False Positive Or False Negative

Around 11:30 this morning I took a First Response : Early Result Pregnancy Test, and the results came back immediately with the dark pink control line, and then gradually over a minute or two, a very faint pink line next to it. The presence of the second line typically represents a positive result. Very anxious, I went to buy an E.P.T. test (not digital) about an hour or two later. The E.P.T. test showed up with the dark blue control line in the control window, and a dark blue line in the test window. The presence of a line (rather than a "+" symbol) typically represents a negative result. Which one is correct, and what should I do?

one test may have been more sensitive than the other. try again with a low sensitivity test in the morning. good luck. x x

First Response is the most sensitive test on the market. I believe you are pregnant my dear, so congratulations! Your urine may have been a little more diluted with the second test also.

I took the tests again this morning, using the dip method (to rule out human error). The pink line on the FR is much lighter than yesterday, and there is a very light blue line making the + sign on the EPT. So...it's probably blood test time, huh?

Congrats! It sounds like you are prego! Usually it doesn't matter if the line is light or dark. If you can see it within the first 10 min, it's there!
