Pregnancy tests can really be frustrating! Sometimes they CAN turn falsely positive if you let them sit for a few hours. However it is also possible that you are very, very early in pregnancy and it took the hormones time to turn the strip positive.

Typically though, if's negative after 10 minutes, it's negative. I'd say the likelihood of you being pregnant is low, but definitely take another test in a day or 2 to be sure. In general, throw the test out after the recommended time frame and do not attempt to interpret it later.
