Answer or FRER?

Postby JessM » Sat Apr 30, 2011 5:20 pm

Which is more sensitive? Answer is way cheaper, but FRER claims to be the most sensitive. What do you ladies think?

I'v always trusted the FRER...but I can also say that I'v never tested with an Answer. I'v never seen them at the stores here, I don't think. Idk.

I think if you're going to test early, the best thing to get are internet cheapies and then test with those $$$$ tests if you see something on those or at least wait til you're closer to when AF is due..otherwise (at least for me) I always feel like I peed on a stack of money if AF shows her stupid ugly head at the end of the POAS-a-thon.....

All that being said, it seems like the ladies here prefer answers to frers because of the elusive frer white line that has been popping up on their newer tests..I've gotten excited over that stupid line too a couple of times

:roll:

Lots of luck to you!

I usually don't test until I miss AF, but this month my best friend just got pregnant and that makes me want to have a BFP 10x more this cycle. So I may test Wed (10dpo) and if BFN I'll wait until Sunday, the day the :af: is due.

Before I got pregnant with my son I used Answer brand and never got an evap or anything, and I loved them because they were cheaper and just as good as FRER..

But this cycle I used both FRER and Answer and I got evaps on the Answers even before I peed on them!! I think there's a bad batch or something.

Try the IC..they are sooo cheap and I've heard they are reliable.. (that's why I'm using them!!)

Good Luck, I hope you get your BFP!!!
