pregnancy tests question

I TOOK A PREGNANCY TEST AND IT SAID IF I PLUS SIGN SHOWS IT MEANS I AM PREGNANT.... WHAT IF THE PLUS SIGN IS SLIGHTLY VISiBLE... I SEE THE LINE BUT IT's REALLY SKINNy. It looks like a minus sign with a short skinny line going through the middle. Does that mean I am pregnant? I remember when I was pregnant with my son I had to take a blood test to see if I was pregnant because the store brand showed a negative...please help...ps. I took it last night and had a daycare and got hired at my new job today so didn't have time to go to the clinic.

  • to me that would be a positive result. you could get another test....one that says pregnant/not pregnant or with the 2 lines. maybe they would be more clear for you

  • Okay you do not say when the faint line appeared. If it was within the time frame the test says on the back then it likely means you are pregnant, but if you read it hours later then it is likely an evaporation line and you would need to take another test.

  • yea its just a faint line. ur more then likely pregnant and the hormone levels are very high but still high enough to pick up a positive. if u want a more accurate positive get a test done at your clinic
