Accuracy

For pregnant women, this brand starts to give positive results for more than 80% by 11 days past ovulation. This means that at least 4 out of 5 pregnant women will get a positive result on 11 dpo or later.

Readability

By 15 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, 5.2% were reported as evaporation lines. This mean around 1 in every 19 test results was an evaporation line. This is considered high 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.

Took at 16dpo and only showed half the positive. I still take that as a positive but not satisfied enough. I may have saturated it too much?

Had a two pack and both seemed showed a super thin line in certain lights and not all that long after sample taken. Wouldn't buy these ones again. Other brands more reliable worth the $ or probably others at comparitive price that are better.
