Were the other tests early results test as well? Every test out there has different sensitivities to detect hcg levels. How late are you? Just bc it’s a faint line doesn’t mean it’s not positive and just bc others have gotten a positive then not be pregnant doesn’t mean you are following the same fate. Just trying to give you some hope..:) Sometimes it can appear as a “false +” if one tests too early then actually goes on to have a chemical pregnancy and receive their period meaning it didn’t fully implant or other issues.

That’s such a hard thing to deal with….I’ve never heard of false positives, but have read that there can be an evaporation line that shows up in the test window…maybe this is what you were seeing?  Did you wait a longer period of time to view the results?

Could you go and buy other brand tests to test with?

ETA: Planned Parenthood will provide free pregnancy tests if you have one near you (saves you some money).

Maybe call your doc and ask for a blood test to confirm either way?  Uusally, this can be done same day.  You go in and get the labs done and can find out the results later in the day.

@MaggieGirl: I really hope this is a positive for you.

Last month I had an evap line on a cheepy internet strip.  It sucks!

Sounds like a chemical pregnancy, maybe??

Best of luck to you!

By The Way, Target brand generic pregnancy tests SUCK!  I’ve purchased 2 boxes on 2 different occasions and one of them was always faulty – as in blank screen.  If you’re looking for a deal, Target.com has a coupon section and every once in a while they have a $2 off coupon for First Response tests, and the First Response website itself gives away $2 coupons.  Target lets you stack one Target coupon and 1 manufacturer coupon, so that would be a total of $4.00 off.

ellie23:  1) this post is 3 years old

2) you have to look at a test during the window (usually within 5 minutes of taking the test. The directions would tell you how long). Two weeks later is CERTAINLY past that window and thus the test is not valid. 

3) why do you still have a negative pregnancy test from 2 weeks ago???!!
