I'm hoping someone may know the answer to my question.
I've been having faint positive pregnancy tests. I had one Friday morning, faint but a clear second line. I had a blood test that afternoon. My results were less than 5 hcg
I'm 99.95% sure I'm not pregnant. But I can't figure out why the tests are showing a line.
It's not an Evap line, it's only 3 mins after taking the test.
I had 5000 of hcg to ovulate - but that was 17 days before. Everything indicates it would be gone after 10 days and I had tested it out of my system.
I was taking Progesterone but everything I've read said it would affect a poas test.
Any ideas? I'm really curious.

It could of just been a dud test. If you don't think you are pregnant and your HCG is under 5 then I wouldn't stress cause a blood test is more accurate then a hpt

I had the same thing with FRERs! Unfortunately they are extremely sensitive. I got lines when bloods showed hcg of 2 and 6 with each of these tests.

It makes me wonder how on earth they could pick up such low amounts! This is why I would never trust a squinter again. To me it needs to be dark to be a true positive.
Sorry that you got jerked around by these tests as well. Wish you a bfp in the near future!

How many dpo are you?
I think from memory hcg leaves the blood first then urine so it could just be the last little bit of trigger. Or could you have had a chemical pregnancy?

When I had my early mc I still had a line on my frer with hcg 6

I got bloods done 36 hours after my first BFP and the hcg level was 9.
Pretty sure FRER's pick up all traces of HCG now, although they still claim a sensitivity of 10.

I had no idea the first response tests were so sensitive. I thought they picked up 20+
That's good to know for the future. Will save a lot of heartache.

Not to get your hopes up or alarm.
i got a faint positive following 3 days post missed period. Got to 12 weeks and lost baby.
I think strong positives equal good and faint positives equal Chen pregnancy or babies that are trying to stick but aren't meant to be.
Im no expert though. Ok
