8DPO scratch like second line on FRER?

Hi ladies,

I'm just visiting from the November 09 and 11 birth groups to ask a question please?

I have felt some pregnancy symptoms the past couple of days and decided to test. We only DTD once, which was roughly 8-9 days ago.

I am not TTC and therefore not in tune with my fertility signs.

The test (FRER) showed a second, faint, scratch-like line which is slightly crooked, within about 2 minutes. I'm just concerned that it's not straight, it tilts to the left at the bottom.

Has anyone ever experienced this? My ther 2 kids I only got a faint + at 9dpo but never tested before then.

Is the line pink?

Do you have a pic? I'd just wait a few more days & retest with another box. You could have had a bad batch of tests...

The line was too pale and thin to tell if it was pink.

Also I think it was a faulty test because I took it apart which I know you're not supposed to, and it appeared to be a scratch on the clear plastic component, not the white test strip.

Would have been nice, but never mind!
