Taking a home pregnancy test is always a nail-biter. When you take the test and what the lines in the window show will greatly influence how accurate the results are.

In particular, when it comes to checking — and rechecking — whether or not their efforts to have a baby have been successful, eager parents-to-be are not known for their patience. If you’re one of their number, chances are you’ve accumulated and frequently use home pregnancy tests.

Home pregnancy tests can be confusing, especially if you’re very early in your pregnancy, despite the fact that they’re an inexpensive, simple to use, and convenient way to determine if you’re expecting. Here is a explanation of what those tiny lines or plus signs mean.

What is the Test Line on a Pregnancy Test?

If hCG is found in your urine, the test line will appear on your at-home pregnancy test. The test did not detect hCG and you are probably not pregnant if this line does not change color, turning pink for First ResponseTM.

When using a First ResponseTM test, the test line frequently appears paler than the control line, which is occasionally quite dark. If your urine is diluted or you are very early in your pregnancy, a test line may appear faintly pink. Not-to-worry, though. Even a faintly pink-colored test line indicates a positive result. Simply put, it’s time to check in with your doctor to confirm a pregnancy if there is color on the test line.
