Alternatively, it could have just been a false (+) urine pregnancy test. ...Read more

Are home pregnancy test realiable?

Very reliable: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or 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

What did your doctor: What did the physician caring for you tell you? It is hard here to be asked a question as if you are testing us to know if your physician told you the truth.

Lab error: Presuming the first blood pregnancy test was close to the second, one of them had to be a lab error, probably the first one that was negative. If there is any question about the health of the pregnancy, your doctor can follow the bhcg level to see if it is rising appropriately and obtain an ultrasound when the level is high enough.For more info www.Askyourgynecologist.Org. ...Read more

Blood pregnancy test: Is useful here if urine one is conflicting/indeterminate and this is available to you through your doctor.

If negative test worth doctor assessment to look for other causes for your symptoms. All the best. ...Read more

Pregnancy test positive..week 4 n 3days! but i cant visit doc until my hubby comes home..n his coming on 9th week of my pregnancy..is it ok?

Yes, its ok: Waiting until your 9th week to see your doc will most likely not hurt you or your baby. It would be best to start taking pre-natal vitamins that contain folic acid even before you see your doc. We often like to see you sooner to arrange an early ultrasound and review your history but it doesn't frequently change the pregnancy outcome. Best wishes! ...Read more

Is a first response early result pregnancy test more accurate then a dr.S office urine test? My home pregnancy test was pos but doc office was neg!

Not likely.: No test is 100% accurate, unfortunately. I'd suggest waiting a week, repeating the home test, and if it's still positive, going back to your doctor's. If the doctor's office urine test is still negative, your doctor can order a blood test for pregnancy, which is more accurate. ...Read more

My period is now 8 days late, I have taken a home pregnancy test and it was negative. I than took one at the doctors and that was also negative. my breast were really sore about two weeks ago, and they still hurt but not as much. Could I be pregnant?

My period is now 8 days late, I have taken a home pregnancy test and it was negative. I than took one at the doctors and that was also negative. my breast were really sore about two weeks ago, and they still hurt but not as much. Could I be pregnant?

Tests are accurate : If you have taken pregnancy tests at home and they are negative then you can rest assured that you are not pregnant. You will need to see your doctor to discuss irregular periods. If the symptoms you are experiencing were caused by pregnancy than that implies that your hormone level would be high enough for detection ...Read more

I took a home pregnancy test it was negative i also went to the doctor and it was negative. But im still having sypmptoms?

Depends on timing: It is possible to be pregnant and still have the test be negative if you are too close to when you would have expected your period. If your period was just due, i recommend waiting a few days or even a week and retesting. Or you can ask your doctor do do the blood test which can be positive a bit sooner, but it may be worth just waiting a bit to try the urine again. ...Read more
