It’s hard to tell because you’re not supposed to wait more than 5-10 mins. It might be an evap line, or it may have been a faint line after 5 mins and you didn’t wait long enough when you first looked.

Test again tomorrow morning and keep us posted!

what color was the line? pink or grey?  also what brand? frers aren’t known for  evaporation lines, but other brands are. having a longer lp than normal is a very good sign. (sorry for the lack of punctuation, I’m on my phone)

I think the window is as Lyndzo said, 5-10 minutes so it would be hard to tell when that line showed up. Does the line have color in it or is it grayish? If it has color, then I think that might be promising! You could also try to do a four hour hold today and see what happens!

Do you have a picture? That might help.

A four hour hold is where hold your pee for four hours and then  test(and don’t drink much either so as not to dilute it). It simulates FMU (first morning urine).

Blue dyes are extremely evil for popping up lines (blue ones, too, not just gray) shortly after the 10 minute mark, whether you’re pregnant or not, so I wouldn’t trust it. I either had a chemical pregnancy or was a victim of the blue dye false postives last month, but there was no real way of knowing, bc by the time I had gotten a blood test, there was nothing to show one way or the other. I did get a few blue dye postives WITHIN the 10 minute window (not just after), however, so I just don’t know what to think. You can even google blue dye false positives and read up on all the troubles women have with them. I’d test tomorrow morning with a pink dye test and/or digital and see what happens. Good luck! 🙂

Just keep in mind that digi’s aren’t necessarily as sensitive as the line tests.  Fingers crossed for tomorrow though!
