Hcg Pregnancy Test Positive

Hcg Pregnancy Test Positive

What is an hCG urine test?

A human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) urine test is a pregnancy test. A pregnant woman’s placenta produces hCG, also called the pregnancy hormone. If you’re pregnant, the test can usually detect this hormone in your urine about 10 days after your first missed period. This is when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine wall.

During the first 8 to 10 weeks of pregnancy, hCG levels normally increase very rapidly. These levels reach their peak at about the 10th week of pregnancy, and then they gradually decline until delivery.

This type of urine test is commonly sold in kits that you can use at home. It’s often is referred to as a home pregnancy test.

What are the uses of the hCG urine test?

The hCG urine test confirms pregnancy about one to two weeks after your missed period. This is a qualitative test, which means that it will tell you whether or not it detects the hCG hormone in your urine. It’s not intended to reveal specific levels of the hormone. The presence of hCG in your urine is considered a positive sign of pregnancy.

What do the pregnancy test results mean?

It's important to know what a positive or negative result means.

If you get a positive result, you are pregnant. This is true no matter how faint the line, color, or sign is. If you get a positive result,you may want to call your doctor to talk about what comes next.

In very rare cases, you can have a false-positive result. This means you're not pregnant but the test says you are. You could have a false-positive result if blood or protein is present in your urine. And certain drugs, such as tranquilizers, anti-convulsants, or hypnotics, may also cause false-positive results.

If you get a negative result, you are likely not pregnant. However, you may still be pregnant if:

  • The test is past its expiration date.
  • You took the test the wrong way.
  • You tested too soon.
  • Your urine is too diluted because you drank large amounts of fluids right before the test.
  • You are taking certain medications, such as diuretics or antihistamines.

False positive urine tests can also occur under the following circumstances:

Fertility Treatment: If you receive shots of hCG or gonadotropins (for example, Pregnyl, Profasi, Pergonal, APL) for ovulation, it's possible to have a positive urine or blood pregnancy test for two to three weeks after the shot and not be pregnant. A rising blood hCG level usually indicates a pregnancy. This is what happened to Kim Kardashian.

Evaporation Line: If you read the test after the suggested time has passed.

Improper Testing

When taking a home pregnancy test, it is very important to read the directions before testing. Your home pregnancy test instructions will specify when test results should be interpreted and when test results are no longer valid. Some tests will produce a faint positive test result if read after the instructed time. You should use a clock or a watch and record the time you perform the test and read results at the instructed time. Guessing how long it has been since performing the test can lead to false results. Three minutes can seem like twenty minutes and vice versa when you are anxiously waiting to find out if you are expecting.

Chemical Pregnancy: This is a pregnancy that has a positive pregnancy test but the embryo or fetus do not develop.

Miscarriage: Very early pregnancy loss or miscarriage
