positive positive negative positive

i have taken a home pregnancy test, because i havent had my period this month, it came out postive, and so i went to the doctor and got a urine test and it came back negative, then i took another pregnancy test and it came back postive, ive taken 3 since the urine test, all postive. is there a chance that the doctor test came back with false results? is a blood test more accurate? gosh i have so many questions how long will it take to know for sure?

Re: positive positive negative positive

if you're really concerned you can go to the MD's and get a quantitative BHCG, which is a blood test ..

best of luck

Re: positive positive negative positive

Yeah go for a blood test. False negatives are far more common than false positives, especially when you've had 4 positives. Good luck!
