With DT pregnancy tests, after a positive, if you waited like 10 minutes and looked at it again, would your pos line kinda blend?

I've never taken a Dollar Tree pregnancy test, due to the fact, I never knew if they worked, but I know you're not supposed to read results after so long...

I have never taken one, but I vote that you are indeed pregnant!

From peeonastick.com:



13. The line disappeared after the time limit! Is it still positive?



A positive result will generally stay positive for 48 hours. Some very faint lines may fade and become difficult to see, however. Note: sometimes a line will appear briefly as the dye in the test passes over the area where a positive result would show. This is not a positive result.



My suggestion: as soon as urine is applied to your test, set a stopwatch for 9 minutes, 45 seconds. Place the test on a flat, dry surface and walk away. When the alarm goes off, read the test from the same distance you would read a book-- allow 15 seconds to examine the test. If there is a pink line (or blue, obviously, if your test uses blue dye), you are pregnant. If there is no line at the 10-minute mark, you are not pregnant or you are testing too early and there is not enough hCG to be detected in your pee. Note: women who have experienced the current "disappearing positive" phenomenon often had a positive result at the 10-minute mark, only to have the line disappear minutes or hours after that. The vast majority of these women have not been pregnant.



If you really get what looks like a true positive, and it disappears, I suggest calling the manufacturer and asking for their input. They may compensate you for the test as well.

I used a DT test - BFP. It was indeed correct.



Did you get a positive?!

If you just had a baby a month ago....I wonder if your HCG level could still be slightly elevated?
