I ovulated on March 30th, and had unprotected sex that day. My period is due in around six days. My period is very unpredictable, but I took an early pregnancy test on Thursday, and it said pregnant. Then, I bought a ClearBlue early pregnancy test, and it said not pregnant. I'm getting dizzy spells when I stand up, and I'm bloated. The home pregnancy test that said positive was a cheap one, can I still trust it?

Answer

Your symptoms certainly sound like early pregnancy, and it's definitely not unheard of to get a positive on one pregnancy test and a negative on another because of variables like what time of day you took it, how sensitive the test is, etc.

If the first one you took was clearly positive then I would ignore the ClearBlue and try a different brand to see what it says. I've encountered false positives on cheap tests before, but they were light. If the second line was very bright, then I would consider that negative.

So, if you haven't already, go out and grab another pregnancy test (not ClearBlue) and try again now that your period is late.
