I have googled but can only find US info

When I used them before I could never find anything on the packets that told me if they were 10/25 or 50 mIU

Hi Preg as a rule most high street brands are 25-30 hoever digital ones tend to be 50.

Hoever there are reports that some (FR for example) are sensitive at 7/8...but i wouldn't bank on that.

The medical world requires HCG levels of 30+ in order to confirm a pregnancy and as such most easily available pg test are sensitive to 25/30 to fit in witht this guideline.

Hope that helps!!

If it helps the tesco own brand and the clear blue (not digital) are both 25. I tested on the day my period was due and got a strong BFP's on both, so they are more then sensitive enough if you can wait till you are due.

Hi preg - have you tried this site before?

yes thanks, saw that site, all seems to be US tests though

That explains why I couldn't find the one I used on it blush
