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

Talk to your gyn: It sounds like you're having some stress about a possible pregnancy. There are no gradations of pregnancy tests. They are either positive or negative. 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

Yes: Emergency contraception such as Plan B or ellaOne can alter the menstrual symptoms for the cycle in which it was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because ellaOne works most of the time, but not all the time. Alternatively, one could wait and if the next regular period is normal and on time, then no need to test. ...Read more
