One positive EPT but the rest have been negative?

I took an EPT and it came up faintly positive but all of the others since have been negative. What could be going on? :(

  • could be too early to test or you are not pregnant. Good Luck if you are TTC

  • Did you take them one right after another? Or did you take the positive one in the morning and the negative ones later in the day? If so, you may not of had a high enough level of HCG in your urine for the negative tests.

  • Describe "faintly". Is it possible that you misread?

  • no matter how faint it is, a positive is a positive. There are no false positives, only false negatives. So... either you imagined the faint line or you are pregnant. Wait until morning and test again with your first urine.

  • what color was the dye? The blue dye test are a bit harder to read... the evap line on those tends to appear as a faint blue line when it is not.

  • The positive you saw wasn't a positive after all and you merely imagined it in your "excitement" to be pregnant.

  • My husband and mother both saw the positive within the time frame so I didn't imagine it! I'm going to wait a few days and test again :)

  • Get a blood test, all at home pregnancy tests are not neccessarilly accurate. I was 5 1/2 months pregnant before the at home test would read positive for all 5 of my children even after the doctor did the blood tests and they were positive. If the next one isn't clear, then go get a blood test.
