  • They say it doesnt matter at all how faint the lines are. And my doctor told me you can have a false negative, but not a false positive. Give it a few days then test again.
    Good luck!

  • I would also give it a few days and then retest, but you could also call your Dr and get a blood test, they are accurate and then you will know for sure.
    Good luck!

  • If one was positive, then you're knocked up!

    Did you use diff. brand of pregnancy tests? diff brands detect diff. amounts of hcg (pregnancy hormone that makes the test tell you if you are pregnant) and some will come out with diff. results depending on how far along you are.

    call your doc and get a blood test if you can.

  • I would give it a few days, with my first i took a hpt and it was neg. i went to the beach for my anniversary and all of a sudden felt like crap, my head hurt i felt sick , i thought i had really bad indigestion. the next day was fine, got back home and took another test and it was pos. i actually had 2 periods while i was preg. so even if you do start your period i would take another test just to be sure. even if it is light it is still pos.

  • Well if you got a positive , even if it was faint then its probably right. You can get false negatives, but a false positive is rare. In order for the test to show positive it must detect the hcg hormone in your urine . So make a doctors appt asap so you can find out for sure. Wishing youo lots of luck!

  • False negatives are a dime a dozen... false positives are next to impossible. My Fertility Specialist told me that the only time a woman should get a positive and end up not being pregnant is if she suffered a chemical pregnancy. =) All it takes is one stick with two lines! Make a doctor's appointment, honey!

  • Get a digital pregnancy test. It's worth the money if you're confused and worried about it. Yes, you could be pregnant. One of my best friends is here today because of the 99.9% effectiveness of birthcontrol, she was the 0.1% (I'm assuming that's what you meant by a "28 day schedule")
