I have some IC which are 10mlU - are FRER even more sensitive than this?

I think they are 12.5 but can pick up a pregnancy really early. The IC will be positive at the same time as a FRER but the frer will more than likely show a darker line

Yes. IC claim to be 10mIu but in reality a FRER will be positive way before any IC. (Read the amazon reviews for One Step etc if you want others to confirm this)

I think FRER are by far the best tests. 5 pregnancies and they have always been + way before any other test I've taken. I think Clear Blue are rubbish.

IC are good but not as sensitive as FRER even the ones marked 10mui.

I tested everyday with IC 10mui and didn't get anything until a day after a positive with a FRER.

However, they're much cheaper and if you have a POAS addiction like I did, they will do your fix! I did notice a very very slight pink line when shining a torch through the IC strip the day before I tested positive with a FRER, but it was invisible to the naked eye unless I shone a torch behind it. (If you do this and see a line, just be cautious, don't take it as a positive, but you can always hope and then test the next morning with a FRER)

I know superdrug own brand are 10mui and pink lines so better than the blue ones for evap lines. Not too dear either - they're my favorites smile x
