    Has anyone had a false positive with CB digital?

    I had a m/c at 9 weeks on 10 Dec 2011. BFN on 4 Jan 2012. Period on 18 Jan 2012.

    My period is now 6 days late so took a CB digital on Sunday and came back pregnant. Took another one yesterday and said negative (although this was late in the day) and took a first response this morning and negative.

    I'm so confused - how could it be positive and then negative?

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Oh dear hun!! How confusing...

    Firsly sorry to hear about your miscarriage :shock:

    I really don't think you can get a false positive though? Not with a digi? So it may jsut be that there wasn't enough hCG in your later wee? Although if period is 6 days late you should get a + at any time of day...

    It could be that your hormone levels are still a bit messed up?

    I would take another test firsat thing tomorrow and if this is a + go to your GP and ask for your hCG levels to be tested.

    Best of luck

    Has anyone had negative tests and then turned out to be pregnant?

    Seems like I got my hopes up for nothing :(

    Yes I did! I tested and had a bfn then didn't think I could be preg until 6 weeks later I still had no period so tested again....BFP!

    Also u can't get a false positive because it is positive because ur urine has a pregnancy hormone in it, which u only get if ur pregnant! You should do first urine of the day as stronger...test again to o morning! But I'm pretty sure it's a BFP! X

    Hi hun did the cb digi say pregnant and show the weeks underneath , if it did I'm pretty sure its a defo bfp as it would need the hormone to register the weeks and a positive xx

    Oops didn't mean to post that reply so many times!

    Just so confusing that 2 negatives after a positive...

    I just looked at the test again (I know I shouldnt) and I might be imagining it but there could be a really really faint line, I mean really really faint. Although surely now because I left it for 5 hours or so it is invalid.

    Guess will test again tomorrow to know for sure....

    Worried that even if BNP, not a viable pregnancy because my hormones should be stronger by now, surely it would be a strong line?

    Sorry blabbering but feel like my heart is being torn in two!

    I'm sure if it was a chemical the not pregnant would be accompanied by bleeding , I would test again in the mornin with ur first wee but its looking good as there has to be the hormone present to get a pos , maybe the neg where just diluted urine , fx crossed its a definite bfp in the morning , let us know how you get on x x

    I've had two things happen:

    Once got Pregnant 1-2 weeks then a Not Pregnant, and that was one of my miscarriages.

    I've also had a BFP on 20miu tests then a Not Pregnant on digi, given up hope only to get a Pregnant 1-2 weeks a week later - and that's now me in tri 2!!

    So it could go either way hon, fingers crossed it's a sticky bfp xxx
