    Default What brand of HPT do you trust?

    I'm using ICs at the moment, but I have some Crystal Clear tests in my bathroom for when I want to confirm after an IC says bfp (). I've been checking it out though and it sounds like Crystal Clear are not very reliable!

    I plan to get a Clear Blue Digital for confirmation now after reading those reports, but I want to know... If you've used Crystal Clear before has it been ok?
    And if not, what are your preferred brands? I usually use one with a pink cap on it I think although I don't know what brand. Perhaps First Response? Anyway ladies, let me know what's tried and trusted. I don't want to make the mistake of buying a dodgy brand again .

    i got a bfp with first response 14dpo and had done some Clear blue tests that were negative so i think FR is the way to go. I used clear blue digital for confirmation

    First response here too.

    I really don't trust that brand you have. Once I bought one when I still had my mirena in just for laughs I pee'd on it and got a positive. I was really worried! Turned out I wasn't PG, was just an evaporation line. Ever since, steered away from that brand.
