What is meant by false positive in pregnancy test? What causes it?
I've heard this one and wondering what it means. What can be the factors that can cause this if you had a pregnancy test?
Ok. You are asking the wrong question. It is not what causes a negative pregnancy test. It is what causes a positive pregnancy test. All tests will come up negative because that is the way our bodies naturally are. However, pregnancy tests measure certain hormones given off by the placenta when you are pregnant. So only when the placenta is present will your pregnancy test be positive.
It is unlikely that you will actually get a false positive pregnancy test, you are more likely to get a false negative. You can get an evaporation line on the test which might be what you call a false positive but this will likely have no colour. A line on the pregnancy test indicates that hcg is present which is produced when you get pregnant so this will produce a positive test if it is in your system.
