If you looked at it after the 10 minute mark then I wouldn’t trust it. It could be an evap line. Just take another one and stare at it for the whole time limit 🙂

I got a super faint line at 10dpo. Try again tomorrow with FMU!

Is the line pink or does it look grey-ish? If it has color, it is most likely not an evap.

Mine turned positive after 10 minutes a couple of weeks ago.  BFN.  🙁

@jules28:  Unless it’s gray line it could be a positive. If the second line is a pink line I would retest and double check!


This is usually what an evap looks like

That happened to me, and guess what? I was about 2 or three weeks pregnant.

Did you use FMU?  If you saw a faint line without FMU/holding your pee for a few hours, I’d think you might get a more accurate result tomorrow morning.  Good luck!

It could be positive, but I’d wait to test again. Use FMU either tomorrow at 11DPO or at 12DPO. if that line is darker, then you will know you’re pregnant.

I would test in the morning at 11dpo amd watch it closely – as well as the clock – to make sure it is a real positive and not an evap.  Can you post a picture of it on here so we can weigh in?

Yes, maybe post a pic here and my advice will be to test tomorrow first thing in the morning. Good luck!
