So we did our first attempt at insemination this month & we're really impatient so we haven't even made it to our full 2ww yet, but we tested tonight & got a weird result... We took an EPT test with the +/- outcome and the control line came up and the horizontal line came up right away & then like 5 tiny blue dots came up above the horizontal line where the top positive line would be... none beneath... Calm my nerves... was this just a faulty test, or could we have just tested too early & got a slight positive?

Momma to my pants pullin down, potty learnin, "Beeeeeg Boy" who now knows his, phonetically difficult for a toddler, name! Plus 2 dogs, 35 rats, & 5 or so bunnies

Just followed this from the front page...there are many posts about the faultiness of blue dye tests and I figure yours was blue dye because *most* EPT tests are. So, I hate to say this but you'll have to get a pink dye test to know for sure. I have gotten + tests on blue dyes and not been the slightest bit pregnant.

I'd highly recommend getting a First Response Early Response test. They are great and very reliable early. Let us know how it goes! I'm excited for you!!!

I second the FRER suggestion--much more reliable. And they can detect lower levels of HCG than the EPT. So if the EPT is detecting the slightest bit of HCG, the FRER should show a more definitive line.

Good luck!
