Is this a faulty test?

The line on this test isn’t in the centre and it isn’t as thick as it should be. Also it took just over 5 mins to appear. Pleas give me opinions. I’m going crazy staring at it.

My early positives on sainsburys tests looked like those thin off centre lines. I think that was about 9 days PO

PicnicHamper Wed 20-May-20 23:20:12

Ah. I am 9 DPO. So this could be a positive? Did yours take 5 mins to appear?

Actually I think I’m 10 days DPO.

Too early. Probably faulty.

Pink dye tests are more sensitive. Do leave it longer to test though, you're pretty early even with a more sensitive test.

OK. Thanks. So basically no way of knowing from this test. Need to test tomorrow.

To be fair I have no idea when I ovulated but the only time I could have got pregnant was 12 nights ago tonight. So I could be 12 days post conception or less if the sperm hung about a bit.

I'd say that's a positive. The strip has just moved inside the casing.

Ineedacoffee21 Thu 21-May-20 05:26:57

I would say that’s positive!
Try a first response test

Wait a few more days and then take a FRER

I’m jinxed. Got another pack this morning. Only Sainsburys open at 7am so no choice of brand. The bloody control line hasn’t come up! I presume that means I can’t rely on the negative result in the non control box?

Not too early at all I got faint positives at that stage I'll try find my photo for you

Not too early at all I got faint positives at that stage I'll try find my photo for you. I always found testing in the afternoon after holding got better results than morning!

Positive smile congratulations

Congratulations. You're clearly pregnant no doubt. smile

Regarding the first test, both side control and vertical line were off centre by a similar degree, so that should be ok. And a positive too.

Fifipop185 Thu 21-May-20 08:39:40

I see a line! Congrats.

Apolloanddaphne Thu 21-May-20 08:41:15

Decided to go digital to be sure. I’m amazed!
