    Default What does this mean with a Confirm test?

    So I tested today at 8 DPO with a Confirm test. The test window had a purple smudge come up in the corner and it that smudge a white line formed. So the line was white with the purple colour in the background at the bottom. Then the purple background went away after 5 mins and there was nothing.

    Has anyone had this happen? What does it mean? : / I'm confused. I know 8DPO is early but I can't help myself.

    I'd say it was negative. Did you read it in the time frame ?

    Personally I would count that as a negative and test again tomorrow or in a few days (as hard as that is!)

    Yeah, this happened straight away. So the line formed straight away with the purple around it an then the purple faded away after about 5 mins. I thought it might be a negative but I've never had anything come up in that window before.

    How reliable are Confirm tests anyway?

    confirm are not reliable imo, they have given me all sorts of weird evap lines that make it confusing to know if it's positive or negative.
    Get a first response, much more accurate.

    Oh I know. First Response are awesome but Confirm detect 10ml and First Response 25ml. Is there a more reliable test that detects 10ml?

    I would say maybe to much wee on the stick?

    I to have had many issues with confirm and also FERS

    My rule of thumb is to pee mid ****** into a cup and then hold the test for the time frame asked. Lay it down on the packet and leave it. At 5mins I take a pic of it on marco setting and then when its coming up to 10mins I move it onto white paper and take another pic. Yes I love to play with test pics
