Customer Question

I did a home pregnancy test which showed that I was pregnant, and then went to the dr. He repeated the test and it came out negative. He has sent me for a blood test but I was so sure I was pregnant, waiting for the results is stressful, can you tell me what might be happening?

Hello,
Do another home pregnancy test from a different brand, this will put your mind at ease.

Does it mean I am not pregnant?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 8 years ago.
Hello,
There are different pregnancy tests on the market - so can detect a HCG level as low as 10, some can detect a HCG level as low as 25 - so your doctor might be using the 25 test and you used the 10 test.
