If you look through my threads, you'll find an old one about the hook effect, with examples, and the frer is the first test to do it with it's design. The longer you test, the lighter they'll get to where they look almost negative.

I know hormone levels can vary hugely, but doesn't the hook effect only usually start to happen a lot later than 15dpo? I thought it was more like 5/6/7 weeks pregnant it happens?

I agree, I've tested positive on FRER into 6 1/2 weeks. (Then stopped due to puking). I think hook effect is later

Thatís what I would think, too, cupcake. Fortunately, OP (who is DD to me), continued to get great progression until she stopped testing Thursday. Hopefully she doesnít mind me sharing this!

That's good the tests are fine I think!
The hook effect for me didn't take effect until about six weeks I think. I would have to look at my photos to make sure on weeks or my journal, but they gradually became fainter so I started diluting samples then using another test to compare which proved to me it was that ... I wanted to make sure it was too much hormone causing that after so many early losses
