Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.
Yes, chances of false positive is there but if it is done with standard kit and procedure is accurate chances of false positive are less.
You can consult a gynaecologist and get your blood test and ultrasonography test done to rule out pregnancy.
Good luck.
Regards
Dr. Richa
