Two home pregnancy test (same brand) both were inconclusive. The lines show up very very faint. What does this mean???
Means wait, recheck: Usually, a faint positive line on a urine pregnancy test is still positive, but the concentration of HCG in the urine is not high enough to create a strongly positive line. If pregnant, the line should be strongly colored a several days later.

Consider blood test: An inconclusive urine test, can mean your HCG level is very low. Some urine tests don't turn positive until the HCG level is > 50. This level is normal in early pregnancy but it can also happen when the pregnancy isn't doing well. An ectopic pregnancy in the fallopian tube is an example of this. If its important to know right away, you can have a blood pregnancy test done. Best wishes! ...Read more
I have had 5 faint positive home pregnancy tests. I got a blood pregnancy test yesterday and results came back "inconclusive" what does that mean?
Depends: Did you have sex since your last period? Did you miss a period? If yes to both you need to repeat the blood test in a week or so. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 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. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi, I have some sort of spotting and light bleeding but had my period for this month. I took a pregnancy test and came back inconclusive. Help?
Not uncommon: Irregular bleeding are very common in women. Although, pregnancy would be the one to rule out first, other causes, which are often hard to pin down, are possible. If the bleeding is light or is no more than spotting and is not associated with any symptoms (abdominal pain, etc.) and you cannot think of any particular cause, repeat pregnancy test in 2 weeks and wait for your next period if negative. ...Read more
