Post subject: Confused.com!!
I was wondering if anyone could please give me some advice. I'm on the contraceptive pill but do pregnancy tests every couple of months (to be on the safe side). I did one two weeks ago, looked at it after a couple of mins and saw a neg but when i returned to it(a few hours later), a faint line had appeared. I did another one and it read neg. Again a returned to it a few hours after and a faint line was there. I waited a week to do another one and again, this one has come up with a very faint line. In total i've perfomed 6 pregnancy tests and 4 have come up with faint lines. Each neg thats turned into a pos has been looked at a few hours on as i always though 2-3 mins was enough time to get a pos result. I've used three different brands so surely there not faulty??
As you can tell, i'm rather confused and in need of a little advice. Can anyone help??
Thank you x

You have to read the tests within the time limit, anymore than 10mins (normally) and it can give you a false reading that needs to be disregarded. So the second line you have seen my have been an evaproation line rather than a positive.
I would do another test and read it within the designated timescale then discard it.
Let us know how you get on
