I got a gray line

has anyone here used the Answer Early pregnancy test and had uncertain results? I got a couple tonight and since I am due to see AF in 4 days and the test said it works as soon as four days before.... well, I took it and at first it seemed negative but then a faint line formed... it wasn't red, it was almost gray. it showed up at three minutes so I know it wasn't an evap line. i was excited because i thought it was a positive, but now that I've had time to think I am unsure since it was not bright or really color- just gray with a hint of pink.
Anyone been there?

Re: I got a gray line

I have the second test to use and it tests at 25 miu and the digital tests I've seen test at 40 and 50. I guess I'll have to do what I hate the most and wait. lol. I am so impatient. I have had evap lines before, but never in the first three minutes and I've never used Answer brand before. I'm not sure if this is normal and I just didn't know...?

Have you ever checked out www.peeonastick.com ? They have a LOT of info on Pg tests and what different things mean, and specific info on different brands. Good luck!

Re: I got a gray line

yeah those are evap lines

I've seen alot of them this week. I even had a Target test show slightly + but that was an evap line as well. If its PINK then its a faint +. If its white/grey, its an evap or the antibody strip in which the color is supposed to show up on. If you look here http://www.peeonastick.com/hpt/answer.html

It says "Not very sensitive; best if used after missed period." It also states the sensitivity is 100 MIU so that is DEF. not something you'd get an early + on. Check out how light the 10 dpo and 11 dpo lines are. You can barely see them, but they are pink.
Evap lines are the debil, and i know because I've gotten 5 this week alone! Waiting on blood test results to come back this afternoon.
