Why is it so light?

I'm 7 weeks pregnant and took a pregnancy test today and It was lighter than when I took one at 4 weeks? Should I be worried?

  • The color is not supposed to matter. A positive line is a positive line. If you're concerned about a drop in your hcg, ask for a blood draw at your first prenatal visit. Good luck!

  • No it could be the different test if you did it at a different time of day what you had to drink there are alot of things that make them accurate and not so accurate.

  • Diluted urine sample. Tests should always be done first thing in the am before you drink anything.
