Hi last month I had sex with my boyfriend for the first time on the last day of my period. We used a condom for all genital contact and it did not break. A couple weeks after that I didn't feel so well so I took a pregnancy test which was negative. After that my period was a few days late so I took a few more tests, all of which were negative. The last test I took a white/grey line showed up where the positive would be if there were one. Later that day I started what seemed to be my period. It lasted 6 days and was heavy and cramping. Ever since that line though I've been really paranoid and have been convincing myself I have symptoms. Can someone explain to me what happened?

If you have questions about a specific type of pregnancy test, then the best thing to do is to call the manufacturer and ask. There's usually a phone number on the package somewhere for just that reason. All brands of pregnancy tests are different, so we can't possibly tell you what happened with this one, but given all the negative tests you had and the fact that you have had a period, it's pretty clear that you are not pregnant.
