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

Miscarriages in early pregnancy are not at all uncommon and chances are that is what happened. After having a period, you are no longer pregnant.

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.

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. They check with a pregnancy test and if it is positive they will give you a sonogram to make sure that you are pregnant and that everything is ok with your pregnancy. Having a positive pregnancy test doesnt always mean that you are pregnant. Something else in your urine can be causing the test to come positive. But having a positive test can in most cases mean that you are pregnant. Check with your doctor, that is the only accurate way of finding out.

If you dreamt about having a positive pregnancy test, it signifies that you are indeed pregnant.
