I had a positive home pregnancy test on Sunday the 14th, the line was very faint so I tested again on Tuesday. That test was positive as well, and much more aparent. I started to cramp and spot ever so lightly on thursday, so being paranoid I took another test that evening. It was positive. I woke up the next morning with the same symptoms and went in to see the doctor. My first appointment to confirm the pregnancy was supposed to be the 26th of February. I went to the womens clinic in the Veterans Hospital, needless to say they don't ever get twenty somethings in there for anything pregnancy related. They did a urine test, said it was NEGATIVE! Refused to do blood work, and told me I probably miscarried.....I have never been so sad, I was just shocked. I woke up today in disbelief, still with pregnancy symptoms and retested with a different brand. It was positive right away. I do plan to go to a different doctor on monday. Should I get my hopes up??? Or just continue to greive??? please help

Hm... that's weird. I would expect them to take a blood test b/c they are far more sensitive to the hormones...

It could be that is was negative b/c they did it wrong. But it was not nice to tell you that you probably miscarried. I would seriously report that person. No sympathy hu?

Sorry, lol. But yeah, i doubt that so many positive at home pregnancy tests gave you a false positive each time. Don't get your hopes up but i would definitely insist on a blood test!

See I have had symptoms that I keep refusing to think I am pregnant. I told my boyfriend and he goes i think you are bought E.P.T. took one that afternoon and very light plus sign that was halfway there, I than took one in the morning and this one was positive no doubts in my mind I than called my family doctor to see if they could schedule a blood draw for me and I couldn't wait any longer with no response I than called my OBGYN and they scheduled one right away. Reasons for this I am high risk for I have a heart shaped uterus and another reason I am on methotraxate. Mind you the meth should be aborting an unborn child not letting it survive. I went in for blood work and it cam back negative. The OBGYN said as far as they are concerned I am negative according to the test and keep taking all pills, and if you do not start your period take another test and call us. Mind you I told them I had a period normal at the end of August and was done Sept 2. I said I'd only be maybe a week and 4 days.



I have tested early before and been pregnant and only to loose it a week later. I called my skin dr and they told me to get off all pills the same as the family doctor did today. They are considering me pregnant until further notice but it is confusing to not know. The boyfriend and I already have a 3 month wait to tell anyone if I do get pregnant and now we both sit here and have no idea.



Has anyone had anything like this before?

Ask your family doc for another test or see if they will do a blood test. I have no idea what the issue could be, but I would talk to my family doc.

When I found out I was pregnant this time, I took about 4 tests at home and all were pos, went to the doc and the urine test was neg. and they were like I am sorry you are not pregnant, and I told them ummm yes I am, I had them do the blood test and it came back pos, they said that the urine tests are not as sensetive as the blood. The levels on the blood one were low since I was only a couple weeks along, but they were there.

I would def go to a different doctor. So many positive HPT's can't be wrong, can they? Def get a blood test. And I would also file a complaint with the VA about the last nurse or doc that did the last test. That was totally insensitive. What a horrible thing to say to someone!

I hope everything turns out for the best :)

Thanks Natalie.....Ohhh I was just sitting there sobbing, and they were acting like it was no big deal. I am a veteran, so the VA covers all of womens health care, unfortunately I don't think the VA clinic in Columbus, Ohio gets many twenty something women coming in for pregnancy test confirmations. They are supposed to do the confirmation then when it is positive refer me to an outside OB/GYN. I am just going to use our own insurance and go to see someone who deals with this on an everyday basis. I'm just so torn, but I can't believe it's just gone.
