  • if the faint line is on the spot for the positive, then you are pregnant. doesnt matter if faint or clear. As soon as it picks somethng up then there is 99.9% chance that you are pregnant. Those test (doesnt matter how much they cost or where you buy them) dont pick anything up if there isnt anything.

    negative results can be wrong though. ;)

  • I took a first response pregnancy test and the first test came out negative, the second test came out positive with a faint line. So, if a pregnancy test says negative, you could really be pregnant, it might take up to 5 tests to find out

  • if ur pregnancy hormone level is low, it might not pick up on a lot of it, but if the line is there, even faintly, ur pregnant. u could try to test first thing in the morning when ur hormone levels are strongest in ur urine

  • a line is a line. If there is a line, then your pregnant. Mine was really faint and it was a dollar store one. I went to Walgreens and bought a different one and took it the next day and it still was positive.

  • I took a dollar store test not expecting to be pregnant and got a very faint line. So I went out and bought a 2 pack of the digital kind and they both said "pregnant"
