I hate to annoy people on this board becaus I know that there are other people with problems but how accurate are the home pregnancy tests? I was reading reviews of home pregnancy tests online and a lot of people were complaining that they had false positives or false negatives. Who is there to believe?

False positives are extremely rare when a test is taken as directed.
False negatives are a little more common, but again, they're usually about user error: per taking the test too soon, reading results incorrectly, etc.
