Possible.: Some dark-complected women have a visible linea nigra whether they are pregnant or not; it may have been there all along and you only noticed it recently. While it is unlikely that you are pregnant it's not totally out of the question. If you're sure that the line wasn't there before and now it is, you should see your gyn to rule out pregnancy & hormonal issues, e.g. Adrenal insufficiency. ...Read more

Does a really thin positive faint line mean im pregnant?

Yep.: Even low levels of human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) will turn the over-the-counter urine pregnancy tests positive (albeit faintly) and are diagnostic of early pregnancy. Having said that, you still have a 1:3-1:4 chance for miscarriage and a low risk for ectopic, multifetal, molar pregnancy - therefore examination with transvaginal ultrasound is warranted as soon as possible. Take 1-5 mg folate (folic acid). ...Read more

See your doctor for a blood pregnancy test (quantitative beta hcg). As it sounds like you're trying to conceive, take prenatal vitamins. 5 days post-ovulation is just before implantation, so discuss the bleeding with your md. Best wishes. ...Read more
