C” stands for “control.” The “C” line on a pregnancy test is there to check whether or not the pregnancy test itself is working. If you see a “C” line with a “T” line, it means the test is positive, and you are pregnant. If you see a “C” line and no “T” line, it means the test is negative and that you are not pregnant
If the test result is negative, no pregnancy hormone has been detected and you are probably not pregnant. You may repeat the test after one week. If the test is still negative, and the period still hasn’t started, a doctor should be consulted.
This should not happen if you follow the instructions correctly. If you are uncertain about the result, repeat the test with a fresh kit.
