Okay, so POAS this morning.  It's an oracle fertility IC HPT.

Weird thing is, no line is visible normally.  However, if you tilt it into lighting, you can see something of a line.  DH sees it too but thinks it might be remnants of a test line (which I suppose women would call those 'evaporation lines').

What are your thoughts?

I've added photos, I find that you need to sit back in your chair (i.e., not too close to the comp monitor) to see the mystery (dud) line that I'm on about.

Here is the original:

I'm having really awful back pain this morning too sad.gif I noticed this BEFORE doing any testing (so it isn't me just being hopeful! haha)

Thanks for your help/opinions ladies original.gif

I can see what you are talking about on my phone.

It could be a positive.  I say grab a FR and test with FMU tomorrow.  If it is positive it should show up quite easily then.

Good luck OP.

I can see lines on both, but can see the line better on the first one.

Good luck!

Good luck! I don't want to be a party pooper but I have had evaps on those tests that look similar. I just bought a new brand because I don't trust them anymore. I have also seen other people's lines like that turn into positives though!

I can't see it either.  Buy a FR and you'll know for sure.  Best of luck.

I can see it on both on my laptop.  I would also say go and get a FR.  I think this is the most likely way to know for sure. How many DPO are you?

I would buy a FR or confirm as I honestly have had so many lines like that on those tests and I dont trust them. They showed up like that this month and it looked like a evap bought a confirm test the same day and it was a dark +ve.
Good Luck I will be  ph34r.gif to see what happens

Hey all, so an update:
Today I'm 10DPO and I tested using both brands..

oracle ICs did the same thing where the outline of al line came up (more obvious today actually), whereas the FRER was a complete BFN.  So I guess it's just the ICs then...?

I might test tomorrow and then thereafter give the whole POAS thing a break until after AF is due.

Thanks for taking the time to give me your opinions.  If it weren't for them, I wouldn't have gone out to get the FRER, so they really have helped original.gif

I will be ph34r.gif for updates. I'll have everything crossed for you, really hoping this is your month.  As PP said above, it's still early days so you are still in with a good chance.
