    Default Need some help on pregnancy tests

    Hi everyone, just need some advice on pregnancy tests I have taken this week. I first bought Crystal Clear Test which contained 2 tests and with the first one I didn't use morning urine. The next morning I tested with the second stick and in a 3 -5 min time mar it only showed up one line...I didn't think much of it so I threw it in the bin. 3 hours later I decided to check it or what reason I don't know and I saw a second line but it was faint blue. So then that afternoon I went to purchase First Response hpt and the first was negative as I used this in the afternoon, then did another one in the morning and that was negative and the third one did 3 hours later as I didn't go to the toilet since and had no fluids and that showed negative. I don't know what to make of this as I have been off birth control pill for 4 weeks and my nipples feel slightly sore, I have not had a period since off my birth control, I feel constipated and nauseous often. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    With all those negative tests I would take it that you aren't pregnant. 3hrs past test time is too long and I would not take a faint line as a positive. If you think you are pregnant head to the Dr for a blood test.

    I agree with this.

    Crystal Clear (and other blue dye tests) are DREADFUL for false positives, never use them again and stick to FRER, they really are the best.

    Firstly, it is impossible to have a false positive unless you are on hcg hormone support for IVF etc. hpts measure the level of the hormone hCg. If you are nit pregnant your body does not produce this hormone, so it can't be measured.

    3 hours after a test you would have seen an evaporation line.

    How long after your AF was due are you? If you are having symptoms, your hCg level may not be high enough yet to be detected by the urine tests. Some ladies do not get positive hpts until after AF is due, and sometimes for a while after that.

    Always use fmu.

    Good luck.

    Don't buy crystal clear, I got a bright blue second line on one. I then did a FRER an hour later, thinking I was finally pg. Stark white BFN. It was a false positive.

    Generally it's true but not always. I will show my crystal clear, which came up straight away..... and this pic wasn't a good one, it was much more bright blue IRL
