Cheapo Ebay HPTs


Hi Everyone

Bit of a strange one. I ordered 50opks and 100 hpt's from Ebay for about 12, I figured if they didn't work it wasn't too much to waste.

They arrived today. For the hell of it (not sue AF for another 5 days) I thought I would try one to see how they worked as you have to pee into a container and dip, instead of pee on a stick. The test has come out positive. A faint positive, but a positive non the less. I did 5 tests and they have all come out positive.

What are people's experiences of the cheap Ebay tests, are they reliable? It says 10mlU in printed writing on the back of the pack the test comes in. This seems very sensitive compared to more expensive brands.

Unsure whether I should rush out and spend 15 on a digital if it's not going to work.

I didn't get any false positives on cheap ebay tests. The cycle I got pregnant I got negatives until 3 days past implantation. And I'm definitely pregnant so the subsequent positives weren't false.

I think with 5 of them it's unlikely that they're all false...a digi might not work for a few more days but it seems likely that you are pregnant!!

I have been feeling as sick as a dog for 2 days now. We only got married 3 weeks ago so would be wonderful to have ourselves a wee honeymoon baby I might test in the morning and see if the line is darker. If it is I'll buy myself a first response to use on Monday.
