Am I Pregnant?????
we are trying to concieve and i took a pregnancy test 4 days after ovulation. i know this is way early but i get impatient! :) the test i took came out positive, but it was a very light line. now i know you cant really tell that early but i am just wondering if anyone has had this happen before. i am supposed to be able to tell if i am pregnant 10 days from now but i dont want to wait that long! maybe i have to, any advise???? is a + result that early reliable?

False negatives happen but the docs have told me false positives dont happen. If their was a line no matter how light or dark you are pregnant. Congrats!!!! The HCG hormone is only in the body if you are pregnant. Congrats again and good luck!!!

The same thing happened to me and I was very unsure myself. The line was so faint but there was definately a positive sign. I would say you are, but go to the doctor or test yourself again in a few days and it should read more clearly.

Yeah my pregnancy test had the faintest line .. I ended up taking another one and it was exactly the same and I sure was pregnant! I don't think there is such a thing of a false positive, but I could be wrong !!!! Good luck !

Yes, it might be a little bit early but a positive sign is usually not a mistake.
I took a test early once (thinking i wasn't pregnant but making sure) and it was a very faint positive line. I called the company who made the test and they assured me that it was right. The slightest pregnancy hormone will be detected!
Just check with your obgyn (if that's who you use).

I got pregnant 2 years ago and the line was so light I took 4 more! I even bought the more expensive ones to be sure. If it is light it can still be positive. Take a test everyday if you want, but the out come probably won't change:) Good luck!

I was at an appointment to talk about infertility since my husband and I had been trying so long without luck. While there they gave me a routine pregnancy test. He came back into the room and told me that he was unsure of the results, so he had a blood test done and sure enough I was pregnant. They said my HCG hormone levels were low that's why they couldn't really tell. I had just gotten pregnant. I too, have never heared of a false postive. Congrats.
