Hi I have been very bloated the last few days, I done a pregnancy test and there was one white line and a pink line what does that mean?

Negative: Most pregnancy tests that use lines have one pink line for a control and a second that turns pink if the patient is pregnant. Yours sounds negative. Look at the picture connected here. Use this as an opportunity to protect against pregnancy unless that is what you desire.

Bloating is very common and can be caused by multiple issues mostly diet and constipation. ...Read more

Hi iam nazera, today I did a pregnancy test one is dark pink and other is very light pink, does it mean iam pregnant, my period is delay by 7days.?

Sounds like yes: As long as you read the test at the 3 minute time. If a pregnancy test is left to sit longer, it can turn falsely positive. Be sure it's read at the 3 minute mark. If there are 2 lines, no matter how light one is, it's a positive test. I hope this is good news for you. ...Read more

I just took a pregnancy test and one line is dark but the other is very light (very) what could that mean?

The test is positive: It sounds like the test is positive. You may repeat the test using a first urine sample in the morning to avoid dilution, repeat it in 1 week or have your doctor do a blood test.

Note: The test is read as either positive (2 lines) or negative (one line - control line). If the level of pregnancy hormone in urine is low you may get a 'light' line. ...Read more

Took one pregnancy test last week. Positive 1-2 weeks. Took another one this morning, positive 2-3 weeks. Does this mean things are progressing ok?

Yes: Urine test does not measure the quantity of HCG in blood and is not useful to monitor the progress of pregnancy. If you are feeling okay and there is no abnormal bleeding, it is okay. I hope that you are under the care of a doctor for the sake of your and your baby's health. ...Read more

What if I take a pregnancy test and the one is darkest and the other line is like a color pink? Iam a pregnant or no? Plssssssss answer my question.

Probably but depends: This somewhat depends on the brand of test; most, though, will have one line that is called the "control" that will always be solid and darker. The other line on most tests will show up if the person is pregnant. Sometimes this is much lighter than the control. I would recommend checking the package to see if that's what it shows and seeing your physician for confirmation. Best of luck to you! ...Read more
