  • There is no such thing as a false positive. If there is a positive, then your pregnant.

  • Yup, there's no such thing as a false positive. You're pregnant, mama! You can have a blood test done if you want to ease your mind, though.

  • I know I've heard on the rarest occasion that certain mediocations or birth controls can trick a test into thinking you're pregnant but the chances of the happening are sooooooo slim. And of course there's the whole Urban Legend about bad pregnancy tests but I sincerly doubt there's any truth i that. Take another test. If it comes up + or - call the doctor to schedule a clinical test... Alot of places will do one for free if you walk in.

  • I had a false negative with my first baby!! YEP!!! Took the test, it came back negative!! I was 5 days LATE with my period at this point!! I called the 800-number on the pregnancy test package. They told me to wait another 7 days to see if my period would start. I waited the 7 days, no period still!! I did the test again--the second test was POSITIVE!!
