What does it mean if you took a pregnancy test and the negative line was faint then an hour later it came up positive but it still was faint?

you can't read a pregnancy test after the time that it says in the instructions, because on some tests you can get a false light positive after the test sits for awhile, this is called an evaporation line. ~pawsalmighty

If you take a pregnancy test and it came out negative and then hours later you look at the test and it is positive are you pregnant?

You need to have a Beta HCQ Qualitative test done to be 100 percent certain wether or not you are pregnant. This is the 'real' pregnancy test that your doctor can order. It is offered as either as a urine sample or a blood sample

The digital pregnancy tests are the same set up as the basic tests. You will urinate on the test (or dip it in your fresh urine) and it will say positive or negative, but if you were to take the test apart the inside has the strip that will show with the one (if negative) or two (if positive) lines. From my experience, sometimes the test will display a negative reading but the strip will be positive with a faint line so always double test a few days later.

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.
