So its been several years since we last were TTC and I know the tests have changed over the years especially the FRER. Since we are about to start TTC I want to stock up on pregnancy tests because I am crazy and must test every day after 5dpo. I want to know which tests people like best.
What are your favorite cheap test strips and why? do they get evaps?
What are your favortite name brand tests and why? do they get evaps?
Wondfo's are great for POAS-a-holics like me I use to be a proud supporter of Answer but since they went to the new green packaging.. they suck completely with HORRIBLE evaps. FRERs from walmart and target are not great either BUT the ones you can order from Amazon are for whatever reason better. The sticks feel more expensive compared to the FRERs from walmart.. i may be weird though
I like digitals but for after a has been confirmed due to the fact they are not sensitive at all.
BLUE dye test and I are enemies... so I stay away from them...
I agree with Gamer, except I don't know anything about a difference with frer's between store buying and amazon buying. I haven't noticed a difference, but I didn't really pay attention or think about it. I'm also not happy with answer's anymore. I don't care for blue dye's, but I kinda like the clearblue plus. I've read it gives evaps, but I like the handle and how the strip turns pink to let you know it's working. And I also like digi's, but only to follow up another + test.
I knew the FRER have not been great since they went from detecting 5 days before AF to 6 days before AF but I did not know that the Answer had also changed. I just bought a box of those. I will have to open it and see if they are green wrappers. Sounds like there are not really any good name brand tests left. Why oh why did they have to ruin the FRER. Those used to be so good. I remember there would not be even the slightest hint of a second line unless you had a real BFP.
I thought I liked FRER when I first started TTC but I definitely don't now. Maybe I will stick to the $5 forelife dip tests I can get nearby. Never seen a hint of anything on them whereas there have been using FRERS and have gotten faint/evap lines this cycle.
