  • Its very rare to have a false positive. If it says positive you are probably pregnant.

  • Actually it IS possible if you are on any hormones...if you are not - there is no way for your body to produce the hCG (what the tests pick up in the urine). If you have a posative - make an appointment with your OB.

  • Take another test with your first mornings urine would be my suggestion. False positives are few and far between but there is always the chance there's a bad lot of tests.

  • False positives are almost impossible. Unless you are on some sort of hormones (not birth control pills) then positive means pregnant. Go to your doctor and check out
