Technique: The test strip must be read within the prescribed time frame. What you described happens if you let the test strip sit around for too long before reading. The result is not reliable.

I took a pregnancy test the negative line was clearer then the positive line. Am i pregnant?

Repeat in one week.: I don't know how long after intercourse you did this test, but you might have done it too early. This tests HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin, which is made if your egg gets fertilized. This goes up each day after fertilization, so you are more likely to get a positive result the longer you wait. If you test too early, you could get a false negative result, so wait, and see dr. If no change. ...Read more

Negative pregnancy test at 8-9 days past ovulation. I used the first response early result test this afternoon. Can I still be pregnant?

Negative pregnancy test at 8-9 days past ovulation. I used the first response early result test this afternoon. Can I still be pregnant?

Could 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

Pregnancy test pos?: Usually, home pregnancy tests are meant to be evaluated several minutes after testing. Also, usually lines showing +be results are blue or pink. A white line is usually a careful inspection of where the test would have shown a blue or pink line -- if it was +ve. However, not knowing which test you used, makes it tough to be sure. The best thing to do is see your ob for a reliable, clear test :) ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

What are the chances of home pregnancy test giving an accurate positive result 5 days before missed period?

What are the chances of home pregnancy test giving an accurate positive result 5 days before missed period?

Unlikely: Most home pregnancy tests (hpts) claim to be 99% accurate on the first day of the missed period. However, research suggests that most hpts do not always detect the very low levels of pregnancy hormones this early. Most hpts can accurately detect pregnancy 1 week after a missed period. ...Read more
