Faulty FR tests?


Gah so after getting my hopes up after doing the First Response one just found out about the dud tests and mine was a dud as it had 2 faint pink lines, however I bought two and thought may aswell do the other one since they are faulty anyway, rather than wait til morning or a few days and even tho this has same batch and date etc the 2nd one has just one thin faint line on it? Could it be an actual positive or are the 2 lines just not showing up cos I didn't use morning wee like I did this morn?

Totally annoyed and disappointed now by the dud as been happy all day I am only 10 or 11 days post ovulation so its too early to really do any other tests yet but I dont have any patience especially after the above 2nd test Going to try and wait until Friday before I do another one, as i won't be buy first response again! Gutted!

Also has anybody from the previous thread who had a dud tests, found out if they are pregnant or is everybody negative?

thanks x

You would have to assume the second one is faulty as well, dont forget to phone them and let them know, the more that do the better! Test with a different brand in the morning, fingers crossed for that bfp hun!xxx

Yep! Its appalling!!! False negatives you can sorta forgive cos you are gutted and then you get happy and excited, but false positives its like you are happy and excited and then you are gutted which is actually worse as almost feels like you have lost it! Gah! Yeah I wanna know NOW..hate waiting!!! I think its too early to test tomorrow as its only 11 or 12 days since ovulation so I am gonna try and hold out til friday and do a different test...I am actually training to be a midwife so its just making it really hard, as I deal with pregnant women and babies etc. everyday and until I know for sure whether I am or not, it is invading my head, as yeah I can't forget about it and switch off, cos what I switch on to is everybody elses pregnancy! Nightmare! I just want to sleep for a week!

Good Luck everybody tryin to get pregnant

I had the misfortune to buy these dodgy tests too. I didnt get the three lines but i did get a positive on sun 24th. There were two lines, both pink and i was so excited, especially as i chose to test on my daughters 14th b'day! Couldnt wait to tell her she was going to be a big sister again. But something told me to wait and test again the next day before taking it as definite...The test on the mon was BFN, again on the tues another BFN and lastly i tested with a superdrug early test on sat and another BFN. AF arrived yesterday.

I'm furious how i waited six months to see a BFP and was so overjoyed, only for it to be a cruel mistake by a company that we all trust and pay out a hell of alot of money for tests every month!
I was going to call for a replacement but to be honest i am scared of another false positive, I couldnt go through it again so i will stick with the superdrug ones.

I dont want to put a downer on things i just dont trust FRER anymore from this whole experience. Good luck when you retest and i hope your BFP is a real and truthful one and that you have a happy lil bean snuggling in already.xxx

well girls this has happened to me too.i bought a twin pack of FRER and done the first with smu and straight away there was 2 lines so i decided to do another and the same thing happened 2 pink lines,as ive been trying to concieve for nearly 6 years i was over the moon i actualy thought i was pregnant.i decided that i wanted to see it in words so i went and bought a clearblue digi and it came back NOT PREGNANT my intial thought was that the digis werent very sensitive enough so i went out and bought another twin pack of FRER and the same thing happened with both tests(positive)

it wasent until i came across a post on here where someone mentioned the dodgy tests,i sent FRER an email but havent recieve a reply yet.my AF came yesterday so i wasent pregnant at all.i can honestly say that i will never buy FRER again.

i spent 40 on tests this month bcoz of FRER and all this has caused me a great deal of stress.
girls be aware that FRER arent as reliable as we thought it was.

Please help!!


Hi all,

Hoping you can help - when you say dodgy batch of FRER, what is dodgy about them & how do you know??

I have just used one & the control line came up straight away - dark pink and clear as I would expect, then around 2 mins later a very fient BFP came up.
My AF is not due until Sun, BUT I have been feeling sick all day & my tummy is really bloated (exactly the same as very early in my last pregnancy) so I thought I would do a test - couldn't wait!!.
Got BFP (DH could see it too), but then remembered reading something about a dodgy batch so googled it & came straight to this thread!!

Please help!

Wishing everyone lots of luck

Not sure if this is sorted now. But they were giving 3 lines, the control and 2 test lines. Fingers crossed that you have your bfp, I know lots on here are back to using them again
