Hi

I have ebay preg tests and just did my last one today.I am due for AF tomorrow but unlike every other month I havnt had any spotting for a few days before hand.I am hoping I am preg and I still have a chance.Just wondered if the cheapies didnt work for some people and if they had to buy other tests from the chemist for it to come up as pos?

I used them my last 2 pregnancies and got BFP's before AF was due with both of them. I've found them highly sensitive and accurate. I'd never go back to a chemist/supermarket one worth 20 times the price.

They didn't work for me until later.

After I got a call from the fertility clinic confirming pg I tried again and still no luck.. they didn't work for me until I was 7 weeks pregnant (had already had an early scan by this point)

I just kept testing as i had heaps and wanted to see if it would eventually work Tounge1.gif

I got 3 BFN (1 test a couple of days before AF due)(1 day before due AF due)(1 the day AF due) with my ebay pg test. However, went to chemist & brought pg test & came up BFP clear as day. 3 days after AF due the cheapies worked. However, I had no problems with the ebay ovualation test. Good luck

Mine weren't off eBay, but they were just the cheapie 'David' tests from pregnancytest.com.au (or something like that). My BFP showed up very strongly at 4w4d, but I'm sure it would have shown up earlier. I didn't believe it and went out and bought FRER and clear blue digital as well lol.

FR showed up at 8-9 dpo, but the internet cheapies were negative - I tested for about 5 days after getting a positive with a FR but was still getting -ves on the ICs - I don't know when I would have got a positive with them because they ran out. They were the Fertility2Family brand and for me were no-where near as sensitive as FR.

I got a positivso quite early, so they worked just fine for me. The OPKs on the other hand I couldn't ever get to work!
I just bought 50 tests for $15 posted or something like that.

I used them for #2 and #3 and got BFP's 2 days before AF was due too. But they were very very light so i would try again in the morning OP. Good luck

I think it depends on the brand. I used lullaby conceptions ones & got a Bfp the day before I got one on a first response (LC + FR -).
