  • Bring in a clear blue and take that at the same time as the other test. Show them both tests and if one is positive, they should accept it. If you are getting positives, you NEED to see a dr.

  • get a blood test, a lot of hospitals will offer them for free or cheap.

  • That doesn't sound right.. Bring an unopened box of the EPT to the clinic with you and take it and show them that it is positive.. maybe they will refer you to a doctor for a blood test.

  • A preg test can only be positive if you have HCG in your system. HCG is made by the embryo or the sac it is in, I forget. College was a long time ago.

  • i had that happen, all of my home tests were positive, when i went to planned parenthood, their test was negative. so i bought more home test as soon as i left there and all were positive. i went to a different dr. and their test was positive! i live in cali. and medi-cal covers all pregnancy related dr. visits. if you KNOW you are prego, then buy some prenatal vitamins and apply for gov. aid. it took about a month to go through for me, but at this stage all the dr.s do anyway is give you some prenatal vitamins. get gov. aid then go to a different dr.

  • oh and yes i would bring in a clear blue or ept unopened box and take it at the same time. that would question their tests and shoud send you to the doc.
