What can affect home pregnancy test results?

What can affect home pregnancy test results?

Testing too soon: Main thing is timing-it takes time (up to 2 wks) for your urinary levels of HCG to get elevated enough to be detected. Over-the-counter tests aren't always as sensitive as tests at your doctor's office, but even those usually take at least a few days after you're late to turn positive. Recheck 1-2 weeks later if you're late for your period & suspect you might be pregnant. ...Read more

I took a home ept pregnancy test and the results came out with a very faint answer. The circle was grey with an almost non existent negative line.

Do another test: The negative (control) line being almost non-existent is an indication that test was not accurate. To be read as definitely negative, the negative (control) should be clearly seen, and there be no suggestive of a positive line. You should check another pregnancy test, if you still get questionable results, have a pregnancy test performed at a healthcare facility. ...Read more

A reliable test: Home pregnancy tests are really very good. To improve their accuracy, use a first in the morning urine and if you think you might be pregnant but get a negative, wait a few days before checking again.

I had Essure done May of 2009. I am 3 wks late. I took 3 home pregnancy test but have had a negative result. Is there another explanation for this?

I had Essure done May of 2009. I am 3 wks late. I took 3 home pregnancy test but have had a negative result. Is there another explanation for this?

A few possibilities: Your 2009 hysteroscopic Essure tubal occlusion procedure is not likely to be the cause of a change in your cycles. If you believe your negative pregnancy tests, there is a very good possibility that the 3 week delay is a temporary alteration in your ovulation due to some pituitary-hypotalamic-ovarian hormonal changes that will resolve spontaneously in 2 to 3 months. If not, consult your gyn-endo. ...Read more

What's the reason for a negative positive home pregnancy test result?

What's the reason for a negative positive home pregnancy test result?

May be too early: If you are pregnant, your HCG level is not yet high enough to the threshold that the home pregnancy test was made to detect. Many times, the HCG levels are not high enough until you have missed your period (meaning you are at least 2-3 weeks pregnant). You can do a blood test or urine test at a doctor's office (which often detects much lower levels) to confirm your pregnancy. ...Read more

I had sex on monday and today is friday. When shall I do the home pregnancy test to get an accurate result?

Pregnancy Testing: Wow. Remember, conception occurs one to five days after sex. If conception happens the mother's body has no knowledge of this until the baby is big enough to be sharing blood and chemicals. That is about fourteen days after conception. Thus pregnancy testing has to occur after a period is missed. Not before. ...Read more
