Faint positive line

Hey I’m 7 days late for my period and took an at home test with a very faint positive line (I’m attaching the picture). Does this look like I’m pregnant or a false positive?

Looks positive to me!! Congratulations x

Doctor told me you can get a false negative but never a false positive. If it's faint it's positive, it's just early in the pregnancy. I was one day late when I took a test at the hospital which had the faintest wiser of a line. It was positive, it's just that you don't have as many HCG pregnancy hormones in the early stages. Congratulations!!

I really hope so! Will make an appointment with my doctor and do another test in a day or two just to make sure. Thanks smile

I’m also 7 days late. Been getting mostly bfn but a few hmm potential very faint positives. Not tested today. Going to test again tomorrow morning. Been feeling very queasy for the past few days too

Thanks! Got a first response fast result(not the early resukt one) at home. Tempted to do that when I get in(not peed in a few hours so might pick something up if there’s anything. Ordered some Off eBay too so if they arrived I may have to indulge!

Don't waste lots of money on tests. Once you get a line, faint or vivid, it matters not. You ARE pregnant.
In order for the line to show you have to have HCG hormones in your urine. You only get these if you are pregnant. This is why you CANNOT get a false positive result. You can get false negative, for example if your urine is too dilute to contain enough HCG to make the coloured line react.
So, do a wee in a jug or something in the morning ( your first wee) and put the stick in. If you are pregnant you will get a line. Once you have that line you don't need to do another 25 tests. It's just a waste of money-- and you will need your £££ as babies cost a fair bit!
Good luck!

I will get a ‘line’ then nothing! I did one earlier and zilch! Nothing! I’m driving myself nuts!!
