  • Take another test or call your doctor.

  • I would take another just to be sure, but it sounds like a positive test to me.

  • why dont you buy a test that clear! one that says pregnant or nor pregnant. Theres no confusion with the lines. But they say even if the second line is just lighter its still means you pregnant. Maybe you are. When I got pregnant I got my period, but only really light and only for a day or so.

  • I would take even another one, and do it in the morning right after you wake up, could be that you had implantation bleeding and not a period especially if it was a really light period. Generally if two lines show up it means your pregnant, false positives are really really really uncommon. You may not have had enough hormone in the second test, thats why its best to take a test during your first pee in the morning.

  • Take another test using first morning urine. Secondly, if you read the test after the time limit, it could look faintly positive. If the test appears positive, see your doctor. Good luck.

  • I would still consider seeing a doctor to make sure that the tests were not a fail. False positives are very very rare.
