When mine came out positive I went to the doctor and they never gave me a pregnancy test there they just went straight into prenatal care. I mean they did the first ultrasound but it got me thinking what if the HPT lied? I know it can say negative when it's really positive but does it ever happen the other way around?Answer Question

There are no false positives only false negatives. And if you peed in a cup at the dr. office then I guarantee they tested it that first time to make sure you were pregnant. They just didnt tell you they did it. They arent required to tell you they ran a pregnancy test anyway. It's standard procedure. They arent going to just take your word for it and begin treating you as pregnant without testing for themselves. What if you were were some kind of loon who just liked to imagine they were pregnant? It happens.
When I went to have outpatient surgery done once on my sinus, they asked me if I was pregnant. I said no. But they still had to run a preg. test before they would proceed w/ the anesthesia. They have to cover all their basis.

Maybe it's convenient for doctors to do ultrasounds so that they can bill insurance companies for it. They probably figured the ultrasound would definitely confirm pregnancy or not, so why not just go for it and maximize the profit.
