My home pregnancy test says I am pregnant. What should I do first?

Relax! Fortunately, pregnancy takes care of itself for the most part. If it was a planned pregnancy, make an appointment with an obstetrics provider and go see them. If it was unplanned, you can continue the pregnancy and have a baby, continue and seek adoptive parents, or have an abortion.

Is there a way a home pregnancy test can say im 2 weeks pregnant? I thought it was accurate at 3 week's I used first response also

Positive or negative. Home pregnancy test is just positive or negative, it does not tell about the duration of pregnancy. It is better to wait 4-5 day after a missed period to do the test, use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the kit carefully. Read more...

My home pregnancy test says I am not pregnant. Could it be wrong?

Yes, sort of. If you're pregnant and it's neg, it's probably more likely that your urinary levels of HCG aren't yet elevated enough to be detected. The over-the-counter tests aren't always as sensitive as tests at your doctor's office. Best to recheck 1-2 wks later if you're late for your period & suspect you might be pregnant. Also if you're levels get too high, they can cause a false negative on the test. Read more...

I had sex with my ex on Sept 9th. Me and my current boyfriend had sex Sept 12th. A home pregnancy test says I'm pregnant. I'm not sure who's the dad?

Too close to call. Unfortunately intercourse was only 3 days apart. This is within the margin of error. You are not going to be able to use a conception calendar to narrow down paternity with only a 3 day difference. DNA testing after delivery will be needed. Read more...

If a at home pregnancy test says negative will the blood test say it too?

Likely. Today's home preg tests can pick up very low levels of the preg hormone hcg. I consider those results reliable. If a result is questionable, repeating the test in a few days will be helpful. If there is some concern about the viability of a pregnancy then serial quantitative blood HCG levels would be helpful for diagnosis. Read more...

Home pregnancy test says if periods are irregular, wait 19 days after I think I got pregnant. Does that mean 19 days after sex or after fertilization?

Difficult to say. I believe they're talking about 19 days after suspected ovulation. When menstrual cycles are irregular it is difficult to know when ovulation occurs. Sperm can potentially live 24 to 72 hours after intercourse and if ovulation occurs anytime within that, then fertilization and conception may possibly occur. Read more...

My home pregnancy test says on the box can detect pregnancy 5 days before missed period, can it really predict pregnany this early?

Trust the test. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Read more...

Now a days I am trying to conceive baby. This month I miss my period and home pregnancy test says -ve, white color liqd comes from virgina. What to do?

Have more sex! Best way to get pregnant is to have sex w/o protection. Most fun way, too! since you're trying to conceive, start taking prenatal vitamins now. Neural tube forms in 1st 4wks before you even realize you're pregnant so you want to have plenty of folic in you to minimize risk for spina bifida etc. Also consider preconception counseling to discuss age & genetic issues. Then go have more fun! Read more...
