We understand your concern, Lantia.  There are some factors which can affect your result.  If you've recently been pregnant, even if not carried to full term, you may get a false 'Pregnant' result.  Ectopic pregnancies, ovarian cysts, and the use of fertility drugs containing hCG can cause misleading results.  Women who are in or are approaching menopause may also receive a false positive result.  

Due to the sensitive nature of your experience, we'd like the opportunity to talk through your questions.  Please give us a call at 1-800-321-3279 and mention reference #FB353.  We're open M-F from 8:30am-5:00pm Eastern time and would be happy to help. We wish you the best!
