Do i need to not drink aswell so i dont dilute it? I know i SHOULD wait until tomorrow......but we all know that aint going to happen!!!
I used the one-step one first thing in morning at 10dpo and got superfaint, couldnt wait too long and done another at 4pm - superfaint but slightly darker.

Try again tonight -get out the house and away from the tests and do one tonight after dinner!

Good luck!

Well i didnt do any wees or had any drinks for about 4 hrs and just took two dip tests and BFN will take another in the morning but doesnt look like a positive now as if it was a positive surely it would still show something as its a little bit more time for the levels to increase and also concentrated wee?

Yeah I think I see it too! I was confused tho, because Iw asnt looking for the line so close to the control line. But if they are close, then Id say I see it! Can you do another one?

I see the line AND it's pink but because it came up after 5 mins it COULD be an evap. I say this because it's happened to me before with ICs. Take another one and this time, time it...also, if there's a line then back it up with FRER! I really hope it's a BFP!

Hi, I keep reading about the evap...but not sure what this means exactly...

can an evap be the same colour as you would expect the 'pos' line to be? As this has happened to me.... I had 4 pos early tets but docs done a blood test and was negative. Im soooo confused with these tests now - I always thought it was impossible to get a pos reading if you are not preg, but the more i read through this site, the more women you hear talk about getting these fake positives! Its crazy!

How do you now if its an evap? what colour is an evap?

They aren't false positives, they are evaps. A fake positive is a line that has color but there is no HCG in the girls urine. It's usually if a woman takes medications for ovulation or if the woman is pre-menopausal. False positives are very rare but CAN happen.

An evap line is a line that is either gray, white or just an indentation line. Some DO have color though, depending on the HPT brand. Dollar store tests and blue dye tests are known for giving colored evaps and even within the time limit.

If you got a line that is the same color as the control line, be it faint or strong, and it came up within the time limit, and it is NOT a blue dye test OR a dollar test, then I'd say trust it to be a safe BFP. I'm a POAS-holic so I test more than once just to be sure. And I always try different pink dye brands (excluding $ tests!).

And there's a trick with $ tests. Once you take the test and 10 mins has passed you can actually see the test dry up. Once that happens you'll see a grayish line or an indentation line develop where the Test line would've been and you can clearly see it's an evap. The best way to make this process happen faster is by opening up the casing and letting air hit the $ test. Of course, AFTER you got your result.

ahhh, I see....that does make sense. And yes, my tests were the blue control... i cant believe ive been had! (as after using the first 2....i then had to go buy another 2 as well...) I'm in england, they cost about 10-12 GBP for a 2 pack!

Even my doctor thought it was positive, but he then used a pink standard test which showed clearly a neg...plus a blood result to make sure.

ok, cool, thanks for that info, i will most certainly only buy the pink testers from now on!

You're welcome I don't trust blue dye tests at all and they're expensive here in the US too!! I'd rather stick to First Response!!

Good luck to you!!
