<p>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!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here's this info from POAS:</p>
<p> </p>
<div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">
<div><strong class="style4"><em>13. The line disappeared after the time limit! Is it still positive?</em></strong> <em>Please see <a href="http://www.peeonastick.com/issues.html" target="_blank">Current Issues & Alerts</a> for information on this ongoing problem with Answer Early and First Response Early Result tests.</em>
<p>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.</p>
<p>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 <strong>at the 10-minute mark</strong>, you are not pregnant <em>or</em> you are testing too early and there is not enough hCG to be detected in your pee. <em>Note: women who have experienced the <a href="http://www.peeonastick.com/issues.html" target="_blank">current</a> "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 <strong>not</strong> been pregnant.</em></p>
<p>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.</p>

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

<p>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.</p>

<p>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?</p>
