I REALLY need to know if a Kidney infection/ UTI can cause a FALSE POSITIVE?? =
My sister was admitted to the hospital this early morning for a fever of 102.5, and she took two Positive Pregnancy test and got two Positives, one on Thurs or Fri and then again on Sunday....
The nurse told her she's NOT Pregnant, and only has an infection, but the nurse couldn't explain the two Positive Pregnancy test...... She lost her baby Last August, and she's "claiming" she's prego again the same time as last time. She'll be very upset if she is not.
The hormone levels can be up for a very long time. If she miscarried last August there is a possibility she may need a D&C. Sounds like she still still remnants of the fetus inside her uterus. She needs to consult a OB/GYN
I don't believe it is possible for uti infection to cause positive on HCG test.
If she had a miscarriage in Aug the year before it highly unlikely that she would still have enough hcg in her system to get a positive in the April. Personally i think she might be pregnant again.
