POF/positive pregnancy tests

I was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure over a years ago, and I am taking Premphase to have a monthly cycle. Well, I had a period in may, not one in June, light spotting in July, and no cycle in august. I was getting concerned this past week when I started to feel sick in the mornings and this Friday even vomited. I decided to take two pregnancy tests on Friday in the morning and they came out positive. I took another one in the afternoon today, and it also came out positive. Could I really be pregnant or could it be my medicine messing with my body? I am going to make a Dr's appt on Monday, but I need some peace of mind for now. Thank you so much in advance!

Update: I couldn't go to the dr office on Monday beCause they were close and I forgot,so I went to our linty health dept and thu took a urine test and it came back positive. I was surprised to find that they didn't do a blood test. It's not that I do not want to be pregnant because I am thrilled, but I am so worried about a false positive Crazy thinking? I know! When the nurse went to calculate my due date, I told her about my cycles( as I listed above) and she went by my last period being in may. She didn't know how the medicine could affect my cycles, she had never heard of it before. Would she be correct at going by that month to establish a due date or should it really be by the July one? I know I have to talk to my dr (I have to get Medicaid first and wait to be approved before I het to see him at his office because I do not have insurance) first but I just needed more insight! Thank you so mich for taking the tome to read this and responding.

Hi Sbn,
I am glad to hear that you are going to your doctor on Monday. As far as having two pregnancy tests, those results are most likely accurate (by about 99%...it is not 100%)...and this sounds like you were not wanting to hear this type of result.

The home pregnancy tests detects the "pregnancy hormone" hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), which is produced by our bodies during pregnancy. The medicine you are taking is a type of estrogen, which would most likely not effect the pregnancy test. However, you can confirm all of this with your doctor tomorrow.

Good luck, and please let us know if you need any additional information.
