The best thing to do is see your ob for a reliable, clear test :) ...Read more

19 days passed after iui. Very faint line in pregnancy test done today. Can I still be pregnant or progestron delay?

Possible pregnancy: It's possible that you are early pregnant but you should have more testing to confirm.

It would be absolutely impossible for any pregnancy test to pick up a pregnancy until there is a physical connection to the mother. That is about 14 days after conception. ...Read more
