children of the affected fathers had a higher risk of all kinds of defects, not just the same defect as their father. In our earlier study of women with birth defects, this did not appear to be the case: The children seemed to have no special risk of birth defects except for the specific defect of the mother."
Dr. Wilcox' co-researchers are Rolv T. Lie, Ph.D., and Rolv Skjaerven, Ph.D., both professors at the University of Bergen.
"We also need to put this into perspective," Dr. Wilcox said.
