Yep agree with the ladies above. I have confirmed (with blood tests) that they can test down to at least a 5!

Agreed with the other ladies -- Wondfo strips from Amazon. They do detect levels as low as 5 (I was testing positive when my hcg was only 7).

The only word of caution with them is that for a while, they produce very faint lines. So if you get a line, and it's faint, don't be nervous. They don't get as dark as quickly as FRERs.

I've also never gotten an evap on them. I've tested them in DH's urine, in tap water, and when I wasn't pg... never even a shadow of a line. Every time I've had a super faint line that I thought I must be making up, it turned into a real positive within a couple days.

These are the tricks you learn after years of TTC! Last time, I bought 50 wondfo test strips for $15 or so. I think you can get 25 strips for $8 or something. They are so cheap you can POAS like a true addict.

I am so mixed on these!
They pick up my trigger forever and they also like to catch chemicals (and they are so light you think you are crazy and not sure if it's a loss or not)...
I used to be a big pusher but now I am using FRER. I went backwards and started with ic then went to FRER LOL!
