How Common Is A False Positive Pregnancy Test And What Causes It?

False Positive Pregnancy Tests

Home Pregnancy Tests

The best way to get accurate results when using a home pregnancy test is to wait until your period late. At that time, the level of hCG in your system will be large enough that all of the pregnancy tests on the market will be able to detect it, producing a positive pregnancy test result.

Most women, who are trying to get pregnant, prefer to find out as soon as possible. That “two week wait” becomes unbearable. There are many home pregnancy tests on the market that claim you can test much earlier, usually 4 or 5 days before your period is due. These early test pregnancy tests are typically about 97% accurate, when all the instructions are follow exactly and you read the results within the time frame listed in the instructions.

What Can Cause False Positive Pregnancy Test Results?

A truly “false positive” test result, due to a faulty home pregnancy test is fairly rare. A positive result which is not repeatable, with subsequent home pregnancy tests, is usually because of one of these reasons:

  • You mistake an evaporation line for a positive result. Sometimes pregnancy tests will leave a faint colorless line in the testing area as the test area starts to dry. If there is no distinct color to the line, you can not interpret it as a positive result.


  • You’ve had a miscarriage or a pregnancy ended in the previous eight weeks. It can take that long for the hCG levels in your system to drop.


  • You are taking a fertility drug that contains hCG. These aren’t particularly common, but they are occasionally used. If you are undergoing fertility treatments and have had a hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) trigger shot, you will need to make sure the shot has had enough time to metabolize through and clear your system. Fertility doctors suggest waiting about 14 days for your system to be clear of the hCG before taking a pregnancy test. Testing before this time may very well likely produce a positive result when you are not truly pregnant.


  • You may missed the reaction time frame. You really need to follow the instructions included with your home pregnancy test exactly. The manufacturer lets you know how long you should allow the test to sit before interpreting the results. If you let the test sit for longer than the instructions state, any results you interpret need to be considered invalid. Reading after the recommended time frame has passed can show results that you will misinterpret as a positive result.


  • You’re using an expired pregnancy test. Usually, a pregnancy test that’s passed its expiration will just not be able to register the hCG, and you’d have a false negative. However, depending on whether or not the test has been exposed to heat or moisture, there is a chance you might get a false positive pregnancy test.


  • You have certain medical conditions. There are some medical conditions that can cause your body to produce hCG even when you’re not pregnant.


  • You’ve had a chemical pregnancy. As unfortunate as it is, about 25% of all pregnancies end up being a chemical pregnancy, also known as an early miscarriage. This happens when a fertilized egg implants in your uterus and your body produces hCG, but then the fertilized egg stops developing because of an abnormality or some other reason. The fertilized egg never becomes an embryo, but you may have enough hCG to test positive. With the advancement in sensitivity of the home pregnancy tests on the market today, women are able to detect pregnancy in the very, very early stages. This is the downside of the super sensitive pregnancy tests – the joy of discovering pregnancy very early on, followed by crushing heartbreak if an early miscarriage occurs.


  • You have an ectopic pregnancy. This means that the fertilized egg implants somewhere other than the uterus. There is no way to move the fertilized egg into the uterus, and it will not correctly develop. An ectopic pregnancy can result in a false positive pregnancy test, although it does not always do so.


If you feel you are having early pregnancy symptoms and not getting the results you think you should be from your home pregnancy tests, you should contact your doctor for a blood pregnancy test.

  • cole

    i took two clear blue digital tests 20 min apart. the first one was positive the second one was negative. is it possible its a false positive?

    • It isn’t something that happens often. Maybe your level of hcg is low right now. If you used two different batches of urine to test, the first one could have been more concentrated as it had longer to build up in your system. If you urinated again 20 minutes later to test, it could be the hcg just didn’t have enough time to build up again. This would be especially true if you haven’t missed your period yet.

  • terri

    My husband and I have been together for 8 years and have been trying to conceive… I have thyroid disease and my cycle has never been accurate. I’m 90 days in which has happened before but this prompted me to take a pregnancy test (clear blue digital) yesterday morning at 4 am and it was positive and then I took another at 3 pm and positive… Now I worry that they are both wrong just cause of all the issues I have had in the past.. What is your opinions? I am making a dr apt tomorrow to either confirm or crush this feeling… Confused and Nervous

    • Hi Terri! Sorry it took so long to reply. πŸ™ Did you get confirmation from the doctor?

  • Jessica

    I took 5 hpt total. First was 3 days before missed period with clear blue digital at 4:30 am, said pregnant. Tested again later that same day results, not pregnant. Decided to wait until the day of my period took 2 more tests this time a store brand both negative results. Now I am 4 days late and toik another clear blue digital hpt says not pregnant. Should I trust the very first test that showed pregnant? Confused…

    • If you tested with first morning urine on the second clear blue, then unfortunately, it sounds like you may have had an early miscarriage. If you didn’t take it with the first morning urine, try again, limiting fluid intake and holding your urine for as long as possible.

      • Jessica

        The second clear blue was not first morning urine. The first store brand was but I didn’t pee for 5 seconds on the stick. I’m now 5 days late for my period. Still no cramping or any signs of it coming.

        • I would suggest that you try again with another test but make it the FMU. If you are pregnant, that should show up positive.

  • Sara

    Hi, I was sterilised 5 years ago and i’m 4 days late (im never late), so I took a test (not morning) said “preganant, i waited til I needed to pee again and took the 2nd to make sure and it came back ” not pregnant”. So I’ve done another this morning (FMU) and said “not pregnant” again…. sooo confused!!

    • False positives are pretty uncommon with the popular pregnancy test brands. The fact that you were sterilized makes a positive even more odd. If your period doesn’t arrive soon, I’d suggest a visit to the doctor and explain what occurred. Sorry I couldn’t shed any sort of light on this issue for you.

      • sara

        Yeah, i have spoken to an out of hours doctor, I’am going for blood tests tomorrow morning (monday) to try and get some answers. I still have no sign of a period but I’am cramping and feeling sick now, so don’t know whether thats a good sign or not

        • Good luck! Hope you get some answers that feel good to you!

          • bianca

            Hey so if you take a pregnancy test right and the first one you take it says negative then the next one to take it says pregnant and then you take another one and it says negative that means your still pregnant right cause the one that said pregnant

          • bianca..


          • PrayinMama

            Not nessecerily no… You could have been pregnant but had a miscarriage things like that you need to see a doctor

  • Jmcat01

    Ok so I took a clear blue pregnancy test last night and it said I was pregnant then I took on this morning and it said not pregnant…idk what go think

    • It could be that you are testing a tad too early. Wait a day and try again. Try and make sure you are not drinking much liquid for several hours before testing so the hcg has time to build up in your urine.

  • Gabby

    I am 10 days late on my period and took a test which to my surprise came back positive, this is because I have PCOS and believed it would be hard to get pregnant. However, after having a positive I took another one to show my partner which came back negative. All together I have taken 6 pregnancy tests and had 5 negative and 1 positive. Why is this, I’m confused and don’t know what to do.

    • Amy

      Same is happening to me, I have Hashimoto’s, which also makes it difficult, but I got a positive yesterday (3 days before due period), 2 negatives today.

    • hazel

      hello πŸ™‚ i got the same situation right now… my expected period was on aug.19 and now iam 7days delayed.. i took pt on the 3rd day missed period.. on the first sight it was neg. but in a few minutes later you will see a faint lines visible of our eyes.. on the 4th day missed period i took another pt and its neg. on the 5th day its same neg. me and my husband decided to go to the ob to make sure we unger go serum blood test and the test is neg. but the doc. says we wait until next week to be sure.. now my 7th day missed period i took a pt again and its neg. but to sign of having a period.. base on my experince this is the first time to be delayed like this since iam very sensitive on my period because i want to be pregnant.. before my period will come on the 3rd day missed.. do you think im pregnant??? plz help.. thanks

      • erum

        Its you aisha sohail

  • Mil

    I did a hpt this morning it was a faint positive I went to the doctors they’re test was negative Iv has a blood test but got to wait for results. I done anothe test when I got back another faint positive help??!!

    • It could be that you have very low levels of hcg. By now, the positive should be much darker if you are pregnant. It could also be that you had a very early miscarriage. If that is the case the pregnancy tests would be showing a negative by now.

      • tasha

        I took two first signal early prenacy test one before my period was suppose to start and one a couple days later. the first one showed a faint line in the test area and it was pink and the second test also showed a faint line in the test line and the second line came up with in one minute on both i have 4 kids and the second line was faint with them also. i took one last month before my period same brand but it was neg and there was not evop line could these test i took a couple of days ago be positive or fake positives?

  • Sarah

    Hi, I went to my Ob-Gyn last week and she made an ultrasound for me. She said that I am pregnant but no fetus/embryo was present. There’s no yolk sac, either. But it said that it’s 6 weeks already, and as I am typing this it’s already 7 weeks. I don’t feel any symptoms that I am pregnant, except for my head aches sometimes and feel tired easily. Is it false pregnancy? Thanks

    • You will need to contact your doctor about this to find out exactly what she means and what it means for you. If there isn’t an embryo present, I would think that it isn’t a pregnancy, unless what actually an early miscarriage that hasn’t completed yet.

  • Krista

    I am 42 yrs old and I just finished chemotherapy for NHL in Feb. , which forced me into menopause. The oncologist told me that I would resume my normal cycle about 2 months after completion of chemo. I got 2 sort-of periods that stopped about 2 months ago . I started getting the hot flashes with no period after that and went for my yearly at the gyn. I was just informed that I MIGHT be pregnant! They said they tested my urine and there was a line in the positive, but was faint…I have to wait now for blood results. What are the chances?!! What does a faint line mean??

  • Ashley

    So I had my period on July 5th and August 6th. It lasted till the 10-11th. I had unprotected sex and my bf didnt pull out on the 14th. Usually I know when my period is coming bc I get massive cramps and I get emotional & grumpy. It’s now the 11th & no signs of my period. Which I expected to arrive around the same time. I took an expired test and said neg so then I bought a new one and took it at night and said neg. yesterday the 10th I drank water all day and up till midnight bc it’s all I rly drink. Today the 11th at 5:30 I took another and said neg. is it possible the water is diluting the test for a false neg? I don’t understand how neg tests but no period. I haven’t changed anything to delay my period. And I find it crazy that it would be “delayed” the month after unprotected sex. I’m not sure if I should wait and take another test, wait for my period, or schedule a doc appt for a blood test. HELP! I’m just not sure if I would be considered far enough based on when I had sex to determine the test positive. Feedback plz. ( & no rude comments, yes I am old enough for a child. & two I do want to be pregnant. Just not sure why neither are appearing )

  • Emily32013

    I had my tubes tied in October of 2012 and I recently missed a period which could easily be due to stress but I took a test Bc I have been nauseous, dizzy And just didn’t feel right. It was negative at first then it showed a faded line positive after the time . Ok so I repeated the test the next day and the same thing happened. I did have a two day period though. Could I be pregnant? There’s no way right??

    It is becoming a common occurrence
    when you do a blood pregnancy test and giving a positive result but the truth is that the patient is not pregnant. Pelvic Scan was carried and showed no evidence of cyesis. It comes worrisome as one of the patient is still intact. Much as i know that a choro – carcinoma can result in false positive, does it mean that these young women are in that group?

  • Amanda

    I’m 4 days late so I took 3 home test and they were all positive. I go to the doctor and it was negative! I don’t know what to think.

    • Danielle G

      What happened? Were you pregnant? That’s happening to me right now. I don’t know what to do…

      • PrayinMama

        Hate to say it but it sounds like a miscarriage you should really see your doctor!

  • Kelly

    I am a week late. I took a clear blue easy test. The line is faint. But it’s positive.. Then I took the dollar store pregnancy test. The line is still faint, but it says positive! Am I really pregnant?! πŸ™‚

  • mike

    My wife and I have been trying for 16 months with a fertility doctor using the creighton model. On 5-20 we saw him and he told her to use fermara once on that same day and keep charting. Once peak day passed start using progesterone. Well it has been about a week without and peak type mucus and she took a test yesterday which came back pos. Is there any way fermara caused a false positive? We have a blood test today to confirm or deny. I have yet toset my hopes up high to see them cut back down, she is pretty excited of course. Hopefully its not a false pos and I can be as excited as her and not have her feel bad for my lack of excitement at this time.

  • Preston Carpenter

    My wife has been feeling real tired lately. She bought to pregnancy test. The first was positive, the second was negative. She then went to Walmart and bought four more test. They all came back positive. She has been eating a lot and sleeping all day. Three weeks later she had a period for about three days. She then went back to Walmart and bought another and it came back negative. Why is this?

    • The first set of pregnancy tests could have been taken early on in the pregnancy where extra liquid intake could have diluted the hcg concentration so it showed up as a negative pregnancy test. The three day period could have been a miscarriage. You should have discussed this with a doctor.

  • Victoria white

    I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it came out negative. ..then i took one this morning it came out positive. ..then later today i took another one and its negative again. ..what does this mean?

    • It could just mean that you are in the very early stages of pregnancy where your hcg levels are very low. If you drink excess liquid before testing it can dilute the hcg level to a point where the test can’t pick it up.

      • Victoria white

        The positive sign was kinda blurry when i took it but minutes later it was clear as day …i haven’t had my period since may 11 and still haven’t got it yet im confused because i have an irregular period. And i dont know what to think

        • Take another test tomorrow first thing when you get up. If you are pregnant, you should get a positive more quickly than this time. You can also go and see your doctor to see if they can give you a definitive answer.

          • Victoria white

            First off i have been on my period since may so
            I got 3 home test the first was (-) .
            The second was (+) and this one was using first morning pee put there was a very faint line
            I took the third later on that evening and it was (-)
            So i decided to go to planned parenthood and they gave me another urine test it was (-)
            Whats going on did i have a miscarriage without bleeding

          • It could be that the period is coming but the miscarriage has not actually happened fully yet.

          • Victoria white

            So im having a miscarriage?

          • That is something you need to discuss with your doctor.

          • Victoria white

            So im having a miscarriage without blood?

        • Savanah

          I would take another test! Best of luck!

  • PrayinMama

    Okay so I’ve had a terrible time trying to conceive.. Me an hubby have been threw hell and back with miscarriage after miscarriage… I took a test a few days ago with FMU and it came back inconclusive( must not have pee’d long enough but today I took one and it’s a faint but POSITIVE result… Last period was in June… I’m really hoping this is a good pregnancy and I carry to term with a healthy babes!!!

    • Savanah

      I am in a simular situation.. I pray everything is going great for you!! Best of luck!!

  • J.Wallace

    I took a first response digital test yesterday it came back with a yes than hours later took another FR one with the lines says no and than today took 4 more and all say no….I have two other children and this never happened also can you still be very fertile after four months giving birth

    • You shouldn’t have hcg still in your system after 4 months unless you were pregnant. It could be the digital tests are more sensitive than the lined one. I suggest that you try testing again in a couple of days to see if the tests show up differently. Yes, you can be fertile 4 months after birth especially if you aren’t exclusively breastfeeding.

  • nicanne

    I was due my period on sunday. Im usually like clockwork every 4 weeks, and im on the pop. So period never came, my boobs are tender as hell, im exhausted, nauseus and queezy. I took a test today which turned positive almost immediatley. Im freaking out. Im only 24. Ive been with my partner for over 4 years, but he doesnt want children until at least 30! What do I do now! How do I tell him? HELP!!!

    • PrayinMama

      You can’t hide it from him you will need to sit down and tell him best of luck

  • H

    My last period started on May 23rd, 2014 and I haven’t had one since! I took a test today, and it was a positive! My boyfriend and I are very, very excited!
    However, the only thing that I am worried about is my existing health issues… I have a prolactin secreting pituitary brain tumor. I was diagnosed with it last year. I just hope that it doesn’t effect my pregnancy!

    • Congratulations! As you have a diagnosed medical condition, you will want to get your doctors involved as soon as possible for your health and your baby’s health.

  • moanie14311

    I was due my period yesterday my last period was 2nd of July. I did a test tuesday night witch came up with a very faint second line, the other was a clear 2nd line. I went to the walk-in-centre this morning due to having brownish like discharge stuff that looked the same as I’d normally get before my period. Any how i gave the doctor a urine sample and she did a test there and it came up negative and couldn’t explain to me why the other two i took where positive. Shes suggested having a blood test done by my gp. She also said that this has happened before and the person had a positive back from having bloods took. I cant help but think she was just sayin that to reassure me but I’ve lost hope now. It really has broke my heart because we did tell close relatives πŸ™

    • Unfortunately, you could have had an early miscarriage if your period did come fully on. If not, a blood test is definitely recommended.

  • Steph

    I recently took an at home pregnancy and the line was very faint so I waited until the morning and took the other one from the box and still got the same faint line. I decided to wait a couple of days and test with a more expensive brand name of clear blue and it said i was pregnant and gave me a 1-2 week digital answer. The following day I went to the doctors to confirm since I am 2-3 days late on my period and the results came back negative. I am so confused I don’t understand how I could have gotten 3 false positives at home and a negative at the doctors…help explain please!?

    • I don’t think you got a false positive. It could be that the level of hcg in your system is lower than what the blood test could detect. It’s also possible that the lab that tested your blood just did a bad job of the test. That does happen sometimes. Until you get your period or the pregnancy tests come back totally negative, I wouldn’t give up hope.

  • JG

    On Saturday, August 9th I took two Clear Blue digital tests and both came back as positive. On Sunday evening, August 10th, I took another digital test that came back negative. Thinking that I had a chemical pregnancy, I took just one more yesterday (August 11th) and it came back as “pregnant 1-2 weeks”. Then I took one more this morning (August 12th) and it came back as negative again. I thought these digital tests were supposed to be 99% accurate??? Anyone have any advice or experienced this before?

    • It could be that the levels of hcg in your urine are on the very low level. The Sunday evening one could be that you had enough liquid in your system to dilute the hcg to a level that didn’t trigger the test. Are you testing before your period should have arrived?

      • JG

        Yes, all of these tests were before my period should have began. I usually have periods every 35 days, today is supposed to be the start of my new period – I’ve had just a tiny bit of spotting though so far…still feeling nauseous, slightly out of it, and with sore breasts. My nipples have also started changing (some strange goose-like bumps appeared). I had some bloodwork done yesterday and should hear back tomorrow. All of these test results have been like an emotional roller coaster!

  • Pip

    I have taken two home pregnancy tests that both said positive. I think I’m am due my period next week, but I am terrible at remembering these things. It might be this week. Everyone keeps telling me that it could just be elivated hormoan and not to get carried away. I definitely feel different but just very confused. Has anyone else experienced this?

    • Typically, if you have a positive pregnancy test, you will be pregnant. You can’t have elevated hcg (the pregnancy hormone) unless you are pregnant.

  • Jennifer Dexter

    I’m about to take a pregnancy test. I was on birth control, but I have been off it for many weeks and I have not gotten my period. I just recently had a baby. She is three months. I wanted to wait to have anymore children. We definitely cannot afford another baby. But I don’t believe in abortion. I guess in the next hour we will see what God has in store for me:

  • Jennifer Dexter

    Its NEGaTIVE!!!!:-)

  • kvanb

    I took two test which came out positive but when I took the doctor’s test at a teen clinic. I got a negative.
    Could the doctor be wrong?

    • There are a couple of possibilities. 1) The lab who ran your blood test did a poor job. 2) Your hcg levels are extremely low and fall below a “positive” result for the lab. If this is the case, you should continue to have positive pregnancy tests. 3) You had an early miscarriage. If this is the case, the positive pregnancy tests will stop as the hcg clears your system.

  • Samantha

    buy a clearblue pregnancy test the one with the words. its says pregnant or not pregnant. i believe it to be the most accurate one that I have found

  • Shyann Brandon

    i took three test and they all have a very faint line are they all three false positives also could having intercourse before taking the test mess with the results ? also i still have like 10 days before my period is even supposed to come

    • That sounds really early to get a positive on a pregnancy test. What brand are you using? It sounds like it could be an evaporation line? Do you have normal 28 day cycles? If not, maybe you ovulated at a different time than you thought.

  • Bunny

    hi…. I have a big concern I was wanting to be a mom, and I took three pregnancy test all came back positive, my period was supposed to be here 10days ago and just now I got it…. does it mean that I lost my baby or that im not pregnant anymore, please help

    • If you got the positive you should go see your doctor so they can confirm the pregnancy with a blood test. They will be able to monitor the hcg levels to make sure they are increasing like they should.

  • Samantha Gray

    I dont get it… 3 posititve and 4 negative pregnancy tests! Im having all the sympoms, ive had 3 kids so I do know them…. I had implant bleeding… I dont get it… im in tears, devastated. I went to the doctors and they took a blood test, and that came back negative for pregnancy and miscarriage. The doctor says it just might be too early! Why did I get 3 positive preg tests then? Please any responce will help?!? πŸ™ πŸ™‚

    • Are you testing with your first morning urine before drinking anything? If you get up in the middle of the night and drink water it can dilute your urine making the hcg concentration lower than the test threshold. Are you still getting positive tests?

  • Canadiangirl

    My husband and I have been trying for a while. I have been feeling different lately. I played hockey this past weekend and right after hockey I was spotting brown. I thought that was weird. Anyways, I took a a First Response Digits. Test at 1230 pm today and it came up positive. I went to the doctors and hour later and their cheap test came up negative. Then I bought a generic brand and took it 3 hrs later it came up negative. My husband wanted me to buy the First a Response test again so peed on it at 3am and it was negative. I am so confused. I have an appointment in a week with my doctor again to test. She thinks maybe I tested too soon after the positive. Help.

    • It could be that you are at a very early stage of pregnancy. If that is the case, increased fluid intake will dilute the concentration of the hcg in your urine which could make a pregnancy test negative instead of positive. Test again after you haven’t had a lot to drink over the previous couple of hours. That will help the the hcg to become more concentrated.

      • Canadiangirl

        Thank you. I’m going to wait a few more days. I will try not to stress. Should I keep in mind that I am pregnant to illiviate the stress?

        • πŸ™‚ If it helps you feel better, absolutely! Good Luck!

  • Concerned Citizen

    So, my wife and I have had two miscarriages this year. We’ve been trying again for a couple of months with no success. Our earlier pregnancies were conceived easily; after only a month or two. She took a test three days ago and had a faint positive line…excitement begins for the whole weekend. She took another test this morning and it came back negative, so tears begin. She had blood work done today and the hcg number came back at like 0 or less than 1.

    What’s this mean? Is there a chance she’s still pregnant, or was it a false positive?

    -She is supposed to “start” today, and she’s very regular.
    -All the right symptoms; inflated/sore boobs, nips look a little different, a little nauseous and dizzy feeling at certain times.
    -The test three days ago was done using blood on a pee test…it’s worked before and it showed up positive this time.
    -Test #2 was urine and showed up negative.
    -hcg test showed up “less than 1”

    Do I have anything to look forward to, or is hope lost? It gets discouraging, and I can’t help but wonder what’s going on. An answer from someone would be great.

    • I am sorry to hear that you are having such a hard time staying pregnant πŸ™ Unfortunately, based on the info you provided, it sounds like there was another miscarriage. Is your wife under medical care for her recurrent miscarriages? If not, you might want to try some herbal supplements to level out her hormonal levels so you can sustain a pregnancy past the very early stages.

      • Concerned Citizen

        Thanks for the response. I don’t know if it was technically a miscarriage, or if it was just a fluke. The line was faint, very faint actually.

        She is RH- and her doctor told her that he’d put her on Progesterone and also she’s to take a baby Asprin every day when she gets another positive test. I think she might have jumped the gun on this one a little. She started her period a day or two after I posted this, so it’s definitely over…whether it was an early m/c or if it was just a false positive. We’re going to just keep doing our thing and see what turns up. We’ll stop “trying” so hard and just let nature do its thing. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.

        Thanks again for the input. I was out of my element posting something on here for the public, but I like when strangers help each other; hard to find people who want to help someone without it benefiting them these days.

        • Good luck. Hopefully you will have a successful pregnancy soon!

      you need to give her some space you control freak, after a miscarriage you are suppose to wait a year or 3 before trying again stop treating her like a cow and treat her like a person. Your being a jurk and only caring about your want for having a kid, unless you want down syndrome you might wanna let her body heal up. If you haven’t been told she could die while pregnant by internally bleeding to death and sorry to tell you the child will not make it with out her until it’s over 6 months old. I don’t understand your want for a child being so strong best advice I was ever given stop trying and it will happen. I have 7 kids don’t think I don’t know!!

    I think I am pregnant- I have a stuffy nose for 2 weeks now! I get tired( no patience) and sometimes a bit nauseous. Also, been having cramps on the lower left side. My cycle is never regular! But I took an ovulation kit and was showing that I had an ovulation on Sept. 27th and 28th. We did the deed on 27th and 30 days have passed and no period yet. I took a test but it wasn’t a morning pee and I did drink tea about an hour prior and it came out negative. Do you think its a false test and that maybe I should try in a week or so?

    • You should try testing again with first morning urine. Unfortunately, due to the fact that you don’t have regular cycles, it is tough to say if the delay in getting your period is due to being pregnant or just your wonky cycle.

  • Not Sure

    I see in several comments that blood results don’t seem to be same day? Is there an average waiting time for getting them back? I took an at home test and I think it is positive, but am not sure as I have a thyroid problem and previously when my thyroid was out of wack my breasts were sore and produced milky fluid which the Dr. said was due to the thyroid messing with other hormone levels. I am making an appointment tomorrow for a blood test but my fiance is out of town and I don’t know if I should say anything until the blood test comes back as we were not planning a child right now. But I also don’t want to wait a week for confirmation. I am mostly wondering if there is any way that it is a false positive. Any help is appreciated.

    • You can call your doctor to find out how long it usually takes to get blood test results back. My guess is that it varies from doctor to doctor. Thyroid problems will not result in a positive pregnancy test.

      • Not Sure

        Thank you

    Hi I did 2 normal pregnancy tests which were positive. Then did 2 clear blue digital which said pregnant 2-3. I then did another clear blue which said pregnant1-2. Today I still couldn’t quite believe it so I brought another test which came up not pregnant?? I went to the clinic and they did a test which came up positive but she said it was faint so most likely very early and to test again in a week? Anyone else had this and had a positive outcome? Thanks

    • If you are in the very early pregnant stage, the level of hcg in your system will vary widely depending on how much liquid you have been consuming. As the pregnancy progresses the level of pregnancy hormone will be much higher so all the tests should stay positive at all times. Good Luck!

  • Mina

    So, I am seriously confused. On Sat. I took 3 hpts… all at different times of the day. One with FMU, one at 3 in the afternoon and one at 11:15 at night. All three came back positive. Monday morning I took another one and it was positive. I was a bit paranoid and took another one Monday night and it was negative. I took three more this morning (all with FMU on Tuesday) and all three came back negative. Now this is where I am seriously confused. I still have not received AF. No sign of it coming for me. I have tender nipples (not the whole breast). I have no idea if I am pregnant or not. Anyone have any advice?

    • In the early stages of pregnancy, your fluid intake can cause your results to vary widely. As much as I hate to say this, sometimes what you are experiencing could be an indication of a very early miscarriage. Keep testing to see if the test stay consistently positive and schedule a visit with your doctor.

  • John

    2 days ago my wife was period then she said she was not period today n take the pregnancy test it show show two line.could be my wife pregnant

    • If the pregnancy test showed two lines, that typically means that your wife is pregnant. She could have been experiencing early pregnancy bleeding. It would be wise to have her see her doctor to confirm the pregnancy and to monitor the bleeding.

  • Ellie

    Im ten days late. So i decided to take a test well i eneded taking 6. I haf 4 from the doc which were a faint positive and i had two digital that came yes. My question is there anyway this could be a negitive positive. My doc is making me go for blood hcg test. And im wondering if it was negitive i would have at least one negitive right?

    • If all of them are showing a positive, then it would appear that you are pregnant. The blood test will tell show how much hcg is there and they will be able to confirm that you are pregnant.

  • Cruz

    I took two at home test and got positive on both. A week later went to a clinic and was positive again. But that was t a blood test. Now 2 months later I’m having period like symptoms and I’m worried and sad.

    • Are you actually bleeding? What type of symptoms are you having? Your hormones will fluctuate dramatically with pregnancy so the symptoms you are having could be just related to your pregnancy progressing. If you are concerned, you should contact your doctor.

  • emily

    I took a pt on sunday and there was a faint line. Took he 2nd one that night – . Took one wed morning still -. But went to docters for blood test don’t feel good. Left them pee for a test and boom +. They took blood and got a call saying it was -! What the heck does this mean???? I’m confused help!!!

    • It could be that you caught the pregnancy at a very early stage. If you continue getting positive pregnancy tests with your first morning urine, I would go back to the doctor and tell them to do another blood test because your tests are still coming back positive.

  • Lindsey

    Hi, I haven’t had my period now for 2.5 months. I have PCOS, and so my periods have always been irregular, but I have never gone 2 months without my period. My breasts felt swollen and my nipple became sensitive. I am 31 years old and took a HPT this morning, FMU and the test was positive. I purposely chose a test that had a distinct difference between positive and negative so I wouldn’t be confused. I am going to take another test tomorrow and if that is positive, will go to the doctor. My worry is, I was always told I would have issues conciving and now all of I sudden I may be pregnant? Any advice would be helpful

    • Having PCOS doesn’t mean you will never get pregnant, just that is can be a lot more difficult to get there. If you get another positive definitely go talk to your doctor about it. Hopefully you will get another positive tomorrow!

    • gel

      I have the same case as you. I have PCOS and I also have retroverted uterus. I have had HPT came out positive. I will have blood test and urine test tomorrow to further confirm if im pregnant. My worry is that I have been having cramps on my lower abdomen and lower back coupled with dizziness. I am praying that the tests tomorrow will come out good because my fiance and I really would like to start a family soon since i am already turning 33 next year.

      • Lindsey

        Awe, best of luck to you! Well wishes being sent your way. At the time I had posted this, I wasn’t sure if I was In fact pregnant, and when I had gone to planned parenthood to confirm, I learned that I was really pregnant. A lot farther along than I expected to be. I then learned I was 12.5 weeks! I never would of thought that, nor had I EVER thought I would be able to become pregnant. Complete shock to me. Let me know how you turn out πŸ™‚

        • Congratulations on your pregnancy! Here’s to a happy, healthy almost 6 months left! πŸ˜€

  • EloiseLee

    I got a positive pregnancy test, then later in the same day, started my period. not an e-vap line (it had color), and I read the test within 3 minutes. It was positive. I’m worried :/

    • This was posted about a week ago? You should know now if it you were just having early pregnancy bleeding or an early miscarriage πŸ™ I have my fingers crossed that it was just early pregnancy bleeding and that everything is okay.

  • Ytalia

    Hello, my period hasn’t been on for almost six weeks but and I’ve taken two pregnancy tests both were negative. I have two children and found out both times that I was pregnant in the third or fourth month could I be pregnant this time and the pregnancy test not pick it up? I’ve had no luck finding answers.

    • Ultimately if you have a history of not getting positive pregnancy tests, then yes you being pregnant is a possibility if you had unprotected sex. You need to discuss this with your doctor to see what she says.

  • kat27

    My period is due on Wednesday of this week (today is Tuesday). Beginning late saturday/early sunday, I started getting some spotting, brownish”blood.” nothing major. I have taken 5 HPT.. 1 (Rexall brand, blue dye) said negative at first (within the 3 minute time frame), then switched to a very clear “positive” after about 25 minutes. Since then I have taken 4 more; all of which have been very clearly negative. The first 3 were Dollar General “baby” HPT, (taken sunday afternoon, Monday morning, and Monday afternoon…after 4 hours without drinking/urinating) and Then this morning I took the ClearBlue Digital with FMU, it came up negative (“not pregnant”). Thoughts? Btw- I am 100-95% accurate with my birth control- taken for 10 years, same time of day, NEVER missed a pill.

    • If the majority of tests were negative, I would lean more in that direction especially since you have been on birth control for so long. 4 days have passed so hopefully your period arrived.

  • Holly M Dobbins

    I have had my tubes tied for about 5 years now. I have all the symptoms of being pregnant. Went and saw a doctor he said I was but did an ultrasound and couldn’t find the baby but did find fluid. The nurse check the test again and said it’s a false positive. I’m tired all the time, Nassau, heart burn, pressure on my stomach and back alot, get car sickness, and haven’t had a period for a month now. What is going on with me?

    • Unfortunately, this is something you need to discuss with your doctor. As they did the ultrasound and didn’t find a fetus, it is highly unlikely that pregnancy is the cause of what you are experiencing. The doctor should be able to help figure out why you are feeling the way you are feeling.

  • Stacy

    I took a clear blue easy digital pt last night after work and it was a positive, but I took an off brand test this morning before work and it was negative, could last night’s test be a false positive?

    • It’s not likely. Clearblue are pretty reliable tests. What probably happened is that the off brand one wasn’t as sensitive at the Clearblue. Did you test before your period was due?

      • Stacy

        yes I did test prior to my period by 3 days. My stomach was upset yesterday and I had a funny feeling just like I did when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. That is why I tested early.

        • Stacy

          What do you suggest I do? Wait till the weekend and try the test again? We have been trying for a few months and well…we got pregnant so fast the first time I thought it was going to be that easy again and it just hasn’t been and I am a bit anxious.

          • πŸ™‚ It depends on what pregnancy tests you have. If you have a brand name like Clearblue or First Response, they will most likely give you an accurate result right now. If you still have the off brand ones, they may take a little while to show the positive. It would seem that you are probably pregnant πŸ˜€ All you need is the confirmation from another test!

  • Jamie

    I took 2 pregnacy tests that said I was positive. I did a urine sample for my doctor and said it was negative. I was detested. I decided to do another test and it still came out positive.

    • If it is early in your pregnancy, chances are you had something to drink before going to the doctor’s office. The extra fluid could have diluted the small amount of hcg that was in your urine and that would make the test not show a positive. My suggestion is to take another test in a day or two and if it is positive, schedule another doctor’s visit and don’t drink anything before going.

  • Dee

    Hi Well Over The Last Couple Of Weeks I Have Taken 7 Pregnancy test 2 of which were clear blues all came back positive and 3+ weeks I’ve been throwing up allot and didn’t have a period last month but i see no changes in my stomach and just don’t think I’m pregnant cause I’ve been trying for years could i be having a psychological pregnancy ?!!

    • If you have taken 7 pregnancy test that have all been positive, then you are most likely pregnant. Go see your doctor.

  • Jenna

    Hi, I took two home pregnancy tests and they both said positive but when I went to the doctor, twice as well, they said it was negative. Any help on why this is?

    • Have you taken another home pregnancy test yet? It could be that the blood test was done too early. If you take another pregnancy test now and it is positive, then I’d head back to the doctor and get another blood test.

  • Jennygrrl

    Hi there, My period came on October 26th. Was intimate on November 8 & 11. Period was then 5 days late but showed up on Nov. 29. It lasted about 2.5 days. I took 2 HPTs on Dec. 9 and they were both positive. Went to Dr. and had a blood serum test and it shows my HCG level as very low (210) Going for a pelvic ultraound tomorrow and freaking out right now. Any insight from anyone?

    • πŸ™ Sounds scary for you. Hopefully the doctor will see a healthy fetus when you get your ultrasound.

  • Diane

    So my last period was on November 8 and it has been pretty regular for the past few months and my period was due December 11 As of today December 15 I still have no period but I do have cramps backache, dizziness and my Breast are really sore and I’m also bloated ,I tested December 14 at 8 with a early result pregnancy test from target and it came back positive so I tested December 15 with dollar tree test at 3 and came back negative what can be happening?? Help anyone ?

    • The one in the afternoon could have been skewed if you had been drinking a lot of liquid before that point. Stick with first morning urine because it is more concentrated. I’d head to the doctor for a blood test if you take another test and it is positive.

  • Ana

    Hi, My period was due on 4th Dec but as I suffered a lot of cramps and breast swelling , I took test on 3rd Dec which was positive. I did 2 tests one in the morning (not first pee) and other one same evening both came as positive. I did Test again today ( not first pee) after 2 weeks wait and it is negative. For last 2 weeks I am suffering from sore breasts, cramps and serious acidity issue. I never had any bleeding. Does it mean the tests earlier were false.

    • Did you go and get a blood test? The first tests would be accurate as they all were detecting hcg in your urine. What could be happening now is your hcg levels are very high and the tests are unable to register them, or you could have had too much liquid that diluted your urine to a level that was below the pregnancy test sensitivity. You really need to go and see your doctor to get your confirmation.

      • vivian

        hi vickie,i have 1yr nd 6mos.old baby still last period is on jan.15-18 until now,on feb.22 i took test in the afternoon the result is positive…does it mean i am pregnant?please help.

  • Berenice

    I took pregnancy test and I tested positive, I don’t want to get my hopes up. How likely is it that I’m pregnant… ? I’m super excited but I don’t want to be heart broken.

    • If you had unprotected sex this month and you got a positive on a pregnancy test, I’d guess that you are pregnant!

  • Emily

    Took a (digital) pregnancy test this morning. It was positive! I read the results at the recommended amount of time. However, it was likely in the urine longer than the stated amount of time. Could this be a false positive?

    • I doubt it. In order to get a positive, it had to pick up on the pregnancy hormone.

  • Cheryl

    I’ve taken two pregnancy tests and both came out positive but I don’t feel pregnant. Frustrated because I can’t get into the doctor until January 6th and I feel like this may be a dream

    • If the tests come back positive, then you are pregnant. Good luck!

      • Cheryl

        Thanks! My appointment is Tuesday and I can’t wait to find out for sure!

  • Greanna Locklear

    Hey I My Last Period Was On Oct 26 And I Havet Had One Since Then I Took Two Home Test And They Was Both Positive . Then I Went To The Doctor And They Told Me My Blood And Pee Was Negative. When I Left There I Took Another Home Test And It Was Positive. And I Have To Pee All The Time, Iu+ Eat All The Time, And I’m More Sleepy The Usally. I Am So Confused Can Someone Help Me Out?

    • It could be that you are in the very early stages of pregnancy. If you have had several positive pregnancy tests it would appear that you are pregnant. I’d take another pregnancy test in a day or two and if you get another positive result, go and see your doctor again.

  • rosse

    My wife OPK kit showd positive for at 28th day and went to saw reproductive clinc and did ultra sound told us teh folical size is 8mm mostly ovulation was over and and on 35th day we had unprotected sex. today is 49th day no sign of periods and but little crams and she did tested PT and came out as positive.
    It was big surprise, she is now 39 years old. Is this is false positive?

    • False positives are pretty rare. You might want to go to the reproductive doctor to see what they say and get a blood test.

  • bbgon

    Hi, my last period was nov. 27. It stopped dec 4. My pd was pretty regular but now im 7 days late. Ive been having some light red/brown discharge (I only see it when I wipe.) I took a pregnancy test today and it was negative. My back has been hurting for a week now. And ive been exhausted. A little abdominal pain.

    • You might want to visit your doctor to make sure you don’t have something else going on.

  • Jane

    I took 3 clear blue test because I was feeling sick. I took
    Two in one day two different urine both came back positive I waited till the next day for my first urine of the day and it also came back positive. I’m
    Still nervous and can’t believe I am pregnant till I get my blood work. I’m so confused if I should believe I m pregnant.. My appointment isn’t for two weeks idk what to do or think.

  • Wendy

    Hi! I’m a17 year old. I missed my period last month. Thought maybe it was because of stress… But decided to go buy. Some pt tests. And I hVe ended up taking 4 so far. And all of them are positive.. I don’t know what I am supose to do from here… I’m so scared. Is there such things as false positives?

    • Unfortunately, if you have taken four tests and they all showed up positive, it’s very likely that you are pregnant. You will have to visit a doctor to confirm and then decide what you are going to do from there.

  • Steve Wills

    Hi Vickie – Question here….We were not trying. Wife felt like she may have a UTI. She went to the “urgent care” facility to simply grab some antibiotics. They tested her urine at the facility and said she was pregnant…WHAT?! So they tested again, that also came back positive. So the dr ran a blood test with the results coming back almost immediately from that test….I believe it was done with some sort of serum of some sort? This blood test came back negative? We will be buying more HPT tonight to do more testing. Have you ever seen 2 positive tests with urine and then a negative blood test (all within a 30 min span)?! Please help?!

    • That’s really odd. Usually the blood tests show up positive, but having said that, I’ve seen several posters here saying that the blood test was negative and the pregnancy tests were repeatedly positive. Where lab tests are concerned, there is always the possibility of technician error that would give the incorrect results. I know this is stressful for you, but all you can do is wait and test again with the urine based tests. You might want to test across a span of days, preferably with first morning urine, to see if the results stay consistent. If they stay positive, you will have to address the issue with the doctor again. Good luck.

  • madison

    I took 3 test the first one was a couple days after my pireod and it had positive right away but the other line faded but didn’t go away.. Then I took another don’t that nest morning and it had two lines agian and then I took one a couple day later and the same thing happens… But I have irregular pireods sometime but lately they have been on the same day.. Evey month but does this mean I preggo!? πŸ™‚

    • If you are getting test results with two lines, even if one is lighter than the other, chances are you are pregnant πŸ™‚

  • amanda

    I took 2 test yesterday and both at first showed pregnant then later one of them said not pregnant. I took 2 more today. And again the same thing. Am I or am I not?

    • As you are early in your pregnancy, it could be the time of day you are taking the test. If you test with first morning urine, before you have anything to drink, that will be the result you want to consider.

  • Diana

    Hi….I’m Diana and I’ve gone crazy…LITERALLY…IVE TAKEN 6 testes and all but one says positive. I went to my doc and that came back negative. I’m 8dpo and I just some advice

    • You need to wait a couple of days. Maybe the tests they use aren’t as sensitive as what you are using thus the negative results they are getting. I’d go back after you period date has passed and make them test again. Their tests should show up positive by that time.

      • Diana

        Thank you much Vickie…my bloodwork came back today and showed my hcg level at a number if 6 (whatever that means)…now I’m terrified because doc said most likely I’m not pregnant

        • They usually consider values under a 5 as not pregnant. You will need another blood test to find out for sure. Time should make the number get larger if you are pregnant.

  • Danielle

    i was 5 days late on my period which is not normal for me not a test came out positive now i started my period at least i think it is any advice for me please

    • Are you saying the test was or was not positive? It’s not clear in your question.

  • Shals

    Hi..!! I had my first day of last period on 4th Dec 2014. In this month I did not have my periods and today early morning first urine test I did on Clear Blue Pregnancy kit and in not time its showed me – — — PREGNANT..
    I am so happy and nervous at the same time. Will be going for my blood test tomorrow morning.

    • Congratulations! I hope all went with with your doctor’s visit.

  • T

    I have a 7 month old baby and as far as I know have not had sex but took a test cause of some symptoms I was having and to my surprise it was positive. Could it be a false positive?

    • Well, that should definitely not be happening if you haven’t had sex. Take another pregnancy test of a different brand and see what it says. If it is positive, you really need to go and see your doctor.

  • Anonymous

    But I’m ON my period and two tests showed positive. Why? I don’t know what to think. I’ve been feeling very different lately so I wouldn’t be surprised. It’s just freaking me out that I’m on my period. Does that mean I’ve miscarried? I’ve miscarried once before, and have no other children. But this feels completely different.

    • It could be that you are experiencing early pregnancy bleeding. If you keep getting positive tests, I would suggest you go get checked out by your doctor.

  • lilrachel

    i had a blood test its positve but sonogram no baby. how is that . and what would cause a positve blood test????

  • lilrachel

    oh ya my tubes were tied 7 years ago

    • You really need to ask your doctor about that. If you had the ultrasound too early it wouldn’t have shown anything.

  • Michella

    I haven’t had a period in 4 years, due to not using birth control..I went for my annual and they said they saw a faint line, so they did a serum test and it came back positive and that I have to do a procedure to see if I still am. My question is after 5 weeks will an empty egg still give off a positive? Can an empty egg stay inside me that long with no symptoms? I’m nervous and confused

    • Why would you think it was an empty egg sac? Unfortunately, I don’t know what the answer to your question is. Hopefully the doctors will be able to ease your mind.

    • khing

      please be careful, ectopic pregnancy may occur, please consult your doctor

  • Michella

    Ok so I went to another doctor to get a second opinion and they said it was negative for my serum even though it was previously positive but the other doctors believed i miscarried because my hcg was a 3 and I had intercourse on December 20 but as I’ve done my research even after a miscarriage, biluted ovum etc I would still be giving off a positive..I’m confused

    • If the ovum was of very poor quality, it could be that it didn’t have the ability to produce the hormones at a high enough of a level to register a positive. I am sorry for your loss πŸ™

  • Keshia

    I had unprotected sex on jan 27 my period is supposed to come on feb 17th but I took a clear blue test and it said pregnant but I went to a clinc and it was negative ! Did I take my test too early or is it because I drink before I went to the Clinc ! Also my stomach is cramping

    • If you were drinking a lot of liquids it would have diluted the concentration of hcg in your urine, resulting in a negative test. Have you tested again since the clinic visit?

      • Keshia

        No but I was four days late on my period but now my period just started so why did I get a positive test the first time ?

  • Leanne

    I recently confirmed through a home pregnancy test that I was 1-2 weeks pregnant, which scared me due to the line of work that I am involved in and never told my employer or immediate family. I took another home pregnancy test 2 weeks later (Feb 10/15 and tested positive stating I was 3+ weeks. Shortly after confirmation of first pregnancy test, about 5-6 major stressors (work and personal problems) on Feb 13/2015 I stared to miscarry. But I never got a chance to go into my doctors to neither confirm not deny the pregnancy…it is now the Feb 19/2015. (6 days later after miscarry began) is it possible for my hCG levels to still be detectable for confirmation of pregnancy/miscarrige?? Due to the work and personal stressors on top of losing my unconfirmed pregnancy via doctor through blood analysis or urinalysis tests, only confirmation I had was via home pregnancy tests. I am looking to go on a “stress leave” of absence from work to handle all the issues I am currently dealing with, not to mention I haven’t had a chance to mourn the loss of this child. I’m going to see the doctor today to enquire about stress leave and I’m worried I may be denied due to lack confirmable hCG levels. how long do hCG levels stay in my body after I pregnancy of 3 weeks and 6 days after start of miscarrige?? Any and all info clarity on this would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks to all for your input into this matter.

    • It’s possible that the levels would have still been there, but as days go by, the hcg will get less. The sooner you can go the better.

      • Leanne

        Thanks a bunch hun. I hard hcg urinalysis done and the yest came back negative. I was told the blood work results should be back at my doctors office by Mon morning. Is it possible to have 2 false positives 2 weeks apart?? Is “false positive” an actual thing??

        • If the tests are being read in the time the instructions say to and the test line has some color to it, then a positive result means the tests are picking up hcg. If you have really low levels of hcg and had been drinking liquids before you went to the doctor for the urine test, you could have diluted the hcg to a point that the pregnancy test didn’t pick it up.

          • Ladykbee

            Just posted can anyone help me?

    • guest

      I had a miscarriage before and the doctor told me not to have unprotected sex for 3 months because they would not be able to tell if I had passed all the particles of conception or if it was a new pregnancy. As the days pass, the levels of hcg decrease. The amount of time it takes depends on what your initial level was to begin with.

  • Guest

    I recently took a pregnancy test and there was a faint positive, it showed up within 3 minutes and my boyfriend saw it too. I’ve taken 3 more after that were negative. I feel pregnant though. I had a baby 7 months ago and I’m having all the symptoms again .I’m not sure what to think :/

    • Have you taken the tests with the first morning urine? That will give you the most reliable results.

  • Megan

    I recently took a pregnancy test and there was a faint positive that showed up within 3 minutes, my boyfriend saw it too. I’ve taken a few more after that and they were all negative. I had a baby about 8 months ago and I’m recognizing the symptoms. Could it just be too early or all in my head?

    • If you aren’t breastfeeding, it is definitely possible to get pregnant that soon. Test with your first morning urine and see what the results are.

      • vivian

        i took a pregnancy test on feb. 22 and there was a faint line,i have 1 yr and 6 mos.old baby,so it is possible i am pregnant?until now i gave her a breastfeeding..

  • Amalie Ramsey

    I am 43 and had a chemical pregnancy two months ago, but tried again last month (neg). This month I swear I am pregnant. I have used 30 HPT over two weeks and approx. half pos and half neg. (at intervals). The BFP were NOT first morning urine, all were after. Most of the negatives were first morning and some other times throughout the day. Yesterday I had 5 BFP and today was neg again. I have had two b-hcg int the past 2 weeks, both were negative. May have been too early. Past two months my cycle was 25 and 26 day. This month I have missed period (4 days according to a 26 day, or 2 days if 28 day). There is no indication of AF coming. My breasts are heavier and a little tender, I feel uterine twitches and pinches (contractions?) not painful. I have had what looks like a mucous plug discharge, two days ago, I am emotional, tired, queasy and have vivid dreams. With all of these negative HPT, I am starting to worry it is something else like PCOS, previous molar pregnancy, menopause… can’t get my mind to be at ease. My LMP was Jan 25, 2015. Any ideas? How can I get so many conflicting HPT results, and am I preg? I am VERY careful with HPT procedures

    • Are you still getting positive tests?

      • Amalie Ramsey

        I had stopped taking the hpt but had an ultra sound an trans vag to see what was going on. I am not pregnant none-the-less having pregnancy symptoms. I’m not sure why, but I found out yesterday that I have a serous cystadenoma on my right ovary that is “small” at 3cm dia. I know these tumors are not generally cancerous but they apparently keep growing until removed surgically. I am not sure how to proceed with TTC. Logically, I know but I still want baby #4 really bad. I am 43 and already having infertility issues… time is not on my side to wait until the tumor gets big enough to operate. So, can I TTC with this tumor and have it removed after the baby is born? I would be having surgery done at some point to fix my grade 4 prolapsed bladder and uterus etc so I would have a hyst at that same time… maybe they can remove the tumor too. IDK. I love my three children greatly but I feel that there is one more up there waiting to come down to our family. Do I wait TTC or do I chance it? I don’t think it can harm the fetus.

        • Unfortunately, in your case, you really need to have a long discussion with your doctor to come up with a plan that is best for you.

    I recently went to the dr about 3 weeks ago for regular check and also to have blood work done because I’ve been having milk discharge and I’m not pregnant, test came out normal and the pap was abnormal. They made me return to do a biopsy which they took a pregnancy test and came out negative before the procedure. I was already a week or so late and the DR was aware! well today i took a clear blue test and the first one was positive and second one was negative! what does this mean?

    • Are you still getting positive pregnancy tests?

  • butterflynmn

    Im 2 weeks late on my monthly. Dr have Mr a pee test and it was positive and then a blood test and it was negative. My periods are screwed up. Could my hormones give a false positive test ?

    • Typically, pregnancy tests only show a positive when hcg is present. Maybe the level of hcg in the blood test was a little too low for it to register a positive result.

  • Ladykbee

    Okay so my period is due on Sunday. I have a 28 day cycle. I had sex in the month once with a condom as wasn’t trying to conceive. Well anyway yesterday I took a digital pregnancy test which said pregnant 1-2 weeks. I was shocked. I took two normal tests only one line. Today another digital, not pregnant. I’ve been having pink and brown tinged discharge today when wiping. Also have cramps. Help am I pregnant?’!!

    • By now, you should know for sure if you are pregnant. Hope everything turns out as you hoped.

  • Kurl

    Am 6 days late, my first test 4 days ago said positive but my second test today said negative

    • Are you still getting both positive and negative tests?

  • sally

    I don’t usually get my period. I am on Junel Fe birth control and maybe get my period once a year. I started feeling very sick lately fatigue and my stomach has been weird so I got my thyroid tested because I have hypothyroid but it came back fine. My doctor insisted i try a home pregnancy test, I tried it in the middle of the day and got a positive. Is it possible I got a false positive? should i try clear blue first thing in the morning?

    • I would try another test. False positives are pretty rare.

  • Where urine tests are concerned, the concentration of hcg can vary depending on how much you had to drink. Test again with first morning urine before you drink anything. If positive, go back to the doctor, making sure you aren’t drinking before you take the urine test there.

    • confused

      how about a blood test that is possitive 2separate blood test and 4 or 5 home test and they all came back possitive could this be right?

  • chasity

    I took 6 pregnancy test all say positive. But I have thyroid problems can this be giving me false positives?

    • I don’t believe that thyroid issues can cause false positive pregnancy tests, but you should call your doctor just in case to find out.

  • EyesisZorn

    I took 7 different pregnancy tests from 3 manufacturers in +/- 48 hrs all came back positive. When I went to see the doctor to get it confirmed the test was negative. The test my doctor did was also a urine test. So did the Dr get a false negative or did I get 7 false positives? Which is more likely and what could cause this?

    • Most likely the sensitivity of the test the doctor used was less than the ones that you were using. I’d wait a week and test again. If you get a positive, return to the doctor for another test for confirmation.

  • kistainkay

    How often does first response give false positives. I took two test and both said positive but I used a clear blue and it said negative

    • Were you testing with the same urine for all the tests. If you used the clear blue later in the day after you had been eating and drinking, you could have diluted the concentration of hcg in your urine, giving you a false result.

  • ChristineM

    Hi… The first day of my last period was February 18th and I believe I was due to get my period Mar 20th. I have done 6, yes 6 HPT’s. The first 4 were positive and different brands. The first response digital told me I was 1-2 weeks, others were clear blue ( very faint positive ) and a no name brand that all came back positive. I did the digital first response for YES or NO, it came back negative. Today I did the 6th and it came back positive. I feel no symptoms aside from tender breasts and slight cramping, I did have intense cramps two nights ago that woke up from a dead sleep…. but before a period my breasts are always tender. I have a very irregular period and was taking the morning after pill frequently for approximately 6 months before this happened. I have taken the morning after pill prior to doing the pregnancy tests, and I did take an anti anxiety medication recently for flying. I have read that they can cause a false positive, or I am just pulling at strings, being naive and am indeed pregnant. Has anyone experience multiple positives, with no symptoms? I cant get into to see my doctor for a blood test for 4 more days. Sooooo any thoughts???????

    • So what did the doctor’s visit show?

  • ajhenderson

    I’m not sure if anyone will read this or not considering mkst comments were 2 years

    • yes. it’s been read πŸ™‚ And you must have your settings not showing most recent posts because there are current posts.

  • pclark

    I took a pregnancy test on March 25 at 7:50 am & it showed up positive.. well that same day i took another test at 4:30 pm & it showed up negative. Im not sure what to think??

    • I think you were probably drinking liquid during the day that diluted the hcg, resulting in a negative result. Did you get additional positive tests?

  • Amanda

    My daughter in law has taken 4 pregnancy test all positive but today went for a scan and they couldn’t see anything they said its could be to early or she isn’t pregnant is this possible when four tests say she is and one said two weeks pregnant ?

    • Most likely, she got the ultrasound too early. If she keeps getting positive tests, pregnancy is likely and an ultrasound will confirm this in time. Did the doctor take a blood test to confirm if she is pregnant or not?

  • jery

    My test come False positive waht its mean

    • False positive is when you get what you think is a positive pregnancy test, but you are not really pregnant.

  • Maria

    Im beyond confused!! 11dpo

    • You could still be testing t0o early. Until your are late for your period, you can’t really take the results as reliable.

  • Jennie Hunt

    I took a home pregnancy test March 8. First urine of the day and hadn’t had any fluids. I kept an eye on the test the whole time. Within a few seconds it came up positive. And it said 1-2 weeks. Went to the Dr April 7 and pee test said negative and no baby on ultrasound. On March 25th a different Dr had also confirmed my pregnancy. What happened? I should be 7-8 weeks pregnant. Also, I haven’t had my period since August 28. But I still have all the symptoms and Ob days my uterus is enlarged

    • Jennie Hunt

      Home test was Clear Blue

      • Have you taken another home pregnancy test? It could have been too early for the ultrasound to see anything unless it was a transvaginal one.

  • Kalina

    I took one clear blue digital test at 3 in the afternoon on April 10 that showed pregnant withing the first minute and then I waited till yesterday morning for my first urine of the day and it was positive and showed up within the first minute. Does this mean I am forsure?

    • It would look like you are pregnant. πŸ™‚

      • Gabby

        Since March my periods have came on time but only lasted Two days and we’re light instead of using 5 tampons a day only used one or two and I usually have my period 5 days March 13 I took two home test both had faint positive this month I went to the doctor April 15 and my urine test was negative they gave me blood test found out yesterday it was also negative thus would be baby #6 I don’t think I’m going crazy I want it bad but nit enough to make myself believe I also assume I may be pregnant with twins I feel fluttering mostly at night or after i eat cookies lol I feel it mostly on my left side and randomly on my right Idk what to do giving up hope

  • Chri

    My .gf took 5 hpts and they where 2 diff brands all positive then had 2 blood test couse she started bleeding. And where negative and they said she was never pregnant. Said not showing no hcg is she pregnant ??????

    • It could be that the pregnancy tests showed a very early pregnancy that ended up as a miscarriage.

  • Gabby

    Since March my periods have came on time but only lasted Two days and we’re light instead of using 5 tampons a day only used one or two and I usually have my period 5 days March 13 I took two home test both had faint positive this month I went to the doctor April 15 and my urine test was negative they gave me blood test found out yesterday it was also negative thus would be baby #6 I don’t think I’m going crazy I want it bad but nit enough to make myself believe I also assume I may be pregnant with twins I feel fluttering mostly at night or after i eat cookies lol I feel it mostly on my left side and randomly on my right Idk what to do giving up hope but I’ve continued taking prenatal and folic acid incase the test are wrong

    • Is your period late? Or did it come eventually?

      • Gabby

        It started today light but it’s almost a week early thinking of taking another test today

      • Gabby

        I started spotting on the third until the fifth it never got heavy and I have my usual cycle on the 7th but I havnt had it still have negative test has anyone ever been pregnant but continues to get negative test is it negative because my body thinks it’s having a period or something

        • Some people end up with negative tests even if they are pregnant. It is pretty uncommon but it does happen. Until you have a real period, I would keep the chances of you being pregnant in your mind. If you don’t get a full period and still keep getting negative tests, you might want to go and see your doctor again.

          • Gabby

            Got another negative the light bleeding that started a week early only lasted two days I’m supposed to go to the doctor tomorrow thinking of waiting another month see what happens next time my period is due they make me uncomfortable like I’m crazy when I go into the doctors my stomach is swollen everyone ask me how far I am I would be 14weeks I believe and I feel moment on both sides of my stomach I’m sure I’m not going crazy but just not pushing the issue anymore because the doctor insist I wouldn’t have any form of bleeding and refuses to do an exam

          • Gabby

          • Gabby


          • Gabby

            They will not check into it without a positive test

          • Gabby

            Thanks seems as the months go by my cycle stage is shorter and lighter I haven’t taken a test in a while but I guess I will I’m still taking prenatal vitamins and stopped smoking cigarettes as well I’ll keep you posted thanks

  • aisha

    Hi.. this month I got my period 3days late (on 17th April). It was not as heavy as usual, but it lasted for 6days just as usual. It was not spotting or light, but just not that heavy. I took a home pregnancy test on the 5th day and it came negative. Could I still be pregnant? I’m really hoping that I am. The only things outside of normal that I am feeling are mild light headedness (I feel somewhat dizzy and out of balance all the time) since around 15th April and there is a strange feeling of tightness in my abdomen. My husband says the feeling of tightness must be minor swelling in my abdomen. Please help..

    • If you had a period that lasted the normal length of time, you probably are not pregnant.

  • Carrie

    I recently took myself off nuva ring beginning of March I had a early period end of March, I was supposed to start my period this Wednesday today is Sunday I have had symptoms of pms but no bleeding I took a pregnancy test today it was positive . Could this be a false reading?

    • If it was a positive result, chances are you are pregnant. What pregnancy test were you using that got a positive result? If it was one of the brand name tests that you can buy at the store, the likelihood of it being a false positive is pretty slim.

  • Imogen

    Hi guys
    So I’m a mum of 2 3yrs old girl .. 4 mths old boy and I think I’m pregnant again … This morning first thing I took a test it was faint + took one this arvo it was the same … This means I’m pregnant right ?… Btw not sure of my last period was all I know if that we had sex on the 3rd April and I got spotting on the 7th which I have never had with any of my pregnancies.

    What will this do to my body since I have just had a baby who I might add was 9pound 3 oz
    Does anyone know the best things to do to ensure I don’t put on heaps of weight as I have been trying to lose weight from my past pregnancy?.

    • Typically pregnancy tests will stop showing a positive result about 3 to 4 weeks after giving birth. As your son is already 4 months old, it would appear that you are pregnant again. πŸ™‚ If you are concerned about the wear and tear on your body, you might want to discuss this with your doctor and see what his recommendations are.

      • immyluree93

        Thank you Very much …. Took another one this morning and it’s much more pink …. When would be the best time to go to doctors … Give it a week or go this week ?

        • If the positive test results are getting darker, you could probably make an appointment now.

  • Bianca

    I took a test right after sex and it said positive could me just having sex interfere with the results at all

  • Dana

    I took a test at 8 dpo with first morning urine and got a blazing positive with a dollar store test, so I tested again with a first response with the same morning urine and got a negative, then tested again with the same urine on another dollar store test and got another negative. I tested again at 9 dpo with a dollar store test and a first response with first morning urine, both were negative, and this morning at 10 dpo another negative with a dollar store test. I’m not sure when my period is due, last month it was 11 dpo. After all I’ve read I haven’t seen anyone get a positive and negative from the same urine, especially not such a blatant positive that I got.

  • IphisIanthe

    If you are passed 6 weeks pregnant, test done by a RN, can a false positive happen from that? Even with symptoms (like morning sickness)?

  • secret

    I’ve been having all the symptoms of pregnancy; nauseous, lower back ache,headache, heartburn, aversion to thing i used to like a lot, agitated sleep, sore breast, tingly nipple. I made several pregnancy test some in the beginning was negative but afterwards I started seing a faint pregnancy line which fade away after few seconds. Now im on my due date for my period but what is strange is 2-3 days before the due date I’m having like very very pale brownish discharge and now on my due date of my period my discharge is still little but reddish brown in color and when i wipe myself i can see little trace of pale blood. I’m so confused.

  • Marie

    My last period was on 4/4/15 and on 28day cycle puts me at 2wks late. I took a test on 5/10/15 in the afternoon was negative. Called OB &his nurse said to take another on day 40 with 1st morning urine that was 5/14/15 & it was negative. I still haven’t gotten my period & have symptoms of backaches, tired, sleepy, eating more/craving, breast tender at times & I look every time I wipe to see if any sign of period but no nothing. OB nurse said to go in Monday to do blood test. Its frustrating cuz we do want a baby. I have kids from previous marriage n hpt would sho. N this would be my husband’s 1st child. So should I have hope of pregnancy? If negative blood test I was told I would be given provera

    • Until you get your period, there is always hope until a doctor confirms that you are not pregnant. Hopefully your visit with the doctor will give you some answers.

      • Marie

        Couldn’t go into the dr today so going in to have test done tomorrow morning. Still with backaches n after cleaning had discomfort lower abdomen so stopped n came to bed to relax. Hopefully it’s a yes tomorrow. I’ve had 2 premise, 2 38weekers, 1 stillborn & 1 miscarriage so we just hope we are

  • janika

    Hi my period is 15 days late took a pregnancy test and came positive very dark lines,after 5 days i did another test and came negative

    • I’d suggest that you contact your doctor for a blood test. Using a pregnancy test first thing in the morning when you get up will give you the most accurate results.

  • Stacey

    I took a pt on Tuesday following iui came back positive on a clear blue and pregnant 1-2 weeks on a clear blue digital 12 hours later took another 2 clear blue digitals both saying not pregnant got cramping but no period could I still be pregnant ?

    • The best results, especially early in pregnancy, are when you take a pregnancy test with the first morning urine. That allows the hcg to build up to a level that the tests can pick up on. As you go through the day, and drink liquids, the concentration gets diluted and can produce a negative pregnancy test result.

  • Nini

    Hi…I took 5 hpt and they all came back with very faint positive lines and I took 2 clear blue test that both said not pregnant….am I pregnant or not??

    • Did you take all the tests with the same urine first thing in the morning. It could be that you are newly pregnant and you took the tests at different times of day and the hcg in your urine was diluted when you took the clear blue tests. Test again tomorrow with your first morning urine when you get up.

      • Nini

        I took the test different times not with the same urine…

      • Helen

        Hi vikie b there is the tests don’t forget the bottom one is from when I was pregnant with my son

  • Helen

    Hi I have taken a lot of home tests and I have had a lot of faint positves . And some negitive . My last period was on 19th April … Please help I don’t know what to do I have been to the doctors and they booked me for midwife what does this mean….

    The first picture , the test on the bottom is from when I was pregant with my son please please help

    • If they booked you for a midwife then I would guess that they think you are pregnant.

  • Kate

    May 25th I took three home test that were all positive. Three days later I took two more because my husband didn’t believe me and they were positive. But that same night I start bleeding and had a blood clot so we took another one and it was negative the next day I went to the doctor and she confirmed I was in fact still pregnant but the bleeding conituned for a few days so we bought 2 more since we had traveled back home on Saturday it was positive but the one I took today was negative. Am I still pregnant?

  • Lee

    Hi I’m wondering if I for sure had a false positive it was six weeks ago n I took a home pregnancy test n it clearly said positive n that I was 1-2 weeks but not I just came from the Dr n she said it was negative n that I have a bladder infection I was in shock that I didn’t ask about the home pregnancy test

  • Nina

    Hi…I was due my period a week ago but it didn’t arrive. I had the cramping and pain but nothing else. I took 2 home pregnancy tests yesterday and both came back strong positive. I am still having mild pain in my abdomen and small cramps but no bleeding at all. Is it an ectopic pregnancy? Or is it just the aftermath of my expected but not come period as I am usually bleeding for 6-7 days? Thanks

  • Chipple

    Hi. I took a first response test this morning and it came up positive straight away,even b4 the control line. But then a few seconds later the line disappeared and it was negative. What does this mean please

  • Santana Kelly

    I have taken the new first response with the curve. First test I did was very light but you can see both lines. Then I took a digital last week and said not pregnant. Today I took another first respose and came with two faint lines. I have an appointment with my doctor next Tuesday and I’m going to see about a blood test. Should I take the test today and last week as false positives? Two tests in two weeks that show the lines make me wonder if the test is faulty.

  • bri

    I took four pregnancy test today. I used two with first response and the other two with clear blue. I took the first time at 1230pm which is first response and it said I am pregnant. I went back to the store and got clear blue took them at different times and said I am not pregnant. Then I took the fourth test it said I am not pregnant which was the first response. My period is 9 days late. What should I do ??

    Hello I have had 2 babies already and I’m familiar with pregnancy signs. But I have low thyroid and haven taken lots of tests first one was negative but still felt nauseous so did another one a few days later and it was positive then I did another a day later and it was negative then another and it was positive then 3 more after and it was negative. Its really confusing I am almost 3 weeks late but docs have taken a blood yes and it came back negative but my thyroid came back abnormal I don’t understand. As I’m getting pregnancy symptoms I hope its nothing to worry about.

    β€œThanks To PROPHETESS MASADE. You are a Godsent, I am pregnant. My husband and I endured years of infertility treatments, disappointment and heartache. When doctors gave up on us, I was devastated. I came across testimonies ABOUT PROPHETESS MASADE HELP and felt that the testimony was written because of me. She understands a woman’s primal desire for a child. Her words and result and with confidence in the abilities in the body that God gave me. PROPHETESS MASADE says that i will get pregnant .This came as a great relief as I had tried EVERYTHING, from aggressive fertility treatments & acupuncture to dramatic diet and lifestyle changes which left me feeling lethargic and depressed and constantly reminded me that I was β€œinfertile.” PROPHETESS MASADE tells us that the gods can’t wait to bless us with children if only we will open our hearts to him. I began to recite some of the prayers and WAS ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED TO DISCOVER I WAS PREGNANT WEEKS LATER! Truly, I have not had my monthly cycle since picking up PROPTETESS MASADE spell. contact her on BE BLESSED, IT WILL HAPPEN

  • yari

    Hey, well i need help here hope yall can help me. My “period” came down on friday very light with clear stretchy discharge, hardly bleeding only acouple of blood on pad and when i wipe myself,it stopped yesterday. Ive also been feeling light headed,minor back pain,weak,tired lost of appetite, usually i always have strong cramps and be bloated before getting my period but not this time. And they last me 5 to 6 days… i did a home pregnancy test today came invaled and after an hour i looked at it again it came out negative….could i be prego????please help

    • If you are sure that is when your period was due (It sounds like it could be ovulatory bleeding if not) then you should take another pregnancy test in a couple of days using your first morning urine if your period doesn’t arrive fully.

  • shari

    Hi…i got my period yesterday morning but it was really weird. It was on and off, cramping on one side for a short time and a lot of back pain and also 2 days late so i had an idea i may have been miscarrying. I did a test last night which came up with a faint positive line. I have just done another 2 today (different brand) and both of them were negative. Period is still on and off with small clots and back pain but no cramping. Should i bother with the dr or put it down to a false positive and a weird period ?

  • Marie W.

    Hi, my period was 4 days late so I tested at home and it came positive. The next day (5th day) I got my period. Was that a false positive or just a chemical pregnancy? Thanks

    • Sarah-jayne Fisher

      False positives are hard to come by but happen, but as for saying the later I’m no expert and not sure.
      This also happened to me end June -mid July + and then – and same day as the – I bled but didn’t feel like a mc/ chem.
      hope it helped u feel a lil easier.

  • Lauren Camp

    I have now gotten 13 positive ovulation tests in a row after having sex every day since the first positive one. My period is very sporadic because I stopped taking the pill in February after being on it for 12 years so I won’t know when I miss a period. I took a hpt yesterday and it was negative. I’ve had dry mouth, slight nausea, etc. Could I be pregnant? I’m not sure when a test will/could become positive if in unsure of my period.

    • I guess the possibility of you being pregnant is there. I am not sure if you have had your doctor check you out, but women with pcos typically don’t have good luck with ovulation tests due to having higher than normal levels of lh. As you already, know, it is really hard to predict the possibility of being pregnant when your period is so irregular.

  • Katie Edwards

    I elwent to doc 1 week ago and was told I was 3 weeks pregnant. They took 3 tests all at the same time I’ve had 2 miscarriages since I was 18 and they called me today I went in and they did a test again and they said that it was a false positive pregnancy. How is that even possible?

  • Ash

    I took two first response and they came up positive but every other test I take is negative ….except one that showed up an hour later…. Do you think its a chemical miscarry … ;'(

  • corrie

    I’m on birth control but I recently started feeling really different.. I took a hpt around 2am and didn’t look at the results because I fell asleep, when I woke up it was positive. The next day I took one in the morning and let it sit in my bathroom while I went to the store, when I got home it was a very faint positive. Then the next morning I tried again and it was negative. I haven’t had a chance to go to the dr yet but what does this mean? Am I pregnant or not?

    • You really need to take the test with your first morning urine and read the test within the timeframe that is on the instructions. Usually, you won’t get a positive result unless the test picks up hcg – the pregnancy hormone.

      • corrie

        Update on that, today around 11 I abruptly started bleeding alot… it stopped about 20 minutes later. Around 4 I went to birth right and it was negative. I’ve been bleeding ever since on and off ): I’m scared that I miscarried so I’m going to talk to my mom about getting me to a doctor

        Hi im 3 days late on my period and on Monday as i used the bathroom to urine i notice fainted like watery ligjt blood i was happy knowing my period was coming which was due the same Monday May 3rd, so i started wearing painty liners thinking it would come but then nothing came so i did a ept pregnancy test and it showed a fainted line, after urinating like 8 times i went to the doctor and my urine was so extremely light yellow kinda looking more like just water and the nurse did a urine test and it was negative, she said their test are always acurate 100% and that ept and other brands on market always give negative positive results

    Yesterday I took a digital home pregnancy test and it said pregnant. I have since taken four more. Three were negative and one was error. What does this mean? We are really excited about the positive test, but I’m worried I may not be pregnant.

    • Brittanie Carmona

      Were you pregnant? This happened to me a couple days ago so curious to know!

  • Kristen

    I started a birth control pack mid cycle. I am now 4-5 days late on my period which never happens. I took a pregnancy test and it was positive but my left ovarie has been cramping the last few days and really bad this morning. My breasts are sore but I don’t feel like I’m pregnant. Could it be a false positive?

    9 weeks pregnant with no yolk sac, should I wait

  • Poizon

    I took a test as a joke and it was positive. Went and got blood work, positive again. I took another later the next day positive and one more a few days later. Still positive. They did an ultrasound and saw a little line in my uterus but were nervous of a.”threatened miscarriage” according to my period being late and the time of conception, i should be about a month but i’m still nervous of a chemical pregnancy. This late in do you think I’m really pregnant or should i check on random to be sure?

  • Megan

    I took a clear blue prey test a few days ago and it came back beg then two days later I took another clear blue test first thing in the morning and it came back positive, very quickly. The next day I took an EPT test and it showed up positive, but after looking at it a few hours later the pod line was much more faint. Do you think I’m pregnant? I am not late for my period for a few days.

  • Sherry

    Hello soo I’m emtional cramping on and off on the left side and back too. EWCM for like 10 days, sometimes yellow sometimes pink at the moment it’s clear with white. I’m confused. My cervix is high closed and firm. Two days ago I had to stop becuz I thought I was going to throw up. Nipples hurts and pee like 3 times every night!!! I’d be 5 weeks by now. Any ideas??

    • Going to be a silly question, but when is/was your period due, and did you take a pregnancy test?

      • Sherry

        I was diagnosed with PCOS. My last period would put me at 5+ weeks.
        I don’t have money for a test :/ but in sept when I felt this way… I had gotten 5 faint positive tests urine( shown in picture below) and 3 negative blood tests. Doctors were confused by both results. I had toast with jam and butter today and it have indigestion, never had this before im sooo confused. Also yesterday I had brown snotty looking cm. and also a bit of EWCM with bright red I whipped… And then absolutely no sign of period after that. I don’t know what to do.

    Hi. I only had a 2 day light period that started nov. 2nd well yesterday nov. 20 went to have ssurgery and they did a pregnancy test before since I’m not on b/c and not fixedwell Iit came back positive so they couldn’t do it. The line was very bright. But me and my husband have been trying and wanting this day for a long time. Do u think it could be a false positive. i have been nasuas and tender nipples and everything. Got appointment with obgyn Dec 1st just want some advice

    • If it was a definite positive on the test, I would consider it a positive. False positives are usually kind of faint.

      • mckayla

        ok , so I last had my period on October 22, 2015 . I had unprotected sex around November 14, 2015 . I started spotting for like 1 day very pinkish color .

I still haven’t had af come yet and if I am pregnant then it would be 5 weeks and 4 days today . am I pregnant you think ?

  • Kayla

    I’m 19 and if I am will take responsibility for it and love and raise him/her but is it possible to come up positive on 2 pregnancy test and not be pregnant

    • KC

      Same situation. I’ve taken two tests both positive. I have some symptoms but something tells me I’m not. πŸ™ I go to doctors soon.

    • d8106red

      Kayla I just got back from the hospital where i had 2 pregnancy tests that were positive and then they took a 3rd one because my blood work did not show i was pregnant and it was negative. This is very rare, but can happen.

  • Emma

    Hi I had a miscarriage recently and a about three weeks later I wanted to do a pregnancy test for a negative to see the proof I am no longer pregnant but it come back positive so I left it another week and done another same result positive. Not had my period my nipples are sore and I’m getting slight cramping in total now I’ve done 9 test and two clear blue that say the weeks and that I am pregnant yet when I had blood results back for pregnancy it said not pregnant but I’ve done a clear blue again since which indicates I am pregnant. Doctors say the hormones from the miscarriage will not show on the test results and if it was a phantom pregnancy it wouldn’t show on a at home kit……….so confused anyone else had the same experience?

    • Kristen

      I have had that same thing happen to me. I had a D&C and about 10 days later I was still bleeding and cramping heavily. My doctor told me to take a pregnancy test and it came back positive. She said that after you have a miscarriage you can produce a positive pregnancy test for up to two months depending on how high your hormone levels are. That can also be why you were still having symptoms of pregnancy. I hope this helps!

  • Sami

    I’ve had 4 faded positive tests…took 2 one week and two the next week…all faded positives…then I took a First Response yesterday…another week later and it was negative…I’m anemic & was wondering if HCG levels would be lower…I had unprotected sex on the 6th of Nov. & I was ovulating then…it hasn’t been a full month yet but I just haven’t felt like myself…I had a 2-3 day period with just spotting 2 more days after that but idk if its all in my head and I want a baby so bad I’m causing this but 4 faded positives? That’s pretty rare….2 cheapy Dollar general ones then 2 that were a different brand so idk…I need another womans opinion…

  • Alex

    I took a test and there’s a faint line saying positive; I took another the next day and haven’t taken one since, the second said negative. I have been feeling cramps, pain, soreness everywhere; a weird feeling really high up under my boob alittle bit. Tightness and I feel like a hard little ball, my boyfriend also felt a throbbing type movement yesterday/ What should I do? People have been freaking me out

  • Jo

    Are these positive or negative readings , they are only faint. Three days before period due

    • Ashley

      Clearly Positive

  • Kit

    I dropped my test on the floor after dye ran across screen. I was trying to see if there was a line… positive or I dropped it? I see a thick line with color

  • Pilar

    Yesterday I took a test with clearblie digital it said pregnant 1-2 and this morning I took another one and it said not pregnant.

  • Talz

    I took 2 regular pregnancy tests and they came up with faint lines, then I took 2 digital first response texts and those came out positive. But when I went to the doctor and they did a pee test it came out negative does that mean I’m not pregnant? Waiting for blood test

    • Lexi m

      What ended up happening were you pregnant

    • Thermal deal

      were you or were you not pregnant ?

  • Alicia

    I just took 3 pregnancy tests. The first one was positive and the other two were both negative. I made a dr appt but what are the chances of having a false positive? Why would the other two say negative? πŸ™

    • Kimberly Walker

      If you took the tests around the same time then maybe the hcg levels became diluted in your urine with frequent urination. Especially true if you are in the early stages. They say to test first thing in the morning when the contents of your bladder are the most concentrated.

  • Renee

    Hi my period is due in 3 days, I took a test yesterday and at first the second line was faint but the longer it sat the darker it got. I have PCOS and due to a previous ectopic pregnancy I only have one tube. I know it’s not impossible to get pregnant because I had my daughter but I tried for years to get pregnant with no luck. I’m just in shock if I am because I was told it would be very hard for me to get pregnant. Do you think it could be a false positive. I will wait until I miss my period to test again . I just have no one to talk to and need that right now.

    • Thermal deal

      were you pregnant or not ?

  • 2ndTimeMommy

    Po4s and they all came out positive. The next day I went to get it confirmed at doctor’s office and the urine test came back negative they sent me for a blood test. Supposed to find out on Monday. Anyway I came home and ended up po4more all have been positive. Used clear blue plus and digital. Frer digital and plus. And 1 dollarama test. The waiting is killing me. Not to mention stressing me out. 1 more day. Hoping for a happy ending! Fingers crossed.

  • star77

    Hi, Need some advice please I’m totally confused.
    I decided to do a pregnancy test as been feeling sicky for a couple of weeks and needing the bathroom heaps more than usual eating so much more than usual ( unlike me ). I did a first response 29th april day i expected my period, i used my fmu but it had been stored for few hours while i waited for the postie to bring my tests, well within 2 minutes there was a very faint positive result. so to double check it was right i did another with fresh fmu on 30th and again 2nd may came back negative, i opend all test and the faint positive line is still seen on the first one 4 days later and nothing on the others.
    I have no idea if it was a false positive or the other are negative, are false negative results. i have a doc app in the morning as i have had a previous eptopic about 11 years ago i have a blocked tube, and PCOS so as soon as i saw the faint line i went straight to docs to book app due to my history its driving me crazy really, i have no bleeding few cramps but nothing too painful and its not all the time every now and then.
    I have read of a chemical pregnancy is this what is likely to be?
    Is there a chance for some reason my fresh fmu is rubbish lol as i remember when i used old urine when i went it was a lot darker then my fresh used fmu.
    Any advice please thank you.

    • Tessa

      Always use fresh urine, the dark urine just means you weren’t very hydrated but don’t hydrate too much as this can dilute the hormone needed to detect a pregnancy.

    hi..i was 11 days delayed and i took 2 pregnancy the first try the 1st line was a bit faint and on the second time the 1st line was more visible than the first time so i expected that i was pregnant but when i went to doctor they tried another pregnancy test there and it came out was very confusing..

    but 3days before i tried the pregnancy test i got some blood spot on my underwear so i thought it was my period but it just a blood spot then on the next day there was no any blood spot.

    those scenarios really confused me if im pregnant or not πŸ™

    • Tessa

      The spot could have been implantation bleeding. Implantation bleeding occurs when the egg implants into the uterine wall. Lots of times it looks like a blood spot. Sometimes it looks more brown. It is often mistaken for period spotting.

  • poptart

    Hi! I’ve took 3 tests in 2 days & it’s really givin me mixed answers. The 1st the control line was there then after 10 mins ( recommend wait time) the result box had a line but no line in the control widow. 2Nd test after 10 mins it was a normal positive test. Test 3 was first thing in the morning & after 10 mins it was negative. I had a late period in may but it only lasted 3 days & was very light. Its not yet time for my period again but I have signs of pregnancy. I have heighted smell, like I could put a bloodhound to shame, nauseous, tired, extremely thirsty, list goes on. So I’m extremely confused!

  • payge

    I have been having symptoms of pregnancy and have taken test in the morning and afternoon 4 out of the 7 i have taken are positive and i took them in the mornings. Went to the ER today in the afternoon and took a urin test and they said its negative and im not past my missed period yet. Should i wait for my period or go get a blood test. I just dont want to look silly if i turn out not to be.

    • Sandy

      Wait until your period should start. Then, if it’s late, do a blood test

  • Maddie

    Hey, i need some help. I took 2 pregnancy test before my missed period and both read negative. Even after I continued with symptoms and I was suppose to get my period on the first of July, still haven’t gotten it so I took another pregnancy test on July 11th and read positive. To make sure I went to the clinic today and read negative, I’m so confused and still no period, all the posible pregnancy symptoms and still not sure if I am or not?! What should I do?

    • Melissa Fraser

      I am also having the same problem. I took one test and it came back positive…. 2 days before expected period. Made a doctor’s appointment and they took a urine sample to confirm. Then on the day of my expected period I took a digital test that did in fact say I was pregnant. Called the doctor… Their test was negative! Even though I know I’m pregnant from the symptoms and the fact that my cycle runs like clockwork. Now they insist I come back from another test… 6 days after missed period!

  • Jho

    I have 2 pt this morning 1st is 2nd line was faint after an hour i try again its positive how come that happen he didnt come inside me.

    • candice

      You can still get pregnant as seman leaks during intercourse

  • Zoi

    Hello guys! I did two pt in the middle of the day and they were both positive. But I just had my period, so how can this be happening? Can you please help me? Can someone has a normal period and then on the 11 th day riding out that she is pregnant? Thank you!

    • candice

      Implantation bleeding can be mistaken for a period

  • Loz

    Hi can anyone help me please?
    I took a pt on Wednesday 12.10.16, in the afternoon and it came up positive with a faintish line, since then over the next 4 days I have took a lot of PT’s again and they have all come up negative :/ anyone know what to suggest?

    • When were you taking the other tests. You will get the most reliable results if you take the test with the first morning urine. If those come back negative, it could be that you have had an chemical pregnancy.
