    That's why I was so skeptical about the blue dye test. It is heartbreaking, especially because it just looks so positive! And now the FRER's are negative, I'm even more skeptical about the test. Argh!

    Okay, thanks for that. Well, it's been 2 hours and I've been trying to drink mininmal fluids too. Will try and hold for at least another hour. Fingers crossed xx

    They are particularly bad for false positives for some reason. I've had them in the past. They seem prone to coloured evaporation lines post the specified time frame compared to pink dyes which normally don't have colour if there is a line due to evaporation. Usually white or grey. That's why with blue dye they can give such false hope of a positive.

    And no need to worry about hijacking the post. It's a valid question after all

    They just always seem to leave a stain that looks like a second line. Like, always. You have to use them, see if there is a second line straight away (and it needs to be pretty dark to be trusted) and then throw them away forever.

    Whereas FRER are super sensitive and super trustworthy - in my experience, a visible line is always positive.

    Well, I think it's safe to say the orgininal test was an evaporation line. Just re-tested after an 3 hour hold and nothing. BFN

    I did an FRER and a crystal clear again and the FRER nothing but the crystal clear as a faint line but I'm pretty sure once again, it's an evaporation line.

    Looks like I won't even be touching blue dye tests again. Too much chance of false hope I'm afraid to say!

    I had a line a little bit darker than that on a crystal clear.... it was a false pos. Like you I got my hopes up, got a FRER straight away and stark white neg

    Don't waste your time with the blue dyes. They are complete rubbish. Pay that bit more and stay with the pink dye.

    I'm sorry to hear that. It sucks so much! These tests shouldn't even be on the market if it's happening to so many of us!

    Yeah, I'm done with blue dyes. Going to stick with pink dye tests from here onwards.

    Alright, now I'm confused. Just got a faint pink line with pink dye test. Not an FRER but still. My urine was really concentrated this time round so I don't know what to think. It's faint but pink.

    I've attached a picture but I the image quality isn't great. I had a hard time getting a good photo of it :/

    I can definitely see it! Good luck! Do you have a FRER for first thing in the morning?
