Hiya, I have a thick very faint blue line going vertical in the center to make a + but have seen so many post on these reading false positives... however CB Digital says not pregnant

I'm due in 4 days... Anyone had the same? Thanks xx

It’s still early, wait a few days and test again, I’d recommend the FRER, I got a very dark line the day my period was due

The digital ones aren't that sensitive and shouldn't really be used before your period is due

I don’t think the Sainsbury’s Own brand ones are great to be honest

Thank you everyone! I'll wait a few more days and try and get hold of a FR test... Can't find them anywhere?! X

Mini panic reading this .. used Sainsbury’s own test and positive at 5 weeks.. do I need to recheck 😖😖😖

I had my first bfp this pregnancy on one then remembered they were unreliable and checked with a boots one, still bfp! But that was 2 days after possible period due (mine are irregular but I knew when I ovulated).

So .. partner brought this clear blue back ( not the digital one but I’ll let him off). First is the Sainsbury’s from a week ago and second today’s clear blue . Do you think need to do any further ones? 🥴

They both look like clear positives to me.

ambs245 Tue 22-Sep-20 20:29:23

Wow congratulations! They both look positive to me! How many days late are you? X

For the OP: Sainsbury's tests were (still are?) notorious for their false positives. I've only ever gotten false positives from them. That said, it's been a few years since I've peed on sticks, so maybe the tests have improved.
I'd make it a point of only testing with First Response, especially if you're testing before you're due. Good luck! flowers

Clearblue digital with weeks indicator is actually almost as sensitive as a first response in the U.K. (sensitivity of hcg of 10) so can be taken several days before missed period so I'd try one of them

Myself and my sister both had 1 faint positive with a Sainsbury's test, even though neither of us were pregnant at the time. And we did the tests months apart.
I know it's supposed to be really uncommon to get a false positive but I really would steer clear of these.

Thanks ladies! So I took a FR today which can detect upto 6 days before missed period and it's negative sad gutted but no period yet.... Will wait until I'm due (on Saturday) to see if it turns up and will test again. Not looking hopeful though. So gutted x
