Conflicting results?

Good morning, I am 5 days late for my period and took 3 clear blue tests. 1 digital says 'Not pregnant' but 2 others show extremely faint line at 3 minutes. Which should i trust? Pamphlet says faint lines may be positive but digital says no?

Hi Jackie.  Conflicting results can be common when testing in very early pregnancy when levels of the pregnancy hormone are very low. The usual reasons for this are using tests of different sensitivity or using different urine samples.  If your test looked like the 'pregnant' result in the leaflet and the result appeared within 10 minutes of taking the test then you have a 'pregnant' result and you should see your Doctor. Misleading results can be caused by certain fertility medication or recent pregnancy/miscarriage.
