Can you post pictures of your "cut" pregnancy test? Did you literally take a knife and CUT it or did u pull a test apart? Whenever you open a FRER test they are bound to get evaps that look like a positive test....

Also, what kind of CB test did you take? Did you take the digital or the blue-dye one? If it's the digi, then you might have gotten a negative because they are not as sensitive and you may need to wait a few days.

Definitely worth it to test again on another FRER or Answer brand test... and post pics so we can obsess! :D

I've read a lot of reviews lately saying not to cut them in half because it gives false positives. :( Good Luck! Keep testing, and post pics for us obsessers! :)

Don`t cut FRER in half!!!
It showed such strong pink lines on both cut parts (evening and morning). I was sure I was pregnant.
Did 3 more tests next day (2 of them were FRER and 1 blue lines test) - all negative, not even evaps :(

I would never believe, cannot explain why did it show positive (it wasn`t right away, but in about 7-10 min)
