How Can Pregnancy Be Confirmed?

I take 10mg of fluoxetine twice a day. Today is my expected period so this morning I took a pregnancy test. It came up negative at first and then bout an hour later it said positive. I took another this afternoon and same thing. If came up negative at first then turned positive. Am I pregnant?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Urine pregnancy test is not hundred percent accurate. It can give false positive results. Do a serum beta HCG assay for confirmation. It is confirmatory test and in case of pregnancy the value will be in thousands.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
