    I like the digital ones cos there's no mistaking the result when it's spelt out in words!! They're quite expensive though. I think first response are good.

    Supposedly FRER (First Response Early ones) are the best but I know a few women (including myself) who have recently had dodgy ones. I have used Pregnosis and Assurance Plus which gave me a very early positive, then did 3 FRER which were negative, so I bought a CrystalBlue Digital and it was also positive

    Hi Abby

    I generally buy tests from ebay for around 20c each. The last pack I bought was 50 tests for $11 delivered. Now, most women probably don't need 50 tests but I'm a pee-aholic. If I'm suspicious I'm pregnant but get negatives on the cheap tests I'll buy a First Response test from the shops. They are probably all the same quality though, really. I found out I was pregnant with my daughter on an internet cheapie.

    First response are definitely the best as I had a miscarriage a few months ago and the line was feint and that was on the day my period was due and then got a blood test and my levels were too low. Then bought some of the ebay cheapies both ovulation & pregnancy and have found the ovulation ones to be good and the pregnancy ones to be very unreliable they say they are 10miu which is ridiculous as I got a strong positive this month on First response & Clear Blue and the faintest line if any on the ebay ones, I have done heaps of tests with the ebay cheapies and yes they got darker but still with 150hcg the two lines were still no where near the same. I would definately advise against them.
