I took an at home EPT pregnancy test and it came out positive. What are the chances it is wrong?

It's usually right: Congratulations (if you like cute little babies)! after a week or two, a woman can be checked again at home or at her doctor's office. If there is a medical problem that does not allow her to carry a pregnancy, she can arrange for proper treatment then. Otherwise, a cute little baby is on the way.
