FALSE POSITIVE: Pregnancy test are more rare than false negatives. Repeat a pregnancy test with a first morning urine to confirm, if you are still in doubt.

See Below: If you had sex since your last period, did the test correctly, the test result is likely accurate. If you have any doubt, get a blood test for HCG level. Wish you good health!

Tests are accurate: Congratulations (if you love cute little babies)! A newly pregnant woman can make an appointment to be checked at her doctor's office. If there is a medical issue or problem, she and her doctor can arrange for proper follow-up then. Otherwise, a cute little one is on the way. Do remember that miscarriages are a normal part of life, so some pregnancies will not survive the first three months.
