Pregnancy Tests
Spotting While Pregnant

If a pregnancy test looks negative after five minutes but after a few hours there is a faint line does that mean you are pregnant?

Hi I took a e.p.t like a lil over a week before my period was even due,it was the + or - kind.Well I looked at it after 10 minutes and it still was -.I looked at it again 30 or 35 minutes later and it showed a faint +.It wasnt so faint you couldn't see it,it was definatly a +.I didnt know if I should trust that result (took it 1/15/05) so I went to the doctor 1/19/05and surley it came out a bright pink line.I am 6 weeks now.So its always good that any faint line should be checked into.I hope I helped.


On the box of the test it usually tells you not to read your answer after 10 minutes. You should read your answer with in the first 3 minutes after you get a confirmation in the results window.

My positive line on my test was very faint. You probably are pregnant. You might consider retesting.

a faint negative usually means you're not pregnant, but it depends on the test. You'd have to read the full instructions to be sure.

No. If it's not there with in at least 5 minutes, you're not pregnant
