Have you heard/seen about this?

I got my Parents magazine today, and there was an ad for a pregnancy test (the name escapes me @ the moment) that is sorta like a digital but it doesnt read "not preg" or "preg" either a + or - lights up but you can reuse the answer part of the stick and buy replacements to pee on? I thought it was kinda cool but not as fun as watching the BFP (or BFN ) show up

Just wondering...

Yeah, I was wondering when someone would make something like that too! I always thought that it was stupid that they didn't sell "refills" for the clear blue easy digital ones.

Re: Have you heard/seen about this?

Please, please, please don't buy this test! It's called "Confirm Clearly" and it's available at WalMart. It's pretty inexpensive too. It is really, really, really bad, ladies. I received a false positive at only 8dpo on it last cycle (my DH and I are TTA), and after much freaking out I researched the test on Ovusoft, FertiltyFriend, and other TTC sites and counted TWENTY-ONE women who had recieved false positives (confirmed by negative betas) on Confirm Clearly. I'm not usually one to poke my nose in like this, but I beg of you all, please don't use this test unless you want to set yourself up for heartbreak and stress. The testmaker has been reported to the BBB and several of us have complained to the manufacturer.

I saw this in my Today's Parent today. I prefer the regular tests too.

I've never heard of it, I like my tests from the co-op or cheap dollar general ones

I saw these at Walmart early early this morning... Opted against it. My whole prob was I was opting for a not digital... more in another thread.

There's a theory that the CB OPK test sticks for their digital OPK reader can be used in a CB digital pregnancy test reader and tell you whether you're pg or not. So I'm not surprised to see this. But I don't usually buy the expensive digital tests since I'm such a POAS-aholic!

BTW, I think there's more on that OPK stick theory on http://peeonastick.com. I'm pretty sure that's where I read about it.

ETA: I think I may have this partly wrong, but I can't access peeonastick.com at work - it's blocked as sex ed! Humph!!! Anyway, I think it's the fertility monitor that's involved but again, you can check that website for details.
