Blue Test trickery or for real??!!!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok Ladies, I know I should be smarter than this, but I have to ask.

I do nto get a normal period. I have not had one since April when I came off of the pill, so I have been testing every 4 weeks just to be sure. I came home from vacation on July 10th and bought a pack of blue dye CVS brand tests. (I know, I shpuld know better.. blue dye). The test I took the next morning was negative.

So yesterday morning I took the second test from that pack. It was less than 10 minutes, but nothing was coming up on the test, not even a control line, so I threw it away. I though it was faulty and I will just have to wait until my docotrs appointment Wednesday. Well last night I looked at the test again and it was positive!!!!!

So i ran out and bought a First Response (pink) and it was negative, but not FMU.

So the question is.... what should I think?? Negative right? Until the docotr tells me otherwise on Wednesday? I have to be sure because Wed. if everything is negative I will be going on Provera to start my period.

Please let me know your thoughts. I have never seen tests change, even after hours of sitting. Especially change from nothing to positive. And since it has only been 4 weeks, could it be that I am and its just too little of HCG to tell after 12 hours of drinking water????

Until you confirm with a pink dye within the alotted time limit I would say negative, sorry. They give the time limit for a reason - because the tests indeed can change (falsley) just from drying (regardless of whether you've witnessed one previously or not). And especially if you didn't even get a control line with that test...sounds like an error to me.
That isn't to say you aren't preggo, but get a pink dye and only look up until the 10 minute mark.
Good luck!

It could go either way. Test again in the AM. I know that isn't what you want to hear!
