  • No there isn't! There is such thing as a false negative, but never a false positive.

  • There is but from what I've read it comes from people reading the evaporation lines. In other words if you read it within the time limit of the test, it shouldn't be a false positive. But also, You can get a positive, then a few days later start, and get a negative, if that happens chances are it was a chemical pregnancy.
