Re do test: Since the history of periods and positive pregnancy test do not comport, it would be prudent to repeat the test. Make sure that the urine is not contaminated with blood and follow the instructions for the test carefully, including the time frame within which the test should be read.

Is a first response early result pregnancy test more accurate then a dr. S office urine test? My home pregnancy test was pos but doc office was neg!

Not likely.: No test is 100% accurate, unfortunately. I'd suggest waiting a week, repeating the home test, and if it's still positive, going back to your doctor's. If the doctor's office urine test is still negative, your doctor can order a blood test for pregnancy, which is more accurate. ...Read more

Sex december 31 and january 4 and january 16th I got a pos. Pregnancy test january 21 on which of these days did I possibly conceive? Dd sept 28th.
