Yes the test will show positive for awhile after since it takes time for the hormones to settle.

If you had 3 pregnancy tests that are positive but one not pregnant what do you believe?

the positive answer on the tests are very rarely wrong, HCG is the hormone produced when someone is pregnant, which is what shows up on the test and is not there to detect by urine tests when someone is not pregnant. although there are some medications etc that can affect the reliability of the test.

Will a miscarriage show up positive on a pregnancy test?

A miscarriage most certainly could show up positive on a pregnancy test, however, this depends entirely upon how far along you were in the pregnancy before miscarrying. If you're in the first trimester and are getting a negative test result but are confident that you are miscarrying or are about to, it's quite possible that you simply have not been pregnant long enough to have hCG levels high enough for an at home test to pick it up (as was the case when I miscarried). Otherwise, yes, you can still have a positive pregnancy test with a miscarriage. The tests pick up the amount of hCG (human chorionic gnadotropin) present in your urine. The further along you are the higher your hCG levels will be. The test does not take into account whether or not the pregnancy is still viable (or alive). Whether youre getting a positive test or not, if you believe you are/were pregnant and miscarrying you really need to go see your doctor or OB-GYN. Sometimes what women confuse for a miscarriage is actually a more serious condition. While most miscarriages can be succesfully completed at home without medical intervention, it is highly recommended that you still go to your doctor and discuss what your options are and what the possible outcomes are. Some miscarriages, if not treated by a doctor, could end in an infection that scars the uterus, ultimately reducing your ability to get pregnant in the future.
