Do HPT pick up HCG less than 5?


Hey everyone,
I had a mc back in July. My OB followed my HCG to negative and as of last week it was a 4 so they told me I was finally negative.

Yesterday I got a positive on a First Signal 88cent test from Walmart. I was excited until someone told me that she got a positive on one of those and her hcg was 2. She said that ANY HCG will cause it to show positive.

Is this true? Would an HCG of 4 show positive? I am including a pic but my camera is bad so it is blurry. The line showed up within 5 min and is purple in real life.

I have an appt for labs on thursday but am stressing out. Now I think that my remaining HCG is screwing me yet again.

The insert for the test should say what the hcg limit on it is. Good luck!

TY for the responses. The box says it picks up levels of 25 or above but I have seen people say they pick up as low as 10.

My tests are getting lighter though, so I think my urine was slow to catch up to the blood. I had to reschedule my labs though so IDK when I will get to go in. Waiting on AF on wed. then I will test if it doesnt come
