Competitive POAS

Just felt compelled to test after reading GOMLs poas thread- 3 days earlier than "allowed"!

And now my punishment is two unclear results.

Serves me right I suppose- Internet cheapies and I don't really get along.

So I have a line on both near the x of max. What does this mean?

Where should a positive appear on these strips?

grin I was lurking on the GOML's thread last night too.

Actually I wanted to go and POAS, but I hadn't quite ovulated, so a +ve would have been a bit of a shcok! Maybe I should have POA ovulation S so I didn't feel left out?

Haven't used the strips myself, so don't know. I always use the internet cheapy mid-stream sticks, which have a T and a C for test and control end.

Sorry, am being very unhelpful so will go away and hopefully someone can come along and tell you what your result means.

If you've only got one line then the test is either negative or invalid. Two lines mean mean +ve. Sorry. I've been POAS for two days consecutively and only getting one line but still no AF so am assuming it's too early to tell or my period will arrive in a couple of days.

Trying really hard not to go and POAS today as well because it'll be a waste but am sorely tempted!! Not working today either so have little (except housework) to occupy my mind.

I'm going upstairs to the bathroom to have a look on the tests to see what you mean.

I've looked and I see where you mean, there's an absorbent bit that you stink in the pee and where that ends you get a darker bit? I don't think any colour there means a +ve, it's not within the control window. Sorry sad

Three days early is pretty early though. Leave it until Saturday or Sunday and test again.

Thanks Japers. Its too early to test really anyway!

Will wait til Friday and retest as then its likely to be more conclusive!

"Will wait til Friday and retest as then its likely to be more conclusive!"

Bollocks I will.....Ive just tested and of course my eyes have done the "ooh theres a tiny faint line" to which my DP (whose eyesight is poor at the best of time) said nothing there except a faint line.

Got all excited...he could see it he meant the bold strong control line.
