This is pretty rare.. a positive test indicates that HCG was found in your urine. .here are reasons for HCG to be in your urine... 1) Pregnancy 2) you've recently taken a shot of HCG for infertility treatments 3) you have a tumor that is producing HCG 4) heterophilic antibodies http://www.osti.gov/energycitations/product.biblio.jsp?osti_id=6437207 5) Chemical Pregnancy A chemical pregnancy is basically an early miscarriage. Research has shown that half of all first pregnancies end in miscarriage. Due to the high sensitivity of home pregnancy tests, many women catch early pregnancies but end up going on to have their periods due to a chemical pregnancy. 6) You read the pregnancy test after the time the instructions alloted..on some tests a line that looks positive will show up later, but it's not a true positive. most of the time the answer is Pregnancy ~pawsalmighty

Yes it is possible. Some woman get there period during the first few months of pregnancy. You need to see a doctor to find out if you are pregnant.

Can you pass a home pregnancy test and not be pregnant?

It is possible to get a false positive on a pregnancy test, but highly improbable. I once went in the doctor after taking a home pregnancy test and the doctor basically said that he would not test again, because they use the same test and I was pregnant. But, I did get a false positive as a teenager and the 2nd test was negative. Take a 2nd test.
