False positive pregnancy tests are incredible rare. If you have a positive pregnancy test then you need to assume it is correct and make an appointment with a doctor. Positive home pregnancy tests are so accurate that most doctors accept that as a confirmation of pregnancy.

False positive pregnancy tests are more common with blue dye pregnancy tests though. I suggest only using pink dye pregnancy tests to reduce the risk of getting a false positive. Sometimes a second line will show on a blue dye pregnancy test but it isn't a real line, it is an indent and looks very close to a real positive.
