whitums:  Depending on the lab and what test the provider ordered, usually a test ordered by a dr is more accurate than an at home test. In the lab I worked in, we had 3 testing options–1) a qualitative hCG test, ran on blood, which is accurate down to an hCG of <2; 2) a quantitative test, ran on blood, which would detect hCG concentrations >10; and 3) a quantitative test, ran on urine, which would detect hCG concentrations >20 (on that particular specimen. If your urine is especially dilute, then the hCG blood concentrations won’t match that of your urine specimen). Obviously, a lot of those thresholds depend on the lab, but they shouldn’t vary tooooooo much! 

Sorry to butt in, just wanted to make sure the info out there is accurate! 🙂 But I totally agree, don’t assume chemical, and test again with a FRER!!

katrinaarlene:  if it was an in-office test (versus sent to a lab) then @whitums is probably right!

katrinaarlene:  When will you test next or are you going to wait and see if AF shows? I don’t like the new curved FRERs. I used one last cycle and thought there was a line there but it was just the way the test was made. I want the flat FRERs back.

Hi this is the image inverted ( I learnt this from another bee who did it to someone else’s pee stick and it helped me with my faint BFP)
