Could be: This could have simply been variation in your usual menstrual cycle (an early period). More than one negative pregnancy test following the ambiguous result is convincing that you are not pregnant. A very early miscarriage is a possibility as well, (these happen very commonly in otherwise perfectly healthy, fertile women and have no implications for the future), but there is no way to be sure. ...Read more

See Your Doc: With ambiguous pregnancy tests you really should see your doc since pregnancy after a tubal ligation is a serious condition. An ectopic has to be ruled out and a serum HCG is mandatory. If negative, you can relax. If positive, your doc will review your current condition and give alternatives which include first finding your pregnancy, medical vs surgical treatment, and sterilization options. ...Read more

Im getting a faint positive pregnancy test in the evening but when I do it in the morning i get a negative. Why is this?

Im getting a faint positive pregnancy test in the evening but when I do it in the morning i get a negative. Why is this?

That can happen: That can happen if the urine in the evening is more concentrated than the urine in the morning, or if a woman is pregnant and her HCG level rose enough during the day to make the evening test result positive. Sometimes, it happens randomly, if one of the tests did not work properly. If worried about pregnancy, one can repeat the test in 1-2 weeks. If pregnant, it should be very positive by then. ...Read more

Blood test: Did you have unprotected sex? Did you miss a period? If the answer to both is yes, you may re do the home test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions carefully. Alternatively you could see your doctor for a blood test which is more sensitive. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Try again: In very early pregnancy, the lines on a pregnancy test might be faint or not there at all, even if you really are pregnant. Different brands of pregnancy tests detect different levels of the hormone HCG. Try again in a few days. Good luck! ...Read more

In March I had two faint positive pregnancy test.  A week later we got a negative. Since then I've had my period with a couple hour breaks.  Why?

Maybe : You may have had a very early miscarriage. We now know, since we have such sensitive pregnancy tests, that there are a lot more miscarriages than we knew about in the past. A lot of late periods it turns out are actually miscarriages. If you aren't having any problems, there is nothing that needs to be done at this point and there is no way to know for sure if this is what happened. Hope this help ...Read more

Why did I get two positive pregnancy test at home and blood tested negative? How is that possible?

Why did I get two positive pregnancy test at home and blood tested negative? How is that possible?

Different thresholds: It is possible to have positive urine and negative blood. The home urine tests are pretty sensitive- namely they don't miss much. They are looking for a HCG of 20 miu/ml and the blood test is looking for a level of 25 miu/ml. So if you were super early and your level was 22 miu/ml your urine would be positive and the blood negative. Repeat the blood in 1 week and then see, good chance its + ! ...Read more
