What does it mean if on a pregnancy test there was one solid line and a clear pink line for the test line but it is hard to see?

Most pregnancy tests say that even a faint line confirms pregnancy.

A pregnancy test checks for how much hCG (a pregnancy hormone) is in your system - usually detectable 6-12 days after fertilisation. A test taken before your period is due might not show any hCG, even if you're pregnant, because it's too soon. Similarly, your hCG levels might still be low when you take a test - but any hCG says you're pregnant. (The exception is if you're having hCG injections to help you conceive.) So a faint line means the levels are there, but low. HOWEVER: you can also get "evaporation lines". That happens if you check the test after the 3-5 minute period advised (or whatever the manufacturer says) or if you use a test that's past its best-by date. If neither of these are the case, you're probably pregnant.

If you want confirmation, wait a couple of days and take another test, or visit a clinic which might have more sensitive tests available.

one line was clear and the other was pink on a pregnancy test does that mean anything

I got that too. It seems that accu-clear has a rep for not being very reliable. I'd try another brand of test if I was you.

ok i just took an at home pregnancy test and the results were hard to read light the line was reall llight and you could see another line there but it was really hard to see When you do a HPT read the instructions carefully. Make sure the absorbent tip is properly soaked and then put the cap on within one minute. You shold see a clear line, or two if pregnant.

I heard that before and they said it is an evaporation line from the urine mixing with the dye.

No, if the solid line is on your side, you're not allowed to pass.

A solid white line is the marker on the middle of the road. You cannot cross a solid white line. You cannot pass out traffic.

i think it means you could be pregnant but it is too early to say. if i were you i would see your doctor

User Avatar

If you see two lines, regardless of how light or dark, it means there are hormones in your body that are present during pregnancy. It's very unlikely to have false positives with pregnancy tests, but if you think it's wrong, you should probably make an appt with your doctor as they can give you a more accurate answer. Otherwise, congratulations on your pregnancy!

What does a double solid yellow line in the center of the highway mean What does a double solid white line in the center of the highway mean?

User Avatar

As long as there is a line in the result window, even if faint, it is positive for pregnancy.

User Avatar

Yes, it's illegal to cross any solid line

User Avatar

no it doesnt matter how feint - the line indicates that the test has detected HGC (pregnancy hormone) in you urine therefore you are pregnant! The line gets stronger as time goes on in a healthy pregnancy

A solid line means no passing on your side; a broken line means that you can pass.

User Avatar

If the solid line is on your side, it means no passing. If the broken line is on your side, it means passing is OK (but be careful).

Personally any puter with a solid state hard drive with tons of memory and a top of the line game card.
