  • wait another week or so then take a different test not from the dollar store. I had light bleeding the first month I was pregnant & am now 8 months along.

  • Try reading the insert that comes with the test. The results get messed up after a certain amount of time. No matter what prego-test you take, you should follow up a few days to a week later. And take it in the morning, before you use the restroom for the first time. The hormones are more concentrated then, and you're more likely to get an accurate result if you are pregnant.

    NEVER trust a pregnancy test that has been sitting out for an hour! Take the test, wait the allotted amount of time prior to looking at the results, and then that's it. I used dollar store tests, and they were accurate. heck, they all IMMEDIATELY has positive results. Took them in the morning: two tests were 2 days and 5 days before missed period, and three were day of missed period and 3 and 7 days later.

  • It is quite possible to have it be positive, but not enough hormones in the system yet. I always do mine first thing in the morning b/c that is when it is more concentrated. I would wait a few more days and retest. You can use another dollar store test. There is no need to waste money on a more expensive one you are just paying for the name anyway. I wish you luck.

  • the $ store tests I've used always showed the correct results like as soon as it became soaked.
    and the ones that were positive, still are and they are from october (kept one, for my baby's keepsake box). the negatives, im sure are still negative but they are in the trash.
    if it took a LONG time to come up with a faint line, i wouldn't rely on that. take another one.
