What causes undetected pregnancies?


Answer by  Bennifer (42)

Reasons for undetected pregnancies include being tested too early, the fetus is farther back in the body so movement is not felt, and regular spotting mistaken for a period.


Answer by  linckia2000 (21)

Most of the time it has to do with either reading the pregnancy test wrong or taking it too soon. What pregnancy tests are looking for is a hormone known as HCG. The embryo normally releases this around the first week of being pregnant.

The first would be taking a pregnancy test too early. If uterus is further back, the baby is further back toward the spine making it hard to feel the baby until much more developed. Being extremely obese can also cause an undetected pregnancy.

Pregancies can be missed in the early course if there is an ectopic inplantation. The hormone levels to not rise as quickly and thus may be missed by convention pregnancy tests.
