  • Blood test is sure-fire!! Lots of room for error with urine tests.

  • truthteller is correct, you can have high levels of HCG and not be pregnant but blood test are always accurate

  • I don't know why there would be a difference but the Blood Test is the one to go by.

  • If you went to earlier the blood test would come out positive before the pee test would. Maybe your late for another reason. You can wait another week or so and retest

  • There are many reasons for you to miss a period including rapid weight-loss /weight-gain, sickness and stress!

  • i've been late before, flipped out that i could be pregnant. although my tests were negative..but when i actually thought about it, i was alot more stressed at the time, which is why i was late. it is possible to get a false positive. some don't think so, but i've known people to get it.

  • I mean there could have been a lab error for one of the tests too.

    Did you try taking a home test ?

    I know once I was told I was pregnant on accident through lab error.
