Hello. : Hello. That is very sad that your friend had sex at age 11. A pregnancy test has to be done exactly the way the instructions say. If it sits out too long, it will indicate it is positive even if the girl is not pregnant. Your friend's mother can help her do another pregnancy test, to make sure it was done correctly. It is very important that the girls' parents or guardians are made aware of this. Whether or not she is pregnant, she really needs help. If she gives birth at age 11 or 12, it will be hard on her physically and emotionally. If she is not pregnant, she may have problems with self esteem if she is willing to do something that she is so clearly not prepared for. If your friends parents don't know and you feel torn about what to do, i suggest you discuss it with your parents. By the way, pregnancy usually cause a rash.
