Yss, If done: Correctly and at the right time. Urine tests start turning positive about 7-10 days after a missed period. Blood test is more sensitive and may start turning positive about 2-3 days after a missed period.

Pregnancy (Definition)

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.

I took 3 morning after pills within a month. I do not have my period and I've used 10 home pregnancy test. Results are negative. What's happening?

Hormonal imbalance: Morning after pills have a larger dose of birth control hormones and could have upset your rhythm. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time and practice safe sex. See this site for info.

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.

How early can I take a home pregnancy test and get correct results?

How early can I take a home pregnancy test and get correct results?

Wait 3 wk after sex: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) 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.

Is it possible I am pregnant if I get a negative result on a home pregnancy test?

Yes: If you are very early, generally less than 5 weeks, a home pregnancy test may not be positive. Waiting a few days and rechecking it, as long as you aren't experiencing pain or abnormal bleeding, is usually ok. Otherwise, you can go to your doctor to get a blood sample drawn to check a serum pregnancy test which is very accurate.

If you do a home pregnancy test after one Month of sex, can you get a false result?

If you do a home pregnancy test after one Month of sex, can you get a false result?

Possible: Every test has an incidence of false positive (says you are pregnant but you are not) and false negative (says you are not pregnant but you actually are). So yes it is possible, the false positive rate is quite low on most home pregnancy tests, but the false negative rate is not quite so low.

How many times can I do home pregnancy test? Done four times already with negative results but still in doubt. Is it reliable?

How many times can I do home pregnancy test? Done four times already with negative results but still in doubt. Is it reliable?

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. At 48 years old, however, missing a period is more likely about nearing menopause than about pregnancy.
