No.  Only hCG can turn a pregnancy test positive.  If its positive, assume pregnancy.

Nope .. A line is a line. It doesn't matter how dark.

And 4wks is pretty early for classic pregnancy symptoms for many women.

Congratulations!

That's only for OPK's.  With HPT's a line is a line as long as it is colored and shows up within the proper time frame.  Your tests look clearly positive.  While the test is looking for hCG there are a few things that can interfere with an HPT: any medication that contains hCG (such as Pregnyl, Profasi or Novarel), certain psychiatric drugs (such as chlordiazepoxide and Thorazine), Phenergan (the anti-nausea drug), and some diuretics (or other drugs that reduce bodily fluid).  Menopausal women sometimes have elevated hCG levels, but very rarely high enough to test positive on an HPT and some forms of cancer can cause elevated hCG levels as well.  But an infection would not cause a false positive.  You're pregnant!  Congrats!!
