False + on a pink test?

Hi all

So I'm 14dpo and have had an additional temp rise yesterday and today with ZERO AF symptoms. Here's my question...I was curious yesterday because AF didn't show up and she usually does right a way in the morning on 13dpo so I tested with second morning urine on an internet cheapie pink dye test and it was positive! It was a light line but solid and definitely pink and it showed up within the first minute of taking the test. After 43 months of trying with no results I was skeptical so I took a FRER this morning and it was negative. My temp is still high...even a little higher than yesterday which is not normal for me and I still have no AF symptoms. Has anybody experienced a false positive on a pink dye test? I had a similar situation last month but tested with 4 blue dye tests and got a positive on each one of them

A false positive is entirely possible on a pink dye tests. Some of the dollar store tests or cheapie internet tests can be just as faulty as blue dye tests but not all the time. But even on an FRER, there's always that slight possibility that you'll get a false positive. You could also be getting a false negative on the FRER. My advice would be to wait a couple days (I know that is terribly hard) and retest with FMU. HCG should have doubled by than and see what that result is. Good Luck to you!

thanks! I am going to wait another couple of days and test again. Hopefully by then I will have a definite answer!

Fingers crossed for you! :) The way I see it, either of those tests could have been false. Let's hope it's the negative one. :) GOOD LUCK!!!

I have gotten a false positive on a dollar store test before. I have never used an internet test but I have also seen pictures of those with false positives. If you sign up for fertilityfriend (or already have it), you should look through the test gallery. You can search by brand and see pictures of positives and error pregnancy tests. Good luck and I will keep my FX'd for you!! :)
