Previously I've seen advice to check the packet or instructions but I never found the answer

Googling I only found lists of US brands

Bumping for you.

Personally I have found clearblue digital give the earliest response.

Not sure if it's up to date enough thought
I got some Sains basic ones yesterday and inside they say they are 25 miu

i thought sainsbury's ones unreliale according to other threads on MN

I've just had 2 dud sainsburys tests (I'm pg, but obsessively testing everyday cos neurotic about mc want to see how dark the line is blush)

!st one didn't work at all and 2nd one just got a line in the pg window not the control window.

I'd recommend clearblue or asda

Sainsburys very unreliable. Lots of reports of false positives - where line appears in test window but line is incomplete in control window. Seem to work better dipped than poas.

Always gone with Asda for price and the fact they work off only 10MIU.

What is MIU please?

EldonAve Mon 12-Jan-09 08:23:03

minx - did you ask for your money back?

squatchette - MiU is the units of pg hormone they measure

minxofmancunia Mon 12-Jan-09 14:28:28

No, I haven't dh says I should take them in and show them!?!

I tested at 12DPO with a Boots test and got such a faint line, I had to dismantle the test and squint at the light but even then it was inconclusive. I don't like tests where a cross has to appear - difficult to read

Broke out a ClearBlue digi that said PG 1 - 2 weeks

I was using Sainsburys ones for reassurance for quite a while and was happy with them, then did a test for a suspected new pregnancy on Xmas Eve and got a false positive, so I'm not using them for early testing any more

Minx - they should have a number in the instructions so you can call and complain
