EVAP or BFP?

Postby betty077 » Wed Mar 08, 2017 5:46 am

Hey guys, I got a faint second line within the 5min timeframe for the first time ever on a HPT and I'm wondering if it's just an EVAP?

I hear a lot of people that go through the same thing. How long should I wait to test again?
Like to get a really dark evident red line to confirm 100% pregnancy?

Like if its a BFP should it be dark tomorrow or the day after?
Any thoughts? Just don't want to get my hopes up with all the sad EVAP stories you see on this site :(

Hi Betty. If you got the faint second line within the 5 min period, it should be a true BFP. Evaps are from walking away and checking the test hours later after the urine has evaporated (they tend to be colorless). I'm not sure what cycle day you are or how sensitive the test you used was, but you might get a stronger line with a more sensitive test. Otherwise you just have to wait as hcg builds up in your bloodstream and urine. It should double every two days, giving you a slightly darker and darker line. Good luck!!!

Hii guys. Thanks for the replies.

I can't take a photo just yet. But to be honest the camera probably won't catch it. That's how faint it is.

I'm 15dpo. AF was due yesterday. So If it doesn't show up, I'll test tomorrow with FMU. Got a HPT from the pharmacy that says it can detect pregnancy 6 days before period. So I'm hoping that's sensitive enough to give me a clear result tomorrow.

So nervous. Hoping it's a BFP. :) Guess I've another day to wait as if the tww wasn't torture enough hahaha

Ok so I took another hpt today and the same thing happened
Light very faint line showed up at 4 minutes.
So I think I should take it as an evap

AF is 3 days late so if I was pregnant surely it'd be dark enough to see it clearer?

Anyways
I guess I'm out this month
Just wish AF would show up already
I hate waiting hahaha

I've been using pink tests. This is what they've looked like.. but it takes about 4 minutes to get this result. Is it an evap??? I've no symptoms at all. Other than af is 4 days late. What do you all think?

Ps I know it's so so so so so faint.
Its faint in person as well. But just a tad bit clearer.
But I guess know you can tell why I'm not calling it a "bfp"
I've taken 3 tests and all had that result at 4 mins.

The tests say to wait 3 only. So is it an evap?

Hey Betty077, I saw your name over here and I was like oh my did she get the 'BFP'!!!

First off I'm sorry you are dealing with this. We think if we hold off and AF doesn't show and we test it should be definitive YES or NO, no guessing games please!!

So I would be WEIRD to get THAT many evap lines. Right... And it looks like a line to me. I know that you are frustrated because you are 17dpo and it should be dark. BUT with no AF and a slight line I would think you are pregnant. I would go get blood drawn and test. Unless you are more patient then just wait 2 more days (when HCG doubles) and test again if no AF.

Good Luck and keep us posted!!

I don't think it is an evap. Some tests take longer for the second line to show (like the BFP brand for example - really good tests but they take longer). You're not out until she shows, please update if you poas again.

Hi,

I see that line :) what time limit do the instructions say? I'd say it's time to get a FRER as that looks like a BFP to me

Hey guys. Thanks for all the replies. Seriously this website is helping me cope with all this so much lol

The tests say to read results at 3 minutes.
But at 3.. they were all BFN's
But at 4 or 5 mins they showed that faint line.
That's why I'm so iffy about it. Not sure what to think

I have 1 more hpt left .. so I'll wait and test again in a couple of days like you mentioned. I've waited this long right?

Lol

To be honest though.. this is my only normal feeling cycle. I have absolutely no weird strange feelings or symptoms

Just AF being stubborn.
