In what I know a pregnancy test can detect only testicular cancer and I doubt this is the case for Donna.
The truth is that these tests are awful

I took this test on Tuesday at what I think would have been 7dpo. I took IC the next morning and it was negative. Thoughts??? Is this an Evap??? It was taken within the time limit.

:x this is mine from last month

The frers are awful now! FYI to all you ladies, If you call and still have the box they came in they will send you a coupon to replace the faulty tests! Not that you want to keep using the same brand but it's something...

Sorry that you all have experienced this same issue! Some of those lines looked so promising!

That may be a sign of a chemcical pregnancy. Your body only creates the HCG hormone after conception and thats the only way you get a positive. The fertilized egg may not have implanted, but you might have conceived. I know that may be sad to hear, but it gives you an idea of what may be an issue.
For me, I had a short luteral phase and would get chemical positives. I used some over the counter meds to length my luteral phase (raspberry leaf,prenatals) and thicken my uterine wall and now my luteral phase is 14-16 days, giving a fertilized egg plenty of time to implant. You need a minimum of 9 days to properly implant or you'll have a hard time staying preggers. Hope this helps! Baby dust to you!!

I second this, I am 13 weeks now and when I started testing I used blue dyes first and got a bfn at 8DPO then a veryfaint line that showed way after the ten minute window at 10DPO, took another later that day and the same thing happened. I went out and bought a box of frers and the first at 10 DPO was so faint it didn't even really have any color. I tested at 11 DPO with an ept blue dye and didn't see ANYTHING until many hours later. Did another frer the next morning and had just a tinge of pink at the top & bottom of the line. By 13 DPO you could finally see the real pink line. Any color at all is bc of hcg, could be chemical pregs. As a chemist I can attest to the fact that indicator based tests don't just exhibit a color change without the chemical (or pH change) present.

I took a FRER test yesterday morning but when I took it out of packet, something was rattling around inside (like something was broken). I wasn’t overly busting and thought the test was token so just gave it a go anyway. Not much pee came out, like only a drop or two. I decided to pull it apart and see what was making the rattling sound. Then I noticed the testing strip was hardly wet so I waited then peed on it again. Assuming it was now a dud, I just put it aside and forgot all about it. Then I had a look this morning, just out of curiosity, and there was a definite pink line! I’m hoping it’s positive but know it could be an evap considering I looked way after the time, and that I used two different attempts of pee. Anyone else had this happen? Honest thoughts about the line?

Your test is invalid.You took it out of the case and peed on it for the second time even if ur pregnant you can trust this test.test again.

I took a FRER this morning, a day before my blood test and three days before my period is to start. I waited three minutes, didn't see a second line, finished up in the bathroom. When I was about to throw out the test I saw a faint pink line. Got hopeful but now am realizing it might be an evaporation line. I'd love to have your input!

I'm overwhelmed and excited to share that I got a BFP from the dr's office. Obviously it's super early and I'm trying to be cautious with my joy but I sobbed for about an hour during and after the phone call. My HCG is 109...is that good?

Congratulations! You're still early so I'd say 109 is very good.
