I'm 4 days before auntie flow is supposed to show, but i thought I would just try one of those early pregnancy tests. I wasn't really thinking it was possible, but wanted to check just in case....well I wandered away from it....might have been 10 minutes but there is a very faint pink line now....but the test told me that I can't rely on results after 10 mins....advice?

as a side note before I give my advice.... in this case your name is quite humorous.


my advice: unless you know for sure it wasnt more than 10 minutes... its probably best to test again... though Ive really never heard of evaps showing exactly at 10 (but i have heard of them showing as soon as 8 minutes and as late as a day)

I waited until the morning to test because I was told that was when the levels of hormones are higher. Is this true? Do I have to wait until tomorrow morning to re-test?

Its probably best to wait until tomorrow... and stay there with it until either the time limit or you see the line appear.

Plus, although not 100% guaranteed, but tomorrows test will likely be a darker line (if not, its nothing to worry about though! its perfectly common to get a lighter one... even on the second test out of a box of two!)

haha. My name is accurate in so many ways.

Thanks so much. I'll test again tomorrow and then I won't leave its side until 10 minutes it up. I've learned my lesson. I'll let ya'll know how it goes. Thanks again.

I think I'm looking at a BFP. The pink line is stronger than it appears
