Hello, I took a home test too and it came out positive, so I went to health department and their test came out netgative. So I went to see my family Dr. and I was 2 weeks pregnancy. What kind of ept test did you take? If you don't want to go to the doctor. I would take a first response test.I hope this helped. God bless Carrie

Hi, I too went to the health dept and had 2 tests taken, they didnt even wait a full 5 mins before telling me they were negative and by the time I got to my van they were both positive! I went back in and the dummies said the lines were to faint to be considered positive, but I took the tests to my dr and they said they were positive! So yes they can be wrong and this also happened with my last child who is now 6. Health dept's suck!

If you took 4 pregnancy tests the same day and the 2 first onces were positive the last 2 were nagative is that normal?

HPT are 99.9% accurate with positive answers. So they are almost never wrong. Seeing how you got 2 positive answers, the "pregnancy hormone" is present in your system. HPT are only about 50% accurate with negative answers. If you are still uneasy about the readings from the HPT, you can go to your local health department and request a pregnancy test there.

What does it mean when you missed a period one month and have all the signs of being pregnant but all tests are negative and then the next month you start your period a week late?

Irregular periodsMany women have irregular menstrual cycles. Periods that vary by a few days are normal. But women who frequently "miss" or "skip" their periods should see a doctor to determine the underlying cause. There could be serious gynecological or endocrinological problems. Hope this helpsDepends on if you went to a doctor or not. Sometimes home pregnancy tests can be wrong. I've had two friends take home pregnancy tests and they were wrong and one of my friends took multiple home pregnancy tests before she went to the doctor. By the way, the home pregnancy tests they took said it was negative. If you went to a doctor then it could possibly have been too early to detect it. Also, you can have periods and spotting while pregnant, or worse it could be a miscarriage, but you would feel pain with that. I would recommend going to your doctor or health department and getting a pregnancy test.
