    Can a pregnancy test look different after a few days? I took two different tests a week or so ago and they looked negative. I had what im assuming was my period, started off as brown stringy discharge the first two days then with a day and a half of light bleeding, then stopped. This was light for what it usually is, but still pink blood. Well The tests had been pushed aside and got hidden under my jewelry box, and i just found them and this is what they look like now. Is it possible that it took the test longer to show up, or does this kind of thing normally happen after a test is taken and its been a few days? Kinda freaky.

    you can't really rely on a test that has dried like that....there's a definite line and I will say when I had real faint positives the longer they sat the darker the lines got, but I wouldn't go by it as a positive after sitting that long. Best thing would be to just take a new test, if they did happen to be faint positives a week or so ago they would be for sure positives now :flower:

    Definitely take another. Those could just be some really mean evaps, but it could have been an early bfp. Good luck!

    I posted a thread a while ago with an FRER evap that developed over a couple of days similar to that. Basically, any result after the timeframe, can't be considered accurate.

    I found a test in my bathroom cupboard from months ago that looks like that, I think it's probably just the way it's dried, sorry Hun x
