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 13 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, 2.1% were reported as evaporation lines. This mean around 1 in every 48 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.

Awesome test for only .88¢. Tested at 8dpo and received a vvvfl at the 14 minute mark. Took a test at 10dpo and the line came up within 3 minutes and a very clear line. Great test!

I love these tests. If u are 9dpo and don't use fmu they take 20 to 25 mins to develop I have taken frer after it came up in that time frame of 25 mins and it was positive as well so these do take longer to develop especially if u r early..

Unfortunately I get a shadow line 8/10 times with this test. It’s gotten my hopes up too many times. I wouldn’t use for early testing. Very misleading. 2 start because blue dye is 1 star.. even worse!
