So I have posted before in another topic that my boyfriend has fingered me before. Whether he (or I at times) had precum on the fingers, I do not know. I am really late for a period, as my last period was June 5th. I must also reiterate that I had a very stressful time during the month of June.

However, here's what I'm concerned about. I took one pregnancy test 7/13, and it had one line. We both examined the test for any faded line, and nothing. I took the other one today (7/19) and it again showed one line. However, directly next to, but not separated from the line, was a little faded part. I don't know if this is because of the dye in the test that could have run or something. But i don't know, and i don't want to get stressed over this.

I'm aware that taking a pregnancy test won't fully prove if i am pregnant or not. I used First Response.

I would appreciate any help or response. Thanks

We can't give users information about how a given brand of pregnancy test works, because they differ so much from brand to brand.

What to do with an issue like this is to call the consumer information line for that brand, which is usually printed on the box and leaflet inside, and can also be found on that brand's website.

In a word, that's what we'd do to try and find this information for you, since we wouldn't know it otherwise, so it's something you can do yourself.
