BTW ladies, I agree with whoever said that many of these are likely chemical. I had a chemical in Feb. This is my test:

Hello Ladies
I am new to this site and I was just reading through all the post on evaps because I think I may have gotten two evaps with a blue dye test. ugh! This is so frustrating because I have all the symptoms and starting testing at 8dpo because I had what I think to be IB on 7dpo. I was not even trying since I had a miscarriage and Jan. However, when I seen IB on 5/2 and a little on 5/4,(7 days earlier than af), I just knew that I was pregnant because it happen with my 5 year old son and with the mc in Jan. Although, IB came the day af was due. Sigh...I want to post the pictures so that you guys can look at them to see what you think. Oh by the way I am 11dpo today and af is due Tues. or Wens.

For the record, these are DIFFERENT tests, in the same cycle, and every one of them showed up WITHIN the time limit. I was not pregnant. Beware of blue dye!

Apologies if this has already been said but as far as I can tell there are 2 types of false positives. There are evaporation lines where what you are seeing is the test strip. The other type of 'false negative' is a chemical pregnancy. This is probably what ladies are getting with the FRER and this is the risk we take when we take a test before our missed periods. Basically this is when you conceive but loose the bean very early on (too early for it to be a mc). This is actually very common. So it is best to wait as long as you can before testing - I am a total hypocrite here though because I can never wait to test!
