  • I have always been told that "there is no such thing as a false positive, only a false negative" when it comes to pregnancy tests. I don't know that for a fact, but with my personal experience, I took ovulation test and pregnancy tests (not in same cup though) and my pregnancy test showed a very very faint line that it was positive, so then I took 4 more preg tests and they all showed the faint line, so finally I just went and bought one of the tests that read "pregnant" "not pregnant" and it showed up pregnant!! My advice would be to get one of those that read it out, then there is no guessing with lines, false positives (if there are them), etc. Mine was so faint because I was only 1 to 2 weeks along when I found out, which made for a long pregnancy! lol. Good luck!!

  • those digital ones just remember that they require more HCG so you may get a positive with a line test but a negitive with those
