Re: positive test?

Well, I heard of a certain generic brand that often gives false positives. Did you by any chance use any of the Target brand tests?

Re: positive test?

I suggest giving it another week or so, and test again. Or, when in doubt, call the doctor for a blood test.

Re: positive test?

well I called my dr and they want me to wait 2 weeks and if I still get a negative test and no period then they want me to come in.took another one this morning and still negative but looked like maybe a faint line but it could have been an evap line

Re: positive test?

It's important to read the test within the specified time frame, and to throw it out after that. That's why they come with instructions.
Pregnancy tests are no longer accurate after ten minutes; even negative tests will often read positive after a period of time, because the dye bleeds.

Best of luck. I hope you ultimately get the result you want.

Re: positive test?
