  • It may be. You may not have enough of the HCG hormone yet. But if the line is there, you're pregnant.

  • Just not enough of the hormone in the urine to turn it to a dark line, but any line means positive! I didnt get a positive on my last pregnancy test until a few days after my period was due. Good luck!

  • it doesn't matter the lightness or darkness of the lines. it just matters the result (idk if you have the one line vs. two or the plus, but either way it's not about the darkness of the line)

  • doesn't matter... light lines or dark lines... if you see them thats your answer.. it could either be the brand of test or the amount of pregnancy homrmones found in your urine... try a different brand and take it first thing in the morning... good luck

  • Some positive tests lines are just not as dark as the control lines,it doesn't mean anything other than you may be JUST prego and not alot of HCG is flowing ;)

  • Could be. Have you tried using first morning urine? Either way it doesn't matter, if their is a line there that indicates positive test then you are pregnant! Congrats!!
