I took a pregnancy test and a faint positive line showed up.

Patient: I took a pregnancy test and a faint positive line showed up but then disappeared am I pregnant

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Usually urine pregnancy test kit can give accurate result one week after the missed period.Before that it can give faint line and sometimes can give false positive results also.So, please wait for one more week and repeat the urine pregnancy test or you can go for blood test for pregnancy, which can give more accurate result than urine test.Take care.
