Accuracy of Clear Blue digital

Hi, I'm just wondering if any one knows how accurate the CB digital tests are? Mine says pregnant with a 3+ on. Have they ever given anyone a false positive? This was the only test I could get at the pharmacy and I'm so worried that it's wrong due to hearing their regular tests are bad for evaporation lines. I also think I could be panicking due to having 4 miscarriages and an ectopic in the past.

That's an amazing result - these are notorious for making people panic as they are not v sensitive and report negatives/lower results than expected.

Your hCG must be nice and high. Congratulations!

If in doubt you could always get some cheapie ones?

Thank you so much. Honestly it did make me panic, but more in a way of It can't be right. I'm hoping it's definitely high tomorrow. I spoke to the GP after this who booked me in for a blood test to check me levels. Very nervous 😩. But will try a cheapie one once I can tomorrow.

Ild say they are fairly accurate, especially if it's 3+! How many weeks do you think you are?

Thank you. I have my blood test today at my GP to check my levels which I'm very nervous about given past history with pregnancy. We think I am around 5 weeks now.

Thank you 😊. All went well today, I ended up having a scan as my veins weren't giving up my blood. I was so so nervous as they were doing my scan they were very quiet and looking around alot to make sure the pregnancy was in the right place. After what seemed like forever they turned the screen! There was a sack ,the yoke etc. I was so happy. They are going to have me back in two weeks to scan again as we should be able to see more then. Still in shock this is all real after 10 years and so many losses!
