pregnancy test - false positive anyone?

I know false negatives are much more common, but have any of you ladies ever had a false positive? with a digital at-home test? I used clear blue easy.

I believe the tests are fairly acurate, and false positives are far less likely than false negatives because they rely on testing a hormone that is produced during pregnancy. You could take another test, but I would probably schedule a visit to my doctor to be sure.

From what I've learned false negatives happen regularly if you test too early before enough hormone is present for the test to show positive. About the only way to get a false positive is if you are on hormones to try to get pregnant those hormones can mess with the pregnancy test. If your on horomones you'll need a blood test, if not I'd say your pregnant.

I once had a doctor give me an instant strep test, and what he said was that it was like a pregnancy test...if it was positive it was definitely positive, but if its negative it could still be positive....Im assuming this is unexpected? Hope alls okay...

well, no offense, but if you have unprotected sex and get pregnant, is that considered "not expected"?
