Hi guys I was wondering if anyone could help? I did two Tesco hpts last night. Thought I could see something faint on both of them. Waited until the 10 minute development time was up and then opened the test and I have two thick faint blue lines? I took a frer the morning after not fmu and negative? Are these blue evaps? Or was the frer faulty as I've heard they can be? Any help would be very much appreciated
I did this with Clearblue and opened them after the developing time. There were blue lines and I definitely wasn't pregnant. If you have to open the test to see a line it's not a reliable result. Test again tomorrow with a frer and you should get a more accurate result.
I think these type of tests always have very faint lines and it's only when you can see a line when the test is in one piece that it counts. That's what all the research I've done points to. Sorry. How many dpo are you?
Taking them apart can really mess them up. When I was testing for a negative after a miscarriage I had one where I couldn't tell if there was still a very, very faint line (was in the weird circumstance of hoping for a negative!) and so opened it up to see. Almost immediately a really strong, thick but quite grey line appeared - as thick and strong as when I'd been six weeks pregnant. There was no way my hormones were still that high so opening it must have screwed with it. That was also a Tesco test.
