White/gray test line on FRER!? Kairi's Mama! (TTC #2) TTC since May 2012; 1 child; 1 angel baby; California 712 posts

Hi ladies, so I took a FRER on CD28 which was the 22nd of this month and the day before AF was due the test was a BFN. But AF never showed and I'm on CD34 as of today with no AF. I've recently been having super sore b**bs which I had with my daughter and never had it throughout 11 months of TTC so this is different which gives me hope. But anyways, I tested today with the 2nd FRER from the same box and a gray/white line showed up immediately as the test was running through the strip. This line showed before it got to the control line and stayed after the control line showed as well. The line is obviously there. Any one experience this?

Sounds like the spot where the line WOULD be is just showing up. But it doesn't sound like a positive, IMO.



ETA, the antibody strip! Someone else said it. I couldn't think of the word.
But yeah, that's all it sounds like to me.

Grey/white lines are just evaps. Get a new one and test again.

Do you have a picture?

IDK, but I think the line should be pink... shouldn't it?

Sounds like the antibody strip to me.

Negative, it happened to me and I called and they sent me coupons for free tests :).

This sucks... I read a handful of stories where they slowly turned into BFP. Or they turned into faint BFP with answer tests. Thought it may be something because the two tests I took were from the same box.

I would go buy another one and test again in the morning with FMU

Those stories are just coincidences though, unfortunately. They tested too early, got a negative, and then tested later and got positives. White doesn't mean anything.

I've been having issues with frer over the last 6 months or so. Before then I've never had an evap while using them, nowadays there's always a line, even within the timeframe and I'm not pregnant. It's a pain. No idea why it's changed.
