False BFP?

Postby SpongeBobBabyPants » Tue Jan 21, 2014 4:35 pm

Does anyone know if there is something to cause a false BFP? I got a couple faint lines on the strip tests and then broke down and got the digital kind. BFP. My DH wants me to take another test this weekend before making a dr appt. I tried to convince him that because of the way the tests work, it can only mean pregnancy. But now I'm second guessing myself. Anyone heard of a false positive HPT?

you can dip it into coke. I tried sprite once too but don't remember the outcome. coke will give a false positive- I thought my strips were broken. :) If you're talking about natural/urine, blue dyes will give nasty evaps but digitals don't lie.
