Digital PG Tests

Hi all. My period is late (but my periods are irregular so that doesn't mean too much). Anyway, I bought a three pack of the Clear Blue Easy Digital Pregnancy Tests--the ones that test 5 days earlier supposedly. I took the first one with first morning urine and it came back pregnant--but I wasn't so convinced. So I took one a few minutes later and it came back not pregnant :(
Which one do I believe? I have one more test in the pack, but I'm going to wait until tomorrow morning to tack it. Any advice would be appreciated. I just don't know how I'll handle the next few hours wait!

Thank you so much for your response. I thought the digital would be more accurate as I've been ttc for about 4 months now and I didn't want any user error.
Bummer! :(

I'm going to take the last one either later today after a few hours of saving pee or tomorrow morning and I'm assuming it will probably say negative. If it says pos I'm going out to buy a first response!

FMU is the best so I'd believe that one (congrats!) if you didn't wait very long to do the second one then it was prob too diluted to pick up on any levels......I think I've read it's good to hold your pee for at least four hrs if not using FMU, so hold that pee girl lol!!!

Hi all. Just updating. I got the first response pregnancy tests and I took two of them (but only after holding my pee for two hours--sorry if TMI!) anyway, they both came back negative. I figured at this point they would be positive right? I am already about 1 day late for my period. Well anyway--I have 2 tests left--a first response and a digital test. I've been saving my pee since 1 p.m. my time so I have an hour or so to wait and then I'm going to take the digital again and see what it says. I figure out of three digital tests--two can't be wrong right? So if it says pregnant I'll start to believe it, but if it says not pregnant--then I think I'll 100% believe that.

Either way I'll also test again tomorrow morning with FMU with the more reliable First Response.

This is SO frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi all. Another update. I tested again with the Clear Blue Easy Digital Early Response and got a second Not Pregnant. This makes 5 pregnancy tests today that look like this:

FMU (about 10 a.m.--slept in!): Clear Blue Easy Digital Early Response: Pregnant
2MU (about 11 or 11:30--not too much pee!) Clear Blue Easy Digital Early Response: Not Pregnant
12:30: First Response: Negative
12:30: First Response (same urine--dark in color--peed in a cup for both tests): Negative

5:00 p.m.: Clear Blue Easy Digital Early Response (no peeing in between 12:30-5 p.m.): Not Pregnant

So after getting just one positive from a not so reliable digital I'm going to say I must have had a false positive :(

I will take my last First Response Test with FMU tomorrow morning, but if that also comes back negative than I'm 100% my late period must be a fluke or something...........

you really should have saved them for your FMU.

Hi all. Took a First Response Test just a few minutes ago and it came out negative :( Oh well. I learned my lesson though. I'm never trusting a Clear Blue Easy Digital test again! Or any Clear Blue Easy products for that matter. I'm going to call the help line today and ask for information on a refund.

Hoping for a BFP next cycle!

Thanks for all the support!

Wait a couple of days and if you don't get AF, then try testing again.
