Staying faint? Bad sign 😞

I done a couple of ic tests last week which had very very very faint lines. Don't 2 cb and those had very very faint lines. Then I went on holiday for 4 days and was expecting dark lines when I got back but they're still exactly the same.... Barely there. Any idea? Chemical maybe?

Hello I can’t tell you what is happening with you but I can share what is currently happening to me.

I got faint internet cheapie positives on 03 September and continues to get them for a full week. So faint though, they simply weren’t getting darker. I took FRERs and clearblue which were very decent positives.

Unfortunately started bleeding yesterday, my cheapie tests simply not getting stronger was the ultimate sign for me. Even though other tests were decent lines, the cheapies were not budging.

I hope you don’t suffer a loss, it’s crushing and I’m here if you want to chat.

I’ll post pics of my lines of the branded tests. I won’t post the cheapies because you won’t see them clear x

Here is this mornings. Why are they staying so faint 😞 I was so convinced I was going to come back to a dark line.

My clear blue positive

My FRERs from 08 and 10 Sep. They got a tad lighter rather than darker.

@Penelope05 - your cheapie test is a decent line, mines were not as pink as that nor as clear

The clear blues I done a week ago were very faint, I done one at night and it was barely there, then I done one the next morning and although it was faint it was there. I have never had that before.... That's why I was so convinced 😢 my boobs have been hurting the whole holiday, sharp shooting pains inaide them... Aching.... Sore touching them....and my back has been soooooooo sore for about 2 weeks. i was so happy the whole time thinking I can't wait to get home and see a dark line... .now I just feel so low 😩

I took about 20 pictures of it and that one was the clearest. Some of the pictures you could barely see it lol

@Penelope05 - when are you due your period?

Penelope05 Sat 12-Sep-20 11:26:45

No idea. I have pcos so I'm very irregular. My last period started the 12th of August.

I've ordered a free from amazon, will be here tomorrow.... Maybe cheapie Internet tests are just really bad lol I feel pregnant. My boobs never feel like this, and I usually get back pain before my period but this has been constant for 2 weeks now.

They are very livhtzz zzz

calimommy Sun 13-Sep-20 17:53:13

So sorry don't know what that was.
They are very light, perhaps give the EPU a call to discuss x

Penelope05 Sun 13-Sep-20 19:22:02

I'll wait till my frer comes. If it's positive I'll phone my doctor. If it's negative then obviously really bad Evaps or a chemical. Does anyone have experience with ebay tests? Do they take ages to get darker? Surely I can't get Evaps on every test 😞

I took a load of those amazon tests last month and they were all faint positives like yours. Never got darker. I’m sorry to say they were false positives, I was never pregnant. I really really hope this isn’t the case for you though. 💐 xxxx

@Penelope05 how did the FR go? Fingers crossed for you! X
