    I posted a few weeks ago about some positive tests I had from Lloyds pharmacy . Clear positives. I then had lots of negatives I between another few positives. I ended up having a blood test and the results came back negative. Just wanted to share so people stay away from these tests. Nothing worse than false hope !

    That is awful!!!

    Will avoid them. I have doubts about ic too. It's better one FRER a month and at least the result is accurate.

    Luckily I don't have addiction to testing. I personally don't like it. X

    Just bumping this up I’ve seen a few posts about Lloyd’s pharmacy tests which are complete shit, I know some people believe false positives don’t exist but in this case they did for me. I’ve had 3 babies and 5 miscarriages. If you get a positive test on one brand you will find at least one other brand that will show a positive. After doing these Lloyd’s tests I did a FRER, clear blue, clear blue digital, ics and Asda own and big fat negative.
    I wrote numerous emails of complaint and never heard a thing �� when I had my blood test results which came back negative my hcg was of that of a non pregnant woman so it wasn’t a chemical pregnancy it was false positives x

    Totally agree, I've seen a couple of people getting faint positives on Lloyds and not FRERS. Thought they're probably false positives but didn't want to say it in case I was wrong. If it's not showing on a FRER, don't trust it.

    That’s awful! I’ve had some straight up false positives on Wondfo tests in the past too. They do exist, and they’re not ok!

    This is terrible, how can something that has to look for ONE chemical be so inaccurate! Those lines are far too dark to be evap lines. So sorry they got your hopes up. *hugs*
