I've never gotten a false positive or evap on any kind of test... I gotta start buying blue dye tests. It'll give me something to obsess over.
plan4fate and AshleyO like this.

Yes, blue dye tests notoriously give positives when hcg is in fact 0. I've even know MEN to get positives on them.

LOL, remind me not to get these tests haha. I have the First Response Early Results (I think that's the name) as Elle suggested them. I believe those have the pink dye.

Men??? WOW!!! So what exactly is a blue dye test & how do I avoid them? (though that could be a pretty funny prank to pull on a guy in the right scenerio! hahaha Never funny as a prank for a woman!)

basically if it's not a cheapie, a dollar store test, a walmart 88 cent test, a First response test or an Answer test.. it's a blue dye. + or - tests are always blue dye.

The actual clear blue brand ones are NOT has horrendous as all the other ones. The ones that are most accurate of the cheaper out of blues are the Target up and up brand.

Why do people continue to use them if they are well known for false positives? (honest question, not criticism)
