Bad evap?

Postby hadleym9 » Wed Feb 14, 2018 4:58 pm

I'm back again with another post. I thought what I had was my period, but apparently not, which left me super confused. I've taken so many tests in the past month. My boobs have grown, I'm having similar cramping pains that I had when I was pregnant with my daughter, and I've also been having creamy CM. I checked my cervix today, and it feels low and soft. I can't tell if it's open or closed though. I'm going to my OB tomorrow morning, however I need all the opinions I can get about these two tests that I have taken. These first two photos are of the test I took last night.

This test is the one I took this morning. Any thoughts? Do you see anything on this test? Do these just look like bad evap lines?

If they are taken within the time limit they aren't evaps....sometimes you can have higher hcg levels that will show as faint lines...i recommend chatting with your doctor to figure out what is going on...there are definite lines in those pictures....but the not getting darker is the real issue....

I went to my OB today and they checked me and did a pregnancy test as well, and it came out negative there. When I came back home, a few hours later I decided to take the last pregnancy test just to see what the results were, and I got another faint positive within the time limit. I'm so confused, but I'm probably going to go get a different brand of tests to see if those come out positive or not.

Usually the urine tests at a doctors office are not as sensitive as the tests you are using. It could be that you have slightly higher hcg levels that show on sensitive tests. Only a blood test can tell you what your actual hcg levels are at.

Thank you for letting me know that! If I'm still getting faint positive tests on Monday, I think I will go ahead and ask for a blood test.

It ended up being a terrible evap! I started bleeding (again) on the 20th. I went to my OB and it was negative, but I think I might have already mentioned that on here.
