how does sex effect the Fetal Fibronectin test ?

I know they ask you if you have had sex within 24 hours, but just wondering why it wouod throw a false positive...is it from his sperm, or from your dishacharge "cum" from having an orgasm?

  • Sperm. The proteins in semen give the test a false positive.
