How do you know if you definitely miscarried if you redid a pregnancy test after what was thought a miscarriage and there is a faint positive line?
If at all possible, go to the doctor to be sure.
Is it possible to be pregnant if your period was two weeks late with blood clots but when you took a hpt it was positive?
Had miscarriage 5 weeks ago not had normal period but just did pt and it was posotive am i really pregnant or is this normal?
Chances of pregnancy It may depend on the amount of weeks pregnant you were when you miscarried. I miscarried at 14 weeks and 5 weeks later got a positive result on a home pregnancy test, which was actually another pregnancy. I would suggest that unless you lost the baby in the second trimester this positive result is indeed referring to a new pregnancy.
If you have had a miscarriage before can a home pregnancy test show negative and actually be positive?
Having a previous miscarriage wouldn't change the outcome of a pregnancy test. ~pawsalmighty It may actually read a positive result if you miscarried early enough before. The length depends on how long you were pregnant. This is because your hormone levels are dropping but still exist; therefor a + reading will show up.
How long does it take for the pregnancy hormones to leave your body after being 9 weeks pregnant and have a miscarriage?
If its been a week after a miscarriage and you take a pregnancy test and it comes back positive are you be pregnant?
You had a miscarriage 3 weeks ago and took a pregnancy test that said positive is that your hormones from the old pregnancy?
False positives are very rare, less than one in a hundred positive tests are false. However with the very sensitive tests nowadays it may show up positive and then you have a very early miscarriage. Even 20 years ago tests were not that sensitive and women 'miscarried' at the time of their period without ever realising they were pregnant.
It depends when you think you miscarried. If it was before or soon after your period was due, you probably can't know. But if it was a week or more after, you can do a blood test or even a home pregnancy test and if it comes out positive, you either are or were pregnant and miscarried. If you were pregnant, you would have a trace of HCG (the hormone your body makes when you…
You took several pregnancy tests that were positive and then later turned negative are you pregnant?
Yes, if a pregnancy test detects enough of the HCG hormone(which is the pregnancy hormone) then it registers as a positive test. This hormone is ONLY present in the placenta of an embryo/fetus and is released when the fertalized egg implants in your uterus. Some woman experience a period through out their entire pregnancy. Unfortunately it is also possible that you had a miscarriage and the hormone is still present in your body, which would…
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…
If you still have a positive pregnancy test a week after a suspected miscarriage what does this mean?
It means that there is still the presence of the pregnancy hormone (hCG). Home pregnancy tests give positive results when they detect the presence of hCG. It can take days to several weeks for a woman's hCG levels to return to baseline after a miscarriage; it all depends on how far along she was. Taking home pregnancy tests in the first few weeks after a miscarriage is not a reliable way to check for pregnancy…
If a pregnancy test has a very faint positive line between ten and twenty minutes after taking it can you be pregnant?
Yes, you could be. Take it again in a few days to be sure, also, take it first thing in the morning when your hormones have the strongest concentration. First answer is correct. the pregnancy test tests for a hormone usually only found in women if they are pregnant or have recently miscarried. If you have recently had a miscarriage, there could be some residual HCG.
If you think you are about two weeks pregnant and had a once off heavy bleeding and the pregnancy test showsis positive does that mean you had a miscarriage?
It is possible, but the bleeding could also have been from implantation bleeding. A pregnancy test will show positive for a while after a miscarriage because your body has not rid itself of the HCG (pregnancy hormone) levels yet. The further along you were, the longer a pregnancy test will show positive. I would still be on the lookout for any symptoms of pregnancy, continue taking your prenatal vitamins (or at least folic acid), refrain…
If the miscarriage was recent, yes, probably. I took a pregnancy test on the day I started bleeding from my miscarriage and it was positive. The ER docs said that only conformed the presence of pregnancy hormones, not whether it was a viable pregnancy. However, my midwife took blood a week later and advised me to take another pregnancy test at the end of the month to confirm my pregnancy hormones were going away. She…
