Pregnancy Tests

If one line on a pregnancy test was very faint but you could tell there were two lines does this mean you are pregnant?

A very faint line usually means you are pregnant, any faint line over the positive means you are, it just may well be that your hormone levels are low due to being too early in the pregnancy therefore the test is only just picking it up giving you a slight positive . Some have had a positive test early then found out later they are not pregnant a reason for this is because the levels have dropped to normal which is usually because those ''unfortunate woman have miscarried . Try retesting in another few days or weeks. The test clearly says not to test until the first day your period is due, because you ovulate 2weeks before (which is when ''most'' woman become pregnant.) Also that is why they count 40 weeks from your last period, to allow for the 2weeks ovulation. Every woman is different, some have higher HCG levels than others which explains why some are able to get a quicker result before others. Everyone has a different opinion, so when you ask you must openminded to different answers, if you are unsure of your result and you are overdue for your period then I suggest you see a midwife or doctor.

Well, it depends if you have two faint lines then yes you are pregnant. HCG levels in your system is not as high. This situation happened to me before in 2004. I had to take 6 pregnancy tests to be sure cause they were so faint. I went to the clinic and they did the pregnancy tests and it came out faint, but I was pregnant. If not sure then schedule appointment to see the doctor.

There are a few reasons for faint lines on an at-home pregnancy test. You could have taken the test too soon, your urine was diluted, you were using a sensitive test, or you experienced a chemical pregnancy. To ensure better clarity my suggestion is to buy a more expensive test that clearly reads "pregnant" or "not pregnant" or you could buy some other form of a digital test. That will help with any confusion that might occur with pregnancy tests that require you to read lines or dots that may appear faint. If you do have positive result and it is faint, it is quite possible that you are pregnant. Wait a couple of days and try again to see if you get clearer results.

Any line that indicates that you are positive even a faint line means that pregnancy horomones were detected so you are pregnant.

Even if it is very faint in color if it is there it is positive. I had one once and it was the faintest line, you could barely see it , and I was pregnant.
