Some women who have an ectopic pregnancy have a negative pregnancy test. The hCG which gives a positive test result, is released from the embryo implanting in the uterus.

Signs of pregnancy after tubal ligation are a positive pregnancy test. If your test is negative, you're not pregnant.

If the pregnancy test was negative, it means that you are not pregnant.

Yes, a tubal pregnancy will still produce HCG and will still be detected by a pregnancy test.

You could have had a false negative pregnancy test or If the egg is not attached to the uterus It could mean the fetus will not survive so that's why it would have came up negative or its a tubal pregnancy which means the fetus is forming in the ovarian tubes which could cause miscarrage or VERY complicated pregnancy

Although tubal "banding" is a popular form of sterilization, it is not a guarantee. If a person is having irregular periods, has had a tubal banding and has a negative pregnancy test they probably aren't pregnant, BUT a too early pregnancy test, spotting as opposed to a period or an ineffective banding on one or both tubes can result in a vialble pregnancy.

Most definitely, yes, you can have a false pregnancy test with tubal pregnancy. Hormones only know an egg implanted. Hormones do not know where the egg implanted.

you not going to have a baby

Yes, you could be pregnant due to many tubal litigation are now ending up in a pregnancy. I would recommend seeing your doctor.

negative= not pregnant positive= pregnant be sure to read the instructions on the pregnancy test package

On a pregnancy test where you get a positive or a negative sign, the positive (plus sign) indicates pregnancy, while the negative indicates non-pregnant.

go to your doctor and get a blood test if you want to make sure.

No, no matter where the baby is, you are still carrying the pregnancy hormone. You can however, have a false negative from many factors. Also, if you take the test too soon, you may also get a false positive. If you are concerned or worried, you should see a doctor immediately.

just wondering if you have a tubal litagation done and have been having regular periods than dont get one and is a week late with severe back pain and bilateral side pain, and constantly going to the bathroom what this means. if you did a home pregnancy test and it came back negative and have a history of them coming back negative until your second trimester can you still be pregnant with maybe an ectopic or tubal pregancy.

It depends on what that pregnancy test uses to indicate pregnancy. Read the directions carefully to see what they use to indicate a positive or negative pregnancy test.

Yes a home pregnancy test will be accurate usually. But a blood test is the most accurate way of determing pregnancy.

You may be pregnant but took the test too early or its a false negative. A blood type is most accurate.

If you mean a tubal pregnancy, unfortunately it cannot. If you mean a "test tube" baby, yes it can.

You're definitely not pregnancy because the blood test would of picked this up. Same with a miscarriage and tubal pregnancy.

Yes you can have a positive test after a tubal. I also had a tubal in 2000. Took a home pregnancy test, 3 of them. All came back positive. This was just 5 weeks ago.

You will get a positive result if you are pregnant even after a tubal ligation. A pregnancy test tests for the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Hormone. Or more commonly known as the HCG level. You could have a negative result and still be pregnant if it is too soon and your HCG level is too low. It does not happen often but there have been cases where woman have indeed become pregnant after a tubal ligation. Your best bet is to go see your doctor and get a blood test done. They are the most accurate even in the early stages of a pregnancy.

If you took a pregnancy test and it come out negative your not pregnant you should see your doctor because you might be going though menopause.

No. Benadryl does not cause false negative pregnancy test.

yes, because you would still be pregnant and still have the hormone which is what the home pregnancy test is testing for.

A negative (-) means that you are not pregnant. An a on it means that you are pregnant.
