Hi there everyone i am new here i am wondering if someone can answer my question in the best way possible sorry if it sounds really confussing.

I brought these tests off ebay called fertility2family they are 10ml i have never ever used these before but i thought i would give them a go.

I always use 2 strips at a time in the same cup just for confirmation kinda thing. The first ever strip i used was with first morning urine one strip showed a faint line and 2nd showed no lines. VERY CONFUSSING

The next day the same thing i waited 20 mins did another 2 tests both of them showed negatives...i DID ONE THAT NIGHT got a faint line again.....only on one strip not the other

Today morning urine tested 2 strips again one faint one neg what the???

has anyone had this weird problem i could go ahead and say oh yeah evap lines but it does not make any scence wouldent they all become evap lines and not have some neg and some positive or evaps? etc im due for my period in 3 days

I have used both their ovulation and pregnancy tests with varying results...basically you get what you  pay for ...I would  stick to more reputable brands such as first response to confirm results.

I am another one that just would use the more expensive but more reliable brands like First Response, they have never given me an inaccurate result thus far.

Never had an evap line...however I only  used 2 tests that came with my ovulation tests I got.

Ive used them before and found they gave evap lines alot. Every month i'd end up at the doctors to get confirmation bloods and it was always a neg result. They didnt start showing proper positives when i did fall pregnant till i was past 5 weeks and had already tested positive with a CB digi and got blood results of over 200. I wouldn't waste my money on them again.

I think these are the same brand that I bought off ebay. Are they the ones with the blue 'handle'?

If so, I've had evaps on about 90% of them wacko.gif A few have been completely negative, but most of them have a faint second line, and one even had a dark second line when I definitely wasn't pregnant huh.gif I don't trust them at all, have just put them down to being dodgy tests and I wouldn't trust it even if I had a really dark BFP. I agree with testing with another brand like FR or confirm if you are wanting a definite answer original.gif Good luck.

Oh thank you for your responses i dont want to keep my hopes up i did not think they were that bad or would give evap lines sad.gif looks like i will have to try out the other brand and see what happens. I am glad i found out now

I didn't get any evap lines with them, but they were definately not as sensitive as First Response - I had positives with first response and only negatives with Fertility2family ones for many days.

I used the HPT and OPKs, I only ever got one evap on the HPT. With this pregnancy it showed up positive at 3w5d.

I've been using both their OPKs and HPTs and never had an evap line.  Been using for about 8 months.  Always clear OPK's for me and when I did get a BFP it was faint but there at 11dpo then darker at 12dpo.

Exactly this for me

I used to get faint second lines all the time, get my hopes up and then have them shattered again.  And as you can see by my sig they were never going to be positive!

As PPs have said I'd stick to a more reputable brand.

I bought some of these and have had varying results. I made a topic with a few photos actually in here. I had several BFP's that were quite obvious, only to go to get bloods and have it negative. Although I also got a BFP on a FR so obviously something was going on, but I am still getting random positives and I am pretty sure im not pregnant.

I won't buy them again that's for sure. Too unreliable.

I found their OPKs great but their HPTs a bit dodgy..

Definitely Not happy with their tests!! Positives on other tests and negatives on these.... Ridiculous, I just got the faintest line possible on one before but you have to hold it up to the light grrrrrrr!!!! Going for more blood tests to make sure my hcg is still doubling
