Internet cheapies HPT

Anyone like these????    Do you have any issues with them?   I bought some since I have the urge to test twice in a day.   I think I'm 9DPO.  What's the earliest any one saw a possible BFP?

i used them when i was preg in January and i was getting faint lines and went and got HCG done and my levels were 29 but ended in m/c and i took another test later when my levels were 20 and i got another line just fainter. i like them and for a POAS addict like me they satisfy that urge to pee on something and not wasting a ton of money. so yes i love them

Hi Yvette,  I bought them and got a faint bfp on 10dpo and confirmed w/frer. They can produce color evap lines too so beware until it gets darker. They have photos of the evaps on twoweekwait.com. They are might convincing. But they do show very early bfps. That's the reason I like them, plus the cost :)

Thanks ladies.  I bought them due to my addiction problem and their cost.  I'm debating whether or not I got faint or evap line.  I saw pics on twoweekwait.com, but they still look a lot alike.  

I guess, I'll wait till tomorrow and check.  I oculdn't tell you right now what day I am in my cycle.  I got off track this month. I think I ovulated early though and that's why I've been checking.

i've had a bunch of evaps with those..........use them, if you have an addiction (like me...) but, don't trust them......just pretty much for fun.!!! lol....
I like CVS ones....they are super sensitive.......don't like FRERS......but that all depends on the likes of everyone.....

Good luck tho!!!!!!! =))

$tree tests are better!  Believe me, I tested the first and the line was very very faint at early dpo and one week later which is today, here it is, dark line as the control color in 30 seconds.  They are just 1.00 dollar a box.  I wouldn't spend the money on the good stuff....not worth!   Good luck.

Well I've used the internet cheapies, BUT I wasn't pregnant then so I can't speak on the reliability on them, BUT I have to agree with another comment stating that $tree are good.  I got my VERY FAINT BFP on 12dpo, but I didn't believe it then, that's how faint it was.  I had to hold it at a certain angle and directly in front of certain lighting, which is why I consider my BFP on 13dpo, BUT the $tree ones seems to be good to me.

Geez...that's what I've been doing...holding the HPT at different angles and in different lighting.   I'm glad no one else can see me doing it.    Then I also compare to the one I took earlier in the morning.  

I having a feeling just evap line.   I may pick up a different kind on the way home.   I am pesimisstic, however, as to getting a BFP.

Will you get an evap line on every HPT (internet cheapie - same brand) with every test ?

I haven't had good luck with the dollar tree tests.  I never got a positive when I was pregnant.  As it eventually turned out it was a chemical pregnancy.  But I did get positive with CVS digital test, FRER, and Clearblue Easy (Am I freak or what?)

Well as it turns out I just came back from Walgreens with a 3-pack of FRER.  So let's see what happens, I'm just waiting to have to use the ladies room.  I've taken 3 internet cheapies today and am getting the same result...now I need to prove to myself that internet cheapies are evap lines.

I don't think I could handle color evap lines.  That would drive me crazy.  At least with $tree the evaps are only gray or shadowy white.  The last test I took was Target brand and it gave me a blueish gray evap line (hours later).  I know, throw them away after 10 minutes.  But luckily it wasn't right away or I'd be mad!!

i bought some that were not as cheap, but detected at like 10-15. i got a false positive. i dont suggest taking those super early tests. its horribly disappointing you know? i like the dollar tree tests, they are cheap, and detect 25 or so. good luck!!

I did get slight evap lines but none that I would have ever questioned, this month I got the faintest of pos at 10DPO then I got a faint pos the following day 11DPO and a BFP on a Clearblue digital the same day. I think the cheapies are great.

I'm pretty sure they were evap lines :(.    I tried an FRER this AM with FMU and got BFN.  

I'm believe I o'd on 3/18 so I am estimating I'm CD10.   But who knows what's going on this month.  I wasn't able to use OPK because I had a lot going on in beginning of month AND....IAF came two days late 3/10, but I think I o'd early on 3/18.   I'm 85% certain I did O because I had a lot of EWCM prior and I felt the ovulation pain....and when I was doing OPK on  the normal O days (CD 14 - 16)  I did not get a positive LH surge.  

Well. who knows... I wasn't really trying this month anyways.

If you are trying to get a HPT that detects early try FRER.  I swear they are so good.  You can get a box of 3 at target for $14.99 and they pick up HCG as low as 12 and at 6.  I kid you not, I got a positive - very faint line of course and blood test confirmed positive, but HCG was just 6.  


Good luck!!
