Hi, I'm finally taking a test tomorrow I'm using clear blue. Know when you can sometimes get faulty tests, would you know they were flatly? Like would the test not work properly?

Also I just finished my period, it was 3days of medium bleeding then for the 4 days it was just brown discharge sometimes very little. Then this morning I had a really light pink blood when I wiped, is that normal?

For answers to questions about a specific test brand, your best bet is to call the customer service number on the package. All tests are different and the company that made the test is the expert on how that particular test works.

For general pregnancy testing information, take a look at this article:

Peeing on a Stick: All About Pregnancy Tests

The rate of menstrual flow, and even what the blood and tissue looks like, can vary from cycle to cycle. There isn't one rate of flow, or one way the blood looks, that is more normal or healthy than any other.

On a typical pregnancy test though, would you know of if it hadn't worked properly?

Basically I read instructions it says the blue line must appear In the control window to show the tests as worked? So providing that the line appears I can be sure the test has worked right?

Thank you [Smile]

If the instructions say that line means the test is working properly and it showed up, then yes, that sounds like it worked correctly.
