I had one positive pregnancy test and three negative after. Which do I believe?

I had one positive pregnancy test and three negative after. Which do I believe?

The negative: It is common to have an initial "chemical pregnancy" where the sperm and egg meet and begin the implantation process only to quickly fail. The result is an initial elevation in beta human chorionic gonadotropin, or hcg, followed by a "failure" of the implantation process to complete resulting in the negative tests. If these were subsequent to the positive test it is likely you are not pregnant. ...Read more

If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

I had hgc of 960 three weeks ago and 90 two weeks ago but had faint pregnancy test a few days ago. Does hgc slow down at certain levels?

I'm sorry: I'm sorry to inform you that falling BHCG levels are a sign of an abnormal pregnancy. With a BHCG or 960 3 weeks ago you should be 6-7 weeks pregnant now. HCG levels double every 2-3 days in normal pregnancy's. See a OB/GYN immediately to manage your miscarriage. ...Read more

Unclear question: Did you miss a period? Home pregnancy test should be done more than 5 days after a missed period. Use first morning urine and follow the instruction in the kit carefully, including the time frame within which the result should be read. You may wish to redo the test after you are 4-6 days after the due date for your period. ...Read more

Likely: Home pregnancy tests are as reliable as blood tests if done properly.

Prenatal care is very important, so if you believe you really are pregnant, you should seek a second opinion. ...Read more

Recently had positive pregnancy test was bleeding for three days 1st day heavy tested again was negative but could I still be pregnant?

Unlikely: If what you're saying is that you had a positive pregnancy test.... and then after that test you had 3 days of bleeding and then you took another test and it's negative, then likely you aren't pregnant anymore. You can take a confirmatory test (I'd wait 3-5 days), and make sure, but sounds like you miscarried. See a physician if you're worried or bleeding continues for > 7 days. ...Read more

My girlfriend took a pregnancy test three days after conception and it says positive with a very faint line should we trust it that early? No kid please

Maybe, maybe not: These tests can be misinterpreted, false positive or false negative. They are more likely to be false negative early on then false positive, but interpreting what is thought to be a faint color change is not definitive either. I would repeat the test with a standard brand hpt, not the dollar store variety, & if concerns remain have the blood test run. ...Read more
