Just done some research on the 'predictor early' pregnancy test after getting a very faint positive and a lot of people are saying they are notorious for false positives. Has anybody else had a bad experience with this brand?x

The reason it has such a high rate of false positives is because it is such a sensitive test. It's picking up low levels of hcg which less sensitive tests might miss, low levels such as those associated with chemical pregnancies. It's extremely common for women to have chemical pregnancies, and this is possibly what the "false positives" are. There's no such thing as a false positive. I read those reviews and the women who wrote them seem to be completely oblivious to the whole chemical pregnancy/ test being very sensitive/ false positive thing.

I had a good experience with this brand. I had a negative result, and it was right.
