Argh not sure why my post came up empty,
I purchased cheaply tests but not convicted if this is an evap although it came up in the time frame.
I will get an expensive test in a few days just wondered what people thought?

looks like a line to me
Looks like we used the same tests. Mine were faint to begin with, ive tested every day for over a week now and had BFP's since 12 dpo.
Im still testing now , i love watching the line getting darker.
Id do another test 2moro as well just to double check.

Normally I'd say any line with colour in even if its faint is a positive , but I've had lines on these and not been pregnant so , they always looked slightly weird though (not quite straight or darker at one end than the other or not quite in the right place or blurry or something) I can't see your pic very well as its a little blurry but I would say if you do a couple and get the same line its a positive
Have you tested again today ? xx

Well I had 2 positives with the test strips, got a clearblue plus and did last night and was neg so thought I would do the other this morn and was also neg! Got more of the strips in post (I ha annoyingly already ordered!) and that was neg tonight too! So although they say its not possible to have false positives mine seem to be no af yet so will see what happens but I feel really deflated now ;-(

It depends what people mean by false positives though , getting a line thats caused by HCG when you're not pregnant is pretty rare, it can happen occasionally when a womans entering the menopause as your HCG levels rise , or if she's taking certain meds like fertility meds with HCG in , but its not a common thing.
The other reasons are, a faulty test that shows a coloured line of some sort even when no HCG is detected , I've been TTC for 2 1/2 yrs and used to be a serial tester with all sorts of brands and have had that type of false positive on everything from these cheap tests to FRER's and clear blue +/- tests ( I even had 2 out of a box of 3 give me a line with those but the thrid didn't)
Or it can be down to a chemical pregnancy which is where an egg implants and HCG can get high enough to be picked up but then the pregnancy fails very quickly and levels drop again and then you get AF shortly after,
Or it could be that the new batch of tests aren't as sensitive The digi's certainly aren't and in early pregnancy you need to have as strong a sample as possible to get a good result . If your AF still isn't here than it might be worth testing again with a morning sample xx

Thats why I stopped buying the cheapies in the end because I had it happen a couple of times and got my hopes up just to have a negative on other tests
It could be a good sign your AF still being a no show though, FX you are pregnant but its a bit early for the other tests yet xx

hi i have been testing with the strips too and got a faint line yesterday so did it again today with a slighty darker line son i tried a different brand first response and got a faint line on that too so i would try one like that because my sister didnt get a bfp until the day after her af with the clear blue hopes this helps xx
