What to do if I have six positive pregnancy tests and a negative blood test, could I be pregnant, or not?

What to do if I have six positive pregnancy tests and a negative blood test, could I be pregnant, or not?

Possible: Six positive tests are pretty darn convincing but the negative blood test could trump the urine tests. I would wait 10 days and repeat the blood test. Ask for both a qualitative result as well as a quantitative beta HCG ...Read more

Period is 7 days late with negative blood test, could i be pregnant? I also have early pregnancy symptoms

Not likely: If you're late for your period. But your pregnancy test is negative then you're likely not pregnant. If you're worried repeat the test in 5 to 7 days. There could be other reasons that your period is delayed. If you don't want to be pregnant make sure you're using a reliable form of birth control. Early pregnancy symptoms are similar to premenstrual symptoms. ...Read more

Period 14 days late negative blood test but, my body feels pregnant?

Period 14 days late negative blood test but, my body feels pregnant?

Talking to Doctors: That means you do not understand or have mis-defined what you feel to only represent pregnancy. You have not included even one symptom in your history or question so there is nothing more to comment on. When you speak to doctors you must be prepared to ask about specific things rather than using ambiguous terms such as "I feel pregnant'. ...Read more

Why did I have a positive hpt but negative blood test? Could I still be pregnant? 8 days late and many symptoms. Could it be a cyst?

Pregnacy test: Urine pregnancy test is 97% accurate when the instruction to perform it is followed properly, but there instances where a test is positive but the person is not pregnant( false positive), in chemical pregnancy ( beta HCG is detected but early miscarrage occured), missed reaction time ( you let the test sit too long before reading the result), chemical interference (have taken meds that have hcg). ...Read more

I have been spotting for 1 day now going on 2(13days late w/ 2 positive at home pregnancy tests and a negative blood test. Could I still be pregnant?

I have been spotting for 1 day now going on 2(13days late w/ 2 positive at home pregnancy tests and a negative blood test. Could I still be pregnant?

Unclear if ever were: Urine pregnancy tests are very sensitive, but serum (blood) bHCG tests are even more sensitive, and are not prone to human error interpreting results like home urine pregnancy tests are. If your urine pregnancy tests were positive, but serum bHCGs test was negative on same day, then you were probably never pregnant. It really depends on timeline you did these tests. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex on 21 Feb,got last period on 5 Feb. pregnancy test kits as tested on 18 March negative. Blood test beta HCG <1.20mIU. Pregnant?

Had unprotected sex on 21 Feb,got last period on 5 Feb. pregnancy test kits as tested on 18 March  negative. Blood test beta HCG <1.20mIU. Pregnant?

No: Based on the information you provided, you are not pregnant. It would be prudent to repeat the home pregnancy test in a week, unless you get a period by then. 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. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Cyst: With negative test, sounds like pregnancy is unlikely. A common cause is anovulation and ovarian cyst. This is usually due to a temporary hormonal glitch and will usually fix itself. If not, see a gyn specialist for what is usually a sole testing and treatment. ...Read more

What if u do a blood test and its negative but u feelin pregnant?

Wait and repeat it: Best advice is to wait 1-4 weeks and then repeat it. If it is still negative you might consider seeing a doctor. There are different kinds of pregancy tests, and doctors can do qualitative tests that give a 'level' of the pregnancy hormone and not just a positive or negative result. Many women do skip periods at times. Some women have early miscarriages before they really know their pregnant. ...Read more
