  • You are probably not pregnant as a blood test is much more accurate than a urine test. It is unusual though that the urine pregnancy test showed a positive because usually if results are wrong it is usually false negatives as the pregnancy hormone wasn't detected yet. If I were you, I would take another urine test to be sure, maybe the one you took was defective. All in all, I bet you are not pregnant. Hope you get the results you are looking for.
  • The HPT's that are made these days will not show a positive test if you do not have HCG hormone in your body. Only pregnany ,some hormone supplements, and some medications can affect the test reading and provide a positive response. If you are not taking medicine, are not on hormone replacement therapy, then the test has percieved the pregnancy hormone HcG-you are pregnant or were pregnant.
  • I called my obsterician after I received a positive result from a home pregnancy test, and my doctor told me that the home pregnancy tests that are out there are in fact pretty accurate, and that if the test was positive then the hcg hormone was detected no matter how faint the line was, and that I should assume that I was pregnant. I had my tubes tied on Febuary 2,2005. My doctors have said that sometimes the fertilized egg can seep through the fallopian tubes even though they have been tied. I guess it goes to show that no Birth Control is full proof. I have 4 girls and I guess that we're getting ready to have number 5.

Unfortunately there is no clear or accurate way to tell which person (yourself or your friend) is pregnant. A pregnancy test may only be used once.

If the test turns positive, then you must make a appointment with your doctor to confirm the pregnancy.

It is very rare that a pregnancy test would come up positive if you weren't pregnant, because it detected HGC in your urine. In most cases if a HPT is wrong it comes up negative. If your period was irregular and you had a positive result you are most likely pregnant. I would try another test, or go see a doctor and request a blood test.

Perform another pregnancy test

If your tubal ligation was successful, it is highly unlikely that you would be pregnant. You could try taking an at home pregnancy test. If it comes out positive you need to see your doctor. If it comes out negative, you could wait another month to see if you get your next period. If you do, OK. If you don't, you should see your doctor.

How many periods do you miss to find out your pregnant?

A missed period, or amenorrhea, is a very poor indicator of pregnancy. A missed period may be simply due to stress, or a sudden change in life style. If you think that you may be pregnant the best thing to do is to either take a home pregnancy test, or consult your physician. But please remember that a positive pregnancy is only considered a probable sign of pregnancy. The only positive signs of pregnancy are audible fetal heartbeats, fetal movement felt by an examiner, and ultrasound visualization of a fetus. So if your test comes back positive you may not actually be pregnant, and the same logic is true of a negative pregnancy test.This link may be helpful to you.

What are some symptoms that show you could possibly be pregnant?

Well to start have you missed a period? If so for how long? Are you on birth control? If you are on birth control you're not pregnant.

Pregnancy symptoms don't mean squat half the time anymore. Half the women who have pregnancy symptoms turn out not to be pregnant.

How it is possible for some one to test negative on a simple urine test and positive on the standard test?

Pregnancy tests measure the level of hcg in your body. When you are pregnant, and as your pregnancy progresses, your hcg level rises. When you take a urine pregnancy test and it comes back negative, the level of hcg is not high enough to register on the test. When the quantitative serum pregnancy test is positive, it is a more acurate reading of how far along in your pregnancy you actually are.
