Read instructions: The instructions are usually on the box. It is best to clarify results against the guidance on the box. If you are unclear then get a digital test that says pregnant or not pregnant- or go to the doctor for more specific testing.

I was not aware that: you can get a vertical line for the analog test result. The control is a verticle line. The result line should be horizontal for negative and a "+" for a positive. You can repeat or use a digital test. See: FAQ | e.p.t™ Pregnancy Tests & Pregnancy Planning Solutions
