Hello All,

So being axious all week I broke down and took an early detection test.  I would guess that I'm 3-4 days before missing my period.  Test showed positive immediately.  Taking another one in the morning, but I've read alot about false negatives but didn't know if false positives are a regualr thing.  Thinking no, but I am beyond clueless on this point.  This is the very first pregangcy test I've ever taken or thought about taking in my almost 39 years.  Thanks for your help.

There is no such thing as a false positive

You can get a defective test but taking more than one test will answer and if it showed up right away its not a vap or defective test

Most likely if you get a positive on more than one test it's a true positive. "False positives" are evap lines that show up after the 10 minutes, usually they're grey not pink (or blue) and they're not as thick as the control line.
