Does clomid give a false positive?

Has this happened to anyone?? I started my 3rd round of clomid thinking AF had arrived (7 days early), but AF was very light and short (unusual for me). I took a pregnancy test on day 3 of taking the clomid and got a positive. Does clomid give a false positive or am I pregnant? Has this happened to anyone? Did you end up pregnant or was it the clomid?

Clomid does not cause false positive pregnancy tests. I would call your dr and tell them what happened!

not it should be sometimes if you got a shot of HCG or something to help ovulate that could give you a false positive

I am not sure about that but I heard some people saying when you take Clomid you get positive for few days but I never tested on that... the only symptons i have with Clomid is spotting ,cramps and light period.If you are more concerned you can talk to your doc about that. Good luck

I'm pregnant. I didn't have implantation bleeding with my first two children, but did this time around. I thought it was AF, but wasn't. I'm due at the end of September.
