  • usually a faint + is still a + (not sure if you're the one who asked this b4) but i had the same prob with a line test. just got a digital where it said preg or not preg. no mistaking it then lol

  • There will always eventually be a faint line on a negative test, that's why the box states to NOT read it after ten's called an evaporation line. If the line wasn't there when it was supposed to be (3-5 minutes after taking it) and it appeared later, that is an evaporation line!!!

  • Don't do a dollar store tests. I had some that were positive (3 yrs ago) and they were really faint and I've had some over the years that had lines and were negative. Wait until youmiss your period and go for a digital.

    OR a First Response. I tested at 10dpo and got a faint positive. I am almost 10 weeks now!

  • You dont read it after 10 min. that is the maximum time. Read the directions. If it showed "negative" in that 10 min. time then that is what it is. negative.
