i took a wondfo hpt this morning, about six days before my period was due and it came up positive right away. then i took about four more (just to make sure lol) and they all came up negative!! has anyone else had this happen to them?

Did you take the subsequent tests with subsequent pees?  FMU will be the most concentrated and therefore the most accurate.  Subsequent pees may have been too dilute.  Try again tomorrow- maybe with a different test.  But as far as I know Wondfo tests are considered fine.

What color is the dye on the tests?  I've heard about many people getting false positives with blue Wondfo's.

Do a google search of "false positive wondfo" and you'll see what I mean

I see that line!  False positives are nearly non-existent, but if you used the same pee and got one BFP and 4 BFN's?  Maybe a faulty test. With this information, I would wait another 2-4 days and test again.

i googled "thin line on wondfo test" and it turns out that a bunch of women had the same thing happen to them and then retested and got a bfn. thats really irritating to me (gosh, i must be pmsing irked.gif) because it was totally not my fault. its not like i took it, waited an hour then went through the trash to look at it. it came up in right as the dye ran across! grr. im sorry im kind of moody..its just so evil!! demon.gif

If you're testing again right away, it's possible that the hcg in your urine is just diluted.

 

I'm on the fence about yours. I use wondfos, and your thin line doesn't look quite the same as the thin line evaps I've seen on them. But if it's 6 days until your period, it's probably too early to really know what's going on. While wondfos are great and cheap, I find them really hard to read early. I started testing at 11DPO, but didn't get one that I felt was clearly positive until about 15 DPO. And the one I got at 12 DPO was fainter and thinner than the one at 11, causing me a bunch of undue stress.

 

This is a good example of the wondfo evaps I've seen: http://www.twoweekwait.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=179645&highlight=

i took another one this morning that was definitely a bfn. ive started spotting really lightly like i normally do before af and started cramping. however most of my cramping is on one side which has never happened to me but ive had a lot of crazy pms symptoms since ive had my baby. oh well, maybe next month.

I swear I see something on the one with FMU, but I don't want to be all phantom-line. I think I've been staring at too many HPTs lately.

You'll have your answer soon- I'm sure you just need a few more days to figure out what's happening for certain.  You could be experiencing pregnancy spotting, which is not uncommon around the time of expected AF.

 

Just as a side note in case you do not get a confirmed BFP, spotting prior to AF (while not pregnant) is not considered normal and is often a sign of low progesterone.  How many months have your had your cycle back since your LO's birth?  It's not uncommon to have short LP's, spotting, etc. as your body regulates after birth and while breastfeeding.  But that can mean that TTC can be more of a challenge.  Have you considered charting to see what your cycles are fertile?

i started spotting before my periods after i had my baby. sometimes i dont spot at all beforehand, sometimes its for 5 days beforehand. i'm going to start taking progesterone only pills once my period does start because my husband and i decided that we arent going to try for a baby for another year or so.

FWIW, I used Wondfo tests (ovulation and pregnancy) and only got one evaporation line on the many pregnancy tests I used.  My evap line was thick and grey-white, not pink.

I'm confused, is this the possibly faulty test? I see a line and I am not the type to see a line in every test. 

 

Have you tested since then?

Isn't this about the time of your expected AF?  Have you tried testing again?
