  • I read in a book a long time ago that it can't....a + result is a deffinate one and a - result can be wrong. I might be wrong but I doubt it.

  • Get another brand & test again. That one could be defective. Good Luck.

  • Not even if you had a miscarage! I would ignore the second test, and go to doctor.

  • I took a test one time it came back positive, I scheduled my OB apt. And actually started bleeding at about 5 weeks, my apt was at 8. They went ahead and got my in and did a urine test, which came back neg. because I had lost the baby and my body was going through a natural miscarriage cleaning itself out. The blood test still came back pos. because my HCG level was dropping and it was too low for it to show on the urine, but still enough to show on a blood test. So yes, I have had a urine test show positive and then another one a week later show neg. IT is still a good idea to see an OBGYN, Because there are so many other things it could mean, even just a false negitive. Good luck with everything.

  • i would take another test and go to the doctors just to be sure. i had 4 false posative at home tests before i found out that i was pregnant.
