I need some help. I took a first response early pregnancy test yesterday afternoon and there was a barely visible second line. It was so light that I could have imagined it. It looked like an evap but during the correct time frame. This morning I took a clear blue digital test and it says negative. I am now 2 days late. What are your thoughts?

I've read a lot about clear blue not being so sensitive. Try another test in a day or so time, could still be a little early

Thank you, I will try Saturday morning. I was hoping someone could relate. The waiting is terrible!

I had some faint tests too, can relate to that. My situation has got quite a lot more complex since where I've had faint positives, barely visable and negatives including a negative blood test. My doctor dismissed my pregnancy tests as negative because they were faint.
Will yours show up in a photo you could upload to here?
I missed a period then had bleeding when it came to my next. Some days I test and think I can see a line other days not. I'm waiting to go for a scan as my doctor wants to check for polycystic ovaries. A few of my hormone levels weren't what they should of been.
Do do you have any symptoms?
I hated the wait so I bought a bag of 50 pregnancy tests of ebay for £3.69 now I can test until my hearts content at that price. I find it helps with the disappointment as when I wait there is more of a build up and expectation
this was one of my faint tests the doctor dismissed

I do have some symptoms but not all of them. My breasts are tender (not unusual for me before I start my period) and my period is now 3 days late. Unfortunately I didn't think to take a picture of the test because I was frustrated with not knowing if it was positive or negative but mine looked a lot like yours. All of the digital ones come up negative though. I plan to take another test in the morning to see if the same thing happens or if it's darker. Depending on the results and how I feel, I might make an appointment with my doctor to be safe.
You said your doctor is checking you for polycystic ovaries, can that cause you to get faint positives?
I have had a lot of problems in the last year. I got diagnosed with cervical cancer and had several surgeries to remove the cancer. My family has a history of pcos and endrometriosis. I have not been tested for those though.
Thanks for your response!

No pcos and faint positives are unrelated. He was looking at pcos because I missed my period originally and didn't believe I was pregnant. Then from blood test he said some of my hormone levels were high, 1 of which was prolactin.
i took my tests with me to the second appointment, he glanced at them and said to him they were negative. I always thought a line was a positive especially if it has colour and thickness (they say Evaps are grey from what I've read) I don't know, it's like a minefield.
