Here are some other reasons for positives on pregnancy tests:
- Evaporation Lines: Sometimes moisture can give a false positive on pregnancy tests. The line is usually very faint.
- Ectopic Pregnancy: In these cases, a fertilized eggs implants somewhere other than the uterus. This is a serious condition and needs immediate medical attention.
- Recent Miscarriage: If you have recently miscarried, your body may still contain substantial amounts of HCG.
- Reading your test too late: If you wait too long to read your test, you may see a positive result. Don't pull a negative test out of the trash and get your hopes up if it is positive hours later.
Have you ever experienced a positive result only to get let down?
