The proven ways to get a false positive pregnancy test are using cola, taking help from your pregnant friend and using her urine, use heat, and ovulation predictor kit. If you are thinking that do pregnancy kit give positive results, then you need to know that expired pregnancy kits are useful in showing false positive pregnancy tests.

One of the easiest ways to confirm pregnancy is through a home test, which can detect pregnancy hormones i.e. human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). The female body starts producing this hormone when she is pregnant and the fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterus walls. Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is produced after six days of fertilization. If the woman is expecting, the hCG levels will continue to rise and will double up in every two to three days. But there are times that many tests can read as 'false negative' or 'false positive', so if you want to prank someone with a fake pregnancy test then you need to select one of the methods from the below list.

Before you proceed, please note that Pregnancy is a blessing to ensure that you have given your prank a proper thought and you are not hurting anyone's sentiments.

How to get a fake positive pregnancy test?

There are several ways for getting a fake pregnancy test. Below is a rundown of methods for making it work:

1- The first thing to do is buying a fake pregnancy kit. This kit will look like a real one it will always show positive result whether you are pregnant or not. With these you can get a positive pregnancy result with any liquid - even with plain water. This can be used anywhere be it is showers or bachelorette party.

2- You can also draw on regular pregnancy test.For making a pregnancy test positive, buy regular pregnancy tests (to be on a safe side if you messed up with one test). Get a marker of the color of the test lines. You can take a urine test and let the kit dry for a day. Now open the test case with something sharp and use the colored marker for drawing the positive lines and then re-close it. If it doesn't close then use glue.

3- Cola can make your plan successful.You can use any cola type and you don't have to use urine in this test. Dip the test stick in a cup of cola and let it stay there till the cola comes up on the strip. Let it set for next 3 minutes and let it turn positive.

4- Ask your pregnant friend to pee for faking a positive pregnancy test. It is one of the best ideas for getting a real pregnancy test as fake pregnancy test. You can also ask for a used test stick. The pregnant body produces plenty of hCG in urine for making the test positive.

5- Expired Test Kits can also save your day. This is another way of pranking on someone when expired test kits may give a fake pregnancy test. You cannot purchase the expired pregnancy test from the store. You can either buy it months earlier and then take a test which will expire till then.

6- Using soap in the urine. There are chances of getting a false positive result due to test contamination. It is advised to use clean container for collecting the urine but you can use soap in washing the container and not rinsing it properly.

7- Taking test during periods. The other thing that can contaminate the pregnancy test and provide you with the false positive is blood. You can take a test when you have your menstrual cycle.

8- Using a blow dryer or heat can help in fake a test. Heating a test can give you fake positive result. The HCG antibodies will go through the degradation and is able to give a color even in the hCG absence.

9- OPK can also help you out.The best option is to pick up an ovulation predictor kit. The reason behind this is these two kits look similar. You can do this on your ovulation day of the cycle, which you can predict using ovulation predictor apps like the Ela Fertility Mobile App.

10- Getting Evaporation Lines: Give a day or two for letting the test sit. You will observe the evaporation lines available next to positive lines. The evaporation lines become darker after drying and make it look like a positive test. Let it dry for a day or two to make the test to sit. But you need to prank it quickly before the lines fade.

11- Adding color to urine is also helpful: You can use food color or any water based color in the pee. This is also one of the reasons for getting a false positive pregnancy test. It is advised to use water-based color as it dissolves completely in the urine.

Also, go through what Faint lines on Pregnancy Test implies. You can also read Early pregnancy symptoms to determine whether you are expecting or not.

I think the most simple way to get the fake pregnancy test is by drawing a red line with a red marker beside the single line showing the positive pregnancy result so, you can prank with your boyfriend.

One of my friends frowned me after using a blow dryer on the pregnancy strip. I was dumbstruck after seeing her positive. I came to know later on that it's fake. Getting positive is really scary for someone who is not married.
