    Default No control line at 10mins, 2 strong lines later?

    Hi all,
    I've been stalking the board for a little while now but haven't really worked up to posting! We've been TTC for 3 months but not temping or using OPKs or anything so I felt a little silly posting with nothing to share or contribute!

    I'm now 3 days late and have managed to hold off testing until this morning. I think I'm about 16 dpo. I tested this morning with FMU and not even the control line showed up within half an hour. I thought I must have completely missed with the absorbent tip and have held on all day to test again this afternoon now that I'm home from work. Lo and behold when I get home, the test I did this morning (it's a FRER) is now showing 2 very strong lines! As I've been at work I don't know when they showed.

    So I have tested again this afternoon and the test is negative, control line showing up inside the time.

    Anyone had this happen? I've heard of evap lines but I thought they were normally faint or gray? This is a very dark pink, only a little lighter than the control line.

    I'll work out how to post a pic (I'm on my iPad) and post a pic of both.

    Has anyone had this before?

    Sounds like the first was a dud maybe, being late who knows.
