First Response Fertility Test

I had one of those free with the 2 pack of FRER pregnancy tests and decided to take it yesterday. I was scared of what it would show me but was really shocked when it only produced a light line in the test window. Now, I'm not putting a lot of stock into it but I guess my mind was expecting the lines to be the same darkness

Hey Vickie, I am drowning my AF sorrows in a cup of caffeinated coffee at a coffee shop right now. After reading what u said I am going to get one of those tests. I need to figure my correct cycle day tho, yesterday cramping and spotting, today heavy. So is today cd 1 or two? I need to know if I am going to take that test. Anyone? In the meantime I am going to get another caffeinated coffee while I can. Hee hee. Just one more . . .

My fertility doctor counts as day 1 what they call "full flow".

Thanks Sandy! My cbfm works that way but just read the FRER fertility and it said count day one as the spotting day. So I guess it works differently. Who knew ttc could be so confusing! From what I read online they said the FRER fertility test only picks up really elevated fsh. So I better get only a faint line! Glad you did Vickie! Sandy, maybe I will have a glass of wine tonight too! Ha! Mary, 45. Ttc naturally

Mary, I'm glad you got the instructions on it. I happened to read mine a day too late last month and had to wait until this month to use it.

Well I took that test. Was hoping for a very faint line, uh, got a medium line. It wasn't as dark as the control so I am not worried. I know fsh changes month to month. Mine was 8 .9 5 months ago so , whatever. Can I have my money back now please, lol.

Sorry the line wasn't as light as you hoped but at least it wasn't
