    It doesn't mean anything, it's explained well here https://www.peeonastick.com/hpt/digitalsecret.html

    Digital tests do not work in the same way as standard test and there is almost always a line on those because they are also picking up lh hormone and that's in the body to varying degrees all through your cycle.

    I did a bit of research on digitals when I used one of these and opened it up and saw lines on a cycle that I deffo wasn't pregnant.

    Fingers crossed for you.

    I agree with Hayzeb, you shouldn't read these in the same way you read non digital tests. Maybe wait another couple of days and test again if no AF, good luck hun x

    hi hazeybe. kittykat and debbie--hope you are all well and thanks for the replies girls..........here goes

    my AF was due sat/ sun so I was horrified not to get any lines the past few days (except evaps!!) and still no AF.... so took my temp this morning and noticed a dip in it so I knew that wasnt good followed by negative tests and a sore stomach..then around 11am i got my AF so thats poor me out this month:( but at least i can have a few drinks over Christmas.....

    this was my first month trying after a miscarriage (d&C) and on my peak ovulation days I had a kidney infection/ cystitus -- so we couldnt try on those days but i tried to have hope that maybe i might still be pregnant and I thought i had loads of pregnancy symptoms (obviously in my head)

    aw well---im going to give it my best shot this month and definitely will be trying on the peak ovulation days:)

    good luck to you all and happy Christmas

    I definitely will not be looking at those lines on digitals again!
