False positive?

Posted by: summerdawn724 on Wed May 19, 2010

Has anyone experienced a false positive OR false negative on a pregnancy test? Here's what happened to me yesterday: I went to the clinic and they gave me a pregnancy test. It showed negative after the 3 minute timer went off, so the nurse said it was negative. A few minutes later, when I went in for my pap, the nurse came in and said that minutes after the timer went off, a faint positive line showed up. She tested again, same thing.

But the gynecologist told me that since their instructions say not to read anything after 3 minutes, the results might be false positives. During my pap she also noticed "blood spots" on my cervix, so she said I may be getting my period soon. I'm not sure if my period was due last Friday or this Friday, so the nurse said to come back in 2 weeks if I haven't gotten it yet.

HELP! Has anyone had a false positive or do you know what causes them? If I'm not pregnant, why would a positive line show up after the three minutes? I REALLY hope it was a positive positive! :)
