Advice on Pregnancy tests - best ones to use?


Ok so I am 15dpo and been using the most expensive digital tests so far thinking they are the best ones to use. However picking up on other threads it seems the cheaper ones may be better?

Can anyone give any advise on this? I am wanting to test again tomorrow so would like to try a different one if there are better ones

Thanks girls x

I have been getting BFN with the digital so wondered if they perhaps wernt as sensative as others?

Might just be clutching at straws but I want to stay as positive as I can x

To save money I bought some from poundland, they do a pack of two for one pound. I know that I am the obsessive type who will test loads every month so I dont want to spend a fortune!

Thanks for your thoughts and if anyone else has anything please speak up. Would live to hear that digital us not to sensative :-) but only if that's the truth x

From what i gather digital ones are 25mu and not that sensitive, whereas FRER and superdrug ones are the most sensitive at 10mu. I bought some superdrug ones on friday and they are 10mu i think, unfortunately i started spotting later that same day so ive not used them.

I think it depends on the person and your HcG levels, as with my first BFP the digi didn't show until at 14DPO, whereas last time I got a positive on a digi one at 12DPO.

Try an FRER tomorrow and let us know!
