Talk to me about your experiences with 'pee sticks', in particular FRERS. I have been searching online for answers but can't seem to find any so here's my question.
What level of hcg does your urine contain before it will show up on a FRER? I ask because my maths just doesn't add up with what happens. Allow me to explain 😊
Typically clinics say that your levels should be over 100 by day 16 and that they typically double every 48hrs so let's work off that.
16dpo - 100
14dpo - 50
12dpo - 25
10dpo - 12.5
8dpo - 6.25
Now I know first hand that FRERs show quite a nice line with a level of 6 because I had bloods on the same morning as this misleading beauty.

So if I am now 9dpo (4dp5dt with no type of support or booster) would I be getting a line like that if I was UTD? I don't understand how it all works.
I know people don't generally get lines this early so does that mean that when hcg kicks in its generally already quite high? If it's not then how does it get to 100 by day 16?
I have read about so many people getting false positives and having levels of even under 5 with FRERs lately so surely anyone who is really pregnant should be getting really early reading as their levels builds or does it not work like that?
As you can see I'm driving myself loopy and any wisdom would be appreciated!
