seeking immediate advice/opinions on hpt's

i think i may be pregnant, im having symptoms and if i were, i would be about 10 weeks (last intercourse was 2 months ago, but it was protected sex) i had one period a few days after my last intercourse (end of september), then another in october but it was very shorter than usual, but i still got it on the date it was supposed to arrive. i started birth control pill about 3 weeks ago, and i know what all the side effects of the pill are and does and saturday i was supposed to get my period, i bled a little bit but not much. and last night, i took a hpt from the dollar tree, it was positive. Then i took one today around 2pm, walgreens brand, and it was negative, then i had some bleeding again. ive heard there are no such things as false positives,which seems true, but im confused.

my questions are: if i were 10 weeks, would it still matter what time of the day i took the test? i understand taking it in the morning has the best results, but if i were 10 weeks, im sure by now my urine has plenty of HGC for the test to pick up with any sample. i could be wrong though. Which test should i trust?

Hi Anonymous,

If you have tested for pregnancy and got a positive result, please schedule an appointment with your OB/GYN to verify whether you are pregnant. Please do not wait any longer-- if in fact you are pregnant, then you need prenatal care.

There are false positives in pregnancy tests, though not too common. Please see your doctor asap and keep us posted. In the meantime, stop your birth control pills and take a prenatal vitamin daily for precautions.
