Confused about Pregnancy Tests?

Okay here's my delimia, I took two pregnancy tests last week and they were very very faintly postive, so I went to the store today and got another one just to recheck, before I call the doctor tomorrow and it was negative.
Just a little info, my last period was on October 2nd, I ovulated around October 15th, and I have 22-24 day cycle and so I'm obviously late, but I'm confused about the tests. Any help??

  • There is pretty much no such thing as a false positive. Some tests are more sensitive than others. Go to the doctor anyway, and check out

  • were they different brands? Some brands can detect earlier than others. How soon did you get your faint lines? If you got them after 10 minutes they could be evaporation lines. Worst case would be that your hormone level have dropped, like when the embryo dies. Sometimes you can even reabsorb the embryo without miscarrying. You should call for a blood test to make sure.

  • Maybe try a digital test that spells out PREGNANT or NOT PREGNANT
