I took a pregnany test last night. My fiance and I don’t have sex yet but when we fool around he has had seaman close to me. I know it’s unlikely, but I was feeling a lot of the symptoms. Anyway, I took a pregnany test last night. it turned negative. But when I looked at it this morning, it was positive. what should i do??

to be sure maybe take one more, and then make a dr. appt immediately. Just my advice.

I don’t think they are acurate past the 5 minutes or whatever it tells you to wait. Maybe wait a few days and take another test.

i would suggest taking another test ASAP as well as consulting your fiance. it seems really unlikely that you are pregnant if you haven’t had sex. it’s most likely a false positive. that said, have you talked about children and when/if you might want them?

I would make sure to go to a doctor to be sure. I’m not sure how effective the at home ones are compared to the doctor visits.

Oh and I misread before. I don’t think that it can change from negative to positive. It is probably because you left it out overnight and isn’t a real positive. It is really unlikely to get pregnant if you haven’t had sex.

What kind of test did you take? One with the 2 pink lines, or the digital one that says “pregnant” or “not pregnant” ..? If you took one with the lines and another line appeared overnight, it most likely means you’re not pregnant. There was a thread about that some time ago with photos. (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/am-i-pregnant-help)
Also, if you haven’t had vaginal sex then you’re most likely not pregnant. The likelihood of pregnancy depends on what sort of fooling around you did. If you’re still concerned, buy a digital test (the words “not pregnant” are very comforting …) and take it in the morning, during your first #1, when your urine is most concentrated.

Are you expecting your period soon? A lot of period symptoms are similar to pregnancy symptoms. There have been months where I felt nauseous and my breasts were very swollen/sore, but it was just normal hormone fluxes. I’d try not to worry about it, and definitely take another test.

Pregnancy tests are not accurate after 10 minutes. Try another

Sweety, first just relax. Anxiety can cause a lot of the “symptoms” you are having (I went through the same thing!).
Next, I think Daisy is right, the results don’t last on the stick very long. I don’t know if it’s 5 minute or 5 hours but there is a reason you wait only 2 minutes for the results as the box states.
As soon as you can, take another test. But I promise, anxiety makes CRAZY things happen and I am sure it’s making things worse. Just breathe deep and relax and take a test.

Pregnancy tests all turn positive when you leave them. Read it when the instructions say to do so – that’s when. If you’re fooling around and concerned about pregnancy, use a condom!

I hate to be the bearer of possibly bad news, but it IS possible to have no physical intercourse and still get pregnant. I don’t want to go into detail here due to this being such a public arena, but I will PM you details on why I say that if you want. The short explanation is that the fluid that is released early during foreplay holds the most semen, and all they need is physical transfer onto the woman close to the opening – no physical penetration is necessary for pregnancy to occur if the right conditions are met. I can honestly say I know a person who got pregnant while being a “virgin” because of that exact situation.
Either way, I would make sure that you re-take the pregnacy test as instructed on the package. As others mentioned earlier, it is NOT accurate after the first 3 minutes, so you need to evaluate it within those three minutes. Remember it cannot be accurate unless it’s 4 days or later before your missed period when you use a urine test. As the package says, it is MOST accurate in the early AM urine because of the concentration of the hormone overnight.
If you really want to be sure, make an appointment with your OB/Gyn ASAP and get it straightened out.

thank you all very much.
i took another one now and it says negative. That just really freaked me out this morning. And i just got on Yaz about six months ago, first time on BC. getting married very soon. And then i didn’t get my period during the placebo pills and am spotting now. It really frightened me. And @champagne wishes, i am filled with anxiety lately… i guess due to the wedding being so soon.
thanks to everyone who helped. i think i may go to the doctor just to make sure.

If you’re on birth control, it’s unlikely that you’re pregnant. Just to be sure, go to the doctor. Remember though, that stress wreaks havoc on your cycle. I’ve missed my period when under stress – which then adds the stress of thinking I might be pregnant, oy!

Yaz messed up my cycle… is was too much hormone for me… so maybe it’s just not the right pill for you. And with your wedding quickly approaching, I bet stress is making it all worse. If you are still worried, take a test one more time in a few days. Can’t hurt and will give you even more peace of mind!!!
Good luck with your wedding 🙂
