I hate those tests too and honestly don’t have a great answer. At the point that it’s so light that you have to hold it up to see it, it might just be a shadow from the receptor dye area that’s in there – that can happen when the test gets wet. Tests darken at different rates for people.  I would say it’s inconclusive. Could you potentially wait a week and test again? You’re either really early on and would likely have a visible line by that point or will have gotten your period (I’m guessing that if you’ve been testing since Friday, you should be due soon). I’m sorry. I know it’s a head trip.

I would guess that’s an evap because you’re holding it up and not keeping it flat on a surface (so light is shining in through the back).

I know frer tests are expensive but blue dye tests are notorious for evaps! I’d say the pink internet cheapies are more reliable! Like PP because you are holding it up to light it doesnt look blue it looks more like a grey shadow! Keep testing though, every 2 days should double the amount of hormone, fingers crossed!

Buy some cheap pink dye tests from Amazon! Definitely see lines here, but not really dark enough that I would be super certain.
