I need help with test lines!
Took a blue dye test tonight which showed the faintest of blue lines. I accept that even faint lines mean pregnsbcy, HOWEVER my line disappeared a matter of minutes later!
The test said to read results in 1 minute, which is when I saw the super faint line. But I'm confused about the result now as the line disappeared later.
Has this happened to anyone, and what did it mean?

Hello, it could be a faulty test. Where are you in your cycle? If youve missed a period it may be worth repeating with first morning wee. Or if not yet missed a period then to wait a few days after it was due. Hope this helps.

thank you for that. Really helped settle my mind. I done this test this am which showed negative. Went work and come home to 2 lines? Very faint but looks pink to me? What is you're thoughts? Thank you.

Roy, im well aware that this is an old thread, but just wanted to add my fervent thanks to those below! So thanks for taking the time to write that post (I did read every bit!), and allay our fears somewhat. In the year that you wrote it, I started ttc and have been doing so ever since with no success. I'm currently nearing the end of my IVF month off, gearing up for a FET, and recieved my very first BFP (naturally!) yesterday morning. It only turned a pretty obvious blue an hour later, so after all these years I was certainly doubting! I actually found a link to this page, to your comment specifically, from another website! So just wanted to let you know that even these few years later, your time and words have helped! Blessings

I'm new to the site. wed I was having painf cramps and I was feeling lightheaded. I ended up going to the er bec I almost passed out. I found out that I was about 3-4 weeks pregnant they did 3 test then a blood test whitch all came back positI've. Sat i started spooning a dark red and it's barely visible on my sanitary napki, but more presen when I wipe . I went to the doctors on Monday and they took a pregnancy test and it came back negative. They said I'm having a miscarriage. The bleeding is bar noticeable 3 days later. Is this normal for a miscarriage

Hi - hoping someone could help me as I am very confused. I did one test, CB last Monday, first result was negative - so I put it in the bin, curiosity got to me next morning and blue line had appeared - positive. I read that this could be due to the low levels or pregnancy hormones, so I decided to wait a while and test again. I tested yesterday, 2 CB tests, 6 days later and both came up negative. From reading what Roy has said though the first test - as it was a blue line means that it must be positive? I also took a CB digital today and it came back as ‘Not pregnant’ I am on the pill - and have taken 2 packs back to back so, still have 3 days left so not sure when my period would have been due. The reason I tested was I had been pregnant 10 years ago (did not carry to full term) and the symptoms I have been feeling are the same as back then. Any help is appreciated. I will be seeing the doctor in 2 days - but that may still be too early to tell?

Hi there. Thank you so much for your helpful explanation over hpt's. However, as much as I understand all you wrote, and the fact that this is an old thread, I'm hoping if you see this post you'll be able to help meeting please? Ok so I have always had a very regular menstral life but I am now one week late for my SECOND missed period. I have several pregnancy symptoms and have taken many pregnancy tests which were all negative.... And here's where I need advice - my latest hpt showed positive line as soon as the pee appeared from the tip and stayed all the way UNTIL the window went from fully pink to white. Then the test line vanished. It stayed about 2 mins I guess. So I get you say test assay only turns pink with contact from hcg but does that still stand if the pink line disappeared as soon as the window cleared to white once urine had passed across the window? Am i likely to be pregnant? Thanks :-)

Hi missie do you have an update?? Have you retested or called a doctor for blood test?? You having many symptoms??
Im currently 10 days over af due date and always on time or a day after.. i have done 5 tests in total a mix of pink and blue dye, two blue showed positive after an hour of returning (as cant help a peek after) and a pink dye showed up on an afternoon wee (after an hour) which to me was a lot darker wee than a morning one and two negatives on pink 1st morning wee. One of these threads said to try wee between 10am and 2pm (which the pink positive was) attached pic below.. im going to go on a hunt for a super sensitive one as after reading detail instructions the level of hcg that has to be in your body to detect is quiet a bit! ( And will never forget over 11yrs ago when i came over very faint at work and nearly collapsed , i was rushed to hospital and they did a test and was negative but then two weeks later i was 9 weeks pregnant!! So ment hospital test was wrong! ) i think everyones body is different and hcg levels produce as much as they want to! That Post from roy is very reassuring but then wouldnt want to get hopes up (easier said than done) i think i have a few symptoms of pregnancy.. late, headaches, metalic taste, a cold, discharge, weird dreams, temp when waking up, cramps to left of tummy, sore nipples and itchy boobs.. gag reflex is starting to kick in, mood swings, fatigue.. but when getting positives and negatives its very confusing! I do have docs appointment for blood tests but after hospital got it wrong all them years ago im worried of outcome.. going to go look for the most sensitive hcg test this morning at shops to do an afternoon test to see what comes up!.. fingers crossed and baby dust to us all... xx

Hi Brooks baby. Hmmmm update....ok so i will update in a min but first i wanna say that the pics are definitely positive tests ok. No doubt. Don't get your hopes up hun just in case due to your previous experience BUT even though you've had negative test/strip after, I'm pretty sure the tests (negs) may have been less sensitive to hcg....did you use a different brand for the negs? The photos show a decent positive and in order to show up like that you must have hcg...congrats hunni. My update - well I ended up a week and a half late for my SECOND missed period and had symptoms that were actually stronger than my 2 children previously. Yet after the weird positive test I kept getting neg tests and it was bugging me badly. When I tell you this, please DON'T FREAK out hun ok. In the end I had horrible pains and blood was everywhere and I went to A&E knowing what I was going to be told....I miscarried twins at 9 weeks. The actual babies came out in hospital. I was told that many women with some or all neg tests that end up pregnant are expecting twins...apparently the hcg is sometimes too high to show (I knr wtf lol). BUT PLEASE LISTEN to the next bit ok ☺. Your test is positive 100%. With my weird positive test it was dodgy from the start. Hard to explain but basically ya know when the pee starts running up the test and I'd you are one of the lucky ones to who get a dark line straight away even b4 the pee reaches the control line? Well with mine the pee was running over the screen and a Faint but definitely there line showed up ok. Gut instinct told me not to start yelling wahoo with 🤗 just yet. Once the pink dye had nearly gone white leaving the end result, the positive line had gone. Also referring to your positive, they tell you not to read the result after 10 mins even though for most women thats impossible lol. Because of my symptoms, and the fact that my periods are generally clockwork, I kinda 90% knew I was pregnant but the doubts and confusion after that with the neg tests was a living hell cus hubby and I are desperate for a 3rd baby. I SERIOUSLY doubt that's what's happening to you hun because my test was so strange. Did your line from the test in your pic vanish? Is that what you said? If so, I would try to relax because those cheap you tests (which I always use myself) have been known to do that to on so many of them. I totally understand your stressed and fear the blood work incase you have a repeat performance, life is cruel at times. All I can say is 2 things now hun, 1st, your pics are positive and I would love to day a big congrats and send sticky bean prayers. And 2nd, what will be will be sadly. I really don't wanna get your hopes up by saying your deffo expecting ok, but it kinda looks like you are tbh. If I were you I'd try (yeah right lol, I freaked the whole time too) to relax if poss cus if there is a little bean in there stress can cause a mc. If it turns out that you're not pregnant, or anything else happens I'm truly sorry and feel free to message me if you wanna sound off at someone you don't know. Good luck, lots of baby dust and it does look promising for you ☺xx

Ohhh missie im so so sorry to hear that :'( love and thoughts to you. Can't imagine what you must be feeling. So sorry but am truly grateful on you response. But truly love and thoughts sent to you xxx
Just took another one b4 tea when came home from work mid stream with 6hrs without peeing and this is what i got... dont know if visable on pic but there is yet another faint line!! With a different make of test.. im wondering if hcg level is just low in my body again and very weird only get results on an afternoon not 1st thing on morning.. as got a negative this morning with a different test ( think my wardrobe is packed out with different tests lol) ive got doctors blood test in morning so will see what that brings xxx
08/03/2018 at 16:11
Hiya brooksbaby....let me know how you get on with your blood test ok. That's deffo a positive test in the pic...congrats🤗. I'm really hoping you get the results you need/want from the bloods. I really am baffled as to why you are getting negative tests as well as positive ones 🤔. But what I do know is tests don't go that positive UNLESS they detect hcg so even though you're getting negatives at certain times of day and night, you appear to be pregnant. Obviously I can't and WONT tell ya I know for sure cus that's gonna be a killer if you're not. But in all honesty it genuinely does look that way. And I really hope you are. Take it easy and let me know what the outcome of the bloods are 😎 xx

Morning missie.. well went to docs yesterday and he thinks all symptoms are pregnancy related so have took urine sample in today but got quite emotional so nurse took bloods to test hcg levels. They are hoping that the results come back today if not it will be monday morning but they know how much it is affecting me so are keeping an eye out today if they come back. Its just the wondering and not knowing whats going on.. i explained that i do smoke and because of my airport career i do drink energy drinks and that know the harm it could cause if i am.. will keep you posted and thank you for been there for me xxx
