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

What does the inside strip of a clear blue digital pregnancy test look like when it's positive?

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.

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.

What does it mean if you took a pregnancy test and the positive line was faint then a few hours later it came up negative?

Usually, a test has a window of time in which it should be read. Results after this time are unreliable. In general, a line, no matter how faint, usually indicates pregnancy unless there are one of the conditions that cause a false positive present. These are usually listed on the instruction sheet. It would be a good idea to retest, and note how long the results for that particular test are reliable.

Is a cheap C.V.S pregnancy test a good test?

I'm not exactly sure, but I got that one as the first one I tried when I thought I could be pregnant. I got a very faint pink positive. Didn't think anything of it until a couple days later I found out a faint line is still a positive. Then I got a 2 pack of Clearblue, one negative, one faint positive. So I got yet another hpt, this time a First Response and both of those came up negative. I've heard that the cheap ones are just as good though. Just stay away from the plus/minus tests...I've read those have a lot of false positives.
