Anyone used these before?

I am very very late for af, did a test last Thursday, which was negative, did one of these tests today and there was a very faint line. It didn't look pink, but it was hard to tell iyswim because it was faint. I decided to be scientific and use the other test with water to see if there was a difference. Water test had a vague line which disappeared, wee test had a definite line which stayed and then faded slightly when it dried out.

I'm shitting myself here, please tell me convincing evap lines are common on these tests.

My last af started some time at the beginning of September, haven't had one since then, even if I was pg though I am certainly not that pg, remember at some point having ewcm, although it was way after it should have been.

My cycle is usually 26/7 days although did have a couple of random long cycles when ttc ds2, eg ovulating when af was actually due.

Please tell me these test give a definite evap line, please?

I really don't want to be pg, I could totally ignore this, apart from the resolute lack of af sad.

Why don't you do a clear blue test, they will give you an accurate result.

Maybe you are just having a weird cycle this month.

Do a cb and then you will know, hope you get the result you want x x

If you got a faint line, I'm not sure a clear blue would show a positive result. I'd be inclined to get a first response early response which are really sensitive. I had a faint line on a cheap test but a clear answer on a FRER.

If you read the test within the time limit then the result is probably positive. I think there is a site called pee on a stick which has a lot of info. I would do a test in the morning with first morning urine and see if the line is getting darker.

I got some£shop cheap tests. They were extremely faint and not as sensitive as they said. The lines were barely their one day, not their another day and then after about 5days and a proper test it appeared.

I am now 4+5 grin

I used these, got faint Bfp after the time limit before AF was due, then got a nice big pink line a week later, don't want to get ur hopes up, but I found them sensitive and reliable, I'm now 15+4. Good luck smile
