Very good show.

About pregnancy tests.

An expensive Test might be so sensitive that it detects a chemical pregnancy, meaning in an early phase, when it wasn’t a real pregnancy yet. It was beginning to develop, but didn’t really go.

So it was right, but in the end a false positive.
It just detected a change in hormones.
That’s what a pregnancy does. It checkers for HCG, the human pregnancy hormone.
