I have never had an inaccurate pregnancy test. I am pregnant with my second child and with each of my children I took two test. I've heard of people having a false positive result from medication containing hcg. And I've heard of people having a false test when they were pregnant but took their test before their hcg was high enough to detect.

the only way thety are inaccurate is if you take a test too early wait for atleast the day you are suppposed to have your period or get a blood test done!

Home pregnancy tests are not always accurate. It is always best to see a doctor for accurate pregnancy results.

While home pregnancy tests are very accurate, they are less accurate than a pregnancy test evaluated by a laboratory.

No, pregnancy tests are not always correct.

nope..sometimes the pregnancy test can't detect...but if you wait until your missed period, they are more accurate. A blood test done at the doctors are very accurate.

Yes, pregnancy tests aren't always one hundred percent accurate.

100% when done correctly.

Yes, pregnancy tests are not always 100% accurate and a doctor should be able to confirm or deny if you are, in fact, pregnant.

Yes. Home pregnancy tests are not always accurate. Take multiple tests, or see a doctor. If you are far enough along in the pregnancy to be feeling movement from the fetus, then your belly should have started protruding.

Home pregnancy tests claim to be 99% accurate but early tests are only 40-50 % accurate so wait at least a week before taking the pregnancy test.

They are over 99% accurate when used on or after the day of your expected period.

Hello, If you have 0 HCG in your blood, and if you conceived after this then a pregnancy test would be accurate. A pregnancy test will not be accurate if you have any HCG in your blood.

There is not a pregnancy test called bleach. Most pregnant test are accurate.

Store bought pregnancy tests (OTC) are most accurate at the beginning of the missed period.

Although urine tests are almost 100 percent accurate, there could be something affecting the test that is not a pregnancy. Blood tests, are completely accurate, and i recommend anyone to get a blood test instead of a urine test, because they can tell right away if your pregnant, and it wont be something setting of the pregnancy test, when really it isn't a pregnancy, and it's always important to be absolutely positive. - Nicole.

Depends on the brand of the item or who is doing the exam thingy.

Home pregnancy tests are not as effective as blood tests. I am on my fifth pregnancy and have had many occasions where a home test has simply not shown up. Although I have been told this is rare, a blood test is the only way to be certain.

Pregenency tests are not always accurate. The best way to find out is by seeing a doctor, or a proffesional. If you suspect anything, see your doctor even if your tests come out negative.

Most pregnancy tests are accurate day one of your missed period, if your test is negative retake it in 3 to 7 days.
