    To be fair a negative frer at 17DPO approx (i don't use OPKs) is enough for me to think I'm probably not pg. So I'd rather wait a couple more days for AF to show than waste money on a test that I will probably mess up anyway. Sorry girls... Bad mood. Never ever been this late. Just want to know what's going on with my stupid body :( xx

    Question - I Just read this, and I used a Boots test and got my BFP, it came up fairly quick and was a pretty strong line. Is this a good sign that there is plenty of hcg knocking about then?

    I used B&M's Clear & Simple on Sunday and saw nothing. Used a tesco one earlier and could have swore I saw something but I am convinced it's just in my mind!

    Definitely a good idea to have an idea of how sensitive they are. I looked on the leaflets & on the box of the tesco ones and it didn't say, so glad I had the heads up from here!

    FRER most sensitive test is 6.3mlu for those unsure you can check the insert within your box to check the sensitivity purchased. Mine say 6.3mlu which is how they generally tend to be the best x
