    i have went through 6 tests all digital. all but 1 gave and error message. the one that gave a result was a BFN at 8 or 9 dpo..

    so now i am here af due today or tomorrow and can not test because the stores are all closed.

    i should add i but digitals because i have a huge issue with seeing invisible lines. and checking after the 10 minutes .. so digitals stop me from doing that.

    How frustrating - I hope AF doesn't show up and you get to test in a couple of days :)

    Good luck

    You should send back the error ones for a refund! Think 8 or 9 dpo is very early for a digital anyway as they are only 50miu.

    I would call them and ask them what to do for a refund.
    Also you should purchase an early result test the miu is way lower. You can research online for the different miu

    i did send a nasty email to them and got an auto response .. if i do not hear anything next week i will call the provided number

    i have lots of symptoms and am missing the 2 things are is always present with af cramps always the few days before af i have really bad cramps and a back ache and a acne break out.. so i am very hopeful. I may even try and talk dh into driving to a larger city in hopes of finding a open store.. if we do what brand do you ladies suggest other than frer? i have only ever bought those and dollar store tests..

    i did buy some IC's once but they take forever to get here. if i am not pregnant this cycle I will buy more

    Either company will send you replacement tests or a refund.

    they were first response early result gold digitals https://www.firstresponse.com/digital_gold.asp these..

    I got an auto response from the email saying it may be a few days before they get back to me. a refund or replacements would be nice .. i could not believe that many in a row were bad.

    I would research what has the lowest hcg level needed for detection. I used ept for my first pregnancy, but I am not sure what the hcg is. I just used regular frer. I am not sure I am liking them because my second pregnancy it was negative I had to go to the doc to get a positive.

    Sounds like a faulty batch of tests to me - did you keep the boxes - they should have a batch number printed on them.

    I'm sure you are using them correctly (because you're not a bloke and so you read instructions) - but did you doule check what the instructions said about using them?

    I didn't realise FR came out with a digi! Thanks for the warning about them I will make sure I have a spare if I ever buy those!
    Sorry you are still getting BFNs...you are not out until AF shows.

    I got a response from them today, they are sending me a full refund for all the tests. ironically enough after saying i would not buy another FRER product I got my BFP on a Answer brand test when i looked at the website linked in the email the Answer and FRER are put out by the same company

    thanks for suggesting I contact them. 3, 2 packs of test is like 60$ not a lot of money but still.
