Not necessarily, digital tests are less sensitive than FRERs. FRERs can pick up VERY low levels of hcg that digitals would not recognize yet. Spotting/light bleeding can happen this early and be nothing to worry about. Since you have a couple of positive tests, you could call your ob/gyn and schedule an appointment for a blood test to confirm. It also could be a chemical pregnancy (very early miscarriage) if you continue to bleed or get your full on period. Unfortunately only time will tell at this point unless you go in for blood work and do a 48 hour follow up to see if your hcg is rising properly. But for now, congratulations and good luck!!

I’m sorry there’s so much anxiety around the time you should be super happy. I’d recommend using the same brand. Plus you could have had a diluted urine. Good luck!!

I would call your doctor and have them test your HCG to see if it is going up.

Chloeeee:  Agree with the PPs. Call your doctor and have them bring you in for a blood test. That’ll be more accurate and you can discuss with him/her your pregnancy.

Congrats on your BFP!!! Good Luck!!!

Chloeeee:  I agree with PP’s who suggest going in for bloodwork. I think FRER says they can detect HCG at 25 mlU and clearblue digital is probably 50 mlU, also this early the dilution of your urine can affect the results of a test, so don’t panic right now. Good luck!

Chloeeee:  I agree with others, it might just be too early for a digital. Digitals are notoriously less sensitive. If it’s just light bleeding, you might not be out yet. Call you doctor and get an hCG beta draw, then 48 hours another one to make sure your numbers are doubling.

I took 2 dollar store pregnancy tests and they were both positive before my missed period and then i took a clear blue digital and got “not pregnant” too and I waited a few days and took another digital and then it said “pregnant 2-3. Like others have said, it may be too early to detect on a digital.

I’m so sorry you are dealing with this. I had a CP in May. Got positives 3 days in a row on FRERs then got AF. It really does suck. Hang in there.
