    Okay, I just wanted to ask if anyone knows how realible the boots own brand hpt are? Ive just brought two of them as adviced by a friend instead of superdrug ones. I havent taken one yet i want advice first. Do the boots ones give bad evaps etc?

    Thank you

    **Edit, i've just taken the test and two purple lines. But its over to one side is this normal? Ill attach a picture in a bit

    I had the same with an ads test the other day the control line was not in the usual place but I'm sure this is just down to factory placement error.

    Look forward to seeing the pics :D

    The test and control boxes on boots tests are so tiny I wouldn't be surprised if test lines were off centre... Looking forward to a pic :)

    Do these look normal? AF was ment to arive 3 days ago, these were taken about 5 minutes after i tested. Lines appeared within the time limit,tbh it arived soon as i peed on it. Tell me what you think.. .

    That is a very strong positive, take it apart and you will see two perfect lines for sure. Congrats!

    I'm sure it's BFP ,especially as both lines are sliding towards one end- it just looks like th test strip inside has moved, or wasn't placed right. I'm sure the test is accurate, I can't think of any fault that would simultaneously move the strips and provide a false positive soo...pretty sure you're preg and CONGRATS!!!!

    That looks like a nice strong positive, congratulations!! I agree with the others, the gap between the two lines looks spot on to be a pos. Think the whole strip has just shifted, don't worry. Do another in the morning to confirm!

    This was taken 3 days after AF was due. couldn't believe how dark the lines got right way. I took the test apart and it looked perfectly normal.


    You'll all be happy to know i took another and the lines were perfectly straight and nice and dark even though I done it at 9pm. I'll post another picture in the morning :) xx


    And for anyone thinking about the boots test they seem reliable enough and good for money really xx
