hey does anybody know what mlu ( i think it is) a sensitive test picks up a positive from?

i bought some cheapies at the weekend, accunews i think they are called. read the instructions and i think it says they pick up a positive at 25mlu.

im testing early as i just cant help myself (i know i know im the first person to tell people to wait till af) getting bfns surprise surprise. do i still have a chance? af due monday.

25 is not actually that sensitive, the one step internet cheapys are 10! So yes, there's still a chance.
BUT - I would highly recommend waiting until af due date as I've seen a couple of people on here get positives due to the sensitivity but then negatives as the pg doesn't stick.

Good luck, Xx

sleepyme what a bad influence you are grin they may be worth an investment if i cant hold off until monday.

dont even know if i have any symptoms im tired but im anaemic so could be that. felt sick last night but could be any reason for that. last af i started spotting today so will kp an eye on that.

I did one of 10miu and one of 25 today. To be honest, the 25er is not that much weaker, they are both of course really weak lines obviously at 10 dpo.

jassS Thu 05-Feb-15 11:38:43

gingerbreadmam Thu 05-Feb-15 11:55:14

i seem to have got a very very very feint bfp this afternoon. not convinced it is a bfp tbh but enough to get my hopes up.
