No, they don't. If you read the instructions included in the pregnancy test box then you'll see that one line may be fainter than the other. Two lines means positive.

It depends what type of pregnancy test it was - results differ on all tests. If on your test 2 lines means you're pregnant, then you're pregnant - even if a positive line is there it's positive because false positives are rare. If 2 lines mean you're not pregnant, get a blood test done at the doctor's

You took two pregnancy test and both say positive and lately you been having mild pain in your lower stomach could this be an infection or your pregnant and you not really late yet with your period?

If you had two positive pregnancy tests, then you are more than likely pregnant. Your body produces a hormone when you are pregnant that is only present during pregnancy thus showing positive tests. You should see your doctor about the pain, you could have something else going on. Pain is the body's way of telling you something isn't right and it shouldn't be ignored especially if you are pregnant. You are probably pregnant. On rare occasions you can encounter a false positive due to improper testing, expired pregnancy tests, rare medical conditions such as certain types of cancer, evaporation lines, a recent pregnancy or a chemical pregnancy.
