i just have a quick question...a couple of days ago i bought one of the new ept tests that show a big + or - on it... is that a good test to use?? would it show even a faint + line if the hcg levels are really low?? any inputs would be very much appreciated!!!

Depends on how low the levels are. My friend took a test and it was negative, a few days later it was a very very faint positive and she really was pregnant. Another friend took a test a got a faint positive, and the next day a second test showed a strong positive. So, to answer your question, if it's early on the test could show up as a false negative or a very faint positive. If it shows as a faint positive, it probably is positive and I would test again in a day or two first thing in the morning.

ok i took a test today first thing in the morning and i left it sitting in the bathroom. Then i left for the day and when i came back in the evening, i saw a very very faint line...even had to hold it to the light and look closely to see it (almost looks like there is nothing there). Does this mean i'm pregnant?? What does everyone think

You left the test too long. The directions on most home tests say to read it between 3 and 10 minutes or the result will not be accurate.

If you left the test all day it could be an evaporation line. If AF is still a no show I would test again in a day or two. Good Luck! Amanda

amanda audrey and ashley, i too have had 3 positive tests, but only when they have been left longer than 10 minutes. there are differing views on this site as to whether that is positive or negative. i defintiely have a lot of other symptoms and am waiting to go for a scan.... i'm afriad you just have to play the waiting game!
