Home Pregnancy test so pale it's barley visible - pregnant or no?

I have taken 4 New Choice dollar tree pregnancy tests. And 2 o had EXTREMELY faint second lines that could only be seen certain ways you turned it into the light,and the other two i didn't see any indication of a line. This was after 3 minutes of taking them and the lines diapered after 30 min. My husband and i have been trying to conceive recently. Two months ago i quit my birth control and we had sex during my ovulation days and (April 1-11). Then when it was time for my period to come it came two days early and was extremely light (only had to wear a liner) and brown in color but continued for a week. I was just wondering if i am pregnant or not? Because like i said the lines were EXTREMELY light (almost clear) but there.

  • most likely if there is a second line even if it's faint it means your pregnant, however because of the spotting I would wait a week and retest.

  • i think it's a case of it's there, or it isn't. it doesn't really matter if the line is dark or faint. but you could maybe retest later like babybugsmama said, or you could get a different test with different type of markings if you want. but imo you're pregnant. congrats!

  • Wait a few days and try a different brand. from what I remember, they say that even a faint line means you are pregnant. If it's one of those early tests though, the accuracy isn't as great.
