So I decided to test today, 11 dpo. Then after I took the test, I realized it was a blue dye. I hate blue dye! I don't know how I missed that at the store! This one is bfn but the stupid line color ran and bled to the other side. This is the second time that has happened to me. Argh.

I have a few Walmart cheapies left but I need to go out and get my Answer brand. I've liked those the best and I don't know why I keep taking the cheap route

For me, the dye always runs together. Like the control line bleeds into the space where a positive should show up. It's very clearly running, not turning blue because I am pregnant.

Those are the issues I have with them. I prefer pink dye but I am cheap and often but store brand...this one was tricky because it had the pink cap and everything.

I'[ve heard a number of woman having false posiives or bleeding blue dye tests that's why I stay away from them, Hopefully when you get your answer you see a blaring BFP Fx'd

Yeah they suck . Sorry you picked up the wrong one!

The blue dye are so bad for dye runs that look like bfps. or those who aren't familiar with how dodgy they are, a good rule to go by if you are going to test with them then the test line has to be a full thickness line and dead centre. Any skinny lines or off centre lines or both = a bfn, no matter how dark it is. There have been some impressive dye leaks that could fool someone pretty easily.

The stupid packaging had me fooled! I'll just play it safe and get what I know works from now on!
