Question about ICs

Hello there lovely ladies.....

I have a question. My husband and I are not TTC'ing, but not NOT either, ya know?

A friend sent me two internet cheapies and I totally screwed the first one up. No, trust me, I really did.

I took the other yesterday midday...how reliable are they? It was negative. But I'm having some tall tale signs of pregnancy and I'm super freaked out. I don't want to waste $5 on a test right now, today. But I was just wondering if these things are known for false negs?

Does anyone know their HCG cut off? Like, how much has to be in your system before it'll show on these little things?

With my daughter, I took a FRED and got a faint + and the next day had blood drawn and I was a 52.

Any help?

Re: Question about ICs

I am pretty sure most internet cheapies are supposed to pick up at around 20-25 .......but in my own experience.....the lines are super faint (almost like, is that a line?) in that range. I have always had good luck with Answer brand.

I hope you get the results you desire!

Re: Question about ICs

I agree witht he above poster. I had bought some IC's here on the FSOT with green handles and never got a nice line (had a chemical) even when it showed clearly positive on 2 other not so cheap tests.

Equates are nice and cheap and very reliable. Def BFN if it is and def BFP if it is. You can get one for under $5. Answers are also very good. I got a clear BFP on one with the chemical I mentioned.

GL to you..hope the result is what ya want.
