When you have your period it is 99% that you are not pregnant. If you are pregnant there is HCG in your system therefore even with a light period you can take the test and it would come up positive despite the bleeding. Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy will not affect the outcome of a pregnancy test. A pregnancy test will only look for HCG in your urine & will only turn positive when HCG has been found in your urine. Vaginal bleeding will not affect the result at all hun. However you should not be experiencing vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy. Light bleeding is common during the implantation bleeding process but not every pregnant woman will experience this. Brown spotting can also occur during pregnancy. A pregnancy test will only be negative when you're not pregnant or when you performed the test too early. A pregnancy test can usually performed 2-3 weeks after intercourse & the result will be accurate. However it is advisable you see your Doctor for a pregnancy blood test or if you suspect you're miscarrying, go straight to A&E for a thorough examination.

no because if you are pregnant even at an early stage in your pregnancy the hcg hormone shows up

Due to the possibility of lower levels of hormone with ectopic pregnancy it is possible to have a home test show that you are not pregnant while you have an EP.

Yes, it is possible. There may not be enough HCG (pregnancy hormone) in your urine to trigger a positive result. To see if you really are pregnant, take another test :)

As I was once told, "a positive is a positive"The body produced a hormone called HCG only when pregnant.HCG is the hormone that is produced by the placenta during pregnancy. This hormone is what a pregnancy test detects. It stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. During a normal pregnancy, the HCG levels will steadily rise throughout pregnancy.

It is possible because the pregnancy hormone is not always detected due to lack of enough of the hormone Wait 2 weeks and try again ♥Sarah♥

It either means you're not pregnant or not far enough along to detect the pregnancy hormone. A blood test is most accurate.

HPT is very sensitive for the pregnancy hormone in your urine. If it is negative, chances are slim to none that you are pregnant. You can always redo the test, or see your doctor for an exam.

hCG is in pregnant mothers.It is tested to identify pregnancy.

yes you can still be pregnant your hormone levels may not be high enough yet for the test to detect

Sperm has nothing to do with a pregnancy test. A pregnancy test is done by a woman to find out if she is pregnant or not. She pees on it and it detects the pregnancy hormone.

None to my knowledge, the hormone hCG is the hormone needed for a pregnancy to be viable. A false negative is an indication it is too early to test, otherwise there is no pregnancy.

The inside of the uterus is lined with the "endometrium" which is shed every month if you are not pregnant. Once you get pregnant that lining changes to the "decidua" which stays in place because of the hormone progesterone and hCG the pregnancy hormone during pregnancy.

If you are not taking hormone supplements then you are pregnant. You can get a false negative, you cannot get a false positives.

Wait 5 weeks. it is possible for a home pregnancy test to detect the pregnancy hormone 8 days after conception. if you test too soon, it could read negative but you may actually be pregnant. it is safer to wait 14 days because after 8 days, the hormone may not be strong enough to detect!

Yes. Home pregnancy tests only read up to a certain amount of hCG or the pregnancy hormone. Anything above that number would read negative.

It is possible to get a false negative but not a false positive. If it is a cheap test or if it is too early in the pregnancy, the at home test may not recognize the hormone that the test is checking for. However, if you get a positive it means the hormone is present and that she is pregnant.

No- beta hCG is a required hormone for pregnancy; if the embryo does not produce it, your period will come as if there had been no conception. That is part of why pregnancy tests are so accurate, because the hormone has to be there, if it isn't, you cannot be pregnant.

yes, because you would still be pregnant and still have the hormone which is what the home pregnancy test is testing for.

I think this is known as a blighted ovum.The sperm and ovum meet but not properly. You get a hormone surge, sign and symptoms of pregnancy but negative preg test. Its a real cheat.

Pregnancy tests are almost always accurate with home tests it is more common to get a false negative then a positive if it says you are pregnant then you are.... With a blood test you will most likely always get the correct reading because your blood changes it increases and it develops a hormone that is only there when pregnant.

There is a hormone that can be traced in your urine when you are pregnant, and that is called the HCG hormone. Advanced pregnancy tests can detect this hormone & what percentage of the HCG hormone that is in your urine.

Yes a pregnancy test can show negative when you actually are pregnant. The most common false negative happens when there is not enough of the pregnancy hormone HGH to be detected as in early pregnancy. This is why some tests come with another test so that you may retest later. Concentrations of the hormone are higher and easier to detect when you first wake up before you drink anything or go to the bathroom.

Yes, you can still be pregnant with a negative reading on a pregnancy test. Factors include incorrect usage of an at-home test, taking the test soon after conception (before the pregnancy hormone has a chance to "register"), and certain drugs used while taking the test that alter the pregnancy hormone. If you are unsure about the results of a pregnancy test wait a few days and take the test again or go to your ob/gyn for a blood test.

No, low hCG hormone causes a negative pregnancy test.

I don't think anything can to be honest. For a pregnancy test to be positive you have to have the HCG hormone in your system, this hormone is only in your system when you are pregnant so if it's positive then i think you are pregnant.
