It’s my first time using internet cheapie tests. How long does it take for the test line to be as dark as the control line? The lines are almost the same darkness on my FRER but the test line on my cheapie test is much lighter still.
Anyone with experience with the internet cheapies? Thanks, bees!

The same thing happened to me! I had a clear positive on a FRER and my cheapie was still very faint. I went to the doctor and got everything confirmed and took a cheapie at home for shits and giggles and it was still very faint. I just stopped testing after that.

I had the same issue with my first pregnancy…I’d get a great line on the FRER, and barely any color to the cheapie. While I did end up miscarrying eventually, my hcg was absolutely high enough that I should have gotten a much more solid line. I had one left for this pregnancy, and got the most faint whisper of a line on the cheapie that I had to edit to see, and a good line on the FRER like 12 hours later (and I got my hcg tested that day, it was solid and should have resulted in a better line). Anyhow, I didn’t order anymore cheapies, and honestly, I won’t ever use them in future pregnancies. They suck.

My wondfos never progressed like my FRER. I had a dye stealer on my FRERs and my wondfo almost seemed like it was fading. I threw out the box! That was two weeks ago. Still pregnant:)

I tested with an internet cheapie, and an internet cheapie ovulation test. (I wasn’t sure where I was at in my cycle..,) The ovulation test came out positive with a faint (barely there) line on the pregnancy one. Dipped an FRER in the same urine and it was blazing positive.
im due in 4 weeks 🤷♀️

same. I had dye-stealers on FRERs and squinters on internet cheapies. She’s 2 now.
