Sorry if this is a dumb question. This is my first month TTC and am currently 9dpo. I noticed that when I took my First Response test, as the urine washed over the test, my “test” line got noticeably pretty dark, then faded away. After the test was complete, my line had faded away.
Is it normal for the line to appear dark, then fade away?

Oh… could this be moved to pregnancy or ttc boards? Sorry!

I’ve heard of the test line showing up later (after the indicated time for reading the test) and that being invalid, but not having the test line show up and then disappear. How long are you talking about here, with it fading away later?

I would do a 4 hour hold and then try again. Seems like maybe it was a faulty stick.

Do you mean as the dye was washing over where the test line would be? If so, that happens with every test. The first one I took I was like whoa and then realized it was still moving and there was no line in actuality (which I was very happy about at the time as we were just about to get married and my BCP was making me feel wonky).

@Elayne51: This happened to me once and it ended up being a faulty test. Can you test again? but this time you should use a FRER. GL and FX

Thanks so much for your replies! @astoriaK, that’s what I thought at first until the line intensified a bit. I’m thinking it may have been a faulty test like MrsR4ever.
I took another test and this one seemed normal. But unfortunately, it’s a BFN! Boooo! I’m just 10dpo today, so I’m still clinging to a little hope.
Thanks again for the replies!!
