No Preg test are only looking for a hormone called HCG which is only present if you are preg or recently miscarried.

I have heard both yes and no for this however if you do research into it, its very possible for the test to come back positive because your mind tricks your body into believing its pregnant so the hormone levels will show signs of pregnancy

A pregnancy test will come out positive all through your pregnancy because it is testing for HCG a hormone that is produced when you are pregnant all 9 months and a little after you give birth too.

The main sign of phantom pregnancy is nesting. The bunny will start to pluck out the hair on her chest and tummy to build the nest with. In the case of some rabbits they will pull hair out of a bonded mate to nest build also. You will often see a nesting bunny frantically running around with a mouth full of hay to take to her nest. If you bunny is nesting without reason (i.e. she has not been bred, she is spayed, she has not had any contact with a male) then you can pretty much be sure it is a phantom pregnancy. A phantom or false pregnancy can be detected in several ways. If you have not bred your doe you KNOW it is a false pregnancy. If she goes over 32 days it is a false pregnancy. You can palpate at 15 days and if you do not feel babies but she insists on nesting you will know it is a false or phantom pregnancy. A doe having a false pregnancy will nest just like a doe that is pregnant. I have witnessed some that tend to go overboard nearly stripping themselves naked because no babies come. The doe that you determine to be having a phantom or false pregnancy should be bred immediately. There should be no 'bonded mate' for a doe with phantom pregnancy every rabbit should have it's own cage.

If it's a pregnancy test the answer is no, A test can come back negative even though its positive. But if it's positive, it's positive 99% of the time.

For a while after giving birth a pregnancy test can still come back positive. However, you shouldn't be having sex for at least six weeks after giving birth. So there should not be a need to take a test at that time.

Yes, a tubal pregnancy will still produce HCG and will still be detected by a pregnancy test.

Yes it is possible. Some woman get there period during the first few months of pregnancy. You need to see a doctor to find out if you are pregnant. They check with a pregnancy test and if it is positive they will give you a sonogram to make sure that you are pregnant and that everything is ok with your pregnancy. Having a positive pregnancy test doesnt always mean that you are pregnant. Something else in your urine can be causing the test to come positive. But having a positive test can in most cases mean that you are pregnant. Check with your doctor, that is the only accurate way of finding out.

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

User Avatar

if your hormones still read the pregnancy level than yes.

User Avatar

Yes, because when you took the first pregnancy test it could have been too early in the pregnancy to detect any hCG.

User Avatar

Why would you want too??!?! You are going to HAVE to be pregnant!!

User Avatar

More than likely yes but there are only reasons why a pregnancy test could come up positive make an appointment with you doc and they will confirm it with you

User Avatar

I would contact your physician and ask when to make an appointment. Most doctors will tell you to come make an appointment as soon as you receive a positive pregnancy test.

User Avatar

Yes this can happen but it is rare. This can be as a result of a phantom pregnancy.

User Avatar

Only if the sperm made you pregnant.

If you are genuinely having a period, then the test will come out negative because you cannot be pregnant. However, some women think they are menstruating when they may be bleeding for some reason in early pregnancy. The test then could either be positive or negative depending on the condition of the baby.

I wouldn't rule out a phantom pregnancy it could be possible especially if you are longing for a child, I know someone it happened to on three occasions.If you're showing and nothing is coming back positive you may want to get an abdominal ultrasound to rule out any other abnormalities (or to confirm pregnancy)

User Avatar

Not always, each pregnancy is different. Having experienced pregnancy before, you might notice symptoms sooner because you might know what to look for.

if it says pregnate it could be a false positive meaning you could have cancer instead

User Avatar

Sometimes your body will take awhile for a pregnancy test to come back positive. If you continue to not have a period, you should still check for pregnancy. A pregnancy test is most likely to show positive after your normal period time has come and gone.

User Avatar

it should show you are pregnant Hello there. A Ovulation test will ONLY come out positive when LSH....the Ovulating hormone has been found in your urine. Some women do claim to of had a positive Ovulation test during early pregnancy but this information is so inconclusive that its not a reliable pregnancy testing method at this time. To determine if you are pregnant, its adviseable to buy a pregnancy test and see your doctor for a blood test to be certain.

No, it takes a few minutes which are noted on the box of the test.
