  • False positives are not very common.... but early on tests will vary because levels are not very high... but blood will tell for sure, good luck!

  • I've never had a false negative, but I can tell you that unless you are taking certain hormone meds you can NOT get a false positive. The other two tests that were negative could have either been duds or your urine might have been diluted. Keep us posted.

  • Nope, the only way it tests positive is if the hormone is present! :) WOOHOO!

  • I would say a false positive is unheard of. I would go take a blood test at your doctors.

  • If you took two in one day, the second would have lower levels of HGH detected since HGH is most concentrated in the morning and lessens with each subsequent urination. That's probably why the second was negative. Perhaps the 3rd was a dud. I'd put my money on your being pregnant. I hope that's what you were hoping for!

  • :/ Not hoping for preggers. I have a wonderful 7 yr old boy and my bf has a 7 yr old girl. Wasn't planning on anymore.
    We will see....
