Post subject: Faint positive or evaporation line??
Hi,

My husband and I have been ttc for 3 months. I came off the pill in April, after 15 years, and the first month I didn’t have a visit from af for 31 days and the second month she didn’t visit again til 24 days later, however af hasn’t visited at all for 36 days now. I did a test Saturday morning, by peeing in a cup and putting the test in it so as not to splash the results window, then waited 3 minutes (I studidly thought 3 minutes and not the actual 5 minutes, which I have since learnt, was the maximum time to see a positive result), and saw only 1 line then when I looked at it again – about 30 mins later there was a faint second line but it was definitely there………could this be an evaporation line, even though I didn’t splash the results window, or could I be pregnant?

Any opinions or advice very welcome before I drive myself round the bend!! Laughing

If it said not to read after a certain time (for instance 5 or 10 mins) then this is not an accurate result sorry. If under any doubt, I would test again with your first morning wee and only read it before the maximum time. I hope it is positive for you.

Hi,

I have just done another test and looked at it within the right amount of time & there is a definate faint line again.......I am using an early pregnancy NHS midstream test that I bought off eBay - has anybody used these and got a false positive or are they reliable. Trying to not let myself get too excited if these tests are rubbish!

Thanks

It's pretty impossible to get a false positive as long as you have done the test right and read it within the right amount of time! Try a first response as I have found them to be the best - if it is a positive line then congratulations!

Sorry did not read your earlier post. As this would be the longest cycle you are probably still past your af date so try any time! Just try not to drink too much before you test so that you do not dilute your sample. Good luck!!
