  • I would retest in the morning.

  • False positives are almost impossible. But false negatives are not uncommon. I would defiantly retest with your first morning pee. And defiantly make a doc. appointment to be 100% sure!!

  • Only enough hormone to do one test. Then it got diluted out. It happens in early pregnancy. Re-test with first morning urine.

  • False positives are very, very rare. It is much more likely your FRER was wrong, even though it is a more expensive test. It could have just been the concentration of urine that was tested and you happened to test with the cheap test with more concentrated urine. I'd test again, maybe wait a day or two.
