I got a positive hpt when I was 4 days late with an etopic pregnancy. It depends on the sensitivity of the test and when you use the test.
Yes. In both urine and blood tests, HCG is present in ectopic pregnancy.
yes because to have the phantom pregnancy your body secretes pregnancy hormones which is what pregnancy tests look for
The short answer is no. If the pregnancy test is negative, you are not pregnant, and therefore you cannot have an ectopic pregnancy. The long answer is somewhat more complex. There have been case reports in the medical literature of women with demonstrated ectopic pregnancy that had negative urine and even blood pregnancy tests. It is uncertain why this occurred in these circumstances, but it should be noted that this is VERY RARE. For the overwhelming majority of women, a negative pregnancy test means ectopic pregnancy is an impossibility.
Well, since there's really no false positive tests, if your cramping and bleeding either like a normal cycle or moreso then it might be that your body is trying to reject the pregnancy and you may be miscarrying (it's what happened in my first pregnancy as well as with my SIL's ectopic pregnancy). I would see a doctor right away just to be safe.
Most pregnancy tests test for the presence of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in the woman's blood or urine. Ectopic pregnancies are usually picked up by home pregnancy tests however it is possible that do to lower levels of hCG that sometimes result from ectopic pregnancies you could get a false negative. Ectopic pregancies can potentially become very dangeros, if you suspect that you may have an ectopic pregnancy even if a home pregnancy test is negative, it would be wise to see a physician.

Yes. My sister-in-law had an ectopic pregnancy. Pregnancy tests measure the level of HPC (human chorionic gonadotropin) in your system, which is a hormone produced early in pregnancy by the placenta (the sac surrounding the baby). Regardless of the type of pregnancy, a pregnancy test will tell you the correct answer.
Yes. You may have an ectopic pregnancy. You should visit your doctor as soon as you suspect a possible pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy can provide innaccurate test results at home.
Yes, you could be pregnant. Or you could have been pregnant and your second "period" was a miscarriage. Or you could be pregnant but experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, which is very, very dangerous and life threatening. If you haven't yet, purchase a home pregnancy test and take it. If it's negative, your worries are a little less. If it's positive, seek medical attention IMMEDIATELY. And above all else, for ongoing bleeding, do not hesitate to seek care from a medical practitioner, whether or not the pregnancy test is positive. Ectopic pregnancies occasionally elicit negative pregnancy tests, but are still possible. If left untreated, an ectopic pregnancy can result in loss of reproductive organs or even death.
Yes, home pregnancy tests can produce both false positives and false negatives. If a home pregnancy test is positive, you should see a gynecologist to have the pregnancy confirmed as soon as you can.
no... that kind of pregnancy is all in your head
A false positive pregnancy test is extremely rare, so I would say no, if the tests read positive you are most likely pregnant.
When you're pregnant.
Go to the doctor to get a real test.
There are many online websites that will provide you with information about positive pregnancy tests. The best online website to check would be American Pregnancy Org.
pregnancy tests can read a false negative but not a false positive
Your IUD does not affect pregnancy testing. A pregnancy test measures the presence of a hormone called hCG in your urine. Some IUDs [eg the Mirena coil] release hormones, but these will not affect your hCG levels and so have no effect on pregnancy tests.If you have an IUD and get a positive pregnancy test result it is very important that you see your doctor immediately. This is because if you get pregnant with an IUD in-situ you have an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy (where the embryo implants in the Fallopian tubes instead of the uterus). Complications of ectopic pregnancy can be fatal, so your doctor will want to do an urgent ultrasound scan to ensure that you do have one. This is very rare - the risk of pregnancy with an IUD is very low (less than 1 in 1000), and the risk of ectopic pregnancy is lower still, but it is still important to have this checked by a doctor.
False positive pregnancy tests are extremely rare. They are caused by tumors when they occur.
Typical pregnancy tests become positive ten to twelve days after sex.
Yes. My sister-in-law had an ectopic pregnancy (which is what you're describing). Pregnancy tests measure the level of HPC (human chorionic gonadotropin) in your system, which is a hormone produced early in pregnancy by the placenta (the sac surrounding the baby). Regardless of the type of pregnancy, a pregnancy test will tell you the correct answer. Actually it's HCG. Not HPC.
yes i was pregnant 4 weeks and took 4 pregnancy tests and they all came out positive... when i went to the doctor they made another pregnancy test and it was definitely positive so it will show if u have high hormone levels if u dont then u can go to the doctor so they can test ur blood to see if u are pregnant!! goodluck
Based on only my experience with pregnancy tests, they are pretty accurate. Whether you are miscarrying, having an ectopic pregnancy, or just flat out pregnant, the test should read it. The hormone HCG comes from the baby, not from the woman. So, if you are testing positive, there is definitely something inside you. However, I have only heard that some women that have already miscarried and werent' aware of it may still test positive a few days after.
The chances of that happening are very low as false positive pregnancy tests are very rare
