Could I be pregnant?

I was due to have my period on July 30th. I had a tubal ligation in 2010 after I had my 5th baby, during my c-section. Is it possible that I may be pregnant? I took 3 home pregnancy tests, one of which said results in as little as 2-10 minutes. I waited 3 minutes and the test was negative, so I continued doing what it was I was doing to pass time and checked it again and it was a faint positive however the line was there. That night I purchased 2 digital test, took one right away and got a negative result and did the next one the following morning during my first urination, it was negative as well. Could the first test that was positive just be wrong or am I actually pregnant. I have bloating pains off and on, cramping that comes and goes as if my period could start any second at times but it don't, painful breasts, and heartburn galore at times. What am I to think at this point? I am confused!!!!

Hello bc12345,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern.
I can appreciate how you must be feeling right now.

Disregard the faint positive line which you saw on the first test. Go with the first negative result. Waiting give you an inaccurate result.

The most accurate result was from the third test which you took using your first urine of the day.

Since the results were all negative, you can assume that you are not pregnant.

For peace of mind and your sanity, please contact your gynecologist, who can order blood tests to check hormone levels. Since the menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of four hormones, estrogen and progesterone, follicle stimulating hormone, and luteinizing hormone, any imbalance will cause a change. Your doctor may choose to check your thyroid function levels.

Please keep us updated.
