    Default Pregnancy Test - Confused

    I tested my urine this morning with Pregnosis Cleara Plus and initially got a negative in the first 3 minutes, then another 5 minutes later I got a faint positive. Does anyone know if the reading is still valid within 10 minutes?

    That has happened to me too but a faint positive is a positive just an early reading... Test again to be sure in a couple of days but I would say it is positive.

    I had a similar thing happen with my fisrt preg test it came up two lines but one was faint so i waited a week tested again. I would would wait a week or two (i know it's hard) and test again. If thats fails get one of those digital tests that tell you pregnant and how far it is along good luck
    Always best to do test in the morining first thing thats when its most concentrated.

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for getting back to me. I was so confused!
    I have already done 2 tests in the past two days (with my morning urine) and got the same result (a faint positive showed up in 8 minutes).

    My period is due in 3 days, so I'll do my best to be patient and do another test then.

    It's a relief to know that I'm not the only one that's had this experience. It can be so confusing.

    Thanks again, I really appreciate your feedback.
    I'll be in touch to let you know if there's any good news.

    That's interesting. The outcome of the various brands of pregnancy tests have different levels of tolerance and capability. Anyway, fingers crossed, hopefully it is a positive outcome this month.

    Thanks for your feedback.
