What if I get a false-positive on my HPT?


If you've received a false positive on a home pregnancy it is one of two things. 1. The hpt was faulty.
2. You were indeed pregnant and suffered an early miscarriage (chemical pregnancy) - one that occurs around the time the menstrual cycle is due.

A false positive can also result if a women uses an HCG trigger shot. Common in fertility treatments, used to get a woman to ovulate the mature eggs. Testing before its out of the body will read the HCG from the shot therefore giving a false positive.
