    I recommend the Oracle Fertility IC's. I get them off ebay. As mentioned above in the thread you don't even get a hint of a line, noooo squinting and maybe's there!
    I'm waiting for mine to come! I'm really excited

    Default Frer false positives.

    I'm hoping my FRER was false this morning too... Falsely NEGATIVE! Lol

    After reading these posts I was really paranoid about testing, I don't think I could handle the excitement and the let down. *hugs* to everyone that had to go through it xx

    Default Frer false positives.

    I'm the last 3 months I have had 2 chemicals. The first one was confirmed by a blood test (hCG was 4) last month I got a bfp and it was a very strong one too. First one was in the evening, the next one in the afternoon 2 days later and then again the next day with fmu. Af was late last month, but that's not unusual for my cycle length to change so it makes me wonder of it was a chem or a combo of faulty tests and my body being an ****

    These false positives are bullsh1t! Seriously misleading, I'd be crushed to have one of these and then a neg on other tests/AF. If a second line comes up when the test is used in water (!) FRER need to get these off the market until the problem is solved.
    I hope you are all complaining like mad, phone them or email them, they are very expensive tests! Not to mention the emotional expense when you're ttc.

    Default Frer false positives.

    For the past two cycles if ttc, I have gone through 6 frer tests, all with false positives! So that's two different boxes of tests giving faint pink lines.

    I think I'll go for Internet cheapies this time around as I don't want to get my hopes up again!

    Honestly shadow? I think you had a chem. The reason I say that is because you used two different types of test and the second test also had a faint line. When I had a chem in April last year, I had a very VERY faint line. The next day the line was even fainter but still there, and then a few hours later AF showed up. I tested again when AF showed up (as I was obsessed and really hoping that it was just break through bleeding) and there was no line whatsoever.

    AF can and will show up between a few minutes after getting a faint BFP and a couple of days later so the timing of AF arriving doesn't really mean much. If you'd only used FRERs and thought that it was a bad batch I'd say it was possible, but using two different tests just kind of tells me that you were pregnant, even if only briefly.

    Default Re: Frer false positives.

    I agree with eko. I know mine was achem because i also got faint lines on a clear blue and a fr dip.

    This morning i have no frer so used an internet cheapie but of course i have line eyes. I'd be 5wks so would have a strong pos if i was. I swear i an though, currently experiencing morning sickness.

    I agree about oracle hcg's. You don't get line eye with them, no false pos, just a line or stark white.

    Default Frer false positives.

    I've always relied on my oracle ICs. They might have a really faint line there most of the time but it definitely showed up my BFP straight away. They were right every month of 12 months of ttc. I had one chemical in that time. There are some dodgy hpts/ICs out there. It's horrible getting a false positive.
