I’ve never heard of cysts causing false positives… I didn’t even notice it on the box of my HPT, but I think false positives of any type are pretty rare.

As far as the bleeding goes, implantation bleeding is normal. It was like spotting right?

You’ll be okay for health insurance, you can go to a free clinic to get a blood test and your OB won’t need to see you until about 8 weeks. I was in the same boat as you when I got my BFP, I couldn’t believe it so I convinced myself it was a false positive. But you haven’t gotten your period and you got a BFP, so my vote is PREGNANT!!

I just wanted to add that if your card hasn’t come in yet, you can usually call the health insurance company, or your husband’s HR department and they should be able to fax you a temporary card within a day. Most companies do this.

Congrats! I hope this is it for you!!!!

I have a large cyst and a few months ago I thought I was pregnant. I tested negative. I actually never heard that they can give you false positives. Good luck!

I’ve never heard of that but I think you can still go to the doctor on your husband’s card.  My husband’s cards only have his name on it but as long as I’m under his policy then it is fine.

Good luck!  Sounds like you might want to talk to a doctor anyway about your health issues.

What type of pregnancy test did you use? If you used a digital then its very unlikely to get a false positive
