Welcome to ehealthforum,
The urine pregnancy test kits rarely show false positive results and if the tests have shown positive results (even faint positive), it is likely that you are pregnant. However, the test should always be done on early morning first urine sample to get accurate results (pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be in highest concentration in this sample, and you should avoid lot of fluid intake and caffeinated beverages in the night before taking the test). The test results should be read within the specified time to avoid false readings (evaporation lines can give appearance of positive test). Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets confirmed, getting repeat serial HCG levels tested will help to see if there is doubling up of the HCG levels in 48-72 hours indicating that pregnancy is going on smoothly. Early ultrasound scan done will also help to confirm presence of gestational sac and viability. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
