I don't mean how sensitive - ie the lowest HCG they can detect. I mean reliable, as in how many are duds? I had taken 4-5 HPT (EPT brand) this year and at least one of them was a dud - the control line never showed up. I am wondering whether the HPT I took this morning was a dud as well (it gave me BFN after all at 13dpo). As the front swept through the window, it colored both windows pink. The control line was visible only after several minutes. Usually, the tests act differently for me.

Oh, this is just wishful thinking on my part.
