I've read a lot of bad reviews for these-lots of false negatives and false positives. How many of you trust this brand of home pregnancy tests to be accurate? Have you ever had a false neg. or positive from this brand? Which brand do you trust to give you an accurate answer???
I have been using the off the shelf tests! I have a feeling that the tests are lieing to me, I feel like I am prego but I guess I will have to just go to the doc and find out! I used a clear test and I peed on the stick, it didnt do anything it was a faulty one. I dont trust those store tests
Yea, I bought them because I thought they were suppose to be pretty accurate and also because it came with 5 tests instead of 2 like Early Response. Lol, I never thought trying to figure out if your preggo or not could be so difficult...
i always use clear blue regular and they have always been negative(lots of scares). I am now prego and i have done 2 clear blue regular test and one clear blue digital test, all 3 resulting in a possitive.
Thanks for responding...it's always good to hear different opinions. Congratulations by the way! How far along were you when you found out? I've had a scare or two myself, so now if and when I test it turns out negative, I like to take it that I'm not pregnant. I mean, if it ever comes to a point where my period is more than a week late(which has never happen), then and only then will I know for sure something is definitely up! I think right now, I'm just going through something else that seems to be giving off pregnancy like symptoms.
Lol, well I'm actually not. I'm definitely a worry wort. I had a scare this past summer and we totally thought I was. Mind you at that time, that's when my mom told me to get a blood test...that's when I got treated like a was a lunatic. ;( So recently( once again I'm worrying) I decided to just test and clear my mind. Then I read reviews on these test and I was curious.
Really though, we want to wait a few years before we have kids so we can enjoy our time together now.
Sometimes the tests that claim they can provide early detection provide plenty of false negatives b/c the body is not producing much hcg(human chorionic gonadotropin) yet b/c it's so early on. The test detects the presence of hcg. A common reason for a false positive is reading the test later than the instructions say to. Hope that helps.
Yes, thank you. That's why I bought this brand because it had 5 tests, I figured I could test a couple of times to make sure and still have a couple left over for a rainy day.
I also wanted to apologize for posting this topic in two different forums. I wasn't sure which one to put it in and figured I'd delete the other once I got a response from someone, but turns out I had gotten responses on both at the same time and could no longer delete it.
