If I have not had period in five to six weeks and took two pregnancy test that came bake with faint negative results what is the probability of pregna?
Not inconceivable: Sorry but pun was intended. While home pregnancy tests are fairly sensitive, some women will have a negative test early on during pregnancy. So if you've been engaging in unprotected sex and your test is negative 3d after being late, then repeat test once you're a week or two late. By 2 wks late or 6wks after last menstrual period, home pregnancy test should be positive if you're pregnant. ...Read more
What is the probability of a home pregnancy test being a false negative when my period is 3 days late?
Check later, not now: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after 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

I read online that a small percentage (10-15%) of women can get a positive pregnancy test 1-2 days past ovulation. Possible? Impossible?
Pregnancy: Impossible. To test positive the egg has to be impregnated. It then has to travel through the fallopian tubes into the uterus. It then has to land on the wall of the uterus and begin to grow. It then has to grow to a certain size to be creating and leaking HCG hormone so that the mother's blood supply can pick it up and thus then be testable. The body does not know a pregnancy has occurred. ...Read more
