hpt question

Ive taken many test ( Lord knows!!!) but today when I went to read the results the whole screen had a pink smear like thing across it. You could still read the test line but see that there was no positive line. Can I consider it neg or should I retest? Thanks Mamas!!!!!

  • It's most likely a negative, but if you're not sure, retest.

  • ya i have had that happen b4- sometimes its a bad batch of tests. You need to do a different one (preferably a diff brand that way your not wasting your $$$$ if its from the same batch). GL!

  • I always buy answer brand. They are a lot cheaper and one of the more sensative tests out there. I have not gotten the smear with Answer that I have with other brands. But to answer your initial question... I think you got a bad test.
