    Default What pregnancy tests did you find gave best results?

    I have bought some El cheapos off eBay but am wondering when the time comes and I can't hold POAS any longer, what brand or type of pregnancy test would you recommend. Iv read discussions where some people use tests with pink lines or blue lines as one shows better. Is first response better than clear blue etc.

    FRER (First Response Early Response..not the dipsticks, the white one's) are the best Luv You could buy a ClearBlue digital but they're exxy especially if you want to test more than once. Go get a 3 pack of FRER.

    to you!!! Good Luck!!!

    I know most people like frer on here but when I got my bfp with ds I actually had better results on a fr dip test and a clear blue plus. I compared them with the same pee and the line was more obvious on those tests than a frer. I'd probably use fr dip test in future.

    Clearblue digi's are great but save them for when you get a bfp on another test first.

    Most people seem to like the first response ones but I had no issues with an early BFP on pregnosis brand (not the dipstick one), which is a lot cheaper!

    Pregnosis are allright too, but when you're dealing with an IVF/ART BFP, our dates are so precise that you need a test that will pick up the most minute of HCG and FRER are the most sensitive for that

    Score! I was at a local chemist the other day browsing and thought there was a mistake with the price on the clear blue digital tests. The ones that tell you the weeks. The single test was over $16 but the double pack was just over $15 on eBay and everywhere else they're $22-23. They said it was a ticketing error that can't be fixed in store so they have to sell them for that price. Should have bought more to out on eBay.
