  • 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.

Wait a few days and take another test. If you still aren't sure, go see a doctor. But odds are, if you got one positive, you're pregnant. It's very unlikely to get a positive and not be pregnant. It's more common to get a negative and be pregnant.

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. You and your friend need to purchase 2 separate pregnancy tests and use one each. Read the instructions prior to this, and you will find out if you're pregnant. If the test turns positive, then you must make a appointment with your doctor to confirm the pregnancy.

Can you still be pregnant if you had an irregular period and you have symptoms of pregnancy but a pregnancy test was positive then took another one and it was negative?

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.

If your pregnancy test comes back positive but one line is faint and you havent missed your period could you be pregnant?

Not likely, but another test wouldn't hurt.
