  • You're more likely to have a false positive than a false negative. Or you could just be so early in your pregnancy that the hormone is just barely registering.

  • They always say that if its positive congradulations and if its a negative its a maybe. Your more likely to get a false negative than a false positive =)

  • It much more likely that the negative is wrong. I've never heard of someone getting a positive test and not be pregnant.

  • A false positive is very very rare. For a test to come up positive, it needs to detect HCG, it doesn't just come up positive randomly.

    A lot of people think they got a false positive, when in reality, they had a chemical pregnancy instead. They miscarried so early, that it was no different than a regular period.

    However false negatives are very common, even among urine tests that doctors have. A blood test will show 100%.

  • Positive is positive. It would have had to detect a hormone that essentially didn't exist... Good luck on the blood test! :)
