Pregnancy symptoms, urine test showed faint red line. Does this indicate pregnancy?

hi - i think i am pregnant - i have all the symptoms - i am 40 and have a 13 year old son. i took the urine test at home , about 8 of them over 2 weeks. the very last one this morning i did and only after a hour a faint red line has appeared. none of the others did that - they all went slightly yellow or stayed clear. does this mean i am pregnant and how soon can i do another test - this afternoon?

Thanks for writing your query to us.

Urine pregnancy test detects the amount of HCG in your urine only after it reaches a certain level. If the levels are too low than the test may come negative or may show a faint line.

First of all you need to know your menstrual cycle length.
If you have 28 days cycle, that means if you get your periods every 28th day than wait till you miss your period & than do a home pregnancy test.
Repeat your test after 2 days till that time your HCG levels would also increase if you are pregnant.

Wish u best luck.
