No missed period was on birth control pills went to the doctor had a positive pregnancy test. Why positive pregnancy test??

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, birth control is not 100 effective, especially if you miss some pills. Blood test can be positive early. A remote explanation is the presence of an HCG producing tumor. It would be prudent to discuss the matter with your doctor. ...Read more

VERY VERY LOW: Home pregnancy tests are highly accurate, couple with your missing periods x2, the chance of pregnancy is greater than 99% or false positive is less than 1%--so, take your pick. I would bet a nickle that you are pregnant and suggest you consult doc as soon as possible to start prenatal care, or if you not wanting to keep the pregnancy (you don't sound too excited). Good luck. ...Read more

It's been 31 days in my cycle. I never ever miss a period. But I took a pregnancy test about two days ago, it came out negative.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors 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

I'm on the pill and taking garlic. My flow is light this month. Should I take a pregnancy test or should I wait until I miss a period?

Wait: BCP's if taken according to the directions are extraordinarily effective at what they claim to do (over 99 %). Of course if you skip doses or don't follow the directions exactly they don't work as well. The best pregnancy tests will pick up a pregnancy five days after the fertilized egg implants in the wall of the uterus. As always tests can be wrong. ...Read more
