as long as the test has been left in the package it shold be ok but i would get a new one As the above poster said as long as the package you are going to use is not open. On the side of the box and package there is a expiration date. Example: Best before January 15, 2007.

If you have a positive pregnancy test is it possible to still have the hcg hormone in your system from your last pregnancy if your baby is 5 months old?

In most cases, a positive pregnancy test 5 months after a birth represents a new pregnancy. There is a rare condition called gestational trophoblastic disease that rarely occurs after a normal pregnancy that can cause a persistent positive test. This condition is very rare. If you have a positive pregnancy test, you should go see your doctor to confirm the status of pregnancy. A positive pregnancy test 5 months after birth is not normal and represents a new pregnancy or a problem of some kind.

If a first response pregnancy test is old could it give a positive resalt?

Well from experience, ANY old pregnancy test can give you a false result. My best friend thought she was pregnant and she owned a box of old pregnancy tests, well she used 3 and they all said that she was pregnant, so she went to the doctor and she wasnt pregnant. Well about 3 months ago, she had the same problem and I had an old one laying around my house so I gave it to her and it said that she wasnt pregnant. Now she is 3 months pregnant. ALWAYS ALWAYS use an up to date pregnancy test.

I took a home pregnancy test 2 days ago and it came out positive but when i took a urine test at the doctors it came out negative can the doctors pregnancy test be wrong?

Yes they can be wrong. I had 3 positive home tests and my doctors were negative but now i have a 9 week old baby! my GP admitted that some hpts can be better than the ones at the doctors! Many of my friends have used both home pregnancy tests and doctor tests, and the doctors HAVE been wrong. Although, the home-pregnancy tests can, too, be incorrect. One of my friends, home-pregnancy test was negative, and 1 1/2 months later, she was throwing-up and gaining weight, in both her body and breast area. She went to the hospital and sure enough, she was having twins!

I had my tubes tied 4 years ago i am almost 2 months late all the symptoms of pregnancy home test came out negative have any ideas?

It depends on how old your are. I went through this several times, it could bve a false preganacy or you may be ging through post menapause. It could also be that your cycle is changing. Good luck and hope everything goes well for you. If you are two months late, it is doubtful the home pregnancy test would give you a false positive. See your doctor.

If you have been having unptotected sex there is a possiblility. To make sure take a home pregnancy test. You are of an age when you may start missing periods so it is very difficult to tell. If pregnancy is a real no-no make sure you use proper contraception.
