Just to clarify, you took a FRER and a line appeared and then disappeared?  And then you waited four more days, took a Wondofo and a line appeared and then disappeared?  So TWICE a line appeared and then disappeared?!  Wow, that's some bad luck with tests!

 

Here's this info from POAS:

 

Quote:
13. The line disappeared after the time limit! Is it still positive? Please see Current Issues & Alerts for information on this ongoing problem with Answer Early and First Response Early Result tests.

A positive result will generally stay positive for 48 hours. Some very faint lines may fade and become difficult to see, however. Note: sometimes a line will appear briefly as the dye in the test passes over the area where a positive result would show. This is not a positive result.

My suggestion: as soon as urine is applied to your test, set a stopwatch for 9 minutes, 45 seconds. Place the test on a flat, dry surface and walk away. When the alarm goes off, read the test from the same distance you would read a book-- allow 15 seconds to examine the test. If there is a pink line (or blue, obviously, if your test uses blue dye), you are pregnant. If there is no line at the 10-minute mark, you are not pregnant or you are testing too early and there is not enough hCG to be detected in your pee. Note: women who have experienced the current "disappearing positive" phenomenon often had a positive result at the 10-minute mark, only to have the line disappear minutes or hours after that. The vast majority of these women have not been pregnant.

If you really get what looks like a true positive, and it disappears, I suggest calling the manufacturer and asking for their input. They may compensate you for the test as well.

 

If AF does not show up within another 2 days, I would get a digi and test again.

thank you. That's what I was thinking. All of my positives stayed there for years. I have since thrown them all out. But they were still there.

Yeah, my positive tests have remained positive for weeks as well.  Bummer!  But this doesn't mean you're not pg!  It just might be a bit early still.  Do you chart to confirm O?
