So I am 10dpo and I got my BFP this morning. Well I went to see my doctor in the afternoon to confirm and he told me that my results came back questionable. I was told to retest in another week. Has this ever happened to anybody and everything came out ok?
With my first pregnancy, the first test at the doctor's came back "inconclusive". I'd taken a positive home test earlier that day. This was right at the time my period was due, so I chalked it up to FMU vs later in the day.
I took another test at the Dr's a few days (a week? something like that) later. They called me up that evening and told me that they were sorry, and that the tests had been spilled and I'd need to do another. They expedited that test, and it was positive.
Then I got a call a few days later saying that my results were inconclusive, which left me wondering if "inconclusive" really means "Oops, we screwed up".
In any case, the "inconclusive" baby is turning 9 next week, so obviously things worked out ok :)

It is basically impossible to get a false positive with a home pregnancy test. If you get a positive reading, you have HCG in your urine. And there aren't too many ways other than pregnancy for that to happen...
Seriously? I thought they were pretty fool proof! When I did some research on it, everything I read said that the home pregnancy tests look for a hormone that we only have in our system if we're preggo... Should I be weary of my results?
My understanding is that a positive is a positive. You can have a chemical pregnancy, where the pregnancy essentially fails before it even really begins. In that case, you might easily get a positive on a home pregnancy test and by the time you show up at the doc, get a negative blood test. But again, I've always understood that false positives on HPT are very rare. False negatives, especially early on, are relatively common.

I had a negative test at the doctor a few days after testing positively at home on three separate tests. My urine was too diluted (it was in the afternoon by that time) for the test to pick up the hcG. A blood test the next day confirmed that I was pregnant, though it was in the very early days. For peace of mind, I would get some cheap $1 tests from Dollar Tree or somewhere like that and test every few days until you go back to the doctor and get a positive test. Good luck, and congratulations!
