    Default Internet HCG tests.. am I the only one...

    Who gets a really strong instant result from them? I have been using way too many (but only one left now so have to curb the addiction) and the "pregnant line" comes up really dark within seconds and stays darker and thicker than the control line and I am hoping this means good high levels of HCG and a sticky bub...anyone else had the super results from the cheap eBay tests?

    Not from cheapies, but FR tests I did around 7 weeks were so dark it pulled most of the colour from the control line. Could be the same?

    that might be what's happening they are pretty sensitive tests I think 10ui/ml or something so if the HCG is going as it should I would be well above that and maybe the poor things can't cope...

    Yeah, Just has to do with the dyes usually. eBay cheapies are the "seconds" so some batches may have had too much or too little dye.

    could also be an indicator of hight HCG.
