Have you had false negative or false positive?

Have you had either a false negative or a false positive? What brand? Days before/after period? :)

Lol just curious, I think I have had both in the past...

  • False positives are VERY VERY VERY VERY rare and almost NEVER happen on a good pink die test. That being die tests are known for false positives. There are issues with the color and antibody strip in the blue ones.

    I had a false positive on TWO blue die test in a row. Did a little research and found I was not the only one.

    I have also had false negatives but only because the hormone was not high enough in my urine yet to detect it.

  • Pink dye never registered me being pregnant with my first, so I kinda don't like them. I usd like three first response even after my blood test to prove it didn't work to my cousin... Idk just curious now if it'll be different with number two

  • i had 2 false negatives with first response, which is a VERY good test. in fact i took 2 tests a week apart each time and the 2nd came back positive the first was negative and each time i was entering my 2nd trimester.
