My now ex boyfriends condom slipped off (yes, same condom
Issues.we never found a good one but in a year only twice has one slipped all the way off.)

This happened About a week before my
Period was due. He noticed right
Away and had not finished. I got myself all worked up and took plan b, but about 48 hrs later...

My period came on the sixth. Mostly brown blood...noticed dark brownish red blood only once...lasted for a few days. I took two pregnancy tests during this time and both showed a very strong control line and a very fait negative line in thetest window. I have tried to Look up what a Faint line may mean but there Are so many brands, it's been hard and...scary. I used a two pack Kroger brand
Test. That shows a plus for pregnant and a negAtive
For not pregnant.

Is a negative line always a negative no matter how faint?

I know my actual risk was pretty low...but with such a weird
Period...and those two faint negative a little unsure as to what that means.

Is it possible im pregnant? Should i take the tesf a third time?

Thanks for your insight....

A negative line should be a negative line, regardless of whether it looked a little faint. But to double check, you can always get a test from another brand to see if that result is more clear.

But also does not sound like you had much of a pregnancy risk: if your partner did not ejaculate, you basically used withdrawal, which has a perfect use rate of about 96%, and then you backed that up with EC.
