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?
Blood testing is very accurate, so I would say it is pretty reliable.
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.
Could be you got a bad test. Did you check the expiration date on it?
Have you heard anything about Equate or if it has evaporation lines or false positives?
Could be just that, thats why I have always recommended a second test when there are very faint positives.
Any ideas as to why I have gotten all other negatives and what are the chances I am pregnant?
Pregnancy not likely with all of the negatives, especially the blood test.
Thanks!
