  • It's not accurate after 10 minutes. If you're unsure, re-test.

  • faint line = positive
    next test you said clearly positive

    yes accurate
    yes pregnant

  • oh, did you mean the same test was positive
    or a new test

    if same test, test again=use first pee in am even if test does not call for it

    but my test was very faint line
    and IMO, a line is a line = positive

  • The same test

  • If its the same test then it is not correct. After 10 minutes the test is no longer valid and any results read after the 10 minute mark are inaccurate. Wait a couple of days and take another test. Do it first thing in the morning as soon as you wake up. First morning pee is most potent and your more likely to get an accurate result than if you were to take it at night or in the middle of the day.

  • even if same test
    i am betting on positive
    the reaction in test only shows with pregnant
    false positives=never heard of
    false negative - yes-just not done right, or too early

    get another test, pee on it with first am pee
    when early on, line can be very faint,

    but line is a line

  • a positive means positive.. there are no false readings for a positive..

    the only falses are a false negative because the test might not pick up enough levels of the hormone to read positive.

  • you need to buy a new test. You should not reuse a test. They sell them for very cheap at the dollar store. Being certain you are pregnant is worth the $4 investment.

    Congratulations if you are pregnant!!
