Knowing it's an evap can be tricky. Experience is the biggest help in knowing. Many of us on here have taken more HPTs than we care to admit. Also, seeing BFPs on here let you know what they "should" look like.

With the blue dye tests, typically an evap will be much thinner than a BFP would be. Also, blue dye tests are infamous for giving false positives, which can be thick. The only way to know it's a false positive is by backing it up with a "better" test such as a pink dye Answer or First Response Early Result (FRER), or by getting blood drawn at your doctor's.

With ICs (internet cheapies), an evap/false positive/indent can be thinner, it can also not have color and appear sort of grayish. It may also be too close to the control line, or too far away. Again, the best way to know for sure is to back this test up with a name brand test.

These are all from this cycle. I'm calling them false positives since I'm not sure when or if I even oed. Whether I had another chemical or was never pg, my tests are all bfn now so I'm pretty sure these were just big fake positives!!

Here are some answer brand from a few cycles back. One is an evap and one is a false pos because it showed immediately as the dye went acr<a href="http://s745.photobucket.com/albums/xx97/nikki121703/?action=view¤t=SU1HMDAwMjYtMjAxMDA3MjgtMTMwMS5qcGc.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i745.photobucket.com/albums/xx97/nikki121703/SU1HMDAwMjYtMjAxMDA3MjgtMTMwMS5qcGc.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>oss.
