Does anyone know much about the pregnancy test sticks side to it? It's a difficult thing to google and I'm not getting much in the way of an answerhmm

So, how sensitive are they?! Can't find anything anywhere that tells me other than you can test 3 days early.

Also, I took one this morning not with fmu at 10dpo. waited the 5 minutes, said not pregnant. Which is fine. Take it out the monitor and I can see a faint second line. So now what I also want to know is do these tests work in the same way the digi ones do where there's always a second line? The funny thing is it was the faintest of faint lines. Yet when I've taken a digi apart in the past (blush) the second line has been quite clear despite it being bfn!

Thanks!

I got a positive on it at 9dpo not using fmu - was more sensitive than the frer

Second line sounds like a good sign though - negative test is usually just one line (although they say you can't read the sticks without the machine, you totally can)

Thanks @NimbleKnitter and wow 9dpo! I'm really hoping it's a very faint line! But I also know what CB reputation is like with evaps! Obviously waited the 5 minutes until I took it out and looked at it so it's probably just that knowing my luck!

Maybe. But I've never had an evap on the tests.

I'll fake a picture of my positive tonight, so you can see where the line should be

Take! Not fake!

Here's a pic of a positive stick

I've only had 'NOT PREGNANT' with mine but when i've taken the test out of the machine there's only ever been 1 line, not even a hint of a 2nd so i'd say that sounds promising Fia

Just to add i haven't been pregnant so the 'NOT PREGNANT' is genuine

I have had a faint second line on the CBFM stick and definitely not been pregnant , sorry op, I don't think it means much. I also don't think they are very sensitive though!

Thanks all! I have done 3 of them now and each one has got darker/clearer but still only very light. Don't have anymore tests either but I'm pretty certain I'll be out as have been spotting. But it's good to know for next month, I won't take much notice of the line just incase smile
