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.

Are you pregnant if the pregnancy test came back with a very faint second line and then became negative?

A faint second line usually means you are pregnant - but probably have very low HCG levels because you are not very far along. Remember only to read the test within the specified time limit. Usually it is around 8-10 minutes later. Any result read after this time should be ignored. If you tested and showed a faint positive 10 minutes later, and then it disappeared I would take the faint positive as your result and disregard the rest.
