    tested at 3:15pm, peed on stick on CD11. this is what i got (looks like the one I got on C10 too). why are both lines soooo faint? I mean I thought the control/reference line should be really really dark and then either the surge line is fainter or the same color as the control/reference. help! what's going on?

    What test brand is that?

    Maybe you dipped it too long - absorbed too much water?

    Answer to - or + I would say thats a negative but sure we could spot a positive on a test result like that if you post any more.

    thanks wobbles :) it's clearblue easy "easy read". have you ever seen OPKs that faint before? i'm thinking it should be dark, like what the box shows (for the reference line)

    Oh I used them!

    Where did you buy from? & whats the end date on the little packets?

    I can't remember the display results being that faint. Hmmm

    expiry date is 2/2009. i wonder if it's because i'm not testing with SMU? time of day? hmmm
