11 dpo bfp, dollar store vs frer

Postby Durrae » Sun Feb 28, 2016 6:36 pm

In case anyone would like to compare dollar store test to frers...

Yesterday, at 10dpo, I had a stark white negative on the dollar tree test. Nothing to even squint at.

This morning I had a faint bfp on these two dollar store test.


So I of course went and got a frer, rapid results, not the curved handle. And this is what it looked like.

So obviously the frer are way more sensitive, even though the dollar store test day 25miu. Hopefully this helps someone!

Oh and my digital was negative today, but I'll give it a day or two before I take another one.

Love the comparison, thanks for posting! I've always wondered how sensitive the FRER rapid results was so this is great to see. CONGRATS!!!

The frer's seem to have gotten such a bad rap. But they worked for me. I used the frer with curved handle at about 9dpo and got my squinter. Unbeknownst to me I went and bought more frer but I got the rapid result one. Technically those should be used after missed period. But I was testing 6 days before missed period. And I got a faint line on that one too! I did do dollar store ones the day before my missed period and it was no doubt positive also. I think everyone and every test is different obviously. I seem to have had strong positives since the beginning. :)

I kind of have a similar situation except for I don't have a regular cycle so tracking ovulation and such is not something I tried to do. I only took a test to hopefully validate my symptoms weather to expect AF or otherwise. Mine was dollar store as well. I stopped the depo 10 months ago now and still no AF but symptoms not related to pms. I have a Dr appointment on the 15th, just hoping for advice I guess.
