A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you.

If the dates mentioned by you are correctly remembered by you and you have a regular cycle, then there is a remote possibility of getting pregnant. Your test might be false positive.
False positive test results can occur due to:
1.Errors of test application
2.Use of drugs containing the hCG molecule
3. Medications like chlorpromazine, phenothiazines and methadone.
4. Liver diseases, cancers like choriocarcinoma.
See your doctor, get your Urine pregnancy test repeated, get Serum hCG levels and Ultrasound Pregnancy protocol done.
Share my opinion with your doctor.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
