Maybe test again using a FRER, last month I used a CB blue dye test and it came up with a faint positive then my period arrived that same day. This month I've been using pink dye IC's and they have been coming up with pink "evap lines" , I got AF today. So from my experience I will not trust any kind of test unless my period is late, or if I was to get a solid dark line I might be more convinced.

How many DPO are you? If you're testing before expected AF you should use first morning urine as it's more concentrated.

Dh and I have been ttc our first for around 19 or 20 months now, so believe me, I understand your pain. We are seeing a specialist on Thursday but it breaks my heart that we haven't been able to conceive on our own. Are you using anything to help? We are using fertility blend for dh's counts, pressed to help his swimmers and I use opk's. I also take folic acid and a multi vitamin (the vitamins are actually for fighting the germs during the cold winter months!)
Don't give up, maybe start looking for help?

IME, this isn't true. Twice in the past year, I've gotten very obvious false positives on blue dye tests.
