Just lurking here and thought you ladies can help. I tested on 8DPO(I know this is early but a got a positive this early with my son) and got a faint but very clear positive. I tested the next morning (thought FMU would give me a darker line) and it came out negative. Tested again this morning at 10DPO and again got a negative. Was my first test just a false positive? Was it just a bad test? They were all the same brand. I would be ok with this not being my month but I just go so excited after that positive that it is now a huge let down.

I'm inclined to think that you just need to give it some more time. If that one was faint, you're more likely to be getting false negatives now rather than a false possitive earlier. That's just what I think though.

Good luck!

how long did you wait to read the first test? If you waited 10 min it could have been an evaporation line.

Wait another week and test again. Or make a doctor appt and ask for a quanitiative blood test.

I got the positive line immediately with the first test. I know, I need to wait....it is just so hard!!! Thanks for your replies!
