I got a faint BFP on a Wondfo at 9 DPO and squinters on FRER and Pregmate. The Wondfo and Pregmate kept showing progression every day but the FRER stayed baaarely visible and significantly lighter than even the Pregmate. We have a history of losses and this gave me so much anxiety. I was able to find a couple of older posts around the internet about false negatives or faint lines on the FRER even after strong positives from other brands, so my SO went to Target to get a new box of FRERs. We made sure they were from different batches and tested again this morning (12 DPO). The difference is HUGE. I feel like this is definitely a bad batch (or batches) of FRERs? We got them from Walmart a few weeks ago.
FRERs that we’ve gotten recently have been terrible for indent lines too. I was so convinced that I could see a vague line on negatives from some angles, but SO took one and we dipped another in water and I could see it on those too.
There’s a good chance that others will experience this as FRERs are so popular. Hopefully this will also help others who are having similar issues in the future because finding the older posts definitely helped me.
(I’ve tried to post this a few times and none of it is showing up, so hopefully there won’t be 5 duplicate posts that show up at some point lol. If that does happen – sorry!)
