Pregnancy (Definition)

How soon can you get a positive pregnancy test after conception?

How soon can you get a positive pregnancy test after conception?

10 - 14days: With sensitive quantitative blood tests, the test can start to be positive at 10 days and always by 14days after conception. The problem is knowing when conception is in most cases. Urine tests start showing positive at 13-14days and most would be positive at 18days. ...Read more

If conception date was 2/28/2015 how far along would I be now? I didn't miss my period on 3/12/2015, but took a positive pregnancy test this morning

If conception date was 2/28/2015 how far along would I be now? I didn't miss my period on 3/12/2015, but took a positive pregnancy test this morning

Last period?: Pregnancies are not dated from when you think you conceived but from the day the last normal menstrual period started. Assuming you did conceive on Feb. 28th you'd be close to 4 weeks 5 days today (3/19/15.) Good wishes. ...Read more

My girlfriend took a pregnancy test three days after conception and it says positive with a very faint line should we trust it that early? No kid please

My girlfriend took a pregnancy test three days after conception and it says positive with a very faint line should we trust it that early? No kid please

Maybe, maybe not: These tests can be misinterpreted, false positive or false negative. They are more likely to be false negative early on then false positive, but interpreting what is thought to be a faint color change is not definitive either. I would repeat the test with a standard brand hpt, not the dollar store variety, & if concerns remain have the blood test run. ...Read more

Recently had positive pregnancy test was bleeding for three days 1st day heavy tested again was negative but could I still be pregnant?

Recently had positive pregnancy test was bleeding for three days 1st day heavy tested again was negative but could I still be pregnant?

Unlikely: If what you're saying is that you had a positive pregnancy test.... and then after that test you had 3 days of bleeding and then you took another test and it's negative, then likely you aren't pregnant anymore. You can take a confirmatory test (I'd wait 3-5 days), and make sure, but sounds like you miscarried. See a physician if you're worried or bleeding continues for > 7 days. ...Read more

I had one positive pregnancy test and three negative after. Which do I believe?

I had one positive pregnancy test and three negative after. Which do I believe?

The negative: It is common to have an initial "chemical pregnancy" where the sperm and egg meet and begin the implantation process only to quickly fail. The result is an initial elevation in beta human chorionic gonadotropin, or hcg, followed by a "failure" of the implantation process to complete resulting in the negative tests. If these were subsequent to the positive test it is likely you are not pregnant. ...Read more

Can a home pregnancy test be positive 3 days after conception?

Can a home pregnancy test be positive 3 days after conception?

No: That would be much too soon, if we define conception as the moment the sperm meets the egg, leading to successful implantation of the embryo in the uterus. The home pregnancy test detects HCG in the urine, which means the HCG is coming from the location of the implanted embryo in the uterus. This means test is positive some time after implantation. ...Read more

Conception was about 3 days ago and my girlfriends showing signs of being pregnant also she took a pregnancy test and it was positive is it too soon?

Conception was about 3 days ago and my girlfriends showing signs of being pregnant also she took a pregnancy test and it was positive is it too soon?

Earlier than that: If a pregnancy test is positive it would be w-a-y to soon 3 days after conception: she got pregnant earlier than 3 days ago, at least 11-12 days before, theoretically maybe longer than that. When was her last normal period? Good wishes. ...Read more

I took a pregnancy test 5 days after conception and it came back positive. MY period started the day after conception.

I took a pregnancy test 5 days after conception and it came back positive. MY period started the day after conception.

Confusing yes: If that was a home pregnancy test one of three things are possible. First the test was false pos (least likely). Second, you have been pregnant since the prior cycle and third, your thought about conception time is wrong. Even with a twin pregnancy, the first time a test could be positive would be 11-13 days after conception. The bleeding is often confusing but likely not a regular period. ...Read more

Had a d&c 7 weeks ago, got a negative pregnancy test 11 days after, got 1st period lasting 4 days 12 days ago, but am now getting 5 positive tests clear blue says 2-3 weeks since conception? Confused

Had a d&c 7 weeks ago, got a negative pregnancy test 11 days after, got 1st period lasting 4 days 12 days ago, but am now getting 5 positive tests clear blue says 2-3 weeks since conception? Confused

See your Doc: One of two possibilities. One is you are pregnant again, second is that the D&C did not completely remove all the tissue in the uterus that gives you a positive pregnancy test.

See you ob/gyn asap. ...Read more

Done a clear blue pregnancy test 5days ago said positive with 2-3 weeks conception date. Done another this morning first sample now says1-2 weeks? Hcg

Done a clear blue pregnancy test 5days ago said positive with 2-3 weeks conception date. Done another this morning first sample now says1-2 weeks? Hcg

Biochemical Pregnanc: If the test was positive and now lower, it is likely you had a biochemical pregnancy. This may mean that the pregnancy was not normal and would not result in you having a baby. Your body eliminated the tissue. This happens more often than we realize. Still, if it happens to you on more than 2 occasions, it suggests that there may be something else going on and you should talk to your doctor. ...Read more
