Oh really, clear blue?!

Postby BeeCee33 » Thu Feb 23, 2017 2:02 pm

For anyone who is interested in brand comparisons:
These tests were all taken this morning at 14dpo with the same urine. AF was due 2 days ago. I got my first faint positives on Monday at 11dpo. All of my tests, standard and digital, think I'm pregnant except for the one claiming to be "most accurate" lol.

How annoying! What a waste of a digi when it should have shown a positive. I used clear blue digital at 12dpo and got 1-2 weeks pregnant and my frer and wondfo lines looked like yours do. Boo clearblue!

Seriously? Those things must vary so much in sensitivity. I got a digi BFP once with hcg at 8. I have no idea how it managed to pick that up, but your line is clearly positive.

Wow, I've never heard of them picking it up that early! This is the first time I've ever used them and I only bought them because they were on sale. I'm pretty sure the next one will read positive, but I probably won't use it for a couple of days. I was just really surprised!

I kind of view digis as a waste whenever you use them, as most people already have positives on regular tests before that! Maybe the weeks estimator is more sensitive? This was just a yes or no test. I don't know!

Mine was a weeks estimator. I've never tried the other kind and I feel the same, it's kind of a novelty only since I'd never test with one if I wasn't already sure. I suppose if you don't know how to read a test it might be helpful, like for some guys lol. My first BFP my DH wouldn't believe me until the line was super dark.

Exactly! I did the digi with weeks estimator for my husband because he's clueless when it comes to test lines being lighter and darker.

The weeks estimator is the most sensitive digital test I believe it's 10 or something where as the one you took had a sensitivity of 50

I decided to bust it open before tossing it, and now I'm even more surprised. That's a decent line!

CB digis always have two lines if you crack them open. And I think their sensitivity is something ridiculous like 50 mIU.

Congrats though! I love the FRER line and digi!
