Pregnancy Tests

Is it possible that an EPT would give a false positive 5 months after having a baby?

Probably not. You should go see a doctor and find out if you are pregnant again. Or why you are getting a positive result if you aren't.

It is not possible with 1 test to have both positive and negative. It is possible, but NOT likely, to get a false positive or false negative on a test.

A false positive is very rare but it is possible. It is a LOT more common to get a false negaive than a false positive. The best thing for you to do, is to do another pregnancy test. If the test is still positive then you are pregnant and should see your doctor.

There are a few possible explanations. The most likely is that you contracted chlamydia within those three months. Another possibility is that you got the first test so soon after infection that it could not yet be detected. A false negative or false positive test is another possible explanation.

Certain kidney and liver diseases will cause a false positive. Also possible triggers for a false positive are diabetes, Amoxicillin, or tonic water.
