    Default Dud batch of frer?

    Last month I brought a box of frer. I used two of the tests and they both came up with extremely faint second lines but then af showed up. So I assumed it may of been chemical pregnancy. Now this month my boobs have increased in size and feel swollen and sore. So I took a test from the same box as last month and that gave a clearer second line but still faint. That night I went up the shop and brought a new three pack of frer. Did a test this morning with fmu and its a bfn. Not even a chance of a second line. Is it possible that last months box was a dud batch?

    i think the only way to be sure, would be to check their batch number on the box/wrapping.
    I had a chem last month as well, testing with FRER......The first i wasnt sure about, was more of a glow than line, but the second, there was a clear but faint line.. I got AF a few hours later (talk about cruel!) I done one after AF went, and it was BFN, all from same box.

    But i did see a thread here where a lady said she got a dud box, apparently even got her hubby to POAS and it was a clear BFP too..so maybe, it is possible??

    I didn't keep the box so I don't know the batch number. It's very cruel, why can't it be simpler to know if ur pregnant

    I have used these tests reliably with 4 of my pregnancies (had a + at 9dpo & 10dpo with 2 of my children).

    I did a test 1 day late 2 weeks ago... it came up negative.

    I was actually pregnant.
