Can pregnancy blood test come out as a false positive?
Frog9131 posted:
The end of june I ended up in the hospital because I had kidney stones and was dehydrated. I was told in the hospital that I was pregnant and it was from a blood test they did, the urin came back neg. I ask them to repeat the blood test they did, the HCG levels came back below 0 and I was sent home. The following week I asked my doc to repeat the blood test just to be save and that test the HCG levels came back a 2. Its still neg bc I know the levels have to be higher the a 5 but how can one test be positive? I had another test done and still waiting for the results. Can anyone help??

I don't understand what you are wanting help for? Your blood test came back positive and the urine test came back negative, correct? (As of today) this was over 3 weeks ago, correct? Did you have a missed period? What is the doctor telling you?

my period was due this week and as of today still havent gotten it. my ob doesnt know what is going on.
scperdomo7 replied to Frog9131's response:
You said you asked your doc to repeat the test which is why I assumed you were in contact with your OB - you must be using your regular PCP, right? Have you taken a home pregnancy test? Perhaps you should contact your OB and tell him/her what is going on. They may be able to better assist than your PCP, since they specialize in OB/GYN.
