Can I get some reassurance this isn't possible? UPDATE #100 - Page 7

post #121 of 164
Wouldnt it be ironic if the OP's AF arrives right on time, or maybe a day or two early?

I can see it in the first picture. I didn't even have to squint and move my head from side to side like I usually do when people post maybe-positive-tests.

I hope you get the result you want.

I see the line in both.

I'm boggling on how she'd get that sample under a microscope, though. :

No second line there.

I even opened it in photoshop and checked the colors all along the strip - there is no line there, no extra hue, saturation or pigmentation at all.

Sperm were discovered by the guy who invented the microscope. Guess how that happened.

I think he might be a bit creeped out if I jump up and say "thanks honey, now where is my microscope?" I might just do that one day though.

Yep, I've done that too!

Hmm. I guess I would retest in a couple of days myself. And I would probably grab a microscope and a sample from DH.
Actually it involves quite a bit more than that if they do the test properly. It is a lengthy and very scientifically precise procedure. I was an andrologist (before becoming a SAHM!), and it's not "just" looking under a microscope for swimmers.

For the most part, you need a very good and specific microscope. I tried to use dh's from his lab one time (shhh our secret), and it was impossible. If you really want to know and have access to a good one and the knowledge of how to properly use a microscope, place a dot of semen (not too large, you don't want overflow) on the glass slide, place a slide cover over top, and you have to get quite close to it. Adjust until you see it.

Crap. Now you have me thinking mine may not be an evaporation line after all, because my line is WAY darker than that. I can barely see it in the first picture, but not at all in the second picture.

Hey! Quit ragging on FRER it's never failed me yet!!

I took a vaginal swab after DTD that morning and looked for (and found!) swimmers under the scope.

Yeah, the line is super light. I can still see it but it's really light and doesn't show up really in the pictures.

I'm 99.9% sure it's probably an evap line. Let's hope!

I think I can see 'something' in the first one, but it may just be an evap line.

This thread is scaring me, though. My husband has his V scheduled for Thurs.
I assumed we'd be footloose and fancy-free regarding sex from then on...now, not so much.

*bites fingernails*

OP- I asked my dh how long they gave him to get his sample to the lab and he said 2 hours so I think your dh could manage that.

lolalola- Just make sure you used protection until your dh gets cleared and make sure he gets a sample checked. My dh has his V over 4 years ago and no issues for us.

Oh, you bet I will. I wasn't aware of any of this, prior to this thread.

yup, and most postives show up before the time is even up.
