If you get a faint positve on a pregnanct test is it still a positive?

I had a pretty faint second line on my pregnanct test and I don't know what to think. Pregnant or not?

  • Probably you are. I would take another test in a day or two and see what that one says. I took a preg. test once (it was a cheap one ) and it came out neg. and then a few days later, got a better test, and then there was no doubt it was positive. Good luck!! By the way if you are just a few days late that could be why the faint line - your hormone level is not very strong to get a strong line.

  • maybe not. i did that and it turned out to be protein in the urine. so wait a day or two and take another one.

  • Mine was VERY faint, infact it wasn't until 10 minutes later that I noticed the line was even there. Low and behold I am 38 weeks pregnant so the test was right.

  • Yes mine was. I tested 1 week b4 I missed my period with #2, it was very faint, infact after the home test I went to the doc to confirm the next day, and the nurse had to ask 4 other people b/c the line was so faint.
