Faint positive? How faint?

How faint can a faint positive be? Also, how thin can the line be? I took a cvs brand ept test and got a visible very faint line. The line was think though. I waint a few days and retested with a Rexall (dollar general brand) ept test. And the line was so faint i could only see it under certain light. The line was also thin.

  • Positive is positive unless it s past the time recommended to wait.

    Instead of fretting now, wait a week or so and retest with urine from first thing in the morning.

  • Not to discourage you,But I hope you didn't hold the pregnancy test up in the air and look at it,If so there is a possibility you could have saw a positive line,Which wouldn't really be a positive.But I hope that you are and as the other ladies said Wait a week and re-test good luck and congrats if you are!!
