The same reason you could get one negative and three positive at home. Almost all pregnancy tests are around 98% accurate. The one at the doctors was most likely wrong and from he sounds of it a congratulations is in order! If you're still not convinced, (like me, I took 4 at home and 1 at the docs before I believed it!) get another test done by your GP.

Go to the doctor to get a real test.

yes you can, its called a false positive. However check with your doctor to see if you are pregnant as it could be that the negative tests were wrong.

What does it mean when you have got 4 positive pregnancy tests and three negative?

it means you should stop trying out of the box and go to the doctor

I took a home pregnancy test and it was positive went to the doctors and the one I took there was negative I took two more home tests and they are positive are you pregnant or not I am 6 weeks late?

Go to the doctor again; the doctor's tests are more accurate.

I have taken 6 home pregnancy tests that wrer positive but a test to confirm at your doctors was negative What is most likely to be right?

i would say weigh it up 6 positive and 1 negative. its very hard to get a false positive but really easy to get a false negative. it could be that your doctor has made a mistake or the hormone detection level in the hpt's (home pregnancy tests) is lower than the one your doctor used. it might be worth asking your doctor to redo the test or ask him to do a blood test for pregnancy. alternatively take one of you hpts to your doctor and show them that you have had a positive result on them but a negative result on the one they did and then you GP could advise you on what to do next.

I have had two positive pregnancy tests then I did one today and it was negative?

After 8 weeks without a period, you are likely to be pregnant; at that time make an appointment to visit your doctor.

Can you still be pregnant but get a neg urine test?

Yes. With my son, I had positive home pregnancy tests, but a negative urine test at the doctor's office. Obviously, they were wrong.

Can a pregnancy test come up positive but your blood test show negative?

Just possibly. Try more tests in a few days and consult a doctor.

I have had three positive urine pregnancy tests and a negative blood test which is corrct?

I had the same thing happen to me. I took several home pregnancy tests that came back positive. I went to the doctor they did a blood test and it came back as negative. They sent me to hospital to do a 48 hour hormone test and determined I was miscarraging the baby. You should ask your doctor if this is hapening to you. Hope this helps.

If you have gotten 3 positive home pregnancy tests and 4 negative Is it possible you are still pregnant?

it would depend on what order the test results came in. if you had the positive tests fist then the negative then it could be you have had an early miscarrage. in which case you should see your doctor. if you had the negative tests first then the positive tests, then you more than likely are pregnant. in which case again see the doctor! it would be worth getting the doctor to run some bloods just to be on the safe side. i personally dont believe in a "false positive" result. unless its in the order as stated above.
