Any Superdrug Early Detection Testers out there?

So I bought a twin pack of these - tested yesterday at 12 dpo and stayed bright white. Test this morning at 13 dpo with FMU (although I was struggling to wee for 10 seconds more line 3 or 4 seconds) and after the regulation 3 mins, nothing to see. A couple of minutes later a faint line appeared and a few mins later (after 10 mins) I checked again and there is a definite line.

Obviously some issues with how I took the test (not enough wee? too long for result?) so this is all just a matter of speculation but wondered if any users of this brand have any thoughts on whether they are bad for evaporation lines or had similar experiences?

It says to discard test results after 5 minutes...I was still busy squinting at 5 minutes as I thought I could see a line developing (turned out I could!)

I can't test again now until Thursday for various reasons so will be in suspense for a few more days but thought I'd fill it with some -obsessive- musings in the meantime smile

I don't have an answer, but my tip is to wee into a receptacle of some description and dip rather than wee onto the stick. Saves either having not enough wee or flooding the stick.

Can you post a photo of the stick?!

I had exactly that - a verrrrry faint line appearing on them after 5 mins plus, maybe 5 days before my period was due. Got a negative on all other tests including FRER until I was about 4 days late.... 28 weeks pregnant now!

fenella congratulations! That's what I amhoping for. Am usually massively pessimistic but something just making me wonder this month....
5 mins to disregard a test (per instructions) sounds so little...wonder if it is a ploy to get you to buy more tests!

Never had a false positive on these. The last time I used one the line didn't come up until after at least 10 minutes, but it was a real positive as I then got positives on FRER over the next few days (sadly lost it v early). Fingers crossed yours is a real line.

biggerboat so sorry it didn't last.flowers You have given me hope though. Thanks for your message

It's only a bfp! Confirmed with cb digi this morning! So moral of the story is....you might need to wait a little longer than the prescribed 5 mins if you are testing early on this brand but they really do work!

Congratulations! I had a sneaky feeling it would be smile
