I’m a regular user posting under a pseudonym. I just got married a few months ago and now I’m about 2 weeks late for my period! I took a test last week with the hubs, but they were negative.
I took a test again this morning and it seemed negative, but my pregnant friend told me to keep the test because sometimes they dry with a line. Sure enough, when I took it out again this afternoon there was a faint blue line. (see pic)
I know the tests say not to read after 10 minutes, but I also know you can’t get a positive unless you’re pregnant. The only question si whether this is a faint positive or whether it’s what they call an “evaporation line.” I know this isn’t a pregnancy board, but i’m looking for some opinions. HELP!

Your pic didn’t post, but regardless I’d go to the doctor and get a definitive yes or no.

I would just go to the doctor and get a pregnancy test in the office. Takes about 5 minutes and then you’ll be sure.

I would say go see a doctor and put your mind at ease! Are you unusually stresses or has your diet changed drastically lately? It could just be a fluke…best thing to do is go see a doctor!

There’s a reason they tell you not to read it after 10min- an evaporation line isn’t the same as a positive line.
I voted to call the doctor.

Call the doctor, and also do it again if it will make you feel better for the immediate future.

Do another one and then go to the doctor, I say!

I agree… If it were me, I’d get a new test to take tonight (because I would be so anxious) and then see if I could make an appointment with my doc for tomorrow, just to be sure.

Take another test tomorrow morning (when your urine is concentrated) and if it’s still sketchy then go visit your doctor!

That is likely an evaporation line if you waited several hours to take that pic.
Take another test in a few days in the morning. The doctors just do a urine screen in the office usually, so you can do the same thing at home. Doctors can order a blood test, but most will just run the urine test.
It is possible to have false negatives, but the pregnancy tests we have today are pretty accurate (they have different sensitivity levels though, so you can read positive earlier with some tests than others)

if you read it after the time youre supposed to, its no longer accurate-all of them will develop a line hours later.

Maybe try a digital test that says “yes” or “no”!

They test the levels of your Follicale Stimulating Hormone. (FSH) it may be too early for the tests to detect high enough levels. I am not sure what your insurance situation is you could go get a blood test or wait 5-7 days and take another pee test.
