    Default false positive pregnancy test

    hi everyone I just need some help trying to work out whats going on. Has anyone done a CONFIRM hpt and waited the recommended time frame and been negative but then go away for an hour and it was positive?

    Story goes like this, 3 days late. Do a test at night wait 2 minuses and negative. through it one side a went to sleep. woke up in the morning and the test caught my eye and saw 2 line. through to myself this is a evaporation line and threw it out. next day do one using Confirm again and wait 5 minuses and test is negative but maybe i see a second line but cant be sure because I want it so much. leave the test in my room come back an hour last and its positive. but its of course out of the 10 minuses. So im going to do another one tomorrow morning again using confirm. Also add that the lines on the test were all the same color not gray like they say a evaporation line is meant to be.

    These test are not cheap. They are meant to be one of the best test out there so why are they showing so many evaporation lines. any advice please would help girls. 4 DAYS late now too

    I had a false positive last month with FRER! That's why I always do more than one, just to make sure.

    think* Its hard when you get a false hpt. You just want to see it so bad so when you see a false one its a killer
