Retest blood w/ doc: The pregnancy hormone, hcg, rises as the pregnancy grows, and falls if the pregnancy fails. So if you were having a miscarriage, the pregnancy hormone level would drop. There is also such a thing as a "chemical pregnancy" which is a miscarriage that happens so early, that there is never any visible gestational sac by ultrasound. Lastly, you could have a faulty home pregnancy test. Re-test by blood. ...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

Biochemical Pregnanc: If the test was positive and now lower, it is likely you had a biochemical pregnancy. This may mean that the pregnancy was not normal and would not result in you having a baby. Your body eliminated the tissue. This happens more often than we realize. Still, if it happens to you on more than 2 occasions, it suggests that there may be something else going on and you should talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Hi doctor, I just wanted to confirm that I am pregnant & that I definently seen a faint line on a clear blue pregnancy test?

No way to confirm: This on the Internet. If you saw a blue line sign that's a good sign, The simplest things for you to do is to check a test again in another day or two and see if it's also positive. Of course a blood test is a bit more accurate than a urine test. ...Read more

I have done two clear blue pregnancy test which have both come back 'pregnant 1-2' but my hcg levels are only 47. What does this mean?

Early pregnancy: This level indicates that you are VERY early in pregnancy. You need to repeat the level within the next week (or retake a urine pregnancy test). If the hCG level is increasing or the urine test remains positive, there is a good likelihood that things are working. If the level is dropping, this was an early miscarriage. If you develop pain or bleeding, see your doctor or go to the Emergency Depart ...Read more

I took. First signal pregnancy test on sat. And it came back faint positive and today I took a clear blue plus and it came back neg. Help!

Maybe not pregnant: Can retest AFTER 7 more days. A urine preg. Test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 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 thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more
