    Hi ladies, well i was bored this afty and thought id pop to Boots to stock up on 2 for 1 frers, anyway got home and thought...hmmmm...shall i do one?? Im only 6dpo so kinda knew it would be BFN but am such a poas addict! LOL!

    Anyway around the 10 min mark a pretty little indent/evap line appeared which has got more noticable over the past half hour and it looks like this:

    I know its an evap i can tell but i really trusted these First Response tests and never had evaps with them before so am gutted that they have let me down.......so beware ladies of the dreaded FRER evaps!!!!!!

    I have gotten 4 evaps In a row in the past 3 days with frer's. All of them showed up after a hour or so but they are pink lines and they are faintly there. But withen the 10 minute limit they were negative as negative could be! Whats going on with these tests? Did I really get 4 evap lines?

    Are you sure that's not just the anti-body strip showing up? xx

    Looks like the anti-body to me. I know a lot of girls who have gotten those lines then a few days later gotten their BFP, could just be a coincidence but those are good are detecting super low levels.

    Well I started testing with these frer's about 3 days ago.. The lines have all been the same looking really, my period is due tomorrow. Wouldn't the lines be getting darker not looking like the same faint evap lines? (they look light light pink but I put water on the test over the line and it looks grey when its wet. does this mean anything?)

    your levels double every 2-3 days and FRER are known for detecting levels that are really low, some say they can detect the same day as implantation. I say it could be the start of your BFP!

    Yehh I have to say, I think that is the antibody strip bit..I assume it is ever so slightly indented for the dye to settle on in some way..? I do see what your'e talking about and it's hard wen you're ttc cos you obviously do want it to be something, but if that was mine I would not be convinced by it or think it was positive or even an evap...poor tests don't think they're designed to be poked around with them like we do (and I do!!) Gl as you're so early and hope it turns into a really nice bfp :)

Tbh we not TTC at min after my m/c last month, but we did have a mishap (dh forgot to pull out) and that same day i got a smiley on my digi n pos opk! Whoooppps! So would be great if got BFP but no biggy if not this month! Thanks for your posts girls, your comments are much appreciated. xxx:hugs:

    hmmm, are you sure it is not the start of your BFP??? :shrug: Some of the FRERS can detect pregnancy up to 6 days before your missed period and I see on your ticker that your cycle is short at 25 days and you are on CD 20 right now...so you know it could be the start of something, because i see the line and it looks pink in the pic...good luck hun..I hope this is the start of your BFP. :dust: :dust::dust: :dust:

    And also, do you have pics of the last test. I would love to take a look...:winkwink:

    I Have tested with these for the last 4 days and got the antibody strip on all of them and an evap line later. I'm 14 dpo and still negative on all ic. Frer are way more frustrating than I thought they would be. I always thought they were reliable, maybe not :(
