I don't understand why anyone asks that question.
How the hell would we know if you are or not?



Go buy more tests, if they don't work or give you mixed answers, go get a blood test. -___-

Any kind of positive is a positive

I mean, clearly some of us are working with her and asking her questions and giving her advice.

Even if she took a test there is more to it. You can easily get a false positive on a blue dye or an evap if you read the test too late or it could be a chemical if she got a positive then all negative.



Clearly she should test again.

Obviously there WAS advice and info that was able to be given to her if she answered the right questions. Ten people saying "if you had sex you could be pregnant" didn't help her much... Yeah it's true, but it doesn't help and honestly for someone with an IUD this is a very scary time especially if it's still in place and since the doc can't see her til the 22nd I'm sure she's anxious for answers any way she can get them.

Quoting .[Pinkster].:" Any kind of positive is a positive"


Absolutely NOT true. There are a ton of ways to get a "false positive" including shitty blue dye tests, evaps, and user error during the testing process. A faint test should especially be questioned because it could be an evap or the antibody strip.

That's why we ask for a pic.

I'm guessing that's an old due date from a previous pregnancy that she didn't take down because if she was just finding out she's pregnant she'd be due end of Oct or probably early Nov.

No, that's what I thought at first too, but I'm in Line Spotters and everyone getting BFPs in there is due in November, so I knew that was wrong.

Yes that's from a previous pregnancy. And yes I know you can get pregnant with an iud I'm not an idiot I should of worded my subject differently. What I want t know is if this has happened to anyone else and what the outcome was.

Yeah I get it. I get why people respond like that, but sometimes the person clearly needs help/advice. Not everyone knows about pregnancy tests etc. Some people on this site aren't the "sharpest tool in the shed" if you KWIM? They need help from SOMEONE. (Not to say you're dumb OP) Just saying, sometimes it's nice to be helpful too.

If you had a positive on a pink dye within the time limit that even your husband was able to see....you're probably pregnant. Still think you should retest to confirm, but chances are it was a true positive and you're pregnant.

What happens next depends on a few things like if your IUD is still in place or not, how far along you are, and what your doc feels is the next best step.

Can you still feel your strings?

If your IUD has fallen out, then great because it poses no risk to the pregnancy. If it's still in place and you're early enough in pregnancy they MAY try to remove it, but that's not typical. Usually they will leave it in place which could cause some problems like miscarriage or injuries to the baby at some point.

If you get another positive you need to call your doc and see if they can see you sooner. Do they know you have an IUD?
