Is a digital pregnancy test more accurate or just easier to read?

I know this sounds like a dumb question but i took three tests today. One was a digital early response test, and it said YES! Then, i took two other regular tests. One was positive (it had a faint line) and the other was negative.

I know that is is unusual to get a false positive. If i am preggo, i am about 4 weeks. My cycles are really short, and i'm about 5 days late. I plan on calling my dr tomorow. but im hoping it's really positive.....

  • Easier to read. When I got pregnant with my son, I could barely see the second line, and I wasn't sure if it was my imagination or wishful thinking maybe. Digital takes the guess work out.

  • easier to read, for sure, and that could have a factor in the accuracy... if that second line is faint, it could be misinterpreted...

    living proof...

  • it says in the directions that if the manual read out says negative and the digital part says positive, then it's negative..thats why ill never take a digital one..easier to read imo
