  • contact your doctor for the +. the test detected pregnancy hormones which means a sperm fertilized an egg, the embryo may not have attached to the wall of your uterus (chemical pregnancy) but better safe than sorry, give doctor a call.

  • Where the two test taken at different times of day?? There may not be enough pregnancy hormone in your system later in the day. Take another test as soon as you get up in the morning. The results of that will likely be more dependable then test taken at other times throughout the day. I would recommend that you go ahead and schedule an appt though, better safe then sorry. It is possible to get false negative, but not a false positive... unless of course you read the test after the specified time limit. I personally prefer digital test because there is no question about what the test is telling you.

    Good luck!! Feel free to message me if you need to talk or have any more questions. Oh, and yes, I have heard of people getting preggers while having an IUD. No BC is 100%.
