1 Bump

I took a pregnancy test two days ago and it said neg. I kept the test so that I can show my husband and today the test is reading pos.

Is it showing pos cause it's old? Has this happen to anyone? Please info would be great?

  • It's not valid after so long. You need to take another test.

  • some evap's look very positive, that's why you shouldn't read them after 10 minutes

  • I have had a plus turn negative and was pregnant. But never had one turn positive after reading negative. The only way to tell for sure it to take another one. You could always wait another day or two and you could take the dollar store ones. They worked fine for me!

  • This happened to me. I WAS pregnant. Have you started your period? Lack of menstration is the first sign of pregnancy. Try taking another test. If it's been two days, your HCG levels will be higher, creating a quicker reading.

  • the point is not that it wasn't correct, the point is that after ten minutes you need to chuck it...it's no longer valid. Did you read the box?
