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.

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.

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.

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

Wife had an hcg shot 11 days ago you had an iui 10 days ago today you got positive pregnancy results even from a digital test you tested last week and all the tests were negative Are you pregnant?

The hcg shot can cause a false positive pregnancy test, so if the most recent pregnancy tests are negative, you're probably not pregnant. But definitely check with your doctor!

At home pregnancy tests are not 100% accurate.

Am I pregnant if I got two negative tests one day and two positive tests the next day?

You are most likely pregnant. Chances are the tests taken the first day were used just before you had enough hCG to confirm pregnancy, one day later the hCG had increased enough to give you your positive pregnancy tests. This is why false negative pregnancy tests are very common if used too soon. False positive tests are very rare.

pregnancy tests can read a false negative but not a false positive

Back in December your doctor took a pregnancy test It came out positive Now I took three yesterday and two came out negative with one positive am i still pregnant?

Probably - I expect it is because the levels of pregnancy hormone needed for the tests to be positive has dropped. I would still go and see your doctor or midwife, however

Home pregnancy tests are not always accurate. It is always best to see a doctor for accurate pregnancy results.

check your doctor.

Yes, but I would go to the doctor to confirm it. A negative result is more likely to be incorrect than a positive result. False positives are rare

Two positive pregnancy tests usually don't lie. Sounds like a possible miscarriage.
