I took this this am, 10dpo. It was negative at three minutes then I showered and came back to this. This pic is at twenty minutes and it was not dried out yet. Any opinions?

It's sorta dark for a false positive, but the timing really affects the reliability. I'd say test again tomorrow with FMU. I hope you get you BFP!

Looks like a positive but you should check again tomorrow with a more sensitive test.

Hi I just got those tests to try after reading how they did not show evaps or anything. I think they are cool. Just want to share though that I tried one out just to see on CD11 and got a faint but visible line well within the time limit. So clearly cannot be positive in my case. Bummer. On CD16 here and O hasn't even happened yet..

 

Just curious, have you tried this brand before? And how did they turn out if so?

I'm really confused. Is this an ovulation test or a pregnancy test? If you got a faint line on a preg test then you are pregnant.

It says HCG so it's a pregnancy test.

What do the instructions say about timing? All of my pregnancy tests say to disregard any lines which appear after X minutes (usually 5). So I'd say it depends how long it took for that line to appear. I'd probably do another one in a few days using first urine of the day.
