    Default Best place to get POAS from?

    I want to get my hands on a few of the cheaper POAS so I can do some testing during the wait.

    Where is the best place online to buy them from?

    The first response ones at the chemist get a bit expensive if you are using them every day!

    You can buy really cheap ones on ebay. I think I paid something like $3 for 20 tests. However, they're nowhere near as sensitive as a FRER. I got the faintest faintest squintiest bfp on an internet cheapie 2 days before af was due. DH couldn't see it. My FRER came up dark straight away and my clearblue digital have me 1-2.

    So testing early with the internet cheapies could just lead to early and unnecessary disappointment.

    Pregnancyshop.com.au or ebay. I've bought from both. The pregnancy shop ones are a little bit more expensive, but still way cheaper than buying the name brand ones from the shops. I've never had a BFP after 18+months so I can't necessarily say to their effectiveness, but they've certainly saved me a fortune on buying First Response.

    Chèmist warehouse often have a special on FRER where you can get three packs for $10. I used to stock up and buy three boxes every time they had that sale.
