Is it easier to get a false negative in the urine test than in the blood test?

By Andrea Rodrigo.

Yes, because of the higher sensitivity of home pregnancy tests, it is more common to get a false negative result. To avoid this, it is necessary to do the test correctly, i.e. with the first urine in the morning and on the indicated day.
