I was wondering, do all hpt have evaporation lines? I just did a test and I got a faint line but I don't know if that is just an evaporation line that i have heard about or not. I was supposed to start my AF today, but nothing so I took a test. Do you think the results are accurate? I have to find out asap because of the meds that I take. Thanks for any help.

i have never heard of any kind of evaporation lines and i've been using hpt's for well over a year. google it and see what you come up with

If the line has color to it (pink or blue, depending on the color of your test's dye) and appeared during the time limit of the test, then I'd say you're probably pregnant. I'd say it's best for you to stop your meds and take a test again in a few days. Your HCG should have doubled by then, and the line should be more definite. Good luck!!! By the way, what meds are you on?

I too think if the line appeared immediately (within the time limit), then it is not an evaporation line. Evaporation lines appear later.

The line definatly appeared within a minute. It was so faint though that I couldn't tell straight away. But it finally came through enough within the minute that I can definatly see a line. It's a pinkish color. I am on heart medicine that slows my heart down, therefore it would also slow down a developing baby. I just don't want to get my hopes up.

I think you are pregnant...

You can also hold your pee for a few hours and take a digital test..

You should probably also call your doctor immediately. Some medication, while not good for the baby, is better to continue during pregnancy. It may be the case that any physical complications of going off of the medicine are worse for the baby than the medicine itself. Please, please call your doctor.

I have talked to my doctor about being pregnant, and it is medically advisable to stop my medication. Slowly though. Not all at once. I have uncomfortable cramps every now and then. I just keep telling myself that AF is going to pop up any minute. I don't have any symptoms though that would be any different from AF. My b___bs are sore and I get a back ache, but nothing too bad. I know that I feel like I am going through menopause though with these hot flashes! And I am only 23 years old! lol... Thanks for your help. I will surely retest in a few days. I can't believe that I might really be pregnant.!!!!

Well, of course if you lower your dosage now to ween yourself off your meds, you can always increase it back later if you're not pregnant. I think you are, though. Congrats!!!

Thanks Lin. I really hope I am. I am so nervous!!!! Have you ever heard of this happening to women who were indeed pregnant?

evap lines are light and greyish not the same colour as the test dye perhaps go to www.twoweekwait.com and go to the pee stick gallery and match up your test with one that are one there they even have pictures of evaps

Yes, of course. Sometimes it just takes awhile for the HCG to build up in your system. While the level is still low, the line will be very faint. As I said, it should double every few days, so in a couple days you'll see a darker line. Make sure and use an early test, because they detect lower levels of the hormone and will show up darker.

stacy go to wal-mart and buy the EPT digital test. it says the actual words pregnant or not pregnant. it's amazing to see that word pop up and know it's real this time. dit's a little expensive but sooo worth it

Thanks Elisabeth. I actually took another test this morning cause I am that impatient, but it came out darker than yesterday's line. It was bright and I showed other people to make sure that I wasn't going crazy and it's true... I am 100% preggos now. I can't believe it! Are you pregnant too? I am so excited. Thanks for your help.
