Positive IC Negative FRER?

Postby Amber85 » Fri Feb 17, 2017 5:56 pm

AF was due yesterday. I've been having 27 day cycles and believe I O'd around CD 17 this cycle based on O tests. So I'm 11 DPO. I have been taking IC tests the past few days and they were definitely negative. Today my first one seems to be positive (the blue) so I took an older (expires later this year) one I have leftover, the pink one, and it has an even lighter line but still a line versus what I didn't see the past few days. I ran out and for a Frer combo pack with a line test and a digital, used the same pee and both negative. Anyone had this happen?

Hmm. I'm not surprised the digital showed negative, as they are just reading a line on a regular test strip, so it has to be very clearly there. If you bust the test open, you may very well find a line on the test strip inside.

That's quite odd about the regular frer, though! Can you post a picture of that one? They are the ones more likely to show a line when there shouldn't be one, not the other way around!

These two do look positive to me, especially the lower one!

Thanks for the reply I didn't even think to open the digital. There is a second line but its a bit farther away than normal tests is that how it's supposed to look? is that positive?

I'm not sure exactly where it's supposed to be on those, but I'd consider it positive! There's definitely a line. That other frer must be faulty... That's all I can figure!

Digital are not as sensitive and can take longer to show BFP. Most will also have two lines since they also measure lh as well.

With how dark your cheapies are I have no idea why your FRER is bfn. Is it FRER or rapid result? I've heard rapid result aren't as sensitive.

I had a line on an FRER with hcg at 8.5 so they should pick it up.

The first frer was from a Test & Confirm kit, so not rapid. Today is a curved handle one. Cheapy still positive FRER still negative. Very frustrating.

Is the blue test an ultra sensitive 10 miu? It looks just like the ones I had. I believe you have a bfp. Is your urine diluted at all when you take the frer? That can really affect those tests. I hope your frer turns positive soon. Those are nice looking lines on the blue tests.

Yah I have no idea. Never tried an FRER kit or curved handle, but I've seen a lot of issues with the curved ones.

Even if your cheapies are 10 miu you should be getting lines on FRER.

Here was my FRER with hcg at 8 a couple hours later. It wasn't super dark and I'm not sure how the digi even picked it up, but it did. I went for a beta shortly after.

I think tests can vary in sensitivity even in the same brand between batches but that's just weird. You obviously have a BFP there.

I see a shadow on the frer...and that blue handled test must be more sensitive...the curved frer suck...try a clear blue early one...

Ty for the replies. All the tests are from FMU. The blue handled I ordered from Amazon, they are a brand called ChoiceMMed and the paperwork says they are 25 sensitivity. With how they are turning out maybe they are just more sensitive, dunno. I also took a CB Digital this morning and it said negative but I was expecting that. Think I'm going to buy some different brand ones today to try tomorrow. I also have some Clinical Guard ones incoming from Amazon which seemed to have great reviews.

Try clear blue plus not the digital. They are pretty sensitive too.

Thank you for the suggestion. I went and bought a CB and held pee as long as I could lol. It's totally positive as far as I can tell, it's light but the line is undeniable, I'm not very familiar with blue dyes though..
