Menstruation 4 Days Late But The Results Of The Testpack Are Vague?
, I want to ask my menstrual cycle usually goes forward every month this month I was only about 4 hours late I tried checking using the TP this morning the results were 2 lines with a second faint line.. I’m still curious about buying a different brand with an interval of 2 hours (after the first test) the next result is only 1 line.. is that whether I am positive or negative, while my stomach has been hurting for a few days like I want to menstruate and get tired easily..thank you
Hello rosadi, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
There are several things you need to pay attention to when using a test pack (TP). TP is a pregnancy test that detects the pregnancy hormone called hCG in the urine. This tool can detect hCG when the level of this hormone is high enough in the urine. TP examination should be done using the first urine in the morning because this first urine is the most concentrated urine and if pregnancy does occur, this first urine has the highest hCG level. Of your two tests, the more accurate result is likely the first one. However, you also need to know that you should not read the TP results more than 5 minutes after the TP has been dipped in urine. Reading the results for more than 5 minutes can give a false positive result (see 2 lines on the TP even though you are not pregnant).
Seeing these possibilities, you should try to repeat the TP in 3 days if you have not menstruated. Do the test using the first pee in the morning and make sure you read the results no later than 5 minutes after the dip. If the result is 2 more lines, it means you are indeed pregnant, if the result is negative, it means that your menstrual delay may be caused by something other than pregnancy.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
