Q: faint negatives, & still no af.

Aching back, broke out, abdominal pressure, this morning i woke up with a cold sore, and i was suppose to start my period today, and nothing.
A week ago I took two HPT, and got a faint negative on both test, you could hardly see the line? What does it sound like to you?

Are you using tests that show + or - and the - line is really faint? You might want to try a different test because that one could be defective.

I've used these test many times, and they've ALWAYS had a strong negative, line, but the last time I took it, the little purple line was smaller thinner then a pencil line, and it was - and very very very light purple, like someone gently colored it in with a purple coloring pencil, when i first saw it i could of swore I saw a + but my boyfriend and mother claim there was nothing there except my very light - line.

Hmm, I'm not sure what you mean by "faint negative." If there is a visible second line (or test line) that is thick, has color, and shows up within the time limit, it is a positive. If that line is faint, people usually call it a faint positive. If the control line is the only line that appears, it doesn't matter if that line is strong or faint--it's a negative (some tests have more dye than others). If no lines show up the test is faulty. If you were testing a week ago it was probably too early, I would test again now that you are late. Good luck!!!
