    Default Shonky pregnancy tests??

    Hi, I took 3 FRER pregnancy tests this afternoon and they all came back with faint positive lines within 3-5ish minutes so I went out and bought one of those Clear blue Digitals and that came back 'Not Pregnant'.

    Could the 3 FRER tests be from a shonky batch?

    I am 8/9 DPO if that helps.

    Thank you in advance if you could offer some insight x

    I think the FRER are more sensitive than the digitals. So you could very well be pregnant still.

    It could just be too early. Try a frer again in a few days & if pregnant it will be darker & then the digital might also be positive.

    The FRER's are more sensitive so it's likely you are pregnant but the digi won't show it for a couple more days

    Is there a chance that it could all be ghost lines or something? The lines look pale pink and faint but not too faint that u have to squint.

    I'd trust the frers. Digital tests are not as sensitive.

    I have never had a frer give a false positive. And everyone is right, the digital tests need more hcg to show a positive congrats
