Hiya! A increase in HCG through a blood test can be detected by a Quantitative blood test, 42 hours after being previously tested.

Yes, it can. It is still a pregnancy, and does increase HCG levels

No. The only thing that will cause a negative pregnancy test is no HCG in your Urine. A pregnancy test will only become positive when HCG has been detected in your Urine. If it does not become positive then no HCG has been detected. Test in a week and if it is still negative then see your doctor for a blood test or confirmation.

If your blood test came back positive then it is positive.

The O positive blood type has two charateristics, no trace of A or B blood antigens and a positive Rh factor. Positive Rh factor can be an issue during pregnancy, however doctors usually test for blood types during pregnancy. If this is an issue, a Rh shot will be given to the mother for a healthy pregnancy.

10 days for blood test and 14 days for Home pregnancy test. Well it could vary but this is the most likely when pregnancy can be detected. After you missed your period the home pregnancy SHOULD work if you were pregnant. Good luck.

You need to confirm the positive pregnancy test result with your Doctor. See your Doctor for a pregnancy blood test. Pregnancy does cause a increase in vaginal discharge.

It really depends on how long after the bleeding you had the blood test. If you had the blood test within 5 days after the bleeding and it was negative then its possible you wasnt pregnant. But if you had the blood test less than 5 days after the bleeding and it was negative, then you was not pregnant. But a pregnancy test should only go positive when HCG has been detected and this is only during pregnancy.

The chances of that happening are very low as false positive pregnancy tests are very rare

If the blood test is done too early in the pregnancy, the pregnancy won't be detected. If the blood test was done by a doctor, then he/she knows to do it and obtain an accurate result.

No, UTI does not cause a false positive pregnancy test. Pregnancy tests are very specific to hCG (the pregnancy hormone), if the test reads positive you are pregnant.

A beta hcg is a blood test given in early pregnancy to measure the quantity or amount of hcg, the pregnancy hormone. This test can be done as early as a week after ovulation, even before a positive hpt. The result or number of hcg detected will vary from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy.

Hello. A positive pregnancy blood test is never wrong. Congratulations.

That all depends on how much of the hormone is being produce. I know women that have never had a positive home pregnancy test. It only showed up when they had a blood test.http://en.allexperts.com/q/ObGyn-Pregnancy-issues-1007/negative-pregnancy-test-result-1.htm

No, blood can't change type during pregnancy.

3-5 weeks after intercourse. It can be detected 7 days after intercourse with a blood test.AnswerActually, a home pregnancy test would be able to pick up a positive 2-3 weeks after intercourse, or up to 5 days before a missed period, or 4 days before you expect your period to arrive. Most women, however, will not receive a positive until after they have missed their period.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, yes, pregnancy does increase the risk of cerebral palsy, but not pregnancy alone. Factors during pregnancy play a large role. Issues such as infections during pregnancy, blood diseases, ,acterial meningitis, and lack of oxygen to the fetus can increase chances. Pregnancy will not increase the chance of palsy within the mother.

Hello. The two positive home pregnancy tests mean HCG has been detected in your urine. When HCG has been detected this is a strong indication that you are pregnant. The blood test over rules the result of the home pregnancy test and means you're not pregnant. BUT if the blood test was a Qualiative then there is a possibility it was negative because you are not as far along into your pregnancy as you suspected. Go back to your doctor and ask for a QUANTITATIVE BETA HCG pregnancy blood test - this test is highly accurate and measures the amount of HCG in your blood unlike the Qualiative blood test which just gives you a yes or no answer. You will need to write down the name of this test as it can easily be mistaken for the qualiative one. Remember QUANTITATIVE. Good luck. :o)

Yes, an HCG injection can give you a false positive on a blood draw pregnancy test.

Not likely. Get a blood test just to be 100%
