I can't tell on these, because when I click on them it's too small and when I zoom in it isn't as clear. I know what you mean though, they do seem to take ages for the dye to clear to a point you can actually reliably tell whether there's a line there. Some of the ICs I have used have said on the pack to wait until the dye clears to read them.
Hmmm... if you were both drunk then perhaps it wasn't as reliably protected as first thought. You may have missed you surge. If you have conceived, the OPK may be detecting hCG? I guess time will tell and if these are actual lines then you will see them progress in the following days

It states on pack to 'read after 10 mins' ( which seems odd) but doesnt seem to state an upper limit.

I'm guessing it means read at only ten minutes? But they aren't clear, perhaps there's more info online somewhere? Do they have a website?

It also says to look for a 'rose-pink coloured' line in the test area which is an odd thing to say too!

Heres what they sent me about faint lines : Good morning
I am very sorry you were unhappy with your purchase as highlighted by the negative feedback left on our Access Diagnostics website recently.
Can I draw you attention to our Blog on our website explaining why you may think these are false positives as below.
This is a very common question we get asked a lot as the tests have changed over the years and more tests are now ultra 10miu tests which are far more sensitive and they do need to show a DISTINCT line to indicate a positive result.

http://www.accessdiagnostics.co.uk/acatalog/FAQ-1.html
There is a faint line on my pregnancy test, am I pregnant ?

If the Test line is only just there or really faint the test may not be positive. Most modern test are so sensitive that they will give a really clear strong colour Test line as soon as there is hcg at 10miu and above.

A positive test will be crystal clear with a strong T line under the control line. Do not come back to a test later as any test * ** *line forming after the correct read time is not an accurate result. Wait at least 24 hours and repeat the test, making sure to use a first morning void, and hopefully the line will be stronger and appear sooner the following day.

I wrote back asking specifically about the time limit and colour!

Okay I just read the link you posted and your post. Based on those, they are basically saying "a very faint line" = "negative". Which is good to know. It sounds like you will always get faint lines with this company...
