Took a test this morning and a pink line came up within the time limit. It was with very concentrated urine thanks to my mild hangover of rosè last night blush

I did another a FRER work this afternoon after many cups of tea and water and it's a stark BFN.

I wonder if the Superdrug one was an evap.

Any experience or opinions?

That's a positive smile

Is there 2 extra lines?

Orlandointhewilderness Sat 25-Mar-17 14:53:11

Positive. I'd wait a day or two and do a FRER but looks promising to me!

BaxterStockboy Sat 25-Mar-17 14:54:05

Aren't evap lines normally grey? That line has a pink colour to it so I would say it's a positive.

Oh my God.

I'm positive that's a positive. Evap lines aren't pink, they're grey.

Sorry, posted too soon. Meant to say that's why it's difficult to tell with a blue lined one and why people say buy a pink one.

Congratulations !!
So nice to see so many ladies getting their bfps!

After a short google, it's seems that pink evaps on Superdrug tests do indeed happen.
Perhaps the negative FRER was correct.

I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow now.

I hate waiting.

It def looks positive but check just to be sure xxx

SillySausage34 Sat 25-Mar-17 17:34:20

Uh-oh, think AF might be coming. Just popped to the loo and it isn't looking good for the above to be a true positive.

This happened to me years ago with my youngest. It seems that no matter what test I make very clear false positives. I've had to with IC's, CB, FRER and now Superdrug!

I thought I might be pregnant recently and found v faint lines on Superdrug tests. It wasn't showing on other tests and eventually my period came.

Hope you get the outcome you want. Soon if not now.

SillySausage34 Sat 25-Mar-17 19:14:56

Thanks Blerg were they like mine?

I'm on the Prosecco now and resigning myself to the fact that it is indeed an evap.
Especially my extensive experience with them. <bitter>

SillySausage34 Sun 26-Mar-17 07:19:04

Update - it was an evap. Very negative FRER this morning.

Blerg Sun 26-Mar-17 07:24:41

Sorry to hear that flowers yes, mine were like that but appeared outside the test period. But that happened with DS so I wasn't sure what to think.

CatsCantFlyFast Sun 26-Mar-17 07:43:42

My Superdrug tests have lines like that two full days before the frer showed a line (all tests done at the same time using the same wee)

Misssmoo Sun 26-Mar-17 07:55:00

That's shocking I would complain to super drug seems alot of people are getting false positives xx

MistyMinge Sun 26-Mar-17 07:59:25

I found superdrug tests to be more sensitive than other tests. I got early positives with both my DC, and the tests looked just like yours does. I wouldn't write it off yet.

SillySausage34 Sun 26-Mar-17 08:03:38

My Superdrug tests have lines like that two full days before the frer showed a line (all tests done at the same time using the same wee)

Oh wow that's interesting. I will wait and test if AF doesnt show up then.

Watch this space!

mistletoeprickles Sun 26-Mar-17 08:43:40

Superdrug tests are a bastard.
I got evap on several tests over a few days. I wasn't pregnant. When I complained there response read as "oh well"
Stick with frer

SillySausage34 Sun 26-Mar-17 08:56:21

From here and Google its one of two things. The Superdrug tests show up earlier than a FRER and the Superdrug was correct.

Or it's an evil evap (and my, it's evil. It's so clear in RL).

So I will get a test on Monday morning if AF hasn't come.

I will update.

SillySausage34 Sun 26-Mar-17 11:28:20

Well. A glutton for punishment, I couldn't sit on my hands until tomorrow because I had to drop a card to a friends house which meant walking passed Superdrug

Obviously I bought a Superdrug test.


BaxterStockboy Sun 26-Mar-17 11:40:17

Sorry to hear that. Evaps are bloody evil!

purplek1tty Mon 27-Mar-17 08:37:11

I've had exactly the same with Superdrug tests. Sorry to hear it's happening to others. I won't touch them now.
