Preg test positive but blood test negative missed period?

Preg test positive but blood test negative missed period?

Timing: It is possible that the urine pregnancy test detected HCG that was in the urine even as a pregnancy was failing (impending miscarriage) but by the time a blood test was done, the miscarriage had already occurred and the levels of the HCG pregnancy hormone were cleared.

Can a home pregnancy test be positive 3 days after conception?

Can a home pregnancy test be positive 3 days after conception?

No: That would be much too soon, if we define conception as the moment the sperm meets the egg, leading to successful implantation of the embryo in the uterus. The home pregnancy test detects HCG in the urine, which means the HCG is coming from the location of the implanted embryo in the uterus. This means test is positive some time after implantation. ...Read more

Negative pregnancy test 4 weeks after sex. Accurate?

Negative pregnancy test 4 weeks after sex. Accurate?

Yes: A urine pregnancy test done correctly 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, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Does pregnancy test kit show positive result even after 2 mth of miscarriage?

Does pregnancy test kit show positive result even after 2 mth of miscarriage?

Very unlikely: A positive pregnancy test 2 months after a miscarriage is more likely to be from a new pregnancy. However it is possible to be positive 2 months after a miscarriage if the miscarriage didn't pass all the pregnancy tissue, and that tissue is still making pregnancy hormone. In this situation i order several blood pregnancy tests in a row to see if the number is rising and get an ultrasound. ...Read more
