faint line on a pregnancy test

Harini i ada rasa stomach cramp and tak sedap badan. Last period was on 5th june. So agak2 dah lewat 2 hari je baru. Tapi gatai jugak nak buat home pregnancy test (urine). So i used my first morning urine..

and appeared like this after 3 - 4 minutes.

Just a faint line.( Sory bad image;p)

And i went to see the doc just now...around 3.30 p.m and turned out negative. Tapi doc tu mcm pelik sket. She said no need to wait until 4-5 minutes ke apa..kalau betul preggy a few seconds je dah nampak the second line. But internet and the explanation on the home pregnancy kit tell me
differently. And she didn't take my words seriously bila i cakap pagi tadi buat test 2 kali dua2 ada 2 line tapi faint je la.

Confident abis doc tu i x preggy and macam nak cepat2 je i keluar. Dahla pompuan. Tapi makcik2 la..dats y malas nak layan ckp byk2 ngan dia. Dia ingat i baru2 kawin and terlebih excited nak first baby kot tapi bila i kata i dah ada baby setaun 9 bulan barula sebok nak entertain. Apa punya pesen la mak cik oii..pangkah la klinik ni.huhu.

I dun really mind if i'm not pregnant..tapi i bengang dengan layanan doc tu..nak kata tak cukup ilmu dah ada title Dr and ada klinik sendiri. haihh..

Btw, this is what i got from the internet:

What does a faint line on a pregnancy test mean?

On a pregnancy test, a faint test line - or color band - is usually indicative of a positive result, as long as it's read within the allotted time frame - or reaction time of the test (usually at 5-10 minutes). If you do the pregnancy test properly and read it within the recommended time, then a faint and weak line is very likely a positive pregnancy test. Explanations for a faint positive line include:

  • You may be testing too early after conception - the hCG in your body may not be at a sufficient level for test detection. hCG doubles every two days, so wait and test again using first morning urine.
  • Different test sensitivity. As tests detect hCG at different levels, a faint line on one variety of test may appear as a stronger line on a 20 mIU test.
  • Urine dilution. Your urine may be diluted due to frequent urination or consumption of liquids. First morning urine is recommended for pregnancy testing as it contains the most concentrated presence of hCG.
  • Chemical pregnancy. Sometimes, an early pregnancy is detected - followed by negative test results. A chemical pregnancy means implantation takes place followed by a miscarriage - usually before any other pregnancy symptoms are detected.

So okla.doa2la i ada rezeki..kalau tak de pun tak pe..ketentuan Allah;)
