Are false positives common?

Judging by the last time hubby and I had unprotected sex and when I'm supposed to get my next period, I thought it would be too early to test...BUT I just couldn't help it, I had an at home test in the bathroom and I just took it. I'm sure some of you know how that is with the excitement and all... So it's showing a positive result and I'm just wondering how common those are if anybody knows? I'm going to go get a digital one ASAP but I don't want to get my hopes up too much just yet.

  • I have gotten a false positive. But I think I did because the test I used was old. So if it was a new test then I'd say your pregnant. Congrats.
