You have taken xanex twice in the last two weeks at 2 mg each time and just got a positive pregnancy test is it safe to continue with the pregnancy?
Yes its safe to continue with the pregnancy hun. However stop taking Xanax and consult your doctor or some pregnancy tests and ultrasound to make sure the baby is ok. Answer From the Physician's Desk Reference: Pregnancy; Xanax can be Teratogenic (may cause birth defects). Category D : Evidence of human fetal risk exists, but benefits may outweigh risks in some situations, such as life threatening situations for the mother or when safer drugs cannot be used. Benzodiazepams can potentially cause fetal harm when given to pregnant women. Xanax is assumed to be capable of causing an increased risk of congenital abnormalities when administered to a pregnant woman during the first trimester, because of experiences of other drugs of this class. The risk would be small considering the very small amount you took, but discuss it with your doctor.

After having an ectopic pregnancy during the last month a pregnancy test came just came back positive could this have been because of high hormone levels or is it pregnancy?
I read somewhere that after a miscarriage or abortion, the hcg remains in your blood for 6-8 weeks, so I'd wait before taking another one, or have your doc do a blood test. I had a ectopic pregnancy at the end of Febuary. The doctor should had let you know if your hcg were going downn or still hig…h. I was told to wait at least one period before I try to get pregnant again. If you did wait at least one period you might be pregnant. To be sure I would go get a blood test. It is correct that it may take 6 weeks for HCG to fall back after an ectopic, but you cannot tell if you are pregnant from one level, you need a second check to see if levels are falling. Alternatively, As you had an ectopic pregnancy, it is of course possible that you had an intrauterine pregnancy as well. (MORE)
Answer . In some cases it will. There may be some levels of HCG in your blood after the miscarriage which are being picked up on the PT. \n. \nIf this persists see your doctor.\nGood Luck to you..

Is it possible to test positive for pregnancy two weeks after having intercourse even though you had an abbreviated period during regular cycle time?
Answer . Two weeks after possible conception is a good time to test for pregnancy. All though, i do not know what you mean when you say abbreviated period. If it was a slight, or short period, aka "implantation bleeding", you may want to wait 2-3 weeks after it ended.
Could you still be pregnant if your last period was six weeks ago but you just started to spot brown two days ago and you took a pregnancy test that came out negative?
No you most probably are not pregnant.Get yourself checked out with your OBGYN and maybe have a blood test done to make double sure.Sometimes the lengths of your periods can vary depending on when you ovulated,so if your periods were 6 weeks ago,and you usually have them evry 4 weeks apart,then it c…ould just mean that your ovulation was delayed for this perticular cycle.(periods usually start about 14-16 days after ovulation)At any rate wait another week and take another pregnancy test.If this comes back negetive as well,make an appointment with your OBGYN at the earliest.Good Luck. answer I DISAGREE. I THINK YOU MISUNDERSTOOD THE QUESTION. HER PERIOD WAS 6 WEEKS AGO...WHICH WOULD MEAN SHE MISSED HER LAST PERIOD(SUPPOSE TO BE EVERY 4 WEEKS, RIGHT?). WHICH WOULD PUT HER AT 2 WEEKS LATE...WITH SPOTTING THEN JUST 2 DAYS AGO...YES, YOU COULD HAVE VERY WELL HAD A LATE IMPLANTATION SPOTTING, OR JUST AN EARLY PREGNANCY BLEED. THIS HAPPENS. ALOT OF THE TIME THE HCG (PREGNANCY HORMONE) WILL BE TOO LOW TO PICK UP WITH A HOME PREGNANCY TEST...BUT A BLOOD TEST WOULD PICK IT UP NO MATTER HOW LOW. . (MORE)
Answer . \nThere is a high probability that you are. I have never had a wrong one even after 4 now
Answer . It is unlikely a pregnancy test would show positive this early but some women have claimed to have a positive 10-14 days after conception. So in this case, it is possible.
Can you have a prolonged period and be pregnant had a period lasting 3 weeks that is lighter and darker than normal and just took a pregnancy test and it came back positive Is this possible?
Answer . \ni would go to the doctors if u are pregnant they need to find out why u are bleeding
How could a pregnancy test be positive when two weeks ago you had a pregnancy test and a vaginal sono done and they were negative?
Answer . A vaginal sonogram can not detect pregnancy until you are 6-7 weeks into the pregnancy. A urine pregnancy test has difficulty detecting a low amount of HCG during early pregnancy & because of this it is always best to perform a urine pregnancy test 3-4 weeks after you had unprotected se…x. Congratulations on your pregnancy & see your doctor for confirmation. (MORE)
If last prgnancy ectopic week before positive pregnancy test can abnormal period could mean pregnant athough two pregnancy test negative?
The abnormal period is the result of the Etopic pregnancy. After a miscarriage or Etopic pregnancy your menstrual cycle may be effected for the next few periods. If your next period is unusual, see your doctor about some tests to rule out a hormonal imbalance.
If you know for sure that you are pregnant, it is probably not going to be your period, although some women have experienced a "first" period then learns a couple of weeks later that they really are pregnant. It is possible that it could be implantation bleeding caused by the fertilized egg to attac…h itself to the uterine wall. Or it could be a cervical change that can cause vaginal bleeding. Vaginal bleeding can also be a symptom of ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. Another cause for bleeding during pregnancy is a miscarriage although the first two reasons for bleeding are more common, it is still a good idea to contact your doctor if you are too concerned.. On rare occasions you can encounter a false positive due to improper testing, expired pregnancy tests, rare medical conditions such as certain types of cancer, evaporation lines or a chemical pregnancy.

If you were on the pill took 5 pregnancy tests all of which came out negative over the course of seven weeks and got your period twice on time what are the chances of you being pregnant?
Answer . You are PROBABLY not pregant. However, if you are so worried about being pregnant that you take the pill and don't trust one, two, three, or even four pregnancy tests, maybe you shouldn't be having sex.. Answer . Slim to none. If you were pregnant by this time your hormone level sh…ould be high enough to read on a pregnancy test. If you still have doubts the surefire way to get an answer is to have a blood test. (MORE)
Could you be pregnant if 4 pregnancy test show positive and two weeks later a pregnancy test shows negative?
Answer yes it could just be that your hormone levels were low when you took the last test. But to have 4 positive and one negative! Your pregnant! hi you might actually be pregnant but if you tested to early you could have detected a chemical pregnancy and that means the egg and sperm fertilized bu…t it did not implant that is why they say to wait tell you have missed your pd. but good luck I'm praying for you (MORE)
If you just had a baby 2 months ago and you take a pregnancy test will that show the pregnancy hormone for the last pregnancy?
The hormone HCG decreases during your 3rd trimester and is fairly low by the time you give birth (This is part of what starts labor). By 2 months after birth, the hormone has completely left your system. So....a positive test at this time would indicate that you are pregnant again. There has been kn…own to be false positives, so get a blood test to be sure. And if this is what you want, may I say congratulations! (MORE)
When is the earliest you can get a blood test for pregnancy because i got my period 2 weeks early after going off the pill and now i just feel bloated all the time?
It doesn't make a lot of sense to pay for a blood pregnancy test if you had an early period and are complaining of bloating. Take a urine test. If it's negative, repeat in one week. If you're trying to conceive, start taking folic acid.
On rare occasions you can encounter a false positive due to improper testing, expired pregnancy tests, rare medical conditions such as certain types of cancer, evaporation lines or a chemical pregnancy.There are several things that can contribute to a negative pregnancy test even if you are pregnant…. Some medications can give you a false negative, the timing of the test can affect the results. If you did not follow directions properly; if you let the test sit for too long the results may read negative after a while. It is important to read the results within the amount of time given on the instructions of that particular pregnancy test you bought. If you did not perform the test properly (example: you drank a lot of fluids before taking the test, which can dilute your urine). Etc.To ensure the best results:* Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highest* Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results* Take the test no more than 1 day before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period, the percentage of accuracy is very low.* urinate for as long as possible on the foam-like strip* Check the results in the window frame of time suggested by the instructions of the pregnancy test.

If you are a week late and you took a pregnancy test it came out negative but there where two dots where the other line goes for a positive sign but you still got your period what does this mean?
Pregnancy tests can give faulty answers. I'd be more inclined to trust your period. If you got it a week late and it's unmistakably your period, there are other reasons why it could have been late (stress, eating habits, within 3 years of your first period, etc.). But spotting, which is like a light…er period that isn't really a period, can occur during pregnancy and make you think you've gotten your period when you haven't. I'd either take another test or see a doctor. The doctor will of course give you more reliable results. (MORE)
I think the earliest accurate response you can get from a pregnancy test is five days before your missed period with the "First Response" brand pregnancy test. Although an ultra-sound can most likely see it as early as two weeks prior to your period.
Could you be pregnant if your last period was 2 days long and it was brown spotting and then you took a pregnancy test and it was positive and then you got your period one day late?
Yes you can. Go to your doctors, Brown spotting is therefore known as ' Implantation bleeding' Where the egg implants in the womb, Which sheds tissue, Which is produced as brown discharge/Small amount of blood. & It is a possibilty you can still be having regular bleeding throughout pregnancy. … It is in somewhat cases normal. Good look x (MORE)
Then it's very probable that you are pregnant. Go see an Ob/gyn doctor to find out for sure.
Pretty sure it can because I read that the first time you take a pregnancy test and have it be negative the first time is because your still in early stages and home test aren't 100%
Your hcg levels take a little while to go back to normal which is why you are still seeing a positive. I wouldn't recommend testing for a while. Sometimes it can take a couple of months to go back to normal. Don't do that to yourself.
You had 2 positive pregnancy test one at 230 am and another at 915 am but you have taken five other pregnancy test and they all come back negativeThe last period was on Sept 27 2008 could you be pt?
my advice is go to the doctor. he/she will order a blood test, that will then let you know for sure if you are pregnant as the blood test is more accurate than home pregnancy tests
You got a positive preg result week later had excessive bleeding lasted 7 days now am suffering pregnancy symptoms nausea tiredness mood swings but neg pregnancy test could you be pregnant?
You may of had a miscarriage. I only say that because your hormone level raises when you are pregnant and it takes awhile for it to go back down that is what may have happened you sould go to the doctor if it keeps happening.
Some pregnancy tests say that they can let you know as soon as a couple days before your period is due but most say to take them a few days after a missed period. Conception usually occurs 14 days from the first day of your last period and a woman's cycle on average is 28 days so two weeks after con…ception would be the day that you would begin your period if you are a perfectly average woman which many are not. I would wait a couple days since many pregnancies can begin and end and you don't even know because it occurs before your cycle was going to begin. so for example you could get a false positive by taking a home test to early. I would wait 5 to 7 days after a missed period and then still if you get a negative and no period see your doctor for a blood test those a much more accurate. (MORE)
No, the earliest you can get a positive pregnancy test is at 6 weeks. Hope this helps!
After being almost a week late Ive taken 2 positive pregnancy tests. The first test had a faint second line and the second test had an even fainter second line Is this normal?
Ah... Ive since learnt that the "faint" line Ive been looking at is the control line, and the dark line is the test line. Perfect
Your period is 2 weeks late and you have taken 4 pregnancy test that all showed negative and the last time you had sex was 8 weeks ago can you still be pregnant?
There's always a chance you could be, If you still have doubts go have blood work taken. After reading this, however, after 4 tests, 2 weeks late, and 8 weeks since intercourse, chances are that you are not. The late period could be from a number of things ranging from high stress to changes i…n exercise and diet or birth control. Similar issue happened to me and I got very stressed.. I ended up missing my period a total of 3 months and going through a false pregnancy. I was so relieved when I finally calmed down and got my period. (MORE)
yes it can I'm 2 to 3 weeks pregnant. i first took at test around a week ago and it came out positive after i missed my period but to be on the safe side i went to the doctor today and they ran a blood test and also a urine test both came out positive.because my hormone was high enough to detect
Wife had an hcg shot 11 days ago you had an iui 10 days ago today you got positive pregnancy results even from a digital test you tested last week and all the tests were negative Are you pregnant?
The hcg shot can cause a false positive pregnancy test, so if the most recent pregnancy tests are negative, you're probably not pregnant. But definitely check with your doctor!
How far along can you be two weeks ago you had negative pregnancy test and today i got a positive test?
There is no way to know. You need to see an OB/GYN and they can give you an approximation.
yes more than likely best bet go see your doctor but with 5 posotives i wouldn't worry good luck
In all likelihood, no. If you want to be sure you can go to planned parenting or to your gynecologist.
How far into a pregnancy would you think a person is if two weeks ago their test was negative and then three tests two weeks later are positive?
My best guess would be about 4 weeks. I conceived on July 23, 2009. The first day of my last period had been July 9, 2009. I took my first test August 1, 2009, 5 days prior to my period was to begin on August 6, 2009. The test came back negative. This was with the test that you can take 5 days prior… to your 1st missed period and it is 99% accurate! However, if you read it closer it is only 99% accurate the day AFTER your first missed period and only 86% accurate at the time I took the test (5 days prior). I then took another test on August 8, 2009, 2 days AFTER my first missed period and that thing lit up like a Christmas Tree! I was 4 wks and 2 days prego. I confirmed with a doctor the following Monday, August 10, 2009. Keep in mind that I was technically only 2 weeks, 2 days prego from the date of conception. However, I just learned that the doctors count the first day of your last period as your date of conception even if you know otherwise ;-) So, I think you would be 4 weeks by the doctor standards but if you are trying to figure out the specific encounter when you became prego, count only two weeks back and not four. ie, my encounter was the 23rd NOT the 9th. I hope that helps. Please though if you are pregnant get to a doctor. If you have no insurance contact your local health department and they can put you with a doctor for little or no cost to you depending on your income. Don't wait the only thing worse than having a baby you think you may not want is having an unhealthy, sick baby that you may not want and you can always put it up for adoption. Good luck to you.

YES YOU CAN!!!!! You can actually get pregnant while you have your period - unlikely, but possible.
Okay, if you can see there is two lines, but one is very faint, that is a 50% chance that it is. It could also be from sitting too long, as tests can become positive after a while. . This is not what I understand. I was told that any line at all = positive, as the HCG that the test measures isn't …in your body unless you're pregnant. (MORE)
Is it possible to get pregnant straight after a miscarriage and after having a d and c. I had the procedure last week and have just got a pregnancy test that shows positive?
Your body is still set on pregnant and will be that for a while longer. The hormones haven't caught up yet. And yes you can get pregnant right away so protect yourself and you should wait 3-4 weeks until you have sex after a procedure like that since the risk for infections are higher. If you want t…o try again wait a few months to give it the best chance possible. (MORE)
Im 5 days late but the last two days felt like im going to get my period i had a pregnancy test and it was positive im also very tired urinating all the time im just confused with the cramps?
First I want to say you should go to a doctor or health department asap and get your pregnancy confirmed. Having said that, cramps are very normal. Your uterus goes through a lot of stretching and growing. This can be the source of your cramping. Early pregnancy feels a lot like you're just on the v…erge of having your period. Also a positive test is usually a true positive. You have to be producing hcg in order for the line to form. You don't make hcg except after you have conceived and the embryo has implanted into your uterine wall. Good luck!! (MORE)
Yes. Light bleeding is normal. When the embryo embeds itself into your uterine wall it may cause spotty or light bleeding. 90% of women have this happen in the beginning stages of pregnancy.
There are two different ways that are used in determining how many weeks along a women is actually pregnant. One way is to start counting the weeks from the first day of her last period. Another way is to start counting from the day that sexual intercourse happened that resulted in the pregnancy. Mo…st Doctors use the first way I described to measure how far along the women is pregnant. Assuming that the women is usually regular with her periods, you should be able to get a positive test result at 3 1/2 to 4 weeks along. (MORE)
Does a positive pregnancy test 2 weeks after a miscarriage mean a new pregnancy or just pregnancy hormones retained from last time?
Most likely the hormones haven't settled. You should wait 3 weeks until you have sex after a miscarriage though so if you had you could be pregnant again.
Yes, if the pregnancy hormones havenÂ´t left your body yet. It can take a few weeks.
The same thing happened to my mom. The doctors said it was normal..ish. If you're still bleeding more than 2 wks after the d and c, go to a doctor asap
Pregnancy test timing is measured from the time of a missed period. Some promise as much as 5 days before the missed period. That's about 7 days past ovulation - but if you're not using a basal thermometer to determine when you ovulated, menstruation is the best calibration point for your cycle.
A pregnancy test can test positive 2 days before you are supposed to have your period however, you will have a low amount of HCG (the hormone the test identifies) at that time and you still may be pregnant even with a negative est. It is best to wait a few days after your missed period and then test… with the first urination of the day. (MORE)
You usually can't. The 2 week checkup is very important so the doctor can see if it was successful or not. The pregnancy hormones can take 2 months to leave the body so no test will be reliable before they do that.
Absolutely not and you need to speak to your doctor before you get pregnant. Read more about Xanax in the link below.
The morning after pill or emergency contraception will not effect the outcome of a pregnancy test. If you have taken emergency contraception and have had a positive home pregnancy test you are very likely pregnant and should see a Dr.
1 week is not enough. For accurate result wait at least for 4 to 6 weeks.
Of course, it IS possible... but is it likely? If you are really unsure maybe you could be sure about this.
