Was your period normal? Same length and heaviness of flow? How long after the test was taken did you take the pic?

I do see a faint line.

i see it, but it’s odd it came after your period unless it wasn’t actually a period.

Sometimes you can see a faint “line” where the chemical (or whatever they use) is on the strip where the positive line usually appears. Maybe that’s what this is?

I see a line, maybe it was implantation bleeding?

I had a line like that when I was pregnant. I think you are. It was so faint, barely visible. Turned out I was ‘just’ pregnant

Get an FRER and test again. Methinks you are pregnant

I see a faint line as well. Wait a few days to a week and try again and hopefully it’ll be darker.

Wannabemamma:  I definitely see a line. This happened to me this month too. I had a period and then a couple days later had a + test. It was light on a cheapie and the FRER was super dark. Not to worry you but it ended in a miscarriage (or possibly AF was the MC.) I would take a FRER and see if it shows + and if so see if your dr will do blood tests for a few days to make sure your levels are going up.

Wannabemamma:  You poor thing. Is this the only testing you did? I would say there’s a chance you had a chemical pregnancy which is a very early loss. They are actually extremely common. I’m sorry it’s happening. It can be very stessful.

Wannabemamma:  I’m so sorry to hear that. It sounds like it might have been an early loss to me too. That first “period” might have been implantation bleeding and/or spotting from hormones, something non-viable, etc. 

It’s so disappointing when stuff like this happens. It might be worth talking to your doctor about it just to make sure all is well now.

You might have had a chemical pregnancy or a very early loss. I’m sorry.  🙁 FX for a sticky baby!!
