Does clomid give a false positive?
hb0528 posted:
Has this happened to anyone?? I started my 3rd round of clomid thinking AF had arrived (7 days early), but AF was very light and short (unusual for me). I took a pregnancy test on day 3 of taking the clomid and got a positive. Does clomid give a false positive or am I pregnant? Has this happened to anyone? Did you end up pregnant or was it the clomid?
mrs62610 responded:
Clomid does not cause false positive pregnancy tests. I would call your dr and tell them what happened!

sproutkm responded:
not it should be sometimes if you got a shot of HCG or something to help ovulate that could give you a false positive
ntgps responded:
I am not sure about that but I heard some people saying when you take Clomid you get positive for few days but I never tested on that... the only symptons i have with Clomid is spotting ,cramps and light period.If you are more concerned you can talk to your doc about that. Good luck
hb0528 responded:
Thanks for all the replies. I had my blood drawn yesterday and then will do it again on Wednesday to see if my numbers have doubled. I'll keep everyone posted.

What were your results? Praying for good news
hb0528 replied to jenica1432's response:
I'm pregnant. I didn't have implantation bleeding with my first two children, but did this time around. I thought it was AF, but wasn't. I'm due at the end of September.
