Hello everyone

I was hoping to get some opinions.
First of all, I am about 7-9 days past ovulation...according to my charting. I have been sick this cycle (and still am) so I am not 100% sure when ovulation took place.
Anyhow, I took an early pregnancy strip test yesterday and today (I know, prob. too early to test) from thefertilityshop.com (sensitivity of 20 mIU/mL) and there was definitely a very, very faint line. I had taken the same kind of test a few days ago and there was nothing. I heard from someone on another board that this kind of test has been known to give false positives. So... today I went and got a FRER and it was negative. I am not sure if the FRER has the same sensitivity as the other one though.
Has anyone had experience the the fertility shop strip tests??
I am going to post a pic. and would love some opinions as to whether or not it could be a false positive, evap. line, or a possible positive. I do not know what to think at this point.

my advice, get the walmart brand! it showed up the strongest out of two brands for me. so if you get it tonight and test tomorrow as soon as you get up it will be like 48 hours since this test and could be easier to read. good luck

I've gotten BFP's on FRER's with a HCG of 5-10 and have a friend who got her BFP on a FRER with a HCG of 4 so they're extremely sensitive. IMO if you got a BFN on the FRER I would believe that over the internet strip test.

But it is early so don't get too down!
