Asda test vs frer ?

What is the difference between these two tests?

Is Frer more sensitive?

Bfn yesterday at day 29, cycles have been between 28 and 35 days

I have a Frer arriving in an hour and I'm so tempted to use it but it's not even fmu is it so would be wasting my time right?

First response website says if I have 35 day cycles I can test from tomorrow so I should just wait it out right?

But I do have a two pack coming ....

Yesterday's bfn was a asda test BTW and fmu

Wait a few days, you'll just be wasting your money to use it today. Even 4 days before AF it's only about 60% effective or something. If you get a bfn tomorrow it could just still be too early so you'll need to buy more tests. I would wait until AF is actually due so that you can trust the result.

According to this list asda are 25mlmg where FRER are 10mmg.

I swear by FRER - I got positives at 12 days and 10 DPO in my pregnancies, do you know when you ovulated?

Have you had any symptoms that make you think you might be?

Confused4321 Sun 07-Feb-16 12:57:39

Ty oyster only thing is I can't say when it's due because of silly cycles

Last was 28 days
Before that 35
Two before that 28

So 28 does make more sense

But now I'm clearly just trying to talk myself into it aren't I

No clue on ovulation

Had sore boob's for over a week now which are worse in past 2-3 days

Felt sick earlier in the week but nothing now

Weeing lots but I do this anyway

I've also not had a massive spot breakout on my chin as I usually do each month since stopping depo

Sore boobs is always a good one. Mine were sore right up into my armpits - if I wasn't pregnant I was going to the Dr!

I guess potentially you are already late? Fuck it, I'd do one test and if it's negative, give yourself another 2 days and test again.

Confused4321 Sun 07-Feb-16 13:10:33

Even at this time of the day?

I've not had a wee for a couple of hours I could do with one TBH but if I hold it is it the same as fmu almost lol

Is Frer really 10mmg?!

JustAnotherYellowBelly Sun 07-Feb-16 13:14:27

You have 2...
I would do one today but I'm impatient!!
Or maybe try a Superdrug one as they're cheaper?

Confused4321 Sun 07-Feb-16 13:31:11

Oh dear

They sent an asda digital as a substitute

I accepted

Attempted to use

In my need to pee I didn't take the cap off , peed on it and now the test is useless as I have no more pee

Confused4321 Sun 07-Feb-16 13:43:18


I managed to get a tiny bit of pee on the right place

The digital screen has timed out but if I remove the test strip there may be a faint line

Confused4321 Sun 07-Feb-16 13:59:21

There is a faint line, clearer if I tip it certain ways, can't get a photo of it though

Should I wait a few hours and try the other

Confused4321 Sun 07-Feb-16 14:15:36

Just seen online that two lines on this means nothing!

Confused4321 Sun 07-Feb-16 18:05:26

Took the second

Not pregnant

The lines on a digital mean absolutely nothing, there's often 2 lines on a negative test.

The asda digitals are also less sensitive than asda normal or first response.

Best to try again in a day or 2.
