  • If tested at the correct time, they are 99% effective. If you test early, that number drops.

  • I don't know the exact figures (apparently they do ^^), but I do know if it's positive, your pregnant. I've only heard of one false positive, and she had used EPT. I know with my first one I kept taking them and my mom said "Honey, just stop. You're pregnant and the next test will just tell you the same thing."
