This will vary from brand to brand, but results can usually be read in 3 to 5 minutes
User :   it was about 5 mins i would say
Doctor :   Assume that even the faintest line in the test window is a positive result, though you may want to retest in a few days to see whether you get a darker line. Especially if you have tested close to your menstruation date, a faint line might just indicate that your levels of hCG are low.
User :   ok thank you
