I AM REALLY UPSET AND I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE PEOPLE AWARE OF THIS AND NOT TO GET HOPES UP LIKE I DID.

I HAD A FALSE POSITIVE FROM THE HPT FIRST RESPONSE!!

MY LMP WAS AUG 1ST, I WAS 47 DAYS INTO CYCLE AND HAD A POSITIVE.

I HAD A M/C AND THE PASS SO I WENT TO THE ER TO BE CHECKED ON TILL I COULD SEE THE DR. THEY GAVE ME A URINE, IT WAS NEGATIVE. I TOLD THEM I HAD A POSITIVE AND THEY DREW FOR A QUANTITATIVE HGC AND DID A QUICK PELVIC EXAM. IT CAME BACK AS ZERO!!!! ALL THEY CAN SAY IS, IT WAS A FALSE READING, AND I EVEN SHOWED MY OB/GYN MY TEST, IT WAS A POSITIVE. I AM 50 DAYS INTO MY CYCLE NOW AND STILL NO MP.

I've heard of false positive from blue dye tests, but not usually from First Response.
