Evaporation line?: These tests are fairly accurate and do not "evaporate". If you think you are pregnant, repeat your HPT and if still uncertain, get a blood HCG test for pregnancy.

Positive test: If the pregnancy indicator line shows up at all, even faintly, at the recommended timing to check the test strip, then it should be considered a positive test.

Depends: 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.

Repeat in a day : Just repeat the test in a day or two. If you are pregnant the hormone will rise and the test will be clearly positive. If you are not pregnant it won't show up.

Not always: A positive pregnancy test has a positive "control" line that should be obviously positive, and a positive "test" line than can be faint early in a pregnancy (because there is not that much bHCG in the urine early in pregnancy). If one gets a faint "test" line, just do a second test 7 days later.

Package insert: Each type of pregnancy test on the market come with a package insert. This tells you exactly how to interpret the test results. In the package it will likely have an image of a positive and a negative test result. Read the instructions and follow them exactly as directed. It sounds like your test was negative meaning not pregnant.

Possible: If you had sex since your last period, did the test correctly and it was positive, you are very likely to be pregnant. You may repeat the test in 4-5 days, Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. Please seek care from a doctor to protect your and your baby's health. Wish you good health and a healthy baby!

Blood test: Since you are having symptoms and the urine pregnancy test results are confusing you, then get a blood pregnancy test through your doctor. This should be more accurate at correctly diagnosing if you are pregnant.

Whay does a faint negative line on pregancy test ?

Whay does a faint negative line on pregancy test ?

Re-test in few days.: The concentration and amount of your urine on the strip may affect the intensity of line appearing in the result section. It you can see the line as negative, it is highly likely negative, as these home tests are quite good/accurate. If in doubt, you can retest in a few days... Good luck...
