Ok ... I'm probably going to sound like an absolute moron here but; here goes ...
I took a pregnancy text this morning; left it on the bathroom sink & as it was 'ready for school time', completely forgot to check results within time.
Came back few hours later & there was an extremely faint positive ....I have googled & looked for info regarding this & some people have said this has happened to them after checking test for a few hours & they were actually PREGNANT.Apparently (which I had no idea it even existed) ...it's an evaporation line.
Has this happened to anyone, any result neg or pos.
Just want to see if you have left pregnancy test past alloted time and it was infact positive?

I still have my 10 dpo test I did with my DS (who is 7) and there's still a very faint line, exactly like what I saw the morning I peed on it. I think evap lines are very few and far between. Do you have another one to do in the morning?

Hasn't happened to me, but I think you have to disregard the test after 10mins. I would say test again, as you can't really rely on that test. Good luck!

Also, just to let you know, you may want to ask this question in the opks, hpts, etc forum area, as that is specific to asking questions about these tests original.gif
