    Default False positives while on mini pill

    Im still breastfeeding and am on the mini pill but recently felt the need to test and got a fairly clear line (which appeared in the first 10 mins) on a frer but did 2 following tests which were negative.
    Then bought a pack of the frer dip tests and got 1 neg and 2 faint positives (once they had dried but have colour in the line). This was about a week after doing the first tests. I also had an instance a few months ago where i got a positive, is it to do with the mini pill?

    I don't think the mini pill gives false positives.

    No, it doesn't. The mini-pill contains progestins only, not bhCG.

    It might be worth doing a digital test to see?
