That's a positive: Result. Even a faint line indicates possible pregnancy. Wait another day or two, use your urine from the first thing in the morning, and use a test that says pregnant or not pregnant or a test that has a plus or minus.

10 days: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
