question for Leora on Amazon HPTs

Postby LYD10 » Wed Dec 21, 2011 9:19 pm

Hi Leora - you've had a lot of experience with Amazon HPTs (those cheapy strips). How sensitive would you say they are? I am about to embark on my POAS journey and want to be fully prepared with all the information :) i have a bag of those in my bathroom now. i tested them on the trigger and they defintiely work - i am just not sure of their sensitivity.

Urghhhh. here we go. i hate this part. this weekend is going to be either really good or really depressing.

i am so sorry about your beta doing stupid stuff. i hope it resolves without the meth. 3 months wait is pain.

I'm sure Leora will post soon, but in the meantime, this website might be helpful:

You guys- I got a positive HPT! Super faint because it is 8dpo but. Unless it is still the trigger. Which I don't think so because I tested on Monday and got a negative HPT. Unless I didn't wait long enough then. In any case, I took a picture - and it's even fainter in the picture- its the faint line in between the two darker lines.

Anyway, I will see if it is darker or lighter tomorrow. I so hope this is not the trigger.

Lydia - Amazon charges about $50 to ship anything to Israel - so I don't shop there often :D I buy mine on eBay from a British company -- I highly recommend to others. I have slightly different strips.

Usually, the sensitivity is printed on the package for mine - I specifically buy very very sensitive ones - 10iu/ml

that is DEFINITELY a BFP! I really hope that's not the trigger! CONGRATS!

Thank you, Leora!!
Now i am worried this might still be the trigger. I tested on Sunday and saw the trigger, then again on Monday and didn't see it. I am just worried that maybe I didnt wait long enough on Monday before throwing the stick out. I think I did, but I am starting to doubt myself. I am still getting used to these stiks that take longer to come up. But reviews on amazon are great andpeopleare happy with the. They are called wondfo pregnancy test strips and I think people are saying they are 20 sensitivity. Of course I threw away all the paperwork,which was super minimal anyway.

okay - maybe celebration is too soon --- but keep peeing!

(and your trigger was how long ago? If ER was 8 days ago, trigger was 9.5 days ago? That should be fine! How 'big' was your trigger - ie, how much HCG?)

The test is darker this morning. Thank god, I thought I was going to faint waiting for the results. These strips say wait 5 min before reading. I am of course watching as it develops, but for the 1st couple of minutes you are staring at white. OMG, I am so relieved. last night I was seriously second guessing myself that this might be the trigger. It hasn't been 24 hours since the 1st test. I took the 1st at 3:30pm yesterday and 2nd at 8:30am. Today is 9dpo.
I've never gotten a BFP this early - at 8dpo. Do you think it's likely to be twins?
