Hi - I'm pretty confused about what's going on- as put I've tested positive on a home pregnancy test (1-2 weeks) and also missed a contraceptive pill breakthrough bleed, but further tests have tested negative, what is the likelihood I am pregnant?
Can you give me the dates of EACH of the tests along with the Name of each test?
Yep sure - I missed the breakthrough bleed the week after easter weekend, I carried out the first test (clearblue digital) on Monday 5th, another test on Tuesday 6th (which was also clearblue digital) and a last one on Thursday 8th (which was a cheap strip test) I am concerned my urine has been too diluted - I am prone to kidney infections so drink a substantial amount of water daily (urine almost clear, even first urine of the day). For the last week I have been experiencing dull period like cramps and breast tenderness
Well I would check ONE more test - and stay away from the digital test - just use a regular test (but use a regular test from Clear Blue, EPT, or First Response (I like First response if you can get it) - and if the test is negative now (today) - then you are not pregnant - and what occurred is that you had an early miscarriage - which honestly IS EXTREMELY common - 50% of pregnancies end in miscarriage just like what you are experiencing and your symptoms if you did miscarry are due to a hormone called Progesterone.
So do one more test to check for pregnancy and if a GOOD test like I suggested is negative, then you are definitely Not pregnant.
I wish you well
Okay thank you!
