Yes, I have a POAS addiction! Just for fun, I thought I'd try an IC HPT while I did another OPK, and they both came out POSITIVE! I'm sure this is a fluke due to the soy, but man, it made my heart skip a beat when I saw it. Here's a picture of the HPT (blue handle) & the OPK (green handle), test lines are on the left again: http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f1...y/IMG_2205.jpg . There's no way I can be pregnant, right? My temps plummeted, I had AF!

I tried doing a quick Google search on it, but couldn't find anything.

Soy isoflavones do NOT mimmic hcg.

Yes, you can still be pregnant... get a better test and double check because the ONLY reason you should ever get a false positive pregnancy test is if you have an hcg shot or something else containing hcg. Soy isoflavones do not.

Tons of ladies in my DDC had what was as heavy as AF bleeding but are now 14-20 weeks along and perfectly fine!

Also, a dear friend of mine should still be pregnant if she went by what she believed was her LMP... but she had a healthy baby boy at 40 weeks.... back in February!





ETA - unless there is any chance the hpt touched the opk... because that can also cause a false positive but I dont think that would be THAT dark if that were how it happened.

35. Can I get a false positive if my pregnancy test touches my ovulation test? Yes! Ovulation predictor tests (OPK's) contain different antibodies than pregnancy tests (HPT's.) If you place a wet pregnancy test too close to an OPK (so that they're touching) the OPK can actually contaminate the pregnancy test and cause 2 lines to appear, even if there is no pregnancy hormone (hCG) in the urine. Um, ask me how I know this . . . If you are a weirdo like me and you like to take HPT's and OPK's at the same time for whatever reason, make sure they are placed where they cannot touch one another!

I have a FRER pink wrapper here I've been saving, that should be OK to try? I had a dream last night that I got a + on a FRER!

They might have touched briefly, not sure. I can surely try again, as I have more.

It's still quite early yet... I don't think soy could cause a problem?? It will be ok... that's what I had to keep telling myself in the very beginning of this pregnancy.

Did something similar happen to you, or were you just really, really cautious & worried about it?

Thanks Qbear'smama! You sure nailed it, didn't ya !

How could this happen if my temps dropped & I had AF? I'm really worrying now.

Of course, now I feel like I'm cramping. Could be from excitement too.

I last took a HPT on March 29th, 2 days before I started the supposedly-AF, and that was 10 days ago. So, I'm roughly 21DPO today.

You didnt have AF. Its that simple.

You had pregnancy bleeding... maybe breakthrough bleeding, maybe a subchorionic hematoma. More likely breakthrough bleeding. It can be heavy for some women.

I suggest not taking the soy anymore. It probably didnt do anything to ya but its best to not keep it up.

Call to get into your doctor asap just to make sure everything is fine, and congrats!



Cramping is normal in early pregnancy... and who knows what caused your temp drop, but those lines are undeniable and they wouldnt be that dark this long after bleeding if that was a chemical pregnancy from last month.

I miscarried 6 weeks prior to conceiving this one... so I was a little bit of a nervous wreck the first few weeks. I go through phases where I'm good and things are great and then I worry. So my mantra really has been It will all be ok. Everything will work out. What's to be will be. etc etc.

Thanks Mae! I called & left a message for the Dr. I'm not taking the soy anymore, I finished it 2 days ago. I hope I can get in tomorrow for a blood test.

I think around 12/09/2010 - that what FF gave me last month. I'm going to guess around 12/18/2010 though.
