Can drinking a few glasses of water but holding it in for a few hours give you a false negative on a pregnancy test but 5 weeks along. 
?

It increases the: possibility of a false negative, but there's no certainty. HCG levels rise almost exponentially in the first trimester, so eventually it will turn positive no matter how much water u drink and how much urine you hold in your bladder. If it's merely a concern whether or not you're pregnant, get a first morning urine spec. when the urine is most concentrated. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

I am 19 days late. Last week i took a pregnancy test, which was a negative. Two days ago i started lightly spotting brown liquid. Could i be pregnant?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. It isn't healthy not to drink. Might want to cut down on things which will act like a diuretic like coffee or tea. There are many reasons for possible symptoms. Did your doctor check a fasting glucose level on you as sometimes people with diabetes feel thirsty and urinate more often. I don't know if you are having your period regularly. If not and the first pregnancy test was before or right at the time of a missed period, may wish to wait 7 days after a missed period and then retake the pregnancy test. I hope this might be helpful. Take care. ...Read more

Can drinking too much water determine the results of the pregnancy test?

Not really: Drinking "too much" water, and i'm not really even sure what that means, could only potentially cause the pregnancy test to be negative if it is actually positive as there won't be enough HCG to trigger a positive result. The first urine of the day is usually the best time to do a pregnancy test as it is typically when a person's urine is the most concentrated. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it possible for you to take a pregnancy test if you been drinking?

Is it possible for you to take a pregnancy test if you been drinking?

Alcohol is the commonest avoidable cause of mental retardation in the baby.You should do the home test 4-5 days after a missed period. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the kit carefully. ...Read more
