Pregnancy test variations

Hi, I have gone for an IUI on 19 sep, and have been taking pro 9 200 mg twice a day vaginally since 20th sep, I have also been given HCG injection on 20th, 23rd & 26th sep. I have taken home pregnancy test on 28th sep, initially it was negative, but after few minutes a faded but quite visible line appeared. Again on 1st October, I took the test, after 10 mins or so there was a very faint line and afterwards it disappeared. What does this means? Please help.

You need to follow the instruction given with your pregnancy test kit very carefully. If you are reading the test after the instructed time it will give a false reading. I would ask your clinic to run a blood test to confirm pregnancy.
