This can't be a real line surely?(275 Posts)
Hey, so this is my story. Had coil removed February 2019, had first period April time. Been ttc ever since. Had some Dodgy lines a few months ago. Last month December I had a positive frer a week before af was due. Had a couple more Faint lines throughout the week also some negatives. Had a gynaecologist appointment on the 19th , had internal scan etc etc not to do with pregnancy but my endo. He scanned my womb and everything so I know I wasn't pregnant well he never mentioned it. I was due period 20th, bang on time although after scan I was spotting so I think he brought it on a bit. Anyway very heavy bleed for half a day on the 20th and then spotting for 2 More days after that. Nothing like a real period at all. Ever since haven't really had any signs of ovulation or anything haven't tracked this month. Just dtd for 4 days in a row leading up to new year and then on the 3rd. Anyway tonight whilst sitting alone I thought I'd do a test.. don't know why and it was only an internet cheapie. But there's a faint line? If I ovulated when I should have (like the same as last month) this could only make me 6-8dpo maybe before I don't actually know this month at all. Photo is attached. Do you think that's possible or should I count this an an Evap or false positive? I will test again later after I've held for another couple hours. Any help would be great. I am not getting hopes up as wayyyy to early I think. It's a squinter but there and within a min or two xx
I can see a shadow of a line but wouldn't yet get too excited. Try to retest in 48 hrs. If you're pregnant it should be more visible the line. Fingers crossed for you!
I can see it, but I can ALWAYS see where the line would be on those tests. I would not take that as a positive but would test again in a few days to double check.
On those tests you really need more colour in the line before it's a positive. I had a couple that looked identical to that last week, I'm not pregnant. In fact I've had lots of squinters with those tests and the only time I was actually pregnant there was no doubt, it was a faint but pink line.
@R2D2abc I'm not getting my hopes up. Not after last months confusion but thank you. I will test again later cuz I won't be able to just leave it. Then I'll leave it a couple days x
@Emmagen I know that these aren't very reliable. The price you pay I wouldn't expect them to be reliable lol 😂 but thank you I sure will be testing again. I have never really had a line on these, not even when the frer last month had a clear line but turns out that was either a chemical or a very bad test. Just baffled me that it came up so soon x
Didn't mean to say that in a bad way @Mich2020 . I really hope you get a BFP soon. Keep us posted.
I'm having exactly the same atm with these tests I can't post pics as I'm a new user! 🙄🙄 but I have definite lines for the last 2 days, I'm 9-10 dpo I've ran out and ordered some first response test that should arrive tomorrow! Xx
Ahhh @Kendrick12 good luck let me know how you get on. You should be able to upload soon only a day or two I think. Mines so early I don't even know what to think x
@Mich2020 I will let you know tomorrow. I just don’t know if my lines have colour or are just evap lines it would be unlucky to get 4 in a row but who knows! 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️ Xxx
The indents on those tests are the worst, I really hope they get darker xxx
@Kendrick12 let me know when you've tested.
I haven't tested again this morning was going to hold out until tomorrow morning. Just to see. But may sneak one in tonight haha.
@iswhois thank you there's defo something there, but like others have said could be evap lines. Funny though because other months when used these I've had stark white bfns xx
@mitch2020 I've tested twice today with FRER and 2 still very faint but definitely pink lines within the 3 minute time frame! Trying to stop myself from getting a little excited as I know it's so early days!!!! Have you tested again yet?? Xx
Ps it still won't let me post pics! 😫😫😫 xxx
@Kendrick12 omg 😆 that's brill news. Your still so early on if they are real bfp's so I'll keep my fingers tightly crossed for you. No I haven't tested again yet. But I will once I've cooked dinner etc. Will hold myself until then. How exciting for you though. Hopefully will let you upload soon xx
@Mich2020 let me know when you've tested again it was very faint but definitely there both times! I'm gonna try again first thing in the morning! 🤞🤞🤞 xxx
@Mich2020 my first ones on those looked like that and then clearer on the FRER tests today. :-) xxx
Try a FRER test. They are the most reliable IMO (and I was a chronic tester, tried them all....multiple times!!)
I don't have any frer and don't want to get my hopes up like last month. I had a clear positive on a frer then the next day it was gone and then again I had a faint line then I bled about a week after. I got so excited to be let down xx
Hi, I’ve been having such faint lines with these strips, sometimes they come then go again, but I know they aren’t doing the same on all because the ones I do with fmu are more noticeable than afternoon tests (I am a testing addict!) I have one FRER which I really want to try in the morning, I think I will be 11dpo tomorrow, should I wait?
Hey @gg321 I haven't used my fmu with one of these yet. All of these tests are afternoon and evening ones. I might try my last one tomorrow or Friday morning with fmu. I'd say that you'd prob get a positive frer if your having lines on these tests. And especially at 11dpo with fmu. Good luck. Please update. Do you have any photos of your tests? Xx
@gg321 much more obvious than my lines. Xx
