A pregnancy test measures the amount of HCG that is released into the body/bloodstream of a pregnant woman. Home pregnancy tests detect HCG, and that is how you can find out if you are pregnant. Only pregnant women produce enough of this hormone to be detected on pregnancy tests. Having your periods will not effect the result of the test. If you are pregnant, you are producing HCG, and the test will pick it up unless you are less than 4 weeks pregnant.

Yes unfortunately the test will still show positive as you will still have some pregnancy hormone levels in your body.

Unlikely. Anyway, get yourself a pregnancy test. Keeping such a doubt won't do you any good.

User Avatar

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

irregular periods doesn't affect a pregnancy test result

A pregnancy test can show a positive result if you have miscarried. There is still enough hormone in your body to produce a positive result.

Yes you can do a pregnancy test while in your periods. But there's no need to do it because you are 100% negative. Having monthly periods means that you are not pregnant.

Until all the hormones are washed from your body, you can still show positive on an OTC pregnancy test. The earlier you miscarry the sooner the test will become negative as there are fewer hormones in the body.

If you are still having periods, then you are most likely not pregnant. But the only way to know for sure is with a pregnancy test or ultrasound exam.

you can not be pregnant at the same time you are having periods.

Yes. In fact, my second child came about the same way. I missed several periods and still negative on pregnancy test. Be sure! Get a blood test from a doctor! During first weeks of pregnancy, home pregnancy tests don't always work. Also look for other signs, naseau, dizziness, fatigue. With my first pregnancy, I missed three periods and still was negative on test, but I also was unable to run without becoming very tired(strange for me - a 20K a week runner)-The doctor's blood test was positive! Good LUCK:)

If you are four weeks pregnant you will have enough hCH to have a positive pregnancy test.

pregnancy test is done if a woman missed her periods.

To know the difference, you should take a pregnancy test. If you haven't had sex for a while but are skipping periods, and you are over 35, it very well could be perimenopause or full-blown menopause. If you are sexually active, you should take a pregnancy test. It might also be early stages of menopause, but if you are still having ANY periods, there is still the chance of pregnancy.

Yes you can, though the accuracy is decreased that early. But you still can.

User Avatar

Yes. Even though in the wrong place, the embryo is still implanted and so will release the pregnancy hormone HCG which is detected on a pregnancy test.

I got a positive hpt when I was 4 days late with an etopic pregnancy. It depends on the sensitivity of the test and when you use the test.

User Avatar

Yes you could. You still produce the hormones and a pregnancy test could give the answer as could an ultrasound. if you have had unprotected sex and no periods get a pregnancy test

User Avatar

There are always pregnancy tests that can show up negative and you can still be pregnant. The best thing to do is check with your doctor and ask for a pregnancy test. Remember though even the doctor's test can even be wrong. There is not one single pregnancy test that is always 100% correct.

User Avatar

Yes. You can still have a pregnancy. You have to wait till you get the periods. The pregnancy test be repeated weekly till you get the periods.

User Avatar

No pregnancy is pregnancy and it doesn't matter if you were on the pill at the time. It will still show positive if you were pregnant.
