Can The Doctors Office Pregnancy Test Give A False Negative
Bloated for almost four months now. Took a pregnancy test at the doctors office, came back negative. Should I be concern?

Took a pregnancy test the week my period was due at the doctors office and it tested negative, but my period has yet to arrive?
Repeat test: Typically, urine pregnancy tests are positive around the time a woman expects to come on her menstrual period. However, if conception was later than anticipated, the menstrual period may be delayed and the pregnancy test may turn positive a little later. Repeating the test a week from the previous one may be a good idea. ...Read more

Is a first response early result pregnancy test more accurate then a dr. S office urine test? My home pregnancy test was pos but doc office was neg!
Not likely.: No test is 100% accurate, unfortunately. I'd suggest waiting a week, repeating the home test, and if it's still positive, going back to your doctor's. If the doctor's office urine test is still negative, your doctor can order a blood test for pregnancy, which is more accurate. ...Read more
I had a pregnancy test at my doctor's office last week and it came back negative. I'm seeing signs though. What should I do? I'm scared!
Did you have unprotected Sex? Did you miss a period? If the answer to either is no, testing for pregnancy would be premature. If the answer to both is yes, and you are more than 7 days past the date of the period, do a home pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
What does it mean if a home pregnancy test was positive, but the urine test at the doctor's office was negative?
Timing and technique: Was first morning urine used either time? Did you follow the instructions carefully, including the time within which the test should be read after adding urine?

Pretty quick...: ....probably as soon as you notice a missed period, but if you want to do a stealth attack on that poor little thing growing in there, then, depending on the test, about 10 days. Why? You taking bets? BTW, a commercial, over-the-counter urine test is pretty good. And just think, instead of waiting at the doctor's office you can wait in line at Rite-Aid! ...Read more

Will a urine pregnancy test done at the doctor's office be accurate 19 days after suspected implantationn bleeding ended?
Trust the test: Urine pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors 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

If no sex since...: If a woman has had no sexual activities since delivering her baby, she cannot be pregnant again. If she did have sex recently, and has a positive pregnancy test, there may be another cute little baby on the way. A repeat urine pregnancy test done next week can give the answer. The tests are very accurate, but if worried about accuracy, one can test with two brands of home pregnancy tests. ...Read more

I took a pregnancy test at the dr office that came up a faint positive and two home tests since then that said negative. What should I do?
Defer to Doctor: Your doctor would have put in place a plan for your pregnancy if you were positive at the doctor's office. Blood tests would have been ordered and follow up visits scheduled. So, your scenario of being sent home and then continuing to do urine home pregnancy tests makes absolutely no sense. I think I would defer to the doctor who you are seeing in real person as to what to do next. ...Read more

If you have been having unprotected sex for a year or more, you need to consult a fertility specialist. If it has been less than a year, you may wish to time your sex better by learning to find out when you may be ovulating. ...Read more
Is it safe to take medroxypr till my blood pregnancy test comes back or should I wait for the results had neg urine today at 2:30 at obgyns office?
I've had lower right pelvic pain all day and it feels like a burning and bruising pain. I'm two weeks late but had a negative pregnancy test. Should I go to the er or wait for the dr office tomorrow? Thanks!
ER if fever or blood: Any new, unexplained pelvic or abdominal pain should be professioally evaluated, so you're on the right track. If you have fever or chills, develop vaginal bleeding, or if the pain becomes especially severe, an ER visit would be approrpiate. Without these, it's probably safe to wait until tomorrow. Good luck! ...Read more
8 dpo 2positive pregnancy test 1 negative went to doctors they took urin test and it was negative can they be wrong when should I test?
Wait to test: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

CYA: The process of confirming pregnancy is often done with a blood test, not a urine test. She may feel that there is a good reason that the urine test is being done too early and in that scenario wants to verify with a blood test (blood tests can be more accurate earlier on in a pregnancy). ...Read more
