Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
A faint positive response on first response at 8dpo cannot be considered as a positive test. A digital test is more sensitive. It s best to wait for at least 4-5 days more and repeat the test to get a proper result.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Just curious as why they all showed up within 2 min on all first response tests that came from 2 different stores... And I got another one this evening.. I uploaded my first image.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
I have seen the image. The test line is very faint and cannot be considered as a positive.
The result comes within 3-4 minutes and such a faint line is not suggestive of a positive test.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Regards.
