False Negative Pregnancy test after Depo?

My daughter thinks she is pregnant even after several negative pregnancy tests.  She was on depo for 9 months after the birth of her son and then she stopped taking it because of weight gain.  I have tried to reassure her that she is not pregnant.  Is it possible to get false negatives?  She has not had a period since the birth of her son.

I have had 4 children n after my second i went on the depo i came off after 2 injections because of weight gain and i didnt have a period for up to a year. Ithen went on n had another baby who was 8 weeks early and still born and again thought id try the depo as i wasnt prepared mentally to fall pregnant again and again icame off after a few months and i never had a period until about two month before i fell pregnant n im only 8 weeks pregnant now so plz dnt read to much into it go to your doctor im sure he will sort her out keily

yes it's possible get false negatives. if she's that worried she should go to her ob/gyn and get a blood test done and get on another form of b/c as well as using condoms.
