Home Pregnancy Tests and Faint Lines


  I took an Equate pregnancy test and the faintest line appeared - then in the past coupel of days I have taken an EPT, Clear Blue Easy, Anser Plus and Fact Plus and all have come out NEGATIVE.  I even had a qualitative blood test done 2 weeks after possible conception and it came out negative.
  Is that too soon to have a qualitative test done?  Why would one test (EQUATE) show a very faint line and the other 4-5 tests have shown neagtive - no lines at all.  I have taken all my tests first thing in the morning.
  Have you heard anything about Equate or if it has evaporation lines or false positives?  
  Any ideas as to why I have gotten all other negatives and what are the chances I am pregnant?
  Thanks!

Dear Betsy:
I have no experience to report with Equate. A qualitative pregnancy test done on blood will be positive 2 weeks following conception. I have experience with EPT and Clear Blue Easy: they are reliable tests and do not give false positive reports.
