Could I be pregnant


My period is now a week late and I feel bloated. I have done 2 home pregnancy tests which the one was invalid (a dis-chem test) that I did this morning and the other one was a trutest (done it this afternoon) which also gave no result (blue line was supposed to change pink for negative result or display 2 pink lines for positive). All the lines disappeared and never came back to give a result. Why is this and does this mean that I'm not pregnant?

Kind regards,

The commonest cause for a test being invalid is that it was not done correctly. Check the instructions.

Thank you very much for your advice. I appreciate it. I went for blood tests and was positive. We are very happy!!

Hi Charmaine,

It is possible that you may be pregnant but both tests spoilt (not due to any fault of yours btw). Best bet is to get a couple more and do it with your first wee of the morning.

I would get two and do them both at the same time :) If its negative, wait a couple of days and try again.

Best wishes
