walmart cheapie test

Anyone have false positives with the .88 tests from walmart? We have been having safe sex but I got a very obvious bfp on one tonight. An hour or so later I got a bfn on an FRE so im confused. Any recent bad batches maybe?

I've heard they aren't very sensitive, so I have no clue! I would probably try testing again in the morning.

Well testing an hour later likely meant you didn't have enough hcg in your urine. Did u get a BFP within a time frame? Was it pink or grey?

Re: walmart cheapie test

Pics? Did you use the same pee for both tests? If not maybe your urine was to diluted to show BFP on the FRER. I would retest in the a.m. with FMU.

Re: walmart cheapie test

I too have heard they aren't very sensitive...and that is VERY positive. I would say try another FRER with FMU and I bet money it's a BFP

Re: walmart cheapie test

The cheapie looked like I could see an obvious antibody strip before the color ever showed up because I kept seeing it and thinking that it had no color. I laid it down, went in the kitchen to check on the kids and went back to find it with color. I immediately ran back to Walmart and got more tests. We have been avoiding for the past 2 months or so. I went to the OB on the 6th and she said I was ovulating then. We have been safe every since and I should only be like 10dpo at the most. I am sorta freaking out right now. I would think even diluted urine shouldve shown something at least on the FRE since I didnt think the cheapies were super sensitive like the FREs are huh? The FRE is STARK BFN, no hint of a line at all and I usually always have line vision.

Re: walmart cheapie test

I agree, it is very positive. If this is a false positive it is one of the worst I have ever seen and I wouldnt recommend this test at all. On the other hand, if it is truely a BFP I would swear by these tests for sure since I would be fairly early.

10dpo is a pretty good time to be testing...I've not ever tested that early with FRER, though that is usually my go-to

Test again...if the Walmart ones are that sensitive, the dilution of your urine shouldn't, matter, I agree. Honestly, at only .88, I would be testing EVERY time I peed lol
