I am 3 days late, no period symptoms. I took a test this morning & it was positive. Dh & DTD last night without potection, but I peed right after & actually woke up twice last night to pee. I'm just in disbelief I guess, but sperm couldn't have given me a positive, right? Sorry this is such a stupid question! I'm just so excited & don't want to find out it was all for naught.Answer Question

a test detects HCG the pregnancy hormone.Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone produced in pregnancy that is made by the developing embryo soon after conception and later by the syncytiotrophoblast (part of the placenta). Its role is to prevent the disintegration of the corpus luteum of the ovary and thereby maintain progesterone production that is critical for a pregnancy in humans.
Sperm isn't the same thing as HCG and false positives are very rare. Sounds like you're pregnant!
