I am pregnant and I have already tested negative twice to both curent and past infection. I am due another test but I find them very stressful, especially given all I have read about the high rate of false positives.
Does anyone know what causes false positives? Am I any less likely to test false positive now that I have had to completely negative results?
I would really appreciate some info, my own doctor just wasn;t sure.

I'm a little confused. Have you been exposed to toxoplasmosis or have reason to believe you might be infected?
