Can you get positives on cheap pregnancy test, and then get negative on first response, what does it mean if you do?

Can you get positives on cheap pregnancy test, and then get negative on first response, what does it mean if you do?

Home tests accurate: In the United States home urine tests are all quite accurate. False positives are extremely rare and due to specific medical conditions. But the test needs to be read at the 3 minute mark. If the test is left sitting and read later, it will be falsely positive. If the tests were read at the correct time, it may mean that there was a very early miscarriage of sorts. ...Read more

You: You may be dealing with an abscess (infection under the skin). A medical doctor will need to examine you and decide if this is the case. If so, then you will need to be treated with antibiotics. As far as working out is concerned. Often times if you have a small scratch or abrasion in the skin or umbilicus (belly button) as in your case, and you work out there is sweat and bacteria on the skin, this bacteria can get into these small cuts or abrasions (often times microscopic) and cause infection.
Please seek a medical evaluation.
Best of luck. ...Read more

I got a? on a first response pregnancy test. Does that mean there is still hcg present but not enough for a positive result?

I got a? on a first response pregnancy test. Does that mean there is still hcg present but not enough for a positive result?

Mommy, AreWeThereYet?: Maybe it means that you are pregnant and the baby has a question for you. Or, according to their instructions, it means there was an error in the test and that they want you to do the test again. Tests of various kinds often have to be repeated for that reason, a glitch in the mechanics of the test, or a faulty sample. But I kinda like the first idea. Think about what questions your baby might ask you ...Read more

Can I receive a quick response to my first question asap? I'm 19 years old and I've been having pressure in my left eye. Am I at risk of having glaucoma

Took first response HPT today. One line is dark and the other is a bit faint. I have a missed period of 7 days. Does this mean I'm pregnant.

Repeat it: If you are uncertain regarding the results of a urine pregnancy test it is best to repeat it the following day.

If you are still unable to interpret the result then schedule a visit with your doctor for confirmation. ...Read more

If I keep asking question about seizures which I haven't had any after my first 17 yearago does that mean I have OCD so I can keeo seeing the answers?

Good self-awareness!: One who asks the same or similar questions over and over and over again, thus getting similar answers over and over again, is indeed showing an OCD trait. That one is aware of it is good. Now, what does one do about it? A primary care doctor and/or a psychiatrist has several medication options that can help. Psychiatrists have "talk therapy" and other techniques that also help. ...Read more

I have a questions. I had a surgical abortion a month ago. Yesterday I took a digital and first responce and both said positive could I be preg?

Possible Pregnancy: Ok first of ask it is not our job as doctors to judge so go see your doctor. Secondly, it is very doubtful you are pregnant so soon after an abortion. Your HCG levels will still be elevated from that pregnancy and you will not have ovulated as of yet. The pregnancy test is positive from the aborted pregnancy. Now a little advice, get on some birth control now! No more accidents, till you are ready ...Read more

Hey! I have one more question for you. I have been checking my cervix and at first I could not feel anything. Now it feels like it is lower and it feels like the tip of a nose. What does that mean?

Hey! I have one more question for you. I have been checking my cervix and at first I could not feel anything. Now it feels like it is lower and it feels like the tip of a nose. What does that mean?

Why checking cervix?: First question is why are you checking your cervix? It is unlikely to have moved; you probably have become more adept at locating it. The fact that it feels like the tip of a nose is not abnormal, especially if you are touching the superior or inferior cervical lip.
Take care! ...Read more

Not sure the?: I presume you are wondering if you still have contraceptive effect from missing that one pill. In general if you miss ONE pill in that first week and take the rest of the pack as directed you still are protected even if sexually active. If you miss TWO pills in a row I would not take the chance and would use back up contraception for the rest of the pill pack. Better safe than sorry! ...Read more
