    I dont think it really matters as they all use the same principle. I like first response because you just pee on the stick, some you have to pee in a cup and use a dipstick which is just double handling

    first response early result ones. they are the most accurate, and most reliable. U can use them the earliest as well, from like 8dpo. (5 days before your period is due) .

    Confirm early tests also say this, but they are renouned for false positives and shadow lines. so stay away from those lol

    I agree with the others, FRER. I've heard ICs are the most sensitive, but I got a shadow on one at 11 dpo and an obvious BFP on a FRER at 12 dpo.

    I have always got lines on ICs well before FEREs. But once I get a darkish line on ICs I'll go FERE or just go straight to CB digi.

    I alway always used and liked the First Response, but have recently bought some from Oracle Fertility after recommendations from ladies on here. I bought the OPK's and pregnancy tests, they were a lot cheaper and I could buy a lot more. Now I can test more often!

    I use IC's, either Oracle or Fertility2friend. But the most reliable and sensitive are FRER.

    I use first response. Found the clear blue digitals temperamental.

    Digitals tend to not be very sensitive around 50 whereas FRER is 10-25. So they are great to get that 'pregnant' but they don't work until the day your period is due.

    I've never had any problem with the digis. I got a positive before my period was due. I guess they are different for everyone.
