    I can see faint lines there without squinting.

    And I had 3 more positives. All from different boxes from different shops. I am on the depo injection and blood test was negative
    I can see a faint line on both of them.

    There were second lines on them, faint but didn't need to squint to see them irl. I showed my gp and even he said they were positives

    Yep. And they were false positives. All 5 of them.

    Just in case anyone is interested, I've used 6 FRER's in the last 2 months and all have been BFN (and I'm not pregnant yet). So all of mine have been accurate, no evaps or anything before or after 10 mins (I'd kept them all for at least a few days or more).

    You must have good batches then- so many of us have been getting false positives with them.

    Yeah, checked one batch number and it was different from one someone was having trouble with. Ordered some IC's this month anyway so probably don't need to use a FRER or something unless I get a positive IC.

    I've personally never had issues with FRER giving false positives.

    Maybe five mins- like once the dye had cleared. So I worry they are evaps. But ill go home soon and test with a frer. Because I'm obsessed like that

    Look, I am not trying to imply anyone is lying about seeing a second line, but the way in which a FRER works is very specific. It has antibodies to bhCG on the strip on the test line, and then a second layer of coloured antibodies to bhCG which attaches to the bhCG if present on the test line. You cannot get a false positive on a FRER or other reputable brand because of the immunology of how they work. That's all I am saying.
    You can get false positives with ICs as they are generally made overseas with poor quality control, which can pick up LH as well as bhCG.
    If you are convinced you had 5 positives with a FRER, did they get darker significantly with each day? Sounds more like a chemical pregnancy than a false positive.
    I wish you all the luck in the world, but I think you deserve to know how specific FRERs and Pregnosis tests are. Antibodies to a substance are like a lock and key...they only fit each other.
    Hope that helps.
    If you are still not convinced, wait until 14-16DPO and do a ClearBlue Digital.
