  • I do see a second line, however, she's just going to have to retest in a couple of days.

  • 7 days is too early to get a positive. 4-5 days before her period is really the earliest any test will show up positive. At 7 days before, the fertilized egg is just reaching the uterus and implanting. It would take at least 2 days after implanting for hcg fromt he fertilized egg to get into her bloodstream/urine.

  • http://www.peeonastick.com/hpt/digitalsecret.html ......

    In simple terms, the digital test stick sucks up urine like a "regular" HPT. The test has a control line like every other HPT, to indicate the test worked properly. Then there is a "results zone" where a second line may or may not appear. Here's the difference: the second line may appear even if you are not pregnant, because the antibodies in the "results zone" are NOT testing ONLY for pregnancy hormone. Drumroll please. The "results zone" detects not only hCG (pregnancy hormone) . . . but also LH (luteinizing hormone.) LH is found in women's bodies almost all the time in some quantitity. (See the Fertility Info section for the nitty-gritty.) So, depending upon where you are in your cycle, how much LH your body produces normally (which can be thrown off by conditions like PCOS), you may see a second line even when there is no hCG ("Not Pregnant.")

  • If I were you since you ARE pregnant I would get the same test (a new one) pee on it and take it apart and see how many lines there are now .... IDK just an idea
