5 doctors weighed in:

I had a emergency room administered pregnancy test 6 days after intercourse. It came back negative. Is it possible it was a false positive?

In brief: Confusion

False positive would be a positive.
A false negative would be negative. Likely test correct, but repeat if questioning.

In brief: To soon

Six days after intercourse is to soon to test.
You should repeat if your period is actually late. Take care!
