In brief: Test the husband

False positive hCG tests are possible but not common; your husband needs a sperm count checked.
Good wishes.

Multiple (more than 1) false positives is even more rare; defective kits are uncommon. Even if the male partner had a "negative" post vasectomy it's worth checking again, because there are really no consistent explanations otherwise. Generally if the test is positive you were pregnant. This does assume you are using a pregnancy test and not a substitute like an OPK (bad idea.)
