False positives...

I took a pregnancy test yesterday morning and it came out negative, but when i looked at the same test a couple hours later it was positive. Has anyone had this happen to them before? I'm going to take another test tomorrow...

  • any reading after about 5mins is a FALSE...called an evaporation line

    if you still think you may be pregnant, take a test first thing in the morning

  • Any result that is looked at 10 minutes after the test is taken is not accurate. So definately take another one if you think their is a chance you are pregnant.
