What does it mean when there is a clear second line on pregnancy test? It's not a faint line it's a clear line. Does that mean I'm pregnant?

the second line on my at home pregnancy test was very faint but i could still see it does it still count as being positive?

Depends

Pregnancy_test
Usually according to the test insert, the test is to be considered equivocal if faint. Would advice retesting in a day or 2 - if you are pregnant your urine HCG will increase and will give a better testing, if not you can be sure you are not with the repeat test.

I have a faint line on a pregnancy test and ovary pain should I be worried?

Positive Test

Ovarian_cyst
I'm guessing you mean the test line of the test is faintly positive, not just the control line. ANY visible line in the test area is considered a positive test. That said, with pelvic pain, there may be a problem. I would recomend that you see your Dr or a walk-in clinic ASAP. If the pain becomes severe, you may need to go to the ER as ectopic pregnancy is a possibility.

What is the difference between a evap line and a faint positive line on a pregnancy test?

Read at 3 minutes

Pregnancy_test
A pregnancy test is read at 3 minutes. If the test is negative at 3 minutes, sometimes there will be an "evap line" that shows up later if you let the test sit. This isn't a faint positive. The pregnancy test must be read at 3 minutes. Anything that shows up later is a false "evap line".

Extremely but visible faint line after about 2-3mins. Evaporation or positive line on a pregnancy test? Thank you

Faint positive

Pregnancy_test
There are several possibilities. Maybe the test is a false positive. Maybe the pregnancy hormone is so low that a bright line will not be seen. You may take another test, or simply see your doctor for a blood test to know for sure.

Use digital test

Pregnancy_test
reading urine test lines had been the bane of patients for 30 years: use digital tests.
