Yes, both false positives and negatives can happen at reliable clinics. Sometimes the reagents used for the test may be old, improperly stored or handled, causing the problem. On the other hand, home pregnancy tests are notoriously inaccurate.

Anything is possible; however, they're usually always right. Sometimes home tests may not be able to detect the pregnancy hormone. If you are pregnant, congratulations, and be very happy!

Yes, especially if you took the home pregnancy tests. Go to a clinic and have a blood test done.

By abortion at the clinic/hospital. Attempting on your own without doctors supervision is an illegal abortion and unsafe.
