For pregnant women, this brand starts to give positive results for more than 80% by 12 days past ovulation. This means that at least 4 out of 5 pregnant women will get a positive result on 12 dpo or later.


By 14 days past ovulation this brand gives a 'standard' test result. Which means the test result is easily distinguished as a positive result (usually nearly as dark or as dark as the control line)

Evaporation lines

Of all tests recorded using this brand, 2.8% were reported as evaporation lines. This mean around 1 in every 36 test results was an evaporation line. This is considered medium risk.

Only pregnancy test results reported by pregnant women are included. Therefore any negative results are false negatives.

A false negative result is when a pregnancy test indicates that you are not pregnant but you actually are. False negatives usually occur because there is not enough hCG in your system to be picked up by the pregnancy test. This can be caused by the test being taken too early, test sensitivity, diluted urine or failure to follow test instructions. To avoid inaccurate results you should try to wait as long as possible before testing.

This was the darkest of 3 tests taken at 10dpo and I've never had it give me a false positive when used correctly!

I could see the blue negative dye line and control line right out of the package before the test was even done. Did not even see a line for if been positive. I not even see a faint positive. I am over 20 days dpo and 9 days late when I took test

This test turned positive before any other test including First Reaponse.
