Can a faint line mean that you are pregnant?

If you see a faint pink line on the home pregnancy test kit, you are tested positive. Pink line means that it has detected the presence of HCG in your urine and it means that you are pregnant. However, if you are not yet sure of this faint line result, you can go ahead and take another pregnancy test in a day or two.

Actually mostly home pregnancy test kits measure the presence of pregnancy hormone hCG present in your urine. Pregnancy hormone medically known as hCG is a hormone that your body starts producing as soon as any egg fertilize in your body.

Percentage of Pregnancy hormone increase day by day and if you test pregnancy after 2-3 days of your missed period then you can get more accurate result as by this time your body have enough hCG quantity to measure your pregnancy.

Reasons for the faint line on the pregnancy test kit?

  1. You are taking the test too early: In case you have taken the pregnancy test too early, then there are chances for the faint line to show up. As your pregnancy proceeds, you will notice the line becoming darker than before. You must know that HCG in urine is responsible for showing the pink lines on the strip and its amount doubles every few days in pregnant women. So earlier tests may show faint lines which means that you are in the earlier stages of your pregnancy. It is advised to not take the test before at least 10 days after missing your first period.
  2. Diluted urine: Most of the home- pregnancy kits available in the market today show accurate results when used at any time during the day but it is advised to take the test in the morning because the urine is concentrated during this time and you will get better results as well.
  3. Pregnancy Test Kit is expired: Before taking this crucial test, make sure that the test kit is not expired and always check the expiry date before proceeding any further.
  4. Do not let the urine evaporate: If you didn’t know this already, then urine has a tendency to evaporate from the strip. Make sure that there is no wind flowing in the surroundings and you can have more accurate results. Faint lines can appear due to evaporation as well.

Note: Do not confuse evaporation line with a faint positive pregnancy test. As your urine dries on the pregnancy test strip, a faint pink line may appear which can be easily misunderstood as a positive pregnancy. Hence, you should always make sure to read the results of the test within the prescribed time frame.

    Almost 2 months ago I was experiencing pregnancy symptoms. My aunt saw me and she said that I could be pregnant. So to get out of doubts I took a test and came out negative. Then I took a blood work and also came out negative. I then took 3 more home test and still negative. But the symptoms were driving me nuts… So on Tuesday last week I took another one and came out a very fainted positive blue line. And I took one this morning and came out negative. I just want to know what is the meaning of this. I need to know if is positive or negative.

      Hi Aeisha,

      You said that last Tuesday you had a pregnancy test and it was a faint positive and last morning test was negative then I would suggest that you should consuly your Gync and share the status. She will definitely give you proper medical reason of false positive or faint positive pregnancy test result.

    Ive been having symptoms, so I took a an early response hpt this morning and there was a very faint positive line for a few seconds and then as soon as the control line appeared, the positive line disappeared and the test read negative. Does this still count as a positive test or is it truly negative? My period is scheduled to start in 5 days or so.
