  • it is very uncommon.

  • Very rarely. Something in your body is making the hormone to make the test positive.

  • It can, but it's very very rare. If you got a positive make an appointment for confirmation.

  • I have heard its possible but very uncommon. Usually a malfunction with the test. I would def. bank on the fact that you're pregnant, if you get a positive result!

  • You can have false negatives, but false positives are unheard of.
