    Question Positive at home but Negative at doctors

    Hi
    Im a little confused I took 2 hpts yesterday morning at 5.30 and at 8.30 both are showing a very clear positive result. I went to the gp yesterday afternoon and they marked me as a negative even after a very faint line appeared on the result I was told it was not a strong enough or clear enough result to confirm pregnancy. Im off for a blood test today won't get my results until Monday and I was just wondering if this had happened to anyone else and what your final response was.

    Thanks

    What brand test did you use at home? If it was a first response or a 'good brand' like that generally they are alot more sensative then the gps test (they normally use cheap crappy ones).

    I've never had a gp do a test after getting pos. test at home, always say that my test would be reliable then send me straight for bloods.

    Id try to ignore the docs test

    Yep, I have heard the First Response Early Response (and other good quality HPT's) are more sensitive than the ones the Dr's offices use. My Dr has never done a test of his own, he has said if you get a positive on a HPT it's conclusive.

    I would think congrats are in order!! Good luck with the bloods

    This happened to me with 2 pregnancies.

    I was told by a MW that the test the doctors use are not a sensitive as FRER or similar because they buy generic tests (same as IC's really)

    Good luck, it sounds very positive to me.

    As all of the above....also you used FMU and they tested you in the arvo so makes sense that it may not have been as strong as yours. Besides the GPs have never tested me....they just take my word for it and have told me before that their tests arent as good as the ones like First Response, etc.

    Congrats!

    What everybody else said and the fact that you said there was a faint line on the docs test...a line is a line! Doesnt have to be a 'strong' line to be positive, his were probably not as sensitive. Congrats
