Positive HPT has faded away overnight
Does this mean anything?

So I got a positive yesterday arvo on a crystal clear early response HPT, it was a fairly obvious, colored line. I posted photos to another "can you see a line" thread on EB and all posters who commented agreed it was positive.  ddance.gif

The positive line came up pretty much straight away.

So, I get up this morning and go to stare at the positive line lovingly (as you do) and it has gone! Poof! Disappeared overnight.

Where did it go?

Some people might find this a bit yuck, but I kept the fifty-two positive HPTs from DS and I was looking at them yesterday and they are still all positive.

Does this void yesterday's positive?

PS. Yes, I am a crazy p*ss stick analyser.

It does not void the positive.

I think I remember this happening with my first, with the lines that were really faint at the start. Take another test and see what happens!

Take another test. My FR have all stood the test of time but my
IC has already faded to barely visible.

I did take another test this morning, same brand, and it has come up with another faint, but definate, positive.

It depends on the brand, but HPTs are only accurate between 3 and 10/20 minutes after the test.  Don't worry if it fades, it could just be the makeup of the test.

That tells you a lot more than a faded test original.gif

Crystal clear is unreliable.  They often throw up false positives.  I would test using first response or a brand that does not use blue dye.

the crystal clear tests I used for this pg faded pretty quickly. The blue dye doesnt last as long as the others I have found. If you want to keep the tests go for one that has better dye as all my others I have done are still clear even the faint ones.

Thanks blueynat, that's reassuring.

It would be positive....I think even on the instructions it says that the first result is the correct one and that any change to the result after a certain time is not valid.  But as reassurance I would take another test.
Good Luck
