So confused. Showed up within a minute, but everyone is saying the test line isn't in the correct spot. Please help!

Is this a typical evap from $tree tests?! Wasn't there within about 7 mins so I put it in cabinet but looked a couple hours later (I know, big no no:( ) just curious if this is a typical evap??!?!

I would say that is typical. Evaps tend to be either colorless, too skinny of a line or a line in the wrong place. Edited for spelling.

This post was a good idea, but with so many people posting pics of their could be BFP's for advice on whether it's pos or neg, it ends up not being a post that's used as intended and I can't compare my 'evaps' with a bunch of possibly pos mixed in here. Would be better to post the possible BFP's in a different area, then ask for experienced liners, opinions.

I'm pretty sure I just got a false positive... I used equate brand tests and got a positive - only to get a big fat negative on a frer. Sigh, I'm a bit glum about it.

Not sure how easy this is to see on others computers. I can see it perfectly on my phone, but not as well on my laptop. This is the new FRER. I actually contacted them about this eventually. 3 boxes, 3 cycles, and I got this line EVERY SINGLE test. Definitely wasn't pregnant (15 pregnancies in, and I am pretty familiar with faint lines, evaps, false positives, etc), but who wants to be messed with like that??!!

Dowe, I just wanted to stop in and say that when I got my positive on those same $ tree test, that is exactly how my BFP started off and it got more convincing over the next few days. I would keep following up with other tests to compare. Mine showed up outside the time window, but then all three times I have had BFP's they either showed up outside of the time frame, or they were very, very faint but I was 6+ weeks all three times. Just saying that sometimes people don't get standard results, so it should still be considered a possible positive test. Good idea to get a beta drawn! :D

Elo, I saw a line when I tilted my computer screen, but it didn't seem to have any color, keep testing!

Mammy, definite line there and good chance of it being the real deal if it showed up in the time limit, follow up with a FRER!

Lacey, could still be a BFP and the test was just "cut" too short/long etc and that caused it to be misplaced, definitely follow up with another test as it looks to have color and be the right width!

I actually just posted on a different forum. Has anyone had pink evaps on frer within the time limit? It's def pale pink. Hubby actually saw this time lol...and 3 specs of darker pink. I'm still 4 days away from period so I know it's early. I just have only seen grey evaps on frer or indents. Thanks :)

Can anyone advise me??? These happen a bit 20 min after test taken. I feel like I see something during but then by 20 min they're dark pink/purple and thin?? These are dollar tree. I've taken plenty of this brand and I've never seen anything like this?? Thanks!
