They are pretty accurate, but she should wait a few days to a week and take another one. If she still hasn't had a regular period, she should go to a doctor. Stress can cause irregular periods. Good luck!

Hey there. I missed my period for a whole month and was 2 weeks late after that. I took the EPT test and 1 out of 2 came back positive. I went for a blood test today. From what I know the tests are accurate. The only way you will get a false reading is if you wait to long to read the test or if an evaporation line shows up. (an evaporation line is a faint colorless line that shows up if the test has been sitting to long. It some times can be read as a positive. so the only 100% sure way to know is wait a while then get a blood test.

Hope it helped.
