Neither one: Levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) would not cause a false positive pregnancy test, nor would it mask a pregnancy (i.e., you are pregnant, but because of levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) the pregnancy test comes back negative). ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own.

On levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel). 15/30 if 1 pill missed on 4th day of that pack, but made up. Should a pregnancy test be taken even if "period" came at right time?

Pregnant on OCP: It is possible that you may be pregnant if you missed a couple of days of the birth control pills, especially with the lower dose pills. Missing only a single pill and making it up promptly makes it less likely. Still, checking a pregnancy test won't do much harm and you can see your doctor if you are pregnant. ...Read more

Had sex on the last day of my period, friday. How long should I wait to take a pregnancy test? I am on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) but I also started bactrim tuesday.

Had sex on the last day of my period, friday. How long should I wait to take a pregnancy test? I am on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) but I also started bactrim tuesday.

Not pregnant: First, the chance you could get pregnant from having sex on the last day of your period is vanishingly small. Second, you are protected by yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Some doctors recommend a second method of protection while on Bactrim because some antibiotics induce cyp3a4, a liver enzyme that breaks down yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). However, neither sulfamethoxazole nor trimethoprim--the two antibiotics in bactrim--are enzyme inducers. ...Read more

I'm on yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). I missed my period the last 2 months. I've had black discharge. I took 2 home pregnancy test & both were negative. What should I do?

I'm on yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). I missed my period the last 2 months. I've had black discharge. I took 2 home pregnancy test & both were negative. What should I do?

Be patient.: It sounds like the Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is shortening your period so much that you aren't getting a full period. Then your bleeding becomes irregular and can cause spotting (or the black discharge you are experiencing). Old blood is usual very dark brown or black. If this continues then see your doctor, but I would give it one more month and it will probably go away. Good job taking the pregnancy test! :-). ...Read more

Unlikely: It is not uncommon for your period to fluctuate within a few days. If you have been consistent with your birth control pill then the likelihood of pregnancy is very low. However if your period does not come within a week then get a pregnancy test and consider a better form of birth control. ...Read more

Wait: Sometimes your periods can be delayed due to fluctuations in hormones. If you don't have a period in a week, repeat the preg test then. You may have a delay or missed period without being pregnant.
It is not common but does happen

Can u get positive pregnancy test at 12 dpo?

May be: 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. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Can you have a false positive pregnancy test?

Can you have a false positive pregnancy test?

Yes: Certain tumors produce HCG and these will produce a false-positive pregnancy test even in a man. A chemical pregnancy (in which the conception is lost very early) might be considered a false-positive. I trust the specimen is not contaminated. Good luck; I hope that whatever comes next is what you want. ...Read more
