Pregnancy Tests
Periods while Pregnant

Does it mean you are pregnant if you took a pregnancy test that came out negative while it was still wet but the next morning it looked faintly positive?

If it didn't show up as positive within ten minutes of taking the test, it is probably negative. Many tests show up positive after sitting out for a few hours.

Yes this does mean you are pregnant as hcg has been detected in your urine. See your Doctor for confirmation. A false positive result is exceedingly rare. The result may be light positive because you have tested too early or are not as far along into your pregnancy as you thought.

Nope it sounds like your wife is pregnant again. Although rare to get pregnant again in the first three months after giving birth its been known to happen.

.....When i found out i was pregnant with my 3rd child i had a test done at the doctors that showed up negative, i then got transfered to the hospital for an xray on my chest but because i said their was a possibility that i could be pregnant i had to then get a re test, the test came back very faintly positive i asked if you could get a false positive they said no, u can get false negatives tho because when youre in very early stages of pregnancy it is sometimes to early to detect....

Yes. 2 faint lines counts as a positive. Take one after you miss your period also.

Listen to the doctors. You are obviously not pregnant. i was feeling pregnant i took a wall greens early pregnancy test three days before my missed period it came back faintly positive a took three more the next day all negative so i went to the doctor and they gave me a blood test and that said negative also i do have a paragurd IUD in and that's supposed to be over 99% affective. (its been 4 days since i went to the doc.)I am only a day late on my period is it possible i could be pregnant?? maybe its just my body being goofy.

You need to wait 3 days or more and take another test or go see the doctor.

You could be pregnant. Consider waiting another 4-5 days to see if your period comes. If it does not, see your doctor for a Urinary Pregnancy Test for verification. Your doctor will advise you with pre-natal care.

yes in the beginning if it is too soon the pregnancy test will barley show up it happened too me.

No! Thea amount of hormone in our body is early at this time because of your stage of pregnancy, but any kind of even fantly positive result means the hormone is there, and thus, you are definitely pregant.

that happened to me i took a pregnancy test 2 weeks or maybe 3 after unprotected sex when i first took the test just one line popped up then when i went back it was faintly positive then maybe a week after my late period i started bleeding very heavily and took 3 more test and they where all negative and when i went to my docter i found out i miscarried == == Unfortunately if you test very early you can get a positive hpt then bleed very heavy cause the egg did not take then you can get a neg. cause the baby is no longer there. That is the reason why most doctors do not like to test early. This has happened to a lot of women when they didn't even know it cause they get there period like normal.

If pregnancy tests are left for a while, they can look as if they have produced a positive result. Most tests have a time window in which to read the test for this reason. It might say to read the test within ten minutes of doing it or similar. Always take notice of the time given, and only trusts results within that time frame. At twelve weeks, it would be most unusual to only be showing a faint positive. Blood tests are always quite reliable - more so than the home tests - so if they repeatedly give a negative result, then you can be fairly certain that you are not pregnant.

It can be too early if you are pregnant to show a dark line...wait a week or even a few days and it should be darker if you are indeed pregnant. I had faint lines on 3 tests with my first pregnancy. If you wait and re-test and you don't see anything than it was probably a false positive or the test was done incorrectly.

I have the same problem and did the 2 pregnant tests too and they are both negative. However with the spot bleeding and missed period, i am not sure whether i am pregnant or i have vagina infection. I will make appointment to see my doctor to check it out, just to make sure. So i suggest you to do the same. Good luck.....

Saintly and quaintly rhyme with faintly.

The man had a white appearance and seemed very faintly.

If the line is faint I would suggest redoing the test in two or three days, if it is going to be positive the line should be much more pronounced. You might also want to try another brand with a digital read out. If the line stays faintly there, see your health care provider for advice.

No, it is an adverb. 'Faint' is an adjective.

Not firmly, almost faded.

His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and falling faintly.

If you are pregnant, the line shows up almost immediately. If you wait 10 mins, and a line faintly appears, more than likely, its just the test sitting for too long. There are specific instructions on those tests that tell how many minutes to wait before discarding the results. Usually its about 5 mins.

it smells like oranges faintly.

Yes, it can. Mine did, It shows up faintly but i it shows up at ALL then it is true. The way they work is if the tests detect a certain hormone, which is ONLY released if pregnant, and breaks down a cellulose wall to pruce a dyed line. If it appears AT ALL even if really faintly you are producing this hormone. and thus : babies. You may want to look into contacting your local doctor to ask them about what youc an do with it. Terminating in a short timeframe is a lot easier than later on and can be done easily and safely.
