  • It sounds like it very possibly could have been an early miscarriage. You can get false negatives pretty easily, but I do not believe in false positives at all. Pregnancy tests only detect HCG and you only have HCG when pregnant. If I were you, I would call my doc and let them know what happened and see if they think you need to be seen and checked.

  • i agree false positives are very unlikely and only usually happen with in 6 months of having a baby... (thats because u still have a high hormone count.) so i would call a doc and get checked out

  • Go to the doctor for an exam and tests to know what went to for your health.

  • The tests will only show positive if there is the pregnancy hormone. The same thing happened to me, the same day the test came out positive, with a very light line I had clotting, i let it go for 2 weeks and finally went to the doctor. They had to do and emergency surgery to take out my fallopian tube because i had an ectopic pregnancy and my tube was soooo swollen. Go to the doctor ASAP!!!!!!
