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!
