Pregnancy test confusion

(28 Posts)

Hi! Would love some advice on this! Just taken a pregnancy test, the instructions on the box are that a single line in the test window means positive. However on the box the line is vertical. There was a clear vertical line in the control window but a faint horizontal line in the test window! So confused! Have attached a photo!

I think on the plastic stick on the left there's a pic of a horizontal line? Hard to see it clearly on the pic but if that's what it is then it's a positive. Good clear line too - tentative congrats!

Is that not the T for test window you're seeing?

No idea, OP - but I would assume positive! Hope the next test follows its own instructions!

ohnonotanother1 the horizontal line you see is actually the letter 'T'

pix18 I would try another test. Do you have another?

Test again, that is very odd.

I think it might be a faulty test I'm afraid...definitely test again, and good luck!

The line should be vertical so you should definitely do another test. Unless there is also a vertical line (which I can't make out from the picrure) I wouldn't say you were pregnant based on that.

Thanks everyone! I will definitely retest tomorrow!

To start a new thread, at the top of page on right there's 3 lines, under those is an arrow, it gives options for a new thread.

rebeccac29 Tue 15-Nov-16 15:57:07

It won't let me i did a test straight after and was negative just not sure what to think dont wanna get excited

choccybiscuit Tue 15-Nov-16 17:21:53

Looks positive to me

Rebecca you're better off starting your own thread as it gets confusing when multiple people ask!
How long did it take for the lines? If it was within the time frame then it's positive. If you saw the lines after a few hours then it's evap line

OP - did you test again? I found Superdrug ones good and also Tesco ones
