    Default Taking apart digital preg test

    hello, well as my other thread states im not sure im pregnant! i have taken 2 FRER and both have a very very faint pink lines that can only be seen in good light so i bought a clearblje digital and conception date test, it came up not pregnant. Anyway i took it apart yes yes i know i shouldnt but i wanted to lol. and there was 3 lines 2 on one strip and a very faint on the other ( way darker then the frer)


    what do you guys think? i have googled and have mostly found stories about 2 lines not 3????

    Maybe it was a dud test? Try FR again. Good luck.

    The digi tests aren't as sensitive as the FR tests, I did the same thing when I was early pg, all I wanted to see was those words PREGNANT written on the screen lol, it took about a week later to come up. If you have a faint line on the FR then I'd say congrats your preggers

    The FRER sound really promising! And even if it is faint now I am sure it will get stronger over the next few days

    I looked into those digitals as I had seen a few questions asked about a similar thing and basically found that they will almost always show 3 lines, even if someone isn't pregnant (which is why they tell us not to open them, but of course we can't help ourselves )

    Please don't think this means you aren't pregnant though - the digital tests definitely aren't as sensitive and I bet if you wait another day or two you will be getting nice positives on them too

    Good luck!

    I'd ignore anything except the readout in the digital tests after reading this:
    PHP Code:

    However if you got a faint positive on a first response, then it's a positive!

    i would say, buy a "forelife" test. u get 3 tests n it costs just under 10 bucks from woolies. it measures 10 miu, so u can test early. use first morning pee. FR tests measure 25 miu, so a lower miu is preferred if ur not sure, incase ur only JUST pregnant. good luck
