  • Hmmm. I would ask for an utrasound. 1 false positive is rare...but 6 false positives? I'd be willing to bet that you are, indeed, pregnant.

  • False negatives are pretty common. Different test have different sensitivities.

    False positives, however, are VERY VERY rare so I would say that you are either pregnant or you were.

    Did your doctor do a blood test or use a urine test?

  • i think False positives are incredibly rare....But false negatives aren't as rare. So I say you should talk to your doc and get a blood test so you know for sure.
