    False positive pregnancy test because of a bladder infection?

    Asked Oct 11, 2011, 01:50 PM 4 Answers
    I have taken two home pregnancy tests and both have come back positive, however, I have recently had a bladder infection and have read that this can cause a false positive result. How likely is this? Please, I'm worried if this has happened to me.

    It depends.

    If you've been having sex without using contraception, the tests most likely haven't lied.

    If you HAVE been using contraception, I'd see a doctor.
