Is it possible to have early pregnancy symptoms but test positive? I've been having headaches, nausea, a little sensitive to smell.

As: As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a young, fertile woman is having pregnancy symptoms, a missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. ...Read more
