I'm not TTC, but have had several slips the past few weeks. I'm not sure where I am in my cycle because I took 2 Plan B (morning after pill) 6 and 5 weeks ago, which both triggered periods. This morning I took a First Response test. It looked negative. But if I scrutinized it, I wasn't so sure. I took it apart and on the underside of that clear plastic strip the second line was quite visible. 


Disclaimer - I have been through the whole ttc thing several times (I have 3 kids) so I am familiar with very faint positives just after implantation. I just don't know where I am in my cycle so I don't know if I should be looking for a super faint or strong second line. 


I didn't take a picture, unfortunately.


Anyone familiar with what the deal is when you take apart First Response and look at the underside of the clear plastic strip?


Thank you!!!

I've totally taken apart a test before. I think I've taken apart almost all of them. 

I'm not sure what you mean by underside....
