hi. I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else before. I was supposed to start my period on Sunday and I have not yet. I am breastfeeding and my cycles have only been back for 4 months and one month I did not even have a period ( I had a 52 day cycle that month). Anyway my dh and I have been really lax with using any bc lately. We had unprotected sex on day 16 of my cycle and my last cycle was 30 days. ANyway I did not start so on MOnday I took a FactPLus select test. You are supposed to read after 3 minutes but not more than 20 minutes. I dipped the stick in the pee - watched the pee move across the reult window and decided it looked like it was going to be negative. I sat it on the counter walked to the kitchen for a drink and walked back in a lo and behold there was a very faint pink line - so I am thinking well there is a line. I take the other test in the box and the line occurs on this in less than 2 minutes. I decide to get a blood test and it is negative - the nurse even called them to rerun in which confirmed it was negative. I had taken a test in the box on Thursday before the sunday I was supposed to start and there was no line in the result window at all. Later I show my mom the tests and she is a nurse and she goes "oh yes those are definitely positive". Well I know that the HCG gets in your blood before your urine first. What the heck is going on? Was it just faulty tests?
