    I've gone and got myself stressed this morning. So after my faint positive on a FRER yesterday, I later tried on a Cassnovum early result test, which have terrible reviews, but it was my last one of those so just used it anyway and got a faint positive on that too. This morning though, I used one my blue HCG strips that I got from Amazon, thought I could see a super super faint something, but looked more like an evap line, and after the 10 min window it's just the indents I can see. Are the blue strips just not very sensitive? Got myself all worked up thinking I got false positives or evap lines yesterday. :(

    Congrats, @soffphie! So happy for you :D

    @Jetina I’d trust the FRER over any blue dye test. Maybe get another one for tomorrow?

    I’d try another frer, they’re much more sensitive usually x

    @PinkFlamingo - you are definitely not out if AF isn’t due until Friday and if you was only getting brown spotting over the weekend it would take a few days to show on a test so don’t feel let down yet. Your not out until that witch arrives. Lots of dust to you :dust:

    @Jetina - I wouldn’t trust a blue dye test ever. Get yourself another FRER. They are the most sensitive on the market xx

    Thanks all, the internet ones were pink dye, but they're those little strips that you can get loads of for a few £, similar to the ovulation strips. The faint line was on a FRER yesterday but I have no more, so I'll have to see if anywhere local sells them. I know the faint line yesterday is a good sign, but these internet cheapies really do throw you don't they!

    Don't think I will be testing this month. My hormones haven't settled from MMC and although body geared up for ovulation don't think it did :( . Will wait for AF then start testing opks again and then have a testing date. Good luck to everyone else xx <3

    They are hateful. I got some from online and they showed 3 positive tests then a load of negatives. You have a good line on the frer so that is good!! My frer was negative. Good luck!! X

    Hi @Jetina i just wanted to drop a comment saying that i would only use frer or clearblue weeks indicator (but with that second one hold off a bit).. frer is the most sensitive on the market. i would also wait 2 days inbetween testing and i know thats hard but it is honestly for the best.

    Thanks for the advice ladies. I couldn't get FRER locally, but I got some Clear Blue early detection tests, and well, the line is clear as day. I know blue dye tests are notorious for evaps, but this came up within the 3 minutes and is a definite blue. Even hubby can see this one, some tears of joy and hugging were had!

    I'm 11 dpo, but we worked out that I have a slightly shorter luteal phase, as I have a 28 day cycle and AF was due today.
