How did positive turn to negative? When getting medical reports we all want a negative result well that is unless we’re seeking to become pregnant. While on the other hand we all generally believe in staying positive except when tragedies occur. Which begs the question why such smart brilliant medical professionals couldn’t come up with better terms then negative being positive and positive being negative? It could have been your result was simple “good” or simple “not so”. See even in this new verbiage I have a positive aspect well at least not in the medical lingo.
