ok I am a week and a half late. I have relized that I am alway hungrey when I maybe ate 1 meal a day. I am tired all the time. So I finally took a test well it was postive at least I think. On the stick the first line that tells you if you are was faint but it was no doubt there and the second was really blue, I took the test at night after I got home from work. Well it came with two so the next morning I took the second and it was negative. So should I just assume that I am not pregnant or what should I do. Has anyone else ever had this happen and it be that they were pregnant? Any advice would be great. Thanks

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

Ok so I bought one that had a line and one that said pregnant/not pregnant and they were both negative so I am going to take the best 2 out of 3 and say I am not pregnant. I don't want to be right now so it is a good answer. Thanks to everyone that gave advice. If I do not get my period by the end of the month I am going to go to my doctor and find out what is going on. Thanks to all .Today I got my period so I guess you can get a false postive.

ok i am a late on responding. But this also happened to me with my son. My dr always said there can be a false negetive never a false positive. If you are not pregnant there could be something wrong with you. But i didnt find out i was pregnant with my 5 year old until i was about 5 months, long story. Good Luck

With my first pregnancy the first 2 pregnancy tests I took were negative... then the 3rd said I was. When I had my son the first one said yes and the second said no. I ended up going to the Dr. a couple weeks later and having them give me one. Which is what I would advise you to do also.

With a test, if you get a second line with color, no matter how faint it is, you are pregnant. If you get a line with no color, it's an evap line. There is no such thing as a false positive!!!!!!

I just went through the exact same thing 4 weeks ago. Here's what I did: Call your OB/GYN tell them that you took two home pregnancy tests, one at night and one in the morning when the hormone level is the highest, and got conflicting results; ask them to call in an order for you to have a blood test taken. That way you skip the wait to see the doctor, the office visit with copay and the wait. You can most likely go today, get your blood drawn and call in about 2 hours to get your results. I went to Medina General (where my OB is) and that's exactly how it played out for me. BTW, it was negative ;)

Usually the first morning urine is the best for taking a pregnancy test. But like previously mentioned go and buy the one that reads pregnant or not pregnant. As weird as it sound you could of did the test wrong. You know that when you pee on the stick you are suppose to hold it as straight as you can and lie it on a flat surface. When going to put it on a flat surface you could of possibly tilted it and it gave you a false reading.

It's always best to assume that you are pregnant and take the proper precautions like not drinking and smoking, just in case, as the first tri-mester is super sensitive.

The best is what everyone else suggested, call the doc and get blood work.

You can have a false negative pregnancy test but a positive pregnancy test can't be wrong. The hormone that makes the line turn blue should double daily (I think), so I would just take another test and see...by now you should definately get a positive reading. However, I was told that I had a chemical pregnancy, which meant that I had the hormone, but the whole thing didn't go through completely. I hope that it works out the way you want it to.

Hi Pam,

I would not rely 100% on those tests. With my first child I took 2 and both came up negative, but sure enough, I was indeed. My Dr. said it has to do with a certain hormone and in some women it just isn't as strong as others. I think the safest thing to do is go see your Dr or planned parenthood and have a real test done.
I was also told that stress can often times make you period late and sometimes even have some of the same simptoms as being pregnant also, if you think you may be pregnant then your body will take on that role. I wouldn't rule it out that you could be pregnant just incase, but it wouldn't hurt to go ahead and set up an appt. Good luck to you!

Home pregnancy tests are hardly ever 100% accurate. I took 3 tests when I was 3 weeks late and all 3 came out to be different shades and contrasts. So, I went to a women's health clinic and had a free medical test done. They also provided a little bit of counseling and next step planning. They were very nice and very private. I'm sure there are free clinics wher eoyu can go and get a real test done so you know for sure.

You should always assume that you are pregnant so in case you are, you will be doing all the right things for the baby. When I had my son, the first test I took was very faint positive. I called my doctor and they told me to wait a few days to a week and then take another test (that one came out positive). I would ultimately call your doctor and talk to one of the nurses (if they have that available). Good Luck with everything!

I would take another test and see what that test says - but I would assume that you were pregnant so that you are more likely to take all the precautions until you know for sure.

I would also call your doctor and ask them what they think maybe you should make an appointment - it's always better to be safe than sorry (sorry about the cliche it's still early for me).

My doc said these things are very accurate and you are more likely to get a false negative than a false positive. I would take another and if it is still inconclusive go to the doctor and have them do one. I recommend a brand with a red indicator line, my first pregnancy test with my first child was very very faint and my husband didn't think it qualified as a positve so we went and found a couple of other brands and took them that night. The red one (I think it was EPT, but that was in 2001) was the easiest to read by far. You could also try the ones with a digital readout, it actually says, pregnant or not pregnant on a digital screen. Good luck!

You should use another test. Get the ClearBlue & Easy DIGITAL test. (Often times they come in a 2-pack.) I've found they are the most accurate.
Just to warn you, you CAN get false positives. They say they're rare, but I've gotten them several times, especially on the cheaper brands. In fact, I just had one, and started my period 3 days later!
If you have any questions about pregnancy tests, go to www.poas.com. (pee on a stick dot com) They have all sorts of information on tests there.
You could also go get a blood test done, by your dr's office. They are often times more accurate than peeing on a stick.

answers from Rochester on

Go buy the test that reads "pregnant" or "not pregnant", and take the test in a day or two. Or, get one of the early reading ones. Some of the tests say right on them that you have to be so many days late for the test to pick up that you are pregnant. Make sure you look at that when you buy the next pregnancy test.

You cannot get a false positive, but you can get a false negative. If it says you are pregnant, you are. If it still says you aren't, but you don't get your period within a few days, then you should go see your doctor and get the Serum Pregnancy Test (blood test). Sometimes the levels of hormones in your body aren't enough to show that you are pregnant very early on, so you could be pregnant and just not far enough along to test positive yet. Take the test right away in the morning if at all possible because your hormone levels will be the highest then (most concentrated), and put the urine in a cup and dip the stick in so you can be sure that the test is done correctly.

Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

I'm expecting our second child anyday now, and I actually had the same experience the month prior to actually conceiving. I took 5 or 6 tests and ended up starting my period 2 weeks late. In my case, I had abruptly stopped taking the pill - which can have adverse affects on your "normal" cycle. Could this be the case for you?

In terms or wondering if your pregnant even if the test says your not - taking one everyday will only drive you nuts and waste $$$. Wait one week - if still no period, take a test. If you miss more than one cycle, I'd call your OBGYN and go in for a visit. :)

In terms of assuming you are - I did - its better to be safe than sorry - if you ARE pregnant but the tests are wrong, it wouldn't be smart to go out drinking with friends! :)

Hey there. Do not assume your not pregnant. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I took a home test, it was a light line that said pos, so the next day I called the doctor and got a blood test done, and they said it was neg. But I had still not started, and I was having morning sickness, so I left the doctors and went and got a home test and it came out pos.. I was thinking ok Have I lost my mind ? So then I went to a womans clinic and took a test and they said it was inconclusive, I was thinking this is crazy... then a few days later I went to Birth right and took a test and she told me I was negative.. So I called my doctor and was like Ok, take another blood test this is crazy and they did, and it came up positive ( I swear this is all true).. If I was you, I would wait a few days and take a preg test in the early morning, when you wake.. if it comes up positive, then you are. Home tests have never been wrong for me.

Hi P., I had something similar happen with me where I strongly suspected I was pregnant but I took four home pregnancy tests over 3 weeks before it showed a positive result. I was having symptoms and no period so i kept taking the test because it takes a while for the body to start producing hcg, the pregnancy hormone that the tests look for. I hope this info helps. Oh yeah but I also went five months without a period for no discernible reason and the doctor said it was just my hormones being out of whack. good luck!-T.
