My lmp was march 24 I got a positive pregnancy test a week after I missed my next period. Why is my EDD is January 13? When it should be in December

EDD is Dec. 28 if...: If cycles are 28 days long, the EDD should be December 28 for a Last Menstrual Period that started March 24. If there was a "dating ultrasound" scan done between 8 and 11 weeks of pregnancy, that scan should be more accurate than counting from an LMP. When counting from an LMP, the EDD depends on the cycle length... meaning that a really long cycle length could push the EDD out to January 13. ...Read more

Re do hpt: From what you described you are unlikely to be pregnant. You may wish to see your doctor for a blood test for HCG which is more sensitive and specific. You may choose to repeat the home 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.

One should not do the tests on the same day, but 5-7 days apart, so that if a pregnancy has gone away, the later tests will be negative. Rare reasons include: http://www. Pregnancylab.
