Can Pregancy Test Be Wrong?

I've stopped my contraceptive 9 weeks ago and had my last period 6 weeks ago. I was on contraceptive pills for a year and half.

I did a pregnancy test on Saturday, but it was negative.

This morning I woke upfeeling really nauseous. (Still am).

Maybe I should try to do the pregnancy test again in a week? But shouldn't the test show positive before you have symptoms? Also how long can you go without menstruating?

It is possible for a pregnancy test to be wrong, but this doesn't happen often. Your absent period and symptoms could just be your body adapting to being off the Pill.
