OK my last m/c was 6/05 and we did the IUI and whole route. We kind of gave up "trying" Im 40 ( will be 41) and drving home from dropping of N from preschool it dawned on me AF was due today. I ALWAYS spot a day or 2 prior t starting. I stopped by walmart and picked up a test... equate brand -- its got a + on it. Im in shock .... I dont want to get happy yet because my last m/c was rough..... Suggestions? Call my OB and get a hcg & progesterone level down?

Will anything else make it positve?

Positive is positive. I would call your OB and get in for level testing, especially if you have had problems with progesterone and might need to supplement (I think this is what you were getting at?). There are some false positives but very very few, false negative would be more likely. You could always get another kind of test to be sure.
