I would consider that positive. But if you are unsure, take another test.

Yes ,if the line is soppose to be pink for positive then a faint pink line indicates positive, the time of day you urinate may be the difference between a strong positive or a weak positive. I would have a serum blood test done to be sure either way.

A positive result occurring after three minutes should be disregarded.

What does it mean when the lines on a pregnancy test is faint?

Any time there is a line where the positive line should be, no matter how faint, is regarded as a positive result. It can be faint because the hCG levels are very low if taken very early in pregnancy or if the baby is not producing adequate levels.

I had severval faint positive tests then just retested and still a very faint line shouldn't the line be getting darker at 5 weeks?

Not necessarily but as long as there is a line, faint or not, you ARE pregnant. Considering that you have taken multiple tests, it's safe to say that you're not just getting a false positive. The line doesn't get darker the more pregnant you are.

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.
