faint line on pregnancy test

I have taken four different test three of them different brands all come out as a positive but with the faint line. Went to the clinic and their test strip came back negative.  I am still very confused. I don't know what to think or find the right amswer. After few minutes the lines get dark much past the 3 minutes is that also normal?

It is possible you're just very very early! :) In order for even a very faint line to show up, the pregnancy hormone HAS to be present. You can get a false negative but false positives are just really not an option because of how the tests work lol. I would start taking prenatal vitamins and retest in a week or so. Congratulations! You're pregnant. <3

There is a line. So you're most likely pregnant. My cousin took multiple tests all with faint lines. She knew she was pregnant because she's already had one and said if there's a line, you're pregnant, if you're not pregnant there isn't going to be any line. She went to get a clearblu one just in case that clearly states "pregnant" and "not pregnant" & she was right.. she was!

You're really early on. The HGC levels aren't high enough yet to get a presice reading. You're pregnant though, only way you can get any sort of line there is if it reads the hormone. So congrats. Wait a few days if you want, then take another test.

Thanks I am on my way to get some.  That's what my sister said that I am only 4 days late so probably still to early.

Did all your three show up right away positive?  I have a appointment for blood work on the 20th I am just nervous if I get my hopes up and nothing
