HCG level: The two lines need not be of the same intensity as these are due to different reagents and only one is due to hcg. If the matter is of such concern, you may consult your doctor for an HCG level keeping in mind that there is a wide variation in normal levels. See this site for more info on HCG levels. http://www.americanpregnancy.org/duringpregnancy/hcglevels.html.
