Yes: The blood test is more sensitive than the otc urine test, so it will be positive before the urine test may turn positive. ...Read more

Possible tumor: There are several things that can cause an elevation in hcg, the most common test used to document pregnancy. However, this is also elevated in some tumors. I am sure your ob/gyn will be obtaining additional studies and do addition imaging evaluation to find out why. ...Read more

Test not 100%: The test is based on the level of a certain hormone in your urine, and you probably just had low levels of this per body weight until your 7 th week. Hard to analyze this any more than that, also helps to check in the morning on a first urine specimen ...Read more

Hmm, well...: The negative test and fact that your period is now present would go against being pregnant. It does sound as if you were pregnant though in the recent past. Miscarriages are more common than you would think, and maybe your body was not ready for pregnancy. Not definitively sure though, ..you need to see the GYN Doctor as you need an exam to treat you either way. Best wishes, God Bless ...Read more

Can repeat in 1 week: Might be pregnant. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

Possible follow-up: Qualitative pregnancy tests of either urine or serum may screen for different "cutoff values" for hcg; therefore, early in pregnancy some qualitative tests may be positive and others may be negative depending on the manufacturers cutoff for a "positive" level. With time all qualitative tests become positive as the levels of HCG rise. Repeat the urine test in a few days to a week to know for sure. ...Read more
