Jahann Brown Stewart knows her husband, Charlie, all too well. When she took a pregnancy test that confirmed she was pregnant with their fourth child, she
Many people assume that a pregnancy test can only be positive if the person taking it is legitimately expecting a baby. As true as this belief may be, other ways exist for how to make a pregnancy test positive, at least at first glance. Many people are intrigued by these bypass methods for a variety of reasons. They may want to play a prank or genuinely want to make someone believe that they are in fact pregnant. Regardless of your own reasoning, you can make a pregnancy test look positive by following a few simple strategies.
One of the easiest ways to make a pregnancy test look positive is by manually manipulating it. Pregnancy test strips are easy to open. In fact, they simply snap apart without the entire strip breaking or cracking. You can wet the test strip and then take apart the actual strip to draw a plus sign inside the indicator window. Rather than just draw the positive sign on the window itself, you should draw it on a piece of sticky tape that you can lay over the test strip material to make it look more realistic. After you draw and stick on the positive sign, you can put the strip back together and fool the person for whom the test is intended.
If you plan to draw the positive sign, you should check the test kit box to find out what a positive test is supposed to look like. You also should check to see in what color you should draw the positive indication. It is important that you take your time and perhaps practice drawing the positive indication a few times before actually drawing it onto the sticky tape. This practice will ensure that the test looks more legitimate and that the person whom you are trying to fool will have no reason to doubt the test’s outcome. You also should make sure that the positive sign aligns perfectly with the indicator window so that the test does not look manipulated.
Make A Pregnancy Test Positive Without Being Pregnant
Another way to manipulate a pregnancy test involves using a popular soft drink for this purpose. Some women say that drinking Dr. Pepper can cause your urine to alter enough in quality and chemical makeup to make a pregnancy test turn positive. Other people say that you can drop the soft drink directly onto the test strip itself to turn the test positive, even if you are not genuinely pregnant. These people who swear by this method say to use the soft drink when it is room temperature rather than cold.
Other women have reported having luck with turning a pregnancy test positive by using baking soda. Baking soda is a highly volatile substance that is valued for its ability to remove stains, change the chemical compositions of recipes, and other purposes. Some women say that you can use baking soda by applying it to a test strip to turn the test positive. For all intents and purposes, this manipulation could work best if you make the soda into a paste or mix it into water rather than applying it in powder form.
Of course, with the advent of the Internet, women have also found that they can make big money by selling their positive pregnancy tests on craigslist. You can search forums online to find such tests for sale. Pregnant women take the tests and then mail them to you. They often charge premium prices, and you also must trust that these women will actually mail an intact, positive test to you. Nonetheless, this method of making a test positive has proved popular with many people who want to dupe others for whatever reason.
Make A Home Pregnancy Test Say Positive
People have a variety of reasons for why they want to make a pregnancy test look positive. Some of the more popular reasons include trying to get their romantic partners to stay in a relationship with them. Others want to manipulate pregnancy tests just for fun and to dupe their loved ones and friends. Dozens of other reasons exist, some harmless and some perhaps rather ill-advised. Nonetheless, valid ways do exist to make pregnancy tests look positive even if you are really not expecting at all.
It is important that you understand the ramifications for altering a pregnancy test if you want to use any of these methods. If you are just having fun and playing a prank on a friend or loved one, you more than likely will not suffer any real consequences, other than your loved ones and friends being momentarily confused or perhaps even a little angry at you. If you are using these methods to commit fraud, such as to benefit financially by lying to someone about being pregnant, it is a very real possibility that you could be fined and even jailed. You would be well advised to think about the consequences for your long-term future if you decide to go through with these plans.
If you plan on using these false positive tests to keep someone in a relationship with you, you may not succeed when your partner realizes that you are not at all pregnant. That individual may then decide to leave. Further, it puts you in a bind when people realize that your stomach is not growing and that you did not deliver after nine months have passed. Making a pregnancy test look positive is not against the law, and many people choose to alter tests each year. It may be better if you change a negative test into a positive one for entertainment purposes. This decision lets you have your fun without hurting anyone else. It also lets you avoid trouble with the legal system and helps you avoid a fine. Altering pregnancy tests is actually quite easy and does not take a lot of time or talent. These methods are the most common for making pregnancy tests look positive.
I might be pregnant, what’s next?
Early signs that you might be pregnant include spotting, vaginal discharge, cramps, breast changes (sensitivity, soreness, and color changes), and missing your period. Of course, noting the last time you had sex without using contraception properly can also help indicate whether or not you might be pregnant. When these signs occur, most women opt to use a home pregnancy test before starting care with an OB/GYN MD or certified nurse midwife. Pregnancy tests are easy to use and readily available for purchase over the counter at drug stores.
What to do following a Positive Pregnancy Test
If you think you are experiencing any early signs of pregnancy or have tested positive on a home pregnancy test, it is important to consult a physician in order to establish care with a medical professional as early as possible.

Many women suspect that they are pregnant after they are day or two late on their periods. By day 12, they are almost certain that they are pregnant, even if they are not showing any outward symptoms. However, when they take a pregnancy test and it shows a negative result, women may wonder if the test is faulty or if they may have another health condition that is causing their delayed menstrual cycle. Before they panic, they should understand some of the reasons that a pregnancy test may give a negative reading, especially with being 12 days late.
Of course, it may be logical to assume that the test is faulty or has such poor quality that it is not giving an accurate reading. It is true that sub-par tests can be found for sale in supermarkets and discount stores. If a woman suspects that the test is just poorly made or faulty, she should invest in one made by a name brand company and one that perhaps cost a bit more, but also is known to give more accurate results. In fact, these higher quality tests are often used by doctors and health care professionals in their own clinics, which is why many people prefer these brands in the first place.
However, if even a higher brand test is giving a negative result, it could stem from the quality of urine being used. Women are advised to use their first morning urine and not take the test later in the day. A woman’s first morning urine is often more concentrated and does not contain a day’s worth of contaminants like medications and caffeine. Taking the test first thing in the morning often gives the most accurate reading and the fastest results, in fact.
12 Days Late Negative Pregnancy Test No Symptoms?
Anytime a sexually active woman is substantially late in her menstrual cycle, it is reasonable for her to assume that she may be pregnant. Some women by day 12 of being late begin exhibit signs of early pregnancy, such as having to use the bathroom more often, feeling fatigued by midday, and heaviness or soreness in her breasts. Some women also develop noticeable veins in their chests and abdomens, tell-tale signs that they are pregnant. However, some women display no signs of early pregnancy and instead feel as fit as ever. These women can be confused when they take a test and it gives a negative reading.
In fact, by day 12 of an early pregnancy, a woman is considered to be close to four weeks pregnant. An ultrasound can typically pick up on the developing baby’s heartbeat and may show a faint outline of the fetus. With that, it would be reasonable to assume that a simple over-the-counter test would give a positive result. However, some tests are compromised by factors like tainted urine, medications, and other chemical components. If a woman has been taking fertility pills, for example, the test may be unable to detect the needed level of hCG in her urine to give an accurate reading.
Likewise, if a woman has been using illegal drugs like marijuana or cocaine, the test may be compromised by the presence of these chemicals in her urine. Ideally, women should test their urine after they have abstained from taking medications or drinking caffeine products for at least 12 hours. The quality of urine will be better and the test will be able to detect if any hCG, the hormone produced by the body during early to mid-pregnancy, is present, indicating that the woman is indeed pregnant.
12 Days Late Negative Pregnancy Test Spotting?
When women suspect that they may be pregnant, they may be alarmed when they begin spotting around day 12 of their missed periods. In fact, spotting in early pregnancy is quite common. It usually occurs because of the embryo attaching itself to the uterine wall. However, sometimes spotting occurs because of an impending miscarriage or because a woman has injured herself. If a woman is getting a negative test result each time she takes a pregnancy test around day 12, the spotting may be happening because her period is about to start.
In fact, a number of factors can cause a period to be delayed to this extent. Being seriously ill with infections like the flu, pneumonia, or even severe gastroenteritis can cause a woman to miss her normal menstrual cycle start date. Her body’s systems have been thrown off because of the illness, and all of her body’s energy has been focused on helping her recover from whatever disease with which she was afflicted. After her body recuperates, it then resumes its normal systems, including her menstrual cycle. The spotting could be a sign that her menstrual cycle is about to begin.
If a woman has not been sick, yet is 12 days late and spotting, she could be in the earliest stages of pregnancy. It may be that her pregnancy is just now attaching itself to the uterine wall or that the pregnancy is about to miscarry. Many women who are late and begin spotting in early pregnancy actually do not realize that they were ever pregnant. They dismiss the spotting as a delayed period. However, in reality the spotting is the start of a miscarriage that more than likely will be followed by painful cramping and heavy flow. Doctors admit that a large percentage of pregnancies terminate in such a manner.
It’s happened to so many of us – particularly those of us addicted to early pregnancy testing: you take a pregnancy test, follow the instructions to a “t”, and at the end of the interpretation period, there’s a faint line on the pregnancy test where the test line would appear. What does it mean? Am I pregnant? Or am I simply seeing things…?
By the letter of the law, ANY test line that’s visible on a pregnancy test – even a faint one – indicates a positive result. (This is often confusing for those of us who take ovulation tests, as they work in a completely different manner. With ovulation tests, you must compare the intensity of the test line to the intensity of the control line. Only when the test line matches or exceeds the intensity of the control is it considered to be a positive result.) This concept is an important one, and bears repeating: ANY test line that appears within the interpretation time period (assuming proper testing protocol was observed) should be considered a positive result and an indication of pregnancy.
So what causes a faint line on a pregnancy test to appear? Why don’t test manufacturers simply calibrate pregnancy tests such that a positive is always bold and easy to discern? Wouldn’t that make our lives so much easier?

The reason you would see a faint line on a pregnancy test is that the hcg level is probably very close to the sensitivity threshold of the test. For example, if you dip a pregnancy test that is sensitive to 20 miu/ml hcg in a sample of urine containing precisely 20 miu/ml hcg, the test manufacturer is expecting this test to yield a positive result, albeit very likely a faint one. In the interest of avoiding false positive results (as we all have baseline hcg in our urine, even in our non-pregnant state), the test manufacturer wants a 19 miu/ml hcg level to yield a negative result with no test line visible. Such is the tightrope the test manufacturer must walk – very small differences in hcg quantities must yield completely different results.
Even when we understand the reason for a faint line, it doesn’t prevent us from wanting to see a more dramatic, conclusive result. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to satiate your need to see the elusive “BFP” – big fat positive.
The simplest strategy is to simply wait another day or two. HCG levels in early pregnancy rise exponentially, and you will likely see a faint positive grow bolder in a matter of days. In the photos below, notice how the test line changes from a very faint line to a much darker line in a matter of just a few days!
Another arrow in the quiver of the early pregnancy tester is first morning urine. First morning urine is the term used to describe your first urination of the day, which tends to be more concentrated (think yellow) than the urine produced later in the day after you’ve consumed liquids. When testing early, this more concentrated sample may mean the difference between a faint positive and a negative result.
Here’s another look at a real-life sample of a faint line on a pregnancy test indicating a positive result. The following is an image submitted by an actual customer of Early-Pregnancy-Tests.com, along with her comments. (Note that blood hcg levels and urine based levels are an “apple/orange” comparison; blood levels of hcg will always be exponentially higher than urine levels.)
“We just got our BFP and couldn’t be happier! We heard about your site and your products and started ordering from you about three months ago. We purchased the tests and the ovulation test strips and were blessed to get a POSITIVE on the third month! We saw a faint line on 11 DPO, and it took the complete 5 minutes to process. Today is day 15 DPO, so we took another and the line quickly showed up and it was a lot darker! The picture you see is from the 15 DPO test. Thanks so much for your affordable products! We couldn’t be happier!”
A word of caution about evaporation lines . . . As your urine dries on the test strip, an evaporation line will sometimes appear, which might be confused with a faintly positive test line. As a result, it is important to interpret the results within time frame recommended by the test instructions (usually 5 minutes). That way, you will be sure to know that the appearance of any bands is due to a positive test and not the result of urine evaporation.
Taking a home pregnancy test that turns positive after you use it provides you with a wonderful feeling. However, it’s not uncommon for many women to want to take a second or third test just to make sure that her eyes aren’t playing tricks on her. While there are very few false positives, sometimes it happens that a woman receives a positive result on one test and a negative result on another. Before you panic, it’s imperative that you understand there are many instances in which this could occur.
One reason you might receive a positive pregnancy test the first time and a negative the second is that you are not using the test correctly the second time. It happens. If you use a different type of test, you might forgo reading the instructions because you feel that you already know how to use a pregnancy test. However, if that test has different requirements for use, you could end up using it incorrectly and seeing a negative result. It is always in your best interest to read the instructions provided with your pregnancy test prior to using it.
You might have used a defective test. All pregnancy tests come with test lines and/or timers. For example, if you use a traditional test in which you look for a second line to appear to tell you that you’re pregnant, you have to ensure the first line appears. If it does not appear after your urine hits the absorbent tip, the test is not working correctly and will not provide you with the correct result. If you use a digital pregnancy test, make sure that there is a little timer in the screen that blinks while you wait for your results to appear. If there is not, your test could be bad.
Another reason you might not receive a positive pregnancy test the second time you test is that you did not use your first urine of the morning. If you’re very early in your pregnancy, you need to use your first morning urine. Eating and drinking throughout the day can dilute your urine and cause your test not to detect the pregnancy hormone in your urine.
Positive Pregnancy Test Now Negative No Bleeding?
The good news is that if you took a pregnancy test and it was positive before you took a secondary negative test but you are not bleeding, you are probably still pregnant. Assuming that your positive test was not the result of a test taken while you are on fertility medication or right after a miscarriage, chances of it being a false negative are very slim.
If you did take a positive pregnancy test and then a negative test later, you could have done something wrong. You could have used an expired test. You could have used a broken test. You could have used urine that was too diluted for your test to find the hCG within it.
Additionally, there is a chance that you are too early in your pregnancy to see a positive result from just any pregnancy test. The test you used when you saw your positive result might have been a more sensitive test. This means that this particular test has the ability to detect lower levels of hCG in the urine. If the test you’re taking and receiving a negative with is not as sensitive, it doesn’t matter if you use your first urine of the morning and do everything correctly. The chances that this test will show a positive result are slim based on the levels of hCG in your urine.
Furthermore, you might receive a negative the second time around because of the type of test you’re using. Digital tests are foolproof to read. The tests that feature lines you have to look for in the results screen are much more difficult for some women to read. If the line is very faint, it might go unnoticed and you might assume that you are looking at a negative result.
Positive Digital Pregnancy Test Then Negative?
Digital pregnancy tests are much easier to read than regular pregnancy tests. One you urinate on the absorbent tip, you will watch the screen until your test results appear. If you are pregnant, you will see the word, “Pregnant,” appear on the screen. If you are not pregnancy, the words, “Not Pregnant,” will appear on the screen.
If you use this test and the result is positive, you are very likely pregnant. False positive pregnancy test is very uncommon in pregnancy tests. However, you might think that there’s something wrong if you test later and receive a negative result. If you do receive a negative result on a secondary test, you need to check for a few things.
The first is that you are using the test correctly. Incorrect use can cause the results to be negative and/or inconclusive. The second thing to look for is that the test is not expired or broken. There should be a date of recommended use on the package of your pregnancy test. If it’s broken, the test line or test timer will not appear when you use the test.
You should also check the sensitivity of the pregnancy test. If you used a sensitive digital test first and a much less sensitive test second, you might not have enough hCG in your urine for the less sensitive test to pick up. Finally, be sure to check that you’re using your first morning urine. Urine from the rest of the day is not really recommended for use when taking a home pregnancy test. Why? Because this urine is diluted by everything you’ve consumed throughout the day. Since you aren’t up all night drinking water or other beverages, your first morning urine is far less diluted and much more likely to show the true levels of hCG in your urine. Once you’ve checked each of these factors, call your doctor to schedule an appointment if your tests continue to show a negative result.
Missed Period and Negative Pregnancy Test
The medical practitioners consider the term of 26-32 days is a normal, healthy menstrual cycle of each woman. This cycle must be consistent every time with small deviation in 1-2 days and it is considered normal range. If woman have similar deviations or there is no cycle at all – this is an alarming signal for a visit to a gynecologist for conducting of a consultation and checkup.
The Causes of a Delay of Menses if There is No Pregnancy
After the done test for pregnancy confirms, as a result, its absence, then one must sort out one’s possible internal problems and failures in the organism.
Disorders of the hormone system are a frequent occurrence, especially of women not so long having born a baby, having consequences of the recent abortions, miscarriages, in other words, when an active alteration of an organism for a new fret progresses.
The delay after the labor is a normal state of physiology. The new mother has the production of prolactin contributing to an emergence of milk and, as a consequence, the temporary stop of menstrual days begins since the first moments of her baby’s life.
The cysts of ovaries are frequent syndrome causing a delay. This disease requires strict timely treatment until the cyst formation managed to increase in the size of the maximum limit.
Some endocrine disease, hypothyroidism, enlargement of a thyroid gland. During such diseases, active male and woman sex hormones are mixed, they are not produced in sufficient amount – it can to cause changes in menstrual cycle or its complete cancellation.
Sometimes the delay can be caused by unhealthy circumstances of life completely not related to diseases:
Sometimes the delay of a menstruation and the positive test may not speak of the possible coming of pregnancy and in these cases it is better to make sure by an examination by a gynecologist and a having a HCG test. Long use of the potent drugs, which produced the severe occurring points, load on general state of a woman’s organism is the key reason of such condition. This situation is rare and only your physician is able to duly assess it and prescribe an appropriate treatment.
What to Do in Case of the Menses Delay?
If there is a delay of mensis and the test is positive – the woman is directed for analyses and a checkup by a gynecologist. In case of the negative test- for ultrasound of the organs of the small pelvis in order to reveal any gynecological disorders, as cystic disease, endometriosis. Having made a special procedure named “a colposcopy”, it is possible to see a picture of condition of the uterine cervix and study, if there are any formations and other inflammatory areas in it.
If the gynecologist did not see any changes, pathologies and diseases from her point of view, one needs to search malfunctions in the organism on the hormonal backdrop and endocrinology. Therefore, the woman needs to undergo an endocrinologist’s advisory for the problem revelation. Having studied the case, the physician will send a patient for necessary blood and urine tests, for the hormones content test, ultrasound of kidneys and adrenals. If the disease is cured as rapidly as possible, menstrual cycle as well will be soon rapidly improved.
Each menstrual period is the same cycle in life of each woman as exchange processes in an organism, digestion of food, defecation. And it is important to duly look after that as for the whole rest. All the factors leading to any disorder should be considerably reduced, do not be banged up about trifles, do not tire out, do not starve and simply correctly nourish with helpful, but not harmful food. And then one can obtain women’s excellent health not depending on any negative influence.
Video: I missed my period and have cramps, but the pregnancy test is negative. What’s happening?
Have you missed a period but when you take a pregnancy test it comes up negative? There can be lots of reasons why you have missed a period and have a negative pregnancy test. Anything from weight fluctuation, to diet, to medications can cause a missed period. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate, but they don’t measure every hormone level. Sometimes when you take a pregnancy test your hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin) levels may not be high enough to register on a home test. With menstruation cycles varying in lengths you may think you are more pregnant than you truly are if you got pregnant later in your cycle. If you believe you are pregnant you can wait a couple days and retest.
Medications can lead to missed periods. Birth control pills can change the hormone levels in the body, to make it to where you either skip periods, or have very light periods. Other medications such as blood pressure drugs or even allergy medications can have enough change to the body that they can cause you to miss a period. You can always consult with your physician to see if this would be a side effect of any medication you are on.
Other lifestyle factors could have effects on your menstruation cycle:
Thyroid issues can have a negative effect on your menstruation cycle. Hypothyroidism is when your thyroid is under working. Hyperthyroidism is when your thyroid is over working. Both cause hormone level changes. This can be diagnosed through a simple blood test done by your doctor.
If any of these affect you but you are still unsure if this is the cause to your missed period you should consult your doctor.
Missing a period for three months or more is called amenorrhea. Amenorrhea is when you have the lack of estrogen. This affects three to four percent of women. There are different types of amenorrhe:
Your doctor will be able to help diagnose both types. Blood tests maybe needed, also you may need to do a CT scan or MRI if the blood tests come back normal.
Primary amenorrhea will be treated by first taking a family history to see if this is a genetic cause. Depending on patient’s age there maybe a ovarian function test done. This test will measure the amount of estrogen being produced.
Treatment for these depend on the cause. Treatment maybe as easy as changing your diet, or exercise regiment. Or if stress is the problem maybe seeking counseling or stress relievers such as meditation. Treatment for a thyroid problem can be treated with medication. If you have premature ovarian failure you can do hormone replacement therapy. Your doctor will have a plan on how to treat your amenorrhea.
Every menstruation cycle is different, but missing a period consistently is not normal. If you have any questions or concerns reach out to your health care provider and they will be able to help diagnose.
No Period BUT NOT Pregnant #HealthStatus
Way 1. Use of a Comic Test
1. Buy the counterfeit test for pregnancy. Look for such test in shops of comic gifts and draws. Such test when using always yields positive take, irrespective of the state of the person doing the test. You can also buy such test for eBay or in other online stores.
2. Report to the victim of draw that suspect that can be the pregnant woman.
3. Ask the victim of draw to be present at the father-in-law to give you moral support. Everything will look much more plausible if the person himself sees results of the test.
4. Make the test. You can make the test for pregnancy in two ways:
5. Wait for results. In the present tests for pregnancy usually it is required to wait 3-5 minutes.
6. Remain in the image. When it becomes clear that the test positive, react respectively, – cry or shout if it approaches on situation.
7. Enjoy reaction of the victim of draw.
8. Do not forget to report that it was only a joke!
Way 2. Other Tactics
Use urine of the pregnant woman. You are able to do it if you wish to make a really good draw, and also if you know some pregnant woman.
Correct the present test for pregnancy. Many tests show result plus (positive) or minus (negative). Draw on the father-in-law positive sign by means of colored pen or pencil.
