  • I would go get a blood test because those are more accurate.

  • Well, most say if it shows up + then - there may have been a pregnancy.. But with my 1st i got like 2 positives and 3 negatives.. Just wait and check again in a week or 2. :o) Good luck and God bless!

  • You may have still had some hormones left in due to the miscarriage, if you had a blood test at the doctor, then I would go with that, so sorry for your loss.

  • It couldn't hurt to get a blood test but you might get a digital one for home and see how that comes out. As someone else said though your hormone levels might not be back to normal after your miscarriage and you might get a positive for that reason. It is hard to tell.

  • False positives are VERY rare. Wait 72 hours and take a pink dye tests. If it is positive, get a blood test.

    You could have gotten a negative at the doctor because it wasnt FMU and therefore not the most concentrated hormone level in the urine, it was so light they counted it as a negative, or you used a more sensative test at home.

    Either way waiting for the hormones to double which happens every 48 to 72 hours will give you a more accurate result on a test.

    I lost a baby in January so I know what you are going through. I am now 15 weeks with a baby I concieved 8 weeks after my loss.

    Good Luck to You!!
