Im a bit confused. I took a test two days ago and I got a second faint line that was there for a good three minutes and only slightly fainter then the control line then it faded to nothing right before my eyes. Can anyone explain this? Ive never had a second line before not even faint, so I don't know whether to be excited and nervous or slightly relieved and disappointed. any help is appreciated. also i dont have insurance so i cant go to a doctor.

Was it a frer. They are known for that. When the urine passes through to the control line n the test line I think it just shadows to show u where the line would be if it were a true bfp. Not saying yours not true but I would test again in a few days. Gl

It's very possible it is just an evap line (the line where the antibody strip is that would turn pink if you're pregnant.) I'd wait a couple of days and test again. In a huge majorty of cases a true positive line will not fade. Of course, there are always bad tests and funny situations that come up every now and then!
