Took a first response test it was negative I was 3 days late then had bleeding that lasted 1 day and not even a 24hours should I retest?

Wait a week.: Wait a week before you repeat the test. Be sure that you follow the instructions exactly and that the test kit has not expired. If it is still negative and you have another abnormal period, see a doc. Of course if it is positive, arrange for ongoing care. ...Read more

After getting an answer here I took a test like directed and it was negative. I am about 5 days late. R hpt accurate? It was first response test.

Yes: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate: they will usually detect pregnancy within 6 days. I would recommend a second test in about a week, and if still negative, then you have skipped a period, and your next one is likely to be a little stronger and longer than usual. ...Read more

Need more info: If you did not have sex since your last period, you are not pregnant. You may repeat the pregnancy test in a week and if it is still positive, see your doctor for a blood test for HCG and/or ultrasound examination.
By the way, HCG injections are worthless and will not do you any good.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Had a very faint line on more than one First response test could they be evaporation lines even if they are very faint?

Had a very faint line on more than one First response test could they be evaporation lines even if they are very faint?

Possible not likely: It depends on where the faint line is on your pregnancy test but if it is in the same position on more than one it probably means an early pregnancy and should be more pronounced on a pregnancy test done 3-5 days later. If it isn't this may not be a normally developing pregnancy and you could end up with an early miscarriage or a tubal pregnancy and you need to see your doctor. ...Read more

Is it possible for first response test to be wrong if period are irregular but took the test on the 40th day of cycle if so when do I take another?

Took 3 test one dollar store one faint faint line got 2 first response test first one faint but visible second one darker what do u think pregnant or no?

Need details, but...: Pregnancy tests are made by various companies, and different tests have different instructions. One must read the instructions and do the test correctly. There is a line that must show up (called the control) on each test. There is either a line or cross that shows up in addition to the control line, if the test is positive. Positive is a cross on some, a line on others, even if lines are faint. ...Read more

Many things: Many things can cause a delay in your period. Pregnancy is of course always the first possibility but stress, changes in diet, exercise, weight, or schedule, medications, and illnesses such as thyroid disease, insulin resistance or diabetes, and PCOS are also possibilities. See your doctor for a full history and exam. These will determine which tests are indicated to find the cause. Hope this helps ...Read more

Doctors on this site said in my case it's "very very unlikely" that I would be pregnant. Took first response test day of expected period. Neg. True?

You tell us: If your pregnancy tests are repeatedly negative then you are not pregnant. A pregnancy test can detect a bhcg of about 20 which means they are very sensitive and work really well. Trust the test. Repeat in a few days if you don't believe the result. If negative then you are not pregnant. Since you are 19 I then suggest you see a doctor to discuss birth control and avoid these scares. ...Read more

Likely no: If you had your period, you likely are not pregnant. The fact that you had yoru period and you had a negative pregnancy test is likely indication that you can't be pregnant. Having said that, some women can get pregnant even while still on their period, so be sure if you don't want to be pregnant to use at least one (or two) forms of birth control. ...Read more

Misinformed?: First a fetus implanting on the wall of the uterus is the size of a speck of dust or smaller. It has no physical or chemical connection to the mother or the mother's blood supply. It would be absolutely physically impossible for a positive pregnancy test in the time frame you describe with implantation. Impossible.

It: It is possible. If what seemed like an unusually short period was actually spotting (possibly related to implantation). Pregnancy symptoms can start as soon as a period is missed. They can can include swollen and tender breasts, lack of period, nausea, vomiting, headache, strange food cravings, widening abdominal girth, increased urinary frequency, insomnia, passing gas, feeling tired, mild cramping, and moodness. If your HCG was too low to trigger the pregnancy test, it could have given you a negative result. You could repeat a pregnancy now. ...Read more

Test is negative: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors 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

Sore nipples, heavy breasts, fatique, elevated temp, green stool, very faint positive first response test but negative $1 dollar store test. Opinion??

May retest in 1 week: 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. ...Read more

How to get pregnant: If your period is 'far away' why would you be worried that you are pregnant. If you had sex early in your cycle when you were not fertile then you did not get pregnant. It is thought that any testing before you have missed a period is a waste of money because it would be too soon to test. ...Read more
