HPT faint+ or Evap?

I couldn't really see the line until the test dried and I took it apart. Im only like 12 DPO if I am preg. Im afraid I am imagining things... Also, I am still "spotting" (after what I think was implantation about 5 days ago) off and on, and am getting worried. any suggestions?


Thanks!

  • If you had to take it apart, it might be your imagination. A positive would show a distinct line, even if faint it would be there, and you wouldn't have to guess.

  • It is so hard to tell. I would test again with a digital and another regular and then go from there.

  • Try your first morning pee! You'll get a better result. And don't drink a ton to make yourself pee, it can water down hormones in the urine. Good luck.

  • Follow the directions on the box, if it says don't read it after X amount of time... Don't read it.. Also you shouldn't have to take a test apart.. Wait until you have missed your period and then test with your first morning urine...

  • That's not an evaporation line. That s indeed a positive.

  • any idea about the spotting... I haven't ever had this much "implantation" spotting before. Just a little pink on the TP about 1-2x a day for 3-4 days

  • No, its lighter because there is only a small amount of hormone. That's def positive.
