I am getting positive and negative pregnancy test results....what gives? (pioc)

I have taken SOOOOo many tests this week, during the afternoon and morning, and I am getting crazy readings.

Equate- neg & neg
Early Result Equate- very faint pos, very faint pos, & neg
First Response- neg & neg

What's the deal? How can I get a false positive? The positives came with afternoon urine, and every thing else was first morning. So what's right and what's wrong? I'm sick of pee tests...

I don't currently have insurance, so I can't afford to order a blood test. And I thought about going to the health department and getting a free urine test, but they use pee sticks too.......

  • Most tests test for different amount of the hcg hormone. Try a different brand.

  • Are you looking at them after the correct amount of time? That's the only thing I can think of...

  • how long before you checked with the pos?

  • I checked them all within the time limits. They were all 3 minute tests.

  • Personally, I would head to the free clinic. Tell the nurse there that you have taken several tests & aren't sure what's happening. Yeah, it is pretty much the same test but you will have a nurse right with you & she will make sure the time is absolutely correct & that the test is as accurate as possible. If only the early test is showing as positive, you might be testing too early with the other tests.
