Question Pos HPT, Neg Blood test

Has anyone else had this happen??? My husband and I have been TTC for 1 1/2 years with no luck. We've been working with a specialist for about 4 months and are almost done with the diagnostic phase. I have PCO and a unicornuate uterus (1/2 a uterus, 1 tube, 2 ovaries...)and my husband has a low # of normal sperm--sheesh! Anyway, I have very rare AF and my last one was in June. The doctor told us to wait 6-8 weeks, if no AF, call for script for provera to induce AF so they can perform last test before we start fertility treatments. I got my script last week but I felt kind of crampy & puffy, thinking it was impending AF I waited to begin the pills. Last Wednesday, still no AF so I decided to take HPT as a precaution before starting provera. Lo and behold HPT was faint positive! I didn't really believe it, and pitched it--figured I'd try again Friday. Friday AM--another faint positive!! I showed hubby & he saw the line too. I called DR for blood test--waited for results on Monday. (ugh!) Meanwhile I needed to KNOW so I took another test SUnday afternoon--Positive!! But Monday Dr called and said blood test was neg. Much crying ensued--I really thought I was, etc. Nurse seemed stumped (I think she thinks I'm nuts) and said to wait a week, take another HPT and then call. I am impatient, sothis morning I took another HPT--darker (still fainter than the control line). I took one this evening and it is darker still. HELP--I'm going batty here!! I have other symptoms too--tender BB, fatigue, nausea, but I'm so afraid I will have my heart broken again. Has any one else experienced this?

Re: Pos HPT, Neg Blood test

I think that might be the strangest thing I've ever heard of! I am so sorry for this stress on you. Try (yeah right) not to be too stressed as it can hurt the baby if you have too much. Take it easy and go get another blood test. Maybe they had the wrong person's blood, or the test strip was tainted with something. I would say that if you took that many hpt's and they were all +, then you probably are pg. Good luck and keep us posted!!!

Re: Pos HPT, Neg Blood test

Thank you for the advice and support. I will call the DR this morning and schedule another blood test. (I had another +HPT this morning...) I will write as soon as I know anything!

I'm trying to relax...

Re: Pos HPT, Neg Blood test

SOMETIMES the hpt tests are better then the blood test when it is very early in the pregnancy. I had a positive hpt when I was only two weeks pregnant!! The blood test showed negative... they look for a certain level of hcg in your blood and the hpt test can detect lower numbers. The following week, another blood test was done and showed a hcg level of 79... very low, but positive none-the-less. I wish you the best of luck!!

Re: Pos HPT, Neg Blood test

Are you taking any fertility drugs or hormones? Those can give false positives on home pregnancy tests. It is veyr strange, though, to have that many positive test but a negative blood test. Hang in there and see what the results of the next blood test are. I hope it works out the way you want it to!

Re: Pos HPT, Neg Blood test

I'll post the answer as soon as I know. I will have the blood test tomorrow morning and the DR said I should know the results by 5. The (very kindly) nurse put STAT on it--bless her! (This is my regular gyn's office, not the RE.) Apparently my regular Gyn is stumped too. I am cheered up by the response from the other posters, though! My husband is very supportive but he isn't a woman and I don't think he can fully understand what this feels like, you know? Thank you for your prayers, I will post as soon as I have any answers.


What will be is what is meant to be...

Re: Pos HPT, Neg Blood test

If there's one thing I'm trying to learn from all of this it's to trust my intiution. The RE's office gave me the negative result on Monday and told me to take another HPT and it would be neg. Then I could start the provera. The next day I had two very positive results and the nurse at the RE's office brushed me off--I know they must deal with a lot of people and probably assumed I read the test wrong, looking for a glimmer of hope. Anyway, the day after that (Wed) I had another pos HPT and on my way to work I thought, "Geez, I can't wait until next Monday for another test". (That's what the RE's nurse said.) Then I realized that if I can't advocate for myself, how will I ever advocate for our child? I called my regular OB as soon as I got to work...see above for the rest.

Trust yourselves!! Thank you all for your congrats and good luck on your upcoming test, Nicole!!
