Thanks for writing to us.
Sometimes, the pregnancy test is late positive, Raised ESR is suggestive of an infection and is not diagnostic of pregnancy. You can check your serum Beta HCG levels to be sure. Else repeat the test after 10 days.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

welcome to health care magic
yes dear sometimes it happens so wait n watch...homeopathic medicines for ESR have good results.
The ESR is a nonspecific indicator of the presence of disease. The ESR rises with the age and anemia. Others are rheumatoid arthritis, renal disease, infection, sarcoidosis or malignancy.
please consult best physician near you.
drink plenty of water.
take care
