Pregnancy Test Question

90 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok so I have been feeling quite *bad* these 2 weeks...so I decided to take one of the pregnancy test's that I brought with me, just for a laugh.

I just brought the 2 sticks in their packages, no instructions or the box. I went online to the Fact Plus www to see their instructions. Basically said that if you are positive pregnant then you will have a line in each little box on the tester paralell to each other. OK so I have 2 lines... one in the box marked "C" that is vertical and also one in the box marked "R" but that is not vertical, but horizontal. The more I kept looking at the test and the instructions I am getting confused... is any pregnancy test profis or knowledgable medical person out there that can help me? Am I pregnant or not?

If you used the test I think you might have, then the result is positive, when BOTH lines appear but in the "same direction".

I've never heard of what you describe you're seeing :)

Maybe write to them or call? (Or go to a doctor?)

Good luck!

Yes that is why I donnot know what is going on... I thought the 2 lines have to be paralell...but they are not one is like | and the other like __ ....Soooo I donnow... I donnot think I can call or write them... I am in Algerie. Also there doctors here I donnot think have the technology to tell if someone is pregnant this soon in the game... Hmm I guess I just have to wait until I get back in the States and take yet another one :lol: ... :hehe:

my first reaction was to congratulate you, but out of curiosity I looked this up http://www.factplus.com/DuringFAQs.cfm

"What does it mean if there is a line in the result window but it is running horizontally (left to right)?

A line running horizontally (left to right) should not be interpreted as a positive result. This line might be caused by the streaking of the chemicals as the test progresses. A positive result must have a line that is parallel to the control line."

I think you might have gotten an old or somehow compromised test.

hope you are feeling better soon, though

sigh if you want but it doesn't say you're not pregnant. Do they really not have home tests there? If theres anything universal its reproductive matters so I would expect test kits on the shelf at any store...so does this mean you are def coming back next month?

Well I am def coming back on the 6th..I have to return to my life in Michigan unfortunately and most importantly my daughter...but am planning to return to DZ asap after I settle my affairs... either way if we stay here or live in the USA...we are def trying to make the time apart to a mininum.

Also it is not that I donnot want to have a baby..just maybe not right now. I know the next 6months to a year will be financially stressed for me, so add a baby to that...WOW one whopper of a mess... I really donnot like to go through a pregnancy without my husband by my side if by chance I cannot return to DZ as planned... but if I am pregnant then I am cool. My husband actually says he wants a baby now..says he is too old and got married late in life....Hmmm he is only 30 years old. :unsure: But in any case it *would* a welcomed blessing... just to have rearrange things at that point. :thumbs:
