hey the best way to no for sure is to go get a blood test done

First Response pg tests check with hcg as low as 20, as far as I understand it Clearblue digital tests at about 50 I think. So might be that your hcg is just not high enough yet to register on that type of test. Go to a search engine like google and check peeonastick.com, tells all about accuracy of hpt's. As far as I understand it, you RARELY get a false positive on a hpt, but sometimes you can have a chemical pregnancy where you are pg but the pg doesn't proceed and ends early. Hopefully, your hcg is just low. Good luck. xx

Crystal... try the digital again in a couple of days with your fmu...for most women that has the most concentrated amount of hcg in it. I know I told you on one of the other threads that FMU didn't work as well for me... but then again my body always has to go with what's not normal (lol) The digital isn't as sensitive as the first response, so if you had 2 positives with those, I would go with that and test again in a few days. Good luck!

Thank yall so much! I think im going to take the other test wednesday (if i can wait that long..lol

each test is VERY different...first responce can detect the pregnancy hormone EARLIER than the rest. Maybe you dont have enough HCG in your blood for the other one to show positive. I say your preganant FOR SURE...you wouldn't get TWO positives from first responce unless you were actually pregnant. I found out I was prego throught first responce...a faint second line. Now I'm 16 weeks! =)

First Response didn't work for me until days past my period due date. However, ClearBlue digital said "Pregnant" the DAY my period was due. After all the faint lines, "am I?" I've given up on those!! I will now ALWAYS use the digital (so much easier!). Anyway.... is your period actually LATE yet?? I would just try to wait until day after to test! signed, A former pregnancy test ADDICT! lol. Good Luck!!!

hi Monique thanx for helping out , yes i did miss af, its over a wk late now...i just took another clearblue easy digital and it came out NOT pregnant...i was so upset...well, anyways, what do you guys think i should do now?

I did First Response too and I had that really faint line too (positive). I am definately pregnant (in my fourth month now) - I think it's almost impossible to get a false reading of positive - it can't pick up the positive unless you have hpt in your blood, which only happens when you're pregnant - so I'd say YES you are pregnant.

hate to say it but go to dr or free clinic n get tested studies show however a false positive is rarer as in if u had 2 say u were and experation date is good n u did test as it says more than likely congradulations! but go to dr asap!

but there are reasons such as an old test or damaged test , blood in your urine ,a urinary tract infection,kidney problems,some tumors, meds such as anticonvolsants,anti parkingsons drugs ,tranqulizers,diuretics,promethazine all these produce hcg which is what tests test for
