ok so what are the chances of having 2 false positive pregnancy tests?

I just got my mirena iud out November 5th and it is only December so this is kind of shocking seeing as how they told me it could take up to a year to get pregnant but last night I took two tests and both were positive could they be wrong they were only the $1 tests

As far as I know - (and I may be incorrect but check this with a professional) you do not get a false positive answer (false positives are an old wives tale), you can get a false negative but a false positive is impossible because the tests measure the levels of hCG hormones in your urine (and these hormones are only present in high levels during pregnancy) thus a positive test result SHOULD be correct. If you keep getting a positive I'd say go and see a doctor or clinic because chances are most likely that you are in fact pregnant.
