why do people buy blue dye tests?

every look at my squinter thread i see where the OP has a blue dye test its always "get a pink dye test" "blue dye is unreliable" etc so why even bother buying the blue dye test in the first place if you cant trust the line?

Haha. I have wondered the same thing maybe those mamas didn't know blue dye tests are unreliable until they posted here about it. Idk.

And some if us just have the bad luck of only finding a blue test when we really need one.

I never knew of pink vs blue dye? I always bought the Kroger brand, is that a specific dye?

I had no idea about the different colored dye. I guess I just buy a test when I think I might be pregnant and don't pay much attention.

Ok, thought about it more. I'm guessing its self explanatory, blue lines/blue dye, pink lines/pink dye?!

Not all boxes say what color dye they use.

i never knew the blue dye ones were bad until I came to the TTC forum here. I am not sure if all tests say if they are blue/pink dye on the box

Re: why do people buy blue dye tests?

It's funny because until I came on here I swore I read to look for blue dye tests, *shrugs* I end up taking a million different types by the end, Hah.
