I had a chemical where my tests were progressing then started to fade then af arrived then I tested again a few days later and the test was more positive than before and they faded then were darker for a few days after af stopped. Had to get a beta to make sure what was happening but tests did fade to nothing eventually.
I have had a few chemicals and this was the only one this happened with though, the others my tests faded away to nothing before af arrived
I cant even say with assurity that it's a chemical. In limbo for at least the next few days.

Ah! I was wondering if there was a bad batch of frer's out at the minute. I've been getting very faint lines on other brands of test's as well. I have since got another line on a different brand of test this evening.

Open test and see if line is pink, if it is its no indent.
Hope its a lovely pink line
i've said above that the line has a hue of pink to it.

The issue is why would I be getting lines if I am on cycle day 4.

Editing to add: sorry if that comes across as being harsh. It's not meant with any malice. Currently flickering between responding to you all here and work (rushing)

Can you do like a line up of your tests? I found that helpful. I know it sounds silly, but seeing them in a single photo lined up made it easier to see if there was progression there rather than looking at a fresh test and going back over photos or comparing to a dry test.
The only reason I can think of you seeing progression now, during what you thought to be af, is that it isn't actually af and it's implantation or one of those unexplainable bleeds during early pregnancy. It could be a chemical but I would have thought it would be the other way round with tests rather than what you're seeing, worst case could be ectopic if they're unusually slow to progress, but even then there have been plenty of women with slow to progress tests, with bleeds that have been healthy pregnancies. I think if you're still getting lines maybe seeing your doctor would help, they can do betas to have a clearer idea of what's happening

Amanzing response! Breaks down the multiple technicalities with this ttc/pregnancy lark.

Off I go to obssess over all of my tests. Line eye incoming!

Thanks again!

What I did with my tests was screenshot them from when I first saw anything on them until the most recent (so fresh tests), then put them together using a photo collage app then wrote the dpo on each test. In my case with my lines then no lines then lines, I started with clear lines which got darker, then lighter, then af arrived and they were barely visible, then a few days later they were dark again. They kept doing this so I was worrying about ectopic which is why I got a beta done. This returned at <0 so I knew then it was a chemical and a matter of time until my tests went negative.
If yours are progressing from nothing, and not going backwards and forwards, then there's probably a viable pregnancy there but I would get betas done to make sure things are ok, if they are slowly progressing especially.
I had bleeds with all my babies, it varied from light spotting to slightly more prominent bleeding, but they were fine. With my mc further along the spotting turned into bleeding and was a little longer than a period with some hefty cramps which felt more like mild contractions than af cramps and the bleeding was significantly heavier. My chemicals have been different to af, most having a day of heavy bleeding but then turning to little more than spotting and shorter. But with the one exception all saw my tests fade to nothing and stay that way before af arrived

Yes it's in the back of my mind. If I experience any pain (Especially shoulder), i'm going straight in. Thanks

Thanks. I've just booked in for blood tests and a gp's phone consultation on Monday. That's when i'll know what's going on.

Thanks again
