I am 15 days late, I did a pregnancy test at 13 days late and got a faint second line. My doctor's office said that there are no false positives, so they scheduled me for a blood test. I just got the results today and they were negative. I don't understand, and my doctor's office is apparently too busy to help me understand.
Does anybody know why this would happen?

I'm not sure why this would happen. The only thing I can suggest is do one more home preg test to see if you get a positve result again and if so, ask that your doctor do another blood test (who knows if the lab or doctor's office made a mistake or gave you the wrong results).....you'll never know unless you ask them to do another test or ask them to explain to you how this could happen.

Good Luck!

Maybe if you recently had a baby the HCG is still in your system, or I have heard that certain medications can cause a false positive. I would repeat the test again in a week. If it is still positive, have another blood test. Good luck!

Hi there. I have only once had a blood test that showed up neg. when a home pg test was postive. And that was when I had what was like a molor pregnancy. That ended at 7wks. Maybe you hgc (?) levels arent high enough yet if you ovulated later in your cycle or if u are pg & the egg didnt implant correctly than you will end up having your AF. It could be any number of reasons, maybe a fautly hpt. If I was you and in a week or two still haven't got AF then I would test again either at home or thr your doctor. All the best & keep me posted.
