    I've only had one experience, and that was when I was testing for my son... and it worked perfectly well for me. A little faint pink line came up!

    I had 2 evaps last month, but they looked like a positive.. I won't be using them again.. :-/ Saving my FRER's & digi's for if AF is ever late.

    they arent supposed to be as sensitive as FRER's but I've heard conflicting comments on them, so maybe they are different for different people. Generally, FRER's are supposed to be around 12 miu, I've heard that they can even be more sensitive though.. And IC's are generally 25 miu's..

    How early they can be detected depends on the person and at what rate their levels increase by.
     
  9. I've used them before but I don't care too much for them. I'm gonna go with an Answer test when I test.

    whats an answer test?
     
  12. FRER is First Response Early Result and Answer is the same type of brand but different name and I like it a lot better than FRER.

    I ordered internet cheapie tests that are 10miu/ml sensitivity. I used a few last month bc I thought I was prego. I got some evaps on them but, I did let them sit overnight (bad girl) and then did all I could to make a line out of nothing. LOL. So it was my fault, not the strips.
     
  15. Supposedly 6 days before your expected AF but I wouldn't do that....

    how do i know how sensitve they are it doesnt say on the package..

    i have some internet cheapies here but im not sure if i want to use them as a reliable source...i think when i test the 31st i want a test that dectect a low amount of hcg since i didnt find out with my son til 21dpo i think my body take longer to get that hormone in my urine

    Just out of interest, did you test earlier than 21dpo and get BFN's?

    I've used IC's. I got faint BFP at 12dpo, was BFN at 11dpo with LO. And tested recently and got BFN's without any evaps.

    i cant remeber i might have...it was a long time ago i just remebe gettin my bfp lol
     
  19. Internet cheapies? I think they're about 10ml which I think you can be as early as 7dpo or 8dpo and get a faint positive. *I think*
