At 10 dpo i took a test and it says positive. Today at 12 dpo i took the same brand of test and it say negative? Could the first test have been a false positive?I thought false positives are rare. Are these things reliable anyway?

HPT's are extremely reliable when taken at a time when HcG is detectable and interpreted in the amount of time stated on the package. You should be able to obtain an accurate result 10-14 days after your pregnancy risk.

If that amount of time hasn't passed, wait until it's been at least 10-14 days. Otherwise, test again first thing in the morning, and if you're still unsure, call your doctor.
