Your question???: RU asking if there's some reason besides pregnancy that could cause a positive pregnancy test? If so, it's unlikely but possible, OTC pregnancy tests are pretty specific for the hormone HCG which is secreted by the placenta. Sometimes a placenta forms even if there's no embryo or after an embryo dies. In any case, you should see a doctor after having 2 positive pregnancy tests. Best wishes.
