I took a clear blue how many weeks digital and its said 1-2 weeks. I then ran to the corner shop and bought two cheapies which I think are the clear blue wrong?

@Mmmmmhhhhh did you use the same urine sample?

*@Mmmmmhhhhh* did you use the same urine sample?

@Stabal no, about 30 mins later and 2 hours later

Your 30 min and prob 2 hour later urine probably wouldn’t be strong enough levels of Hcg, you’re best to test with FMU. I’ve never known anyone to have a false negative digital though!

I wouldn’t worry too much about the cheapies looking negative. I got a positive on a digital and a cheapie i did a few hours later was barely visible. If you have any cheapies left I’d wait a couple days and try again.

Fingers crossed for you 🤞🏼

@Nam095 I ordered another clear blue digital to take tomorrow morning

Good luck! Let us know how you get on 🥰

It's much, much, much rarer to have false positives than false negatives - so in this situation I would be more inclined to trust the positive (though I too would like it confirmed by at least 30 different brands of test just to be sure ha ha).

How confusing did you! False positives Are very rare...false negatives are very common. Fingers crossed for you!!!

I can see lines on the two cheapies.

The cheapies probably just aren't as sensitive. FRER would be a good shout?

@Ellovera2 I am going to go into superdrug and get their sensitive one, I did read on amazon reviews a few other people have got false positives from clear blue digital

When people get a 'false positive' it's much more likely to be a chemical pregnancy than a false positive unfortunately.
My FRER was blazing and I wasn't getting anything on a cheapie until a few days after my missed period!
I've heard the super drug cheapies are good, too.
Best of luck.

I would trust the digital tbh. Your urine was probably too dilute the next time. Give it a day. Also don't open the dip tests, those will dry differently to regular cheapies and it affects the result.

@Ellovera2 @Nam095 @LindaEllen @Stabal I did another test same brand using this mornings wee and got a negative. I think I got a false positive on clear blue

@Mmmmmhhhhh I think the digital weeks is more sensitive than the normal digital but I could be wrong.. There really is a very very low chance of a false positive on a digital so it might be the case of a chemical unfortunately 😔 the only way to know is to test again in a few days 🤞
