Hey, I was wondering if someone could help me! I'm not sure if this is the area to be posting this or not but I hope someone can help me anyway.
Me and OH have been TTC for just a month now. I'm pretty sure I'm pregnant so even though I have to wait another 10 days to do a test, I did one a few hours ago just to see what it would say. It came up as two very pale pink lines meaning positive, but about 20 seconds later the second line started to get darker, eventually the first pink line faded and just one line showed up. What does this mean? I've done pregnancy tests before and this has never happened, just one red line, never two pink then one fades away. Has anyone else had something similar? Or can anyone please help me with what it means? I have to wait ten days until the day of my missed period so is it maybe just a little bit too early? I'm so confused!
First, 10 days before your missed period is wayyy to early to test accurately, so don't get discouraged by your negative test today. And yes a "ghost line" or disappearing positive is a negative test. I actually had the same thing happen on my test this morning, but if you watch closely you can actually watch the "pink line" kind of stale mate where your test line could be, before moving up the test strip to the control line, it is common and one reason why we should keep ourselves from looking at our tests before AND after the time limit. Good Luck!!!
This happened to me today. I took it with ic and looked at it two minutes later it was stock white then two minutes later still within 5-6 minute time a pink line appeared then faded into the control line so there is the control line and a pink line almost side by side the control line. this is a case of a very bad evap line.
I had that happen to me - they were positive for a few minutes and then faded to negative within the 10 minute time limit. I was (am) pregnant and I think it was just because of the weak hormones. I used clear blue.
It's normal, my clearblue showed up within less than a minute and then i snapped a photo and left it in the toilet.
After 8 hours or so when I returned home from work, it showed BFN.
I admit it did freak me out abit but then i tested strong BFP this morning and i had a string of BFPs before this too.
I guess i'm just going nuts and trying to use up all of my test kits for now each morning.
I had this happen yesterday sometimes as the dye is moving across the antibody strip it can seem like a bfp is trying to show up but then once the dye is all the way across it is negative .I believe its to be considered negative because a true BFP should not disappear( well with the exception of the digital which is just the battery dying). http://www.peeonastick.com/issues.html
