Positive test: False Positive tests are not very common. You could always do another home test to verify. Unless something is wrong there is no reason to rush into an urgent care or ER just because you are pregnant. You can just call and schedule your first Ob appointment with your obgyn in the next few weeks.

Lab results: Are always flagged as normal or abnormal. In the case of hCG, the "normal, " result is negative. Positive hCG levels are flagged by the labs' automated systems as "abnormal, " but that says nothing about the normality of your pregnancy. Follow your doctor's recommendations.

If one takes a pregnancy test when spotting will it result in false positive? Will it be inaccurate because of spotting contamination?

If one takes a pregnancy test when spotting will it result in false positive? Will it be inaccurate because of spotting contamination?

Depends: If you can keep the urine from being contaminated with the "spotting" the test will still be accurate. If you have any doubt, get a blood test for HCG level. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
