Any line in the "result" window, anything at all, no matter how faint, can be considered a positive result. Early pregnancy produces low levels of HCG (the pregnancy hormone detectable in urine) and thus produce a barely-there line. Test again in a few days and the line will get darker and more visible. (Levels of HCG double every day in early pregnancy) So in short, it means your pregnant. If the control window has a line, the test is working properly. If the result window also has a line, even if it's almost invisible, it's a positive result.

How could you get a false pregnancy?

A chemical pregnancy is a flase pregnancy in a way as there is no fetus there its just your body thinking its pregnancy and actually doing everything pregnant bodies do. Its very strange. But the only way to get a false positive pregnancy test is if your taking medication containing HCG. On rare occasions you can encounter a false positive due to improper testing, expired pregnancy tests, rare medical conditions such as certain types of cancer, evaporation lines, a recent pregnancy or a chemical pregnancy.A chemical pregnancy is a very early miscarriage. It usually occurs from the time the women takes a pregnancy test (that shows positive and her period.) and before a heart beat develops. ( .

Are you pregnant if you took 3 pregnancy tests and got different results and an ultrasound showed that you were not pregnant but your stomach is getting bigger?

If you have a test that shows a positive pregnancy result then YES you ARE pregnant. Forget the negatives. A positive is a positive. A ultrasound can not detect a baby till you are 6 plus weeks into your pregnancy. Actually you can see an embryo earlier than 6 weeks. You should go back to the doctor and get another ultrasound. This could be a molar pregnancy. See a doctor, they will be able to give you a blood test and tell for sure.

Can a Clear Blue home pregnancy test detect an ectopic pregnancy?

Ok... if you have an ectopic pregnancy, it is possible that a home pregnancy test (any brand) shows positive [when a woman has an ectopic pregnancy, it does NOT always show as positive]. It did show positive in my case. BUT, it will NOT tell you you have an ectopic pregnancy. What you feel physically will tell you if you have an ectopic pregnancy; bleeding (different degrees), abdominal pain (severe to light), dizziness, rushing to the toilet (diarrhoea...) feeling faint or even fainting (then, it is an emergency of higher priority [tube ruptured and abdominal internal bleeding], irregular heart beats (palpitations), hot flushes, etc. The symptoms might start showing weeks after becoming pregnant.

Can you get a false positive with pregnancy test?

A pregnancy test works much like litmus paper. Depending on the results of your urine is the color that the line shows. But the stick was still saturated therefore bringing out the slight shadow of a line. But there was nothing present to indicate pregnancy , so no definite line was shown.
