Accuracy

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.

Readability

By 12 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, 1.8% were reported as evaporation lines. This mean around 1 in every 56 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 test caused me so much worry, including paying privately for quantitative hcg test to monitor levels. The deep set test makes it difficult to read, the window steams up. Really awful. FRER bright bright line and these are so pale.

Eeeh. The results from these tests made me panic a bit, as the line was very faint even on 12dpo. Compared to other tests where I had a blazing BFP from 10dpo, these were real squinters. Stopped using them now and only using FRERs to check on progression. Disappointing!
