still seeing faint lines on day of missed period!?


Hi, can someone please help me....

AF was expected today and I figured by now the lines would have gotten darker. I have been seeing very faint positive lines for the past 3 days. Does this mean I miscarried??

It may just be you're still in very early pregnancy and the HCG levels haven't become strong enough to appear darker yet. And it can also depend on the sensitivity of the test. If you are definately getting pink lines within the time frame and you are worried about it maybe duck into the doctors and get a blood test to confirm. Try to think positive :-)

If your still seeing a line and you have no AF then im sure everythings fine, some people dont get darker lines until a few days after AF was due, some people dont get any lines atall until after AF due.

is it the ic's you are using?

I got a faint line on these at 11dpo and a strong line on a frer - only yesterday at 18dpo did my ic start to get darker and even now it is still not as dark as the control line.

I wouldn't worry, a line is a line hunny!

Congratulations xxx

I have read that the sensitivity can vary within each box...even with the pricier tests. So it may just not be picking up the increase, or like they said, you may just be really early on. If you miscarried, you probably would have noticed what appeared to be AF coming on anyway.

Good luck!!!

3 Days is not a very long period and therefore the lines would probably not have that much of a difference between them. The only way to see it would be to compare them side by side. I suggest retesting in about 2-3 days. If still not darker you could either wait to see what happens or contact a doctor. You could also contact a doctor right now and he could do hcg bloodwork, you would have to return 2 days + later to see if the level double with another test. Hopes this helps.
