Equate Early Result Pregnancy Test Horizontal Line

Why do you have a horizontal line on your Equate Early Result Pregnancy Test?

What does your Equate Early Result Pregnancy Test horizontal line mean? If you position your test horizontally while reading your result, you shouldn’t see a horizontal line.

Are you reading your result with the absorbent tip pointed either towards or away from you? If so, please point the tip to your left.

Now, let’s talk more about what the results for an Equate Early Result test look like.

Early Result Pregnancy Test Results

The control line

Every valid result will have a line at the “Control” section of your test stick’s result window.

If the tip of your test points left, the “Control” line should appear in the farthest right section of the result window.

You can also recognize the “Control” window, because of its narrow, oblong shape.

If you have completed your pregnancy test and see nothing in the “Control” section of your testing device, you do not have a valid result.

Negative result

If you properly complete your Equate Early Result Pregnancy Test, a line in the “Control” section of your test will appear. Also, you will see no line in the “Result” window.

The “Result” window on your test stick is round.

Positive result

You have a positive result if you see a line in the result window of your your Equate Early Result Pregnancy Test if you properly performed your test, kept your test level, and read your result within 10 minutes.

You can review your test result by comparing it to your pregnancy test’s instructions. Also, see the below image.

Why do I have an Equate Early Result Pregnancy Test Horizontal Line?

As you can see, very little ambiguity exists when you read your result from an Equate Early Result Pregnancy Test.

If you see a horizontal line, could it be that you’re looking at your pregnancy test from the wrong perspective? Your test stick should lie on a flat surface with the absorbent tip pointed to the left.

On the right, you will see your “Result” window (a circle) and your “Control” window (oblong).

If you see a horizontal line and a vertical line in your result window, chances are that you’ve used the Equate +/- One Step Pregnancy Test. That test displays a “Plus” sign if you’re pregnant.

Finally, you have an outside chance of seeing a horizontal evap line on your result window. Carefully clean your result window with a cotton swab to see if any urine residue has splashed and dried on it.

Equate Early Result Pregnancy Test instructions explain your test result this way:

For your result to be “Pregnant,” the line in the round Result Window must run in the same direction as the line in the oval Control Window and be of a similar width.
