    Default Not reading HPT's after 10 mins...

    I did a HPT this morning and a pink line came up quite quickly. It was definitely pink, and stayed even as the colour moved across the test. I took a pic at 5 mins - ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1414905210.327740.jpg

    IRL it was thick and darkish.

    I left the test and came about about 10 mins after that to this - ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1414905278.365970.jpg

    Nothing on it. I know most HPT's say not to read after 10 mins, but is that more to stop you seeing evaps or can it work both ways? I have been doing these tests a lot this month (to make sure hcg was gone after miscarriage and testing the last few days) and I haven't had anything close to a line at any time....thoughts? I would be very early...

    I can def see the line in your first pic which tells me you have HcG in your system. It may be a case that your levels are clearly low as it's early (and IC's aren't sensitive). Try not to stress and buy a FRER. Even when I had levels of nearly 200 I was getting very faint lines on IC's. Skip them and get a decent test.

    I'm hoping it's a BFP for you as I know you recently had a loss

    Looks like there is a faint line in the first pic. Those internet cheapies aren't the most reliable, can you get a frer and test again?

    Good luck, i hope its a bfp for you

    Keep fingers crossed for you all the same.

    Some tests are more sensitive than others, and everyone's body produces hug differently early on - so today's does not mean not pregnant.
