Depends: How many days after the hpt was the blood test done? If it was two weeks after the positive hpt, it is could be that an early pregnancy was lost spontaneously.

As I may have stated earlier, I would question the technique of doing the hpt. ...Read more

I had a short cycle last time and now it's been 34 days since I've had it.  I'm usually 28 days.  Negative preg tests but had unprotected sex. Preg?

Maybe: It depends in part on when you did the pregnancy tests. If you did them after your period was late and repeated one a few days later pregnancy is very unlikely. There are many things that can disrupt your cycle and pregnancy is only one but it is the most common one if you are having unprotected intercourse. See you primary care provider or Gyn to look into the others. Hope this helps. ...Read more

No pregnancy: After 6 weeks, 3 negative pregnancy tests you can be sure you are not pregnant. Review with your physician as to doubling up on your pills if you have missed taking them.
