    Anyone ever had a false positive with FRER? I did one this morning and have a faint pink line it took about 4 mins to come up though, so I am not convinced. Just wondered if anyone had similar experience. Will try and post a picture later.

    hi, yes i had that last month and then took a digi the next day and it was negative and then AF arrived literally about half an hour after...what a waste of a digi!!! lol

    i know it's hard but best thing is to leave for a few days (2-3) then test again to know for sure.

    I had 2! They both disappeared within 20 minutes of testing though. I don't trust FRER as I've read loads about false positives with them.

    AF due tuesday. Have a digi and a clearblue non easy but will probably wait till tues or wed to test as AF always starts in the evening for me. I have no major symptoms though other than what I thought was implantation pink cm at 7dpo.

    A little while ago I got a line on a frer, very very faint & mainly visible at the edges, had to take it apart to get a good look.
    Bought another pack & some clearblue ones, got all BFN's no lines at all.

    I'm going to stick to the IC's from now on, I spend tooooo much in boots! :)

    If the line is visible without taking the test apart, then it's very possibly an early postive, fingers crossed!

    If the line is still there, I think that sounds positive. These tests are supposed be something like 99% accurate so, unless it disappeared, I think it's a good sign. Try testing again tomorrow or on Tuesday and see what happens.

    It is visible and no squinting but quite light. Definitely pink though and too a few minutes to show. Will try and post a pic later.

    Sounds like it might be the beginnings of a BFP then, how exciting!
    I've just twigged your ticker says 15dpo!!! Very promising indeed! :D

    Why do you think its a false positive?
