Hi ladies just wondering which do you prefer and think is more accurate?
I did a test last night IC came in with a positive, but did a 1st Response this morning and it was negative.....
I only had 1 ic left....

Internet cheapie vs. Chemist test

This is off the top of my head, researching reputable sources seems like too much effort at the moment, BUT
I'm pretty sure that the cost of tests has nothing to do with how accurate they are. Some are more sensitive than others... hence some will pick up a pregnancy earlier (lower HCG levels). False positives, as a rule, don't happen. So most likely, the ic was more sensitive than the chemist one, so it has picked up a pregnancy where the other hasn't.

I've done a million while doing Ivf and I find the ICs not worth it, only ever used FRER.

Frers are definitely more reliable. I got my pos on an ic at 11dpo but confirmed it the next day with a frer. Give it a few days then test again with a frer. Good luck x

I got my BFP at about 14dpo on an IC and confirmed with a FRER. The FRER was much darker and showed straight away whereas the IC took a couple of minutes but the line was def colored and obvious.
I've never had a false positive on either.
I think that if you test alot ICs are the way to go as they are far less expensive, but I couldn't trust them 100%.
Fingers crossed for you!

I got a line on an ic that I had to squint to see. Bought an frer that arvo and the line was really dark so yep for me frer is much more reliable.
