    Clearblue pregnancy test

    Clearblue pregnancy test 9th Oct 17 at 7:26 PM
    My period was due 3 days ago, for the last 2 years my period is regular and I know the exact date my period will be arrive. I have took a clearblue pregnancy test today which was a faint positive. I then took a digital cleablue test and it said ‘not pregnant’

    I was just wondering if anyone else has had any experiences with the digital tests? I have read online that the digital tests can take longer to show pregnant

    My head is all over the place at the moment so I am just looking for other peoples experiences

    Thank you

    The digital tests are a lot less sensitive so can take longer to get a positive. I would try a first response (or look on the ttc front page for the link to the test sensitivity list and pick one that is more sensitive).

    The second test you did wouldn't have been with your first pee of the day and so the hormones won't have been as concentrated. It will make a lot of difference this early. Good luck for a more conclusive answer over the next few days.

    You are very unlikely to get a false positive apparently, so chances are you had a false negative (lower strength urine/hormones in second sample, for example, or less sensitive test). I'm sure it's difficult to be patient, but regardless of anyone's experience on here, that's what it's going to take for you to be sure I'm afraid!

    Thank you all, I took another clearblue test this morning and again there is a faint blue line there. I think I will leave it a few days before trying digital again

    Thank you, I have had really sore boobs since last week which I have not had before and light cramps today which I have read is normal. Also last week I broke out with spots on my face which I don't get and again have read others have had the same. I have another digital test which I will leave for the weekend so fingers crossed but both of the normal tests were showing as positive

    Go to Poundland and get a fistful of their tests - then try again over the next few days.

    The Poundland tests are perfectly good! Definitely go and get some of those and do not waste your money on posh ones!
    Should've = Should HAVE (not 'of')
    Would've = Would HAVE (not 'of')

    No, I am not perfect, but yes I do judge people on their use of basic English language. If you didn't know the above, then learn it! (If English is your second language, then you are forgiven!)

    If the line is no stronger by the weekend then make an appointment with your doctor next week to check that the levels of pregnancy hormone in your blood are as they should be, and yes, the cheap tests from HomeBargains, the pound shop etc are every bit as accurate as the more expensive ones.

    Just a quick update, I did another test this morning and the line was much stronger so I took another digital which also came back as positive

    I know it is early days but just wanted to update

    Congratulations as already pointed out, it's very unusual to get a false positive.
