I am new to this site. I am not looking for medical advice I just needed someone to tell me their ideas or opinions. I started a normal period on 5/5/09. I also really messed up my BCP for that week and the following week. On 5/17 I called my doctor and she said that I should stop taking them and wait until I started. On 5/20, I didn't feel like my self so I went to her and told her my symptoms she did a blood and pap on me. The blood test came back on 5/21 negative. That same day I had some very strange spotting(it was pink and extremely thick). The next day it was red/brown and them brown/black for the next 2 days. On 5/31 I took a pregnancy test and it came back positive but it took an hour for the positive to show up. On 6/1 I went to my doctor and showed her and she did a urine test. That came back negative. She doesn't know what is going on. So she told me to wait until the end of June to see if I get my period. I was suppose to start on 6/2. I have a calendar that I use to calculate my periods. Anyway, does someone have an idea or a similiar thing so that I can at least don't feel like I am in this alone or that I am crazy. I have two other children so I wouldn't mind being pregnant but I can't talk to my husband because he thinks I am worried about nothing.

With most pregnancy tests, the instructions will tell you a time limit in which your results will be accurate. The result you get at the time they say to look at the result is the one to trust, not what might show up later, as many tests are only accurate for a certain window of time.

The spotting was likely from messing up your BCPs, as might have been you feeling ooky. Are you and your husband also up-to-date with (if you're monogamous, yearly is fine) STI screenings, too?
