. . when you want to "waste" a test? (i.e. you know it's most likely to early, but you feel like testing anyway- that type of thing).

Which test would you reach for? An internet cheapie/$1 test? FRER or another brand? Digital?

What do you use?

That's when I use a $store test. But now that I've seen a number of evaps on them, I think I'll end up stocking up with FRERs from Ebay again and only using those.

Edited to add- good luck Sara!

I'd use a IC or maybe even a OPK if i knew it would just be a waste anyway.

thanks Jackie I've not heard much luck with IC's lately - I don't have any, anyway. I think I'll waste a FRER tomorrow to get it out of my system or something, I have a few of them.

GL Sara! I usually just use an IC. I figure if it is inconclusive then I will do a FRER the next day. However, for me the results so far have always been very definite BFNs. Hopefully you'll get double lines with your FRER!

i have a stock of $tree tests! i only used those last cycle and saved a lot of money. I like equate and they're at least a little cheaper than FRER. BUT if there is a chance i would use the FRER! AND your chart is SMOKIN'!!
