Hi
Welcome to HealthareMagic.

There are chances of home pregnancy test being positive even when you re not pregnant.It could be due to improper testing or medications or hormonal imbalance.

Take care.

Dear thanks for your query.Yes, at times false positive result can come.The possible reasons could some hormonal tablets taken,test not done properly,test kit damaged etc.But in the event of missed period with positive test you need to be careful.Buy and take care.

Hello Dr. Rynne, about 2 weeks ago I took a home pregnancy test and came up as positive. I went to the urgent care the next day to take a urine and blood pregnancy test from a Dr. and it came back as negative?! They told me I wasn t pregnant but I am about 98% sure that I am pregnant, the other 2% is because I want to get a positive result from a professional. My period is about 9 days late, my breasts are super sore and sensitive, I have to pee all the time, and feel super nauseous but have yet to actually throw up. Could my hormone levels be too low to actually come back as positive.

How likely would it be that I received a false positive?

My boyfriend is 25 years old and I have been with him for about 7 months. And whenever we have sex, very frequently it seems like he will go limp during the middle of intercourse. And there are times where it seems like we go a month without sexual intercourse. Another thing that seems to grasp my attention is that there will be random times that he gets hard, however normal conventional ways of stimulating him doesn't work. Could this be a sign of some sort of hormonal imbalance or some sort of problem with his heart?

Hi, I am 34 years old and have 3 kids. Since my youngest, my 3 year old was born I have been losing hair. But recently it is too much and my hair is so thin now and brittle. I checked my thyroid and its 4.17. Is that too high or could it be a hormonal imbalance?

I missed the first 4 pills of my new pack waiting for them in the mail. Finally starting the pack on thursday.i have now been on the BC for 2 weeks. Since then I have had tender nipples and breast, little twinges and crampy feelings in lower abdomin. I have egg white film like discharge that has no odor. Other than early pregnancy, could I have a hormonal imbalance from missing those 4 pills or could it be bacterial vaginosis or what do u think most likely. I have taken several pregnancy tests but all have been negative I think it is too early. Help!!!
