I have been using the HCG test trips bought off the internet that are supposed to detect pregnancy early, because they measure at 20 mIU/ml sensitivity. Does anyone know if a very faint line in the test area mean pregancy? My line was very faint, but could be seen even holding at arms length. I did not test with early morning urine. I tested at 7:30pm. Is anyone familiar with these tests and their results?

I would test at early morning urine you know when you wake up and see if it's darker

Try a.m. or at least 5 hours between potty time : ) Good luck!

Thanks! Have you used these tests before?

I tested with first morning urine and still a very very faint line... the line shows up even more at 20 minutes than at the 5 minute read time. ???? Anyone familiar with these tests?

Kristina I think you are pregnant. Even if the line is very faint that means something. My best friend is about to deliver a baby and she said that always I've got positive faint lines after one hour or so. My tests are showing a faint positive after many hours, do you know what that mean??? Please give your opinion. ***Good Luck***

Meg- What tests are you using?

 

Meg - February 14

First Step Pregnancy Test it says in the cover but no time mentioned and how much urine to put. This test is with two vertical line positive, you have to put your urine in the small box with pipette. And than after some minutes it start like red shadows and all the time is changing. When I woke up I saw a faint positive line. Strange but I hope that means something.

Meg - sounds good!!!! Good luck to you, too! I did read on the net that if you read results after 10 minutes an "evaporation" line can been seen in the test area. So, now I am just confused. I guess I will test again later today.... then again tomorrow.... hahaha! ;)

Kristina, what does that mean. What do you think am I preg or Not. And what is evapouration line anyway??? :-)

 

Kristina - February 14

An evaporation line is some sort of line that just darkens slightly after urine has been present for quite a while. It would look like there is 2 lines after a certain period of time. I think that if the results are not 2 lines within 5 minutes, than it is negative. It does not matter what is says 30 minutes later or even a day later. If you had a faint line, like me, within the fisrt 5 minutes.... I would test again tomorrow. Keep me posted!

Serenna - thank you! I hope God hears what you said! :) Tell me one thing.... was it a very faint line everyday that you tested? Today I hardly saw anything and I was so uspet....

 

Serenna - February 14

Yes it was a very very very faint line I had to post a tinypic on here to get a second opinion. Have faith. If it appears within the time frame...there's a reason for that. Good Luck!! If u have any more questions i'll be happy to try and answer.

Hi Kristina, I thought I would throw in my experience with these same tests. I took several tests they came back neg finally got one that was super super super light barely visable! I decided to go buy a FIRST RESPONSE EARLY RESULT that night and it came back faint as well, by the time the week was over I had a very BIG FAT POSITIVE with the first response yet the internet tests still tested neg or very faint! I would go but a first response but if you got a faint line on the internet tests before the 5 min. YOU ARE PREGGERS!! CONGRATS! By the way I only got positive internet test in the evening. Good luck!

Serenna AND Aim: Thank you both!!! I hope I have good news very soon! One more little question: did your tests become darker the longer they sat? Mine are getting darker, but it has been 24 hours! ??? What do you think?

 

Aim - February 14

all tests get darker the longer they sit, dont look at them past the 5 min mark as they are no longer valid. I would just get a first response and test!
