The most sensitive pregnancy test is a blood test for the presence of beta human chorionic gonadotropin. HCG can be detected in the blood as early as 2 days before your period is due to arrive with a blood test.
HCG is also detected in home pregnancy tests but is most accurate when used 1-2 days AFTER a missed period. Errors in home kits which are urine based can occur if the urine is too dilute; if the test is incorrectly administered (not in your case); or if a urinary tract infection exists.
Perhaps check with your GP to test for a UTI? Or be sure that you don't drink too much water before testing? Does that help?
Thanks for the info. after being 6 days overdue i spotted for two days. i had been lifting some heavy boxes for work 35-50 pounds each. I'm not sure if that helped to get me started or not. Once I stopped lifting, the spotting stopped. I am assuming this is my period- yeah!!!
I am still having some odd symptoms but I think they are related to my pills.
very sensitive breast -( my husband is really enjoying this) My stomach has a full feeling to it - i guess you would say bloated. my pelvis area and stomach also get sore and tender after sex.
I'm not saying yes or no, but with my first I spotted very lightly and thought "oh good i'm not pregnant" plus the home pregancy test was negative. the next month after missing my cycle again I took another test and it was postive. come to find out i was 16 weeks pregnant instead of 9 like I thought
Causes 4 multipal "invalid" results w/ home Pregnancy
IDK if I am pregnant. I have taken 4 pregnancy tests. All showed an invalid result. all 4 were different brands. But I haven't had a period in well over 1 year. & I was on the Depo-Provera shot, but stopped it on July 1, 2008. Today's date is November 9, 2009. I had an "period" (I'm naming it for now)It lasted 2 days, & went on & off.... I only bled a total of 8-9 hours. & it was spotting. My husband & I have been having unprotected sex, but are not actively trying. I have gained weight & have been nauseated for a while. When shopping I was asked by a female cashier if I was purchasing the milk (ect) with WIC. I have been asked by many women if I was & other related questions. But I haven't been able to get a single negative or positive result from an at home test, & I havent even seen a Doctor since September of 2008 due to lack of money. If anyone has been through this, or u know someone who has, I would love any information (Facts only Please.) on possible causes.
