  • Nope, never gotten a false positive. All pregnancy tests are very similar.

  • I can never find an equate pregnancy test that tells you 5 days befor your missed period but hpt has them. So I guess there not as accurate depending on when you take them.

  • I took an equate and i was only 3 weeks pregnant.....3 weeks from my miscarriage...and it was bright positive, went to the doc for a blood draw the same day, and my HCG was 36.....I am now 21 weeks pregnant.

  • My dr says that the equate tests are super accurate. I tested with this current pregnancy 7 days before my period was due and it was a super dark positive.
