Crystal Clear - the see through kind
1. Have you experienced evaporation lines? Yes
2. Have you experienced false positives? Yes. Trying to work this out can be very frustrating. Some kind of blue line is visible and you can't decipher whether it's a BFP!
3. If applicable, how early did you get a legitimate + result? It wasn't until approx 12DPO that I felt confident.
4. Rate the test out of 10. 5/10 Don't like them! Too hard to read with heaps of false positives or evaps. Waste of time and money.

Crystal Clear - midstream stick kind
1. Have you experienced evaporation lines? Yes
2. Have you experienced false positives? Yes.
3. If applicable, how early did you get a legitimate + result? N/A
4. Rate the test out of 10. 0/10. Hate these tests as it gave me a false positive very clearly. I was almost convinced I was pregnant until I took another 2 other branded tests. In the end I was NOT pregnant. Will never use these tests again.

First Response
1. Have you experienced evaporation lines? No
2. Have you experienced false positives? No
3. If applicable, how early did you get a legitimate + result? Approx 11DPO very faint.
4. Rate the test out of 10. 9/10 Pretty conclusive at 12DPO. Although the line is quite thin so sometimes can't really work out whether there is a definite line until much later DPO.

Confirm
1. Have you experienced evaporation lines? No
2. Have you experienced false positives? No
3. If applicable, how early did you get a legitimate + result? Approx 12DPO, very faint but there.
4. Rate the test out of 10. 10/10 Much easier to read and a clear BFP. Not a great early testing device but great if you want a definite answer closer to when AF is due.

Fertility Naturopath Internet Cheapies
1. Have you experienced evaporation lines? No
2. Have you experienced false positives? No
3. If applicable, how early did you get a legitimate + result? Approx 11DPO, very very faint.
4. Rate the test out of 10. 8/10 Very cheap on ebay and do the job. Good early indicator however quite faint early on.

Pregnosis
Have you experienced evaporation lines? No
2. Have you experienced false positives? No
3. If applicable, how early did you get a legitimate + result? Approx 13DPO, very very faint.
4. Rate the test out of 10. 5/10. Even when I was 17 DPO it still showed only a very faint result which makes you start to worry that it might be a chemical. Personally don't like them.

First Response
1. Have you experienced evaporation lines? No
2. Have you experienced false positives? No
3. If applicable, how early did you get a legitimate + result? 11dpo (very feint, but definitely there)
4. Rate the test out of 10. 10

Couldn't get a better test than this I reckon - for the price & accuracy, its a fantastic choice, and the best for early testing (ie, before AF is even due).  Definitely my favourite and highly recommended!!!


Discover One-Step


1. Have you experienced evaporation lines? No
2. Have you experienced false positives? No
3. If applicable, how early did you get a legitimate + result? 13 dpo (didn't use it prior to 13dpo) - but the result at 13dpo were 2 very strong lines
4. Rate the test out of 10. 6 (only because of the price - expensive!)

As others have mentioned, this is the same test as the First Response, but it cost me $25 for 2 tests from Priceline Chemist, whereas the 3-pack of First Response tests were $15 from Woolworths - what the???  Same quality from what I can tell, so I too don't understand what the price difference is all about?  Fancier packaging maybe? False sense of better quality maybe?

Lullaby Conceptions (10mlU)

1. Have you experienced evaporation lines? Yes (but I turned out to be pregnant anyway - see below)
2. Have you experienced false positives? No
3. If applicable, how early did you get a legitimate + result? 11dpo (very feint), but definitely turned out to be positive
4. Rate the test out of 10.  8

For the price, these are great cheap, sensitive tests.  However, I found they took ages to become "positive" ie 2nd line would eventually show up, but in the early stages, ie from 9-11dpo especially, the positive line would show up after the 10 min time limit, meaning they should actually be interpreted as negatives.  However, by 12dpo the positive lines were showing up within the first 5 mins, so there were a couple of days of confusion (because I'm impatient & began testing too early  blush.gif ) but it turned out I was in fact pregnant afterall.  So what I first thought were evaporation lines were really feint positives, just showing up after the time limit.  Its worth noting that I did use one of these tests in a non-TTC cycle on 11dpo just to "see" if there were any evap lines - and none whatsoever.  I only got evap lines in the cycle I did turn out to be pregnant, and these lines would appear from 9dpo-11dpo.

Pregnow

1. Have you experienced evaporation lines? No
2. Have you experienced false positives? No
3. If applicable, how early did you get a legitimate + result? 10dpo - again, extremely feint but definitely there within the testing time limits.
4. Rate the test out of 10. 8

Another good, cheap, sensitive test, but I still think I prefer the First Response, maybe because it looks prettier and I got more convincing positives on them than with the Pregnows or others??  Or maybe I just like the First Response the best because they were the first test I got really good, strong BFP's on at such an early stage?

FIST RESPONSE:

1. Evap line - no
2. False BFP - no
3. Earliest result - 14DPO
4. Rating : 10/10

I had been testing wtih the HPT that you get at the Dr's ( took them from work  wwhistle.gif ) and they had given me very, very , very faint BFP's after about 5 minutes.
First Response gave me an instant, very dark line.The Dr one continued to be faint for a few more days.

Am currently in the process of testing - getting faint BFP's 10DPO so will update this in the next few days ....

Have a question, I am on 2 mths in TTC and I have bought OPK and Maybe Baby but I am not getting any signs for ovulation, also have tried the temperature thing but that is all over the place.  The OPK is called "David Ovulation Kit" (bought off the internet), any suggestions as to what brand I should be using? I am a 31 day cycle and currently at day 15 and nothing ?? How good are they? Thanks - Merry Christmas

I usually swear by first repsonse but last cycle I had  faulty tests out of 2  3 pack boxes from different batches.  First I was excited bc a pink line came up in the test region but then disappeared within a minute, next day I got a pink dot in the test region and next I got a bfp (witnessed by my husband and everyone knows they're completely BLIND) which disappeared about 5 mins later.  Very disappointing.



#67 angelblake

Posted 26 January 2010 - 04:51 PM

I must say that FR is going downhill and fast.

I had 2 positive lines and a control line on one tests and the others had a few evaps. I am not pregnant so positive lines was a dud test.

I will give them one more go next cycle though as they are usually very accurate. maybe just bad batches coming out. If not ill be switching to confirm.





#68 strawberry dreams

Posted 14 February 2010 - 06:43 AM

I seem to be pregnant! I've been testing from 9dpo with FR and got slight suggestions of lines that I've ignored bc of my bad FR experience I had written about a couple of posts back. Slowly I've noticed I've had stronger evap lines.  12dpo I looked at the test 8 hrs later and there was a definite evap.  I decided to test again that day and got a faint pink line within a couple of minutes.

What I've noticed though is that the line's been slow to come up (12dpo when with my other chem/pregs  I got lines at 9dpo) and the line is taking ages to darken.  I'm 15dpo now and the line's still not as dark as the control line and is so far the same color as yesterday's test.  

I looked up the site www.canyouseealine.com and they have lots of recent posts of FR tests and mine come up as quite strong compared to theirs.  

I just wonder if the change to FR tests includes the darkness of the test.  Talk about playing with very vulnerable women's emotions! I'm scared to go to the dr bc my last fr at 12dpo was stronger than my current bfp at 15dpo and that ended in a chem preg and the dr's test barely showed a line.  

I'll try and post a pic. IT's the last pic in the series of hpt pics http://www.uptheduff.org/index.php/forums/...thread/388/P30/

You will see my old FR bfp's in the pics before this current series and you can compare to see what I'm talking about.  I'm no longer a fan of FR.  They seem to have become cheap with their dye... either that or my preg is struggling.

#70 strawberry dreams

Posted 14 February 2010 - 06:00 PM

I decided to get a Discover and to test again this afternoon with FR.  The FR test is still not as dark as the control line but a certain bfp.  The FR is not much if at all darker than this morning's test.

The Discover test freaked me out bc it took a while to brighten up and is quite a bit fainter than the FR test.  I didn't expect that! I was planning to go see the Dr tomorrow for a beta hcg now I'm scared.  I've got 1 more Discover and will hopefully be darker tomorrow.

#71 strawberry dreams

Posted 17 February 2010 - 03:19 AM

OKAY, my hcg from 16dpo was 44.1 so low... and prog 59.7

So prob the FR have shown the kinds of results they should have.
