Results Of Test

PinkTutu - July 2

I took a pregnancy test last night and it didnt seem to be working. (working meter was not on) About 30 minutes after the test began I got a negative result, and then an hour after that I got a very faint positive result. I retested this morning to get a negative result. I have no health insurance and money is tight so I can't make it to the doctor right away, and the clinic is backed up for a month. I havent had my period since the 20th of May. And they are always regular. Should I wait a few days and retest? Could it be that it is just to early to tell, I have heard that home test don't show up on some women until they are around 11 weeks. Could this be my problem? Has this happened to anyone before? This is my first expected pregnancy, please help.

hi pinktutu...i'm only trying my first time too so i'm no expert, but a test should never take 30 minutes before a result shows (at least none of the ones i've seen)...it usually takes less than 3minutes and after that the results aren't fair anymore. Go get a different brand of test and retry.... best of luck.... until you can get to a clinic try and stay healthy, acting as if you were pregnant just in case.

Pink Tutu, Any pg test will show a result in as little as 3min, but should not be read after 10min. Try the equate brand +/- test from Walmart. They are cheap and I got my positive at like 5days late. Also use first morning's urine and pee in a cup and dip the test. Good luck. :)

I am new at this ttc thing as well, but I do know that you can't rely on those results after that long of a period of time. RETEST DEFINITELY.
