    Just wondering how well they work, if you used them and got a bfp, how many days before af is due does it work?

    I'm just questioning how well do the tests work, I haven't used them. I've been reading that they aren't sensitive and won't work until AF is due, and i've heard that some have had bfp's with them early, just wanted to get other peoples experiences.

    one of the first tests i took was from the dollar tree and it showed a stronger positive than the clearblue ones.. it was similar to the first response ones- fyi i tested before i missed my period i just had a feeling...
    it's the top test in the pic

    Do you remember how many days before..I am so anxious to test now, but the other tests can be quite expensive. I'm trying to be patient!!

    Uhmm...
    I would say probably within 4or5 days ish before my missed period,
    I remember i got a negative and tested positive 2 days later..

    I say go for it stock up on the dollar tree ones I've always gotten very clear accurate results from em i don't see why other tests can be so expensive!!!

    Goodluck!!!!
    I hope you get the result your lookin for!!

    I used that and got a positive just a few days after incantation. They are generally very sensitive as my beats were less than 20 when I started testing with them.

    I took one of them today at 8 DPO and got what I think is the start of a BFP - very faint positive. I am going to test again tomorrow with FMU.

    With my last 2 kids, I used them and they gave me BFP a week before AF was due. They are usually pretty sensitive. BUT, for me, the 2nd line came up after the time limit.

    This cycle, I got a beaming BFP on one, and was super excited, but it gave me false hope, as I'm starting to bleed today. BUT, other than that, I really do like them for a cheaper option.

    I'm currently using the dollar store tests as FRERs and other drug store brands are REALLY expensive here in Canada (like triple the price of the States...not even kidding!) So I do have 2 FRER tests, but since they are like $10 a piece I am saving those for when I see a faint BFP on the cheap dollar store test.

    The brand I'm using is U-Check, which I've read is similar to Answer brand.

    I've had a couple nasty evaps, but I'm trying to ignore them.

    Luckily I was in the US recently and picked up 2 CB Digital tests SUPER cheap (well compared to Canada!) and I'm praying I get to use them this cycle :)
