Pregnosis...... Can I rely on these results? Has anyone had a real bfp on these?

I am 9/10 dpo.
Yesterday I had 3 positive clear blue early detection tests. The line appeared at one minute and was blue but faint. On all 3 tests... Of course we all know blue dye can be unreliable so I didn't get too excited.

This morning I was at the chemist (friendlies) and they had only pregnosis! They had a pack of 5 for 9.99 so I just bought them.

The first one has a squinter if that... But my urine was clear at the time so I was not surprised.

The rest all have lines. No squinting, no tweaking. Darker than the first one.

Has anyone got a photo of a real bfp from these? I've read so many horror stories of false positives.

Not Pregnosis, but I got a BFP at 10 dpo using a First Response, if you can get your hands on one of those. All the best!

I used the pregnosis tests. Got a BFP for my DS2 when I was 9-10dpo.

Have not read of false positives with pregnosis, either. You’ve had 7 positive tests now, from two brands. I think it’s safe to say you’re pregnant.

I found I never got any result either positive or negative for prognosis. Stupid things.

ETA - sorry that wasnt helpful. OP Id say if you got that many positives then congrats!

Thank you.
I didn't intend on testing so much. After getting the first positive on a clear blue yesterday, I was so shocked to see that line. So I retested with the same urine, then tested again in the afternoon.

Those lines were definitely there and my husband easily saw them too. But they did fade overnight.

I will try a Fr tomorrow and hopefully have a definite answer, although I agree after that many tests it's looking likely that I am.
The pregnosis just get so many bad reviews for false positives.

I used pregnosis for a while and never had a false positive! I think after all those tests, and using 2 brands that you are pregnant. Congratulations!!!!

My IVF clinic uses prognosis. So pretty accurate I would say.

Thanks everyone. FRER has spoken....positive!!

I must say I am impressed that the clear blue early detection picked it up so clearly at 8/9dpo. Before any other test. (I had done an frer yesterday also and it was bfn.)

Just hoping this is a sticky baby as I had a pretty traumatic miscarriage 11 months ago.

Thanks again

Pregnosis where my preferred brand when I was TTC, picked it up before the other brands did and was always accurate for me.
