I took an pregnancy test this morning with fmu it has the control line then there is a lighter line and then a almost colorless line?? Is it positive?

Can retest later: If a pregnancy test result is uncertain, one can retest one week later. It is not necessary to retest any sooner than that. Pregnancy tests should have a Control Line (one line) and then no other lines if NEGATIVE. If there is one other line in addition to the Control Line, then the result is POSITIVE. Haven't seen a 3-lined home pregnancy test, but if you have one, double-check the instructions. ...Read more

Your temperature is not predictive of pregnancy, but can be used to predict ovulation mid-cycle. If you are over 30 days from your last period and your preg test is positive, you are pregnant. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time.

Need to be seen: While half of all pregnancies have some bleeding in the first trimester , bleeding like a period is not normal and could indicate a problem so you should see an obstetrician. Take care. ...Read more
