But I don't lol. How sensitive are the IC tests? Like 20 or more like 50? I just took one and of course it was negative. But I was reading the directions and it said that limitations included if it was less than 50.... so hoping maybe it was just too early. I used one of them last time I got my BFP at 11 dpo and had a line, but I also wonder now if I was really only 11dpo looking at that chart.... I dunno.

I knew I shouldn't have tested yet! I was going to test tomorrow if temps were still up, but I might wait til Friday now if temps stay up instead.

I think a lot of it depends on which IC you used. They can vary on sensitivity. I've used two differen't "brands" before and one set was more sensitive than the other. I also got better results using FMU. Hope that helps a bit.

You could probably check their website and see how sensitive they are. But, I do think they are pretty sensitive.

YES! I love this. I vote that all woman should have the button!

Alicia from what I have seen/read about, they all pretty much "say" 50miu, but some tests are so sensitive they can pick up 6miu. I think THAT part depends on the brand, but of course to cover their butts, the company has to say the higher number, for accuracy counts.

I believe those ones are 20miu's. That being said, as someone else pointed out, they dont show up DARK for a long time. Also I thought i'd tell you that I got a bfn at 10dpo with my son, re-tested at 12dpo at got a bfp Its probably just too early for you, your chart still looks real good

ive used the 10miu your talking about, and yes they work, but they also pick up a chemical really easily, so I dont use them anymore.

I hav2 heard they pick up at 20.

I always do the FRER, and now that from my own experience know that they pick up as little as 7.3hcg I will always use them.
