False negatives are way more common than false positives. If you have 3 tests that came back positive, then I would say you are pregnant.

If you're on the pill, and still got pregnant, then you must have done something to make the pill ineffective such as missing a dose, being on antibiotics that reduce effectiveness, or something else that interfered with the pill. Since you are likely to be pregnant, you should stop the pill. If you have sex, use condoms just in case. Go back to your doctor for a blood test to verify the pregnancy. If your doctor confirms you are pregnant, then congratulations. If he finds you are not pregnant, then keep using condoms and begin a new pill pack when you start your period (throw out the old one if there were any pills left). Use condoms for 7 days after starting a new pack.

But yeah you should be stopping the pill. Raye's advice was spot on.

I would wait a week, and retake a home test. If it still shows up positive, call the doctor for a blood test. Be sure to use your first urine of the day because it has the most hormones in it. Good luck!

If the one you took at the doctor's office was not with your first morning urine then it could very well be a false negative. Have them do a blood test.
