Hello. Since puberty my periods have been pretty irregular. But, For the last 11 months it came every month.*
I haven't had a period since may and I feel pretty pregnant. I have headaches, strong *cramps that come and go, and I feel bloated. I took six pregnancy tests and the fourth one came back
Positive with a faint line. The other ones came back negative. I don't know what to do. Could I still be pregnant? I wonder if my body doesn't produce enough hcg. When my sister got pregnant, all the tests (urine and blood) came back negative and she could only detect the pregnancy when she was 6 1/2 months pregnant.
Without knowing the situation surrounding your testing (did you take them all at the same time... were they all the same manufacturer... did you wait only the requisite number of minutes... etc) we can't really answer.
Assuming that the one positive was taken properly, I would wait a few days and test again. If that pops up positive, you should make an appointment with your GYN or regular doctor for a confirmation.
Hi and welcome! I agree that the circumstances of the testing can affect the outcome. First of all, was the faint positive with a pink dye test or a blue dye test? Unfortunately, blue dye tests are notorious for false positives. Also, did you take all six test at the same time of day and after holding your urine for the same length of time? Finally, when did you last test?
In any case, it never hurts to check with your doctor to see what's going on. I hope you get some answers soon. Keep us posted!
Thank you for your answers!
I took the first test during the afternoon, because I couldn't wait till next morning. I knew the results would be pretty much unreliable since I was testing a little bit early and it wasn't my first urine. It came back negative. So I waited one week (To see if I'd get my period or if I was indeed pregnant, my hcg level would be higher), and took the test during the morning. Again, negative. A few days later I was still 'feeling weird', so I took another test. Negative.
I had pretty much accepted that it was all on my mind. But on the next week, no signs of my period and my headaches/bloated feeling got worse. I went to the store and bought another test. I did it the next morning and I got a faint positive line (Target test, blue dye). I called my husband-to-be and told him. Later that day, we took another one together and it was negative. That upset me a lot, so I took another one the next morning. Negative. (The last one I took was yesterday).
I really don't know what to think. I'm going to call my doctor today and get a blood test done!
Hope to get some answers soon
