I did a total of 18 home tests (lets just say I wasn't expecting it!!) and used every make and model I could find, what they all have in common is the instructions all say to read the result within 10 minutes or so then discard. The chemical reactions don't stop when the line turns up so they can dissappear or lines appear after a while - why shouldn't go back to a negative test after hours - it's called an 'evaporation line' apparently! Congrats and don't worry about it - ask your GP for a blood test if you get worried, my gp did a blood test for me despite looking at me as though I was insane when I admitted how many tests i'd bought!
Good luck, early days but enjoy the moments.
Hi. My periods are irregular, and the last 3 have been a 19 day cycle. It's now day 31 and nothing so I took a pregnancy test earlier today. The 1st test line showed up dark purple (positive) and the control line was very faint, but just visible. This was read after 5 minutes as stated on the test. After 8 minutes, the positive line had disappeared and the control (negative) line was more visible. Am I pregnant? I am trying to conceive, have had strange cramping for the last 9 days now, but no period, Just a slight light brown discharge occasionally.
