Brief Answer: False positive can happen with dettol. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. You can get a false positive test using dettol. The pregnancy test kits are 97% accurate in predicting pregnancy. But you will have to wait till your periods are overdue by at least five days. Right now it is too early to get a positive test even if you are pregnant. For a more accurate result, you can get a serum beta HCG evaluation done after consulting your gynecologist if your periods are overdue. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
