1st Trimester

positive FRER but negative Digital??

I had 3 positive FRER's on thursday (2/7) but when I took a clear blue digital, it came back negative or "not pregnant" I waited until today to take another one and it still said "not pregnant" but FRER still shows positive. My period was due 2/5 so I am 6 days late. Are the digital test that much less sensitive??

Re: positive FRER but negative Digital??

  • Yup, definitely far more sensitive. Wait another few days. Be sure to test with FMU.

  • apparently.

    I never took one. I got positive cheapies (wondofos) and called it a day.

    If you get a + hpt (pink dye) you are PG.

  • FRERs are far more sensitive.

  • Thank you everyone! Now I can put my mind at ease! :)
  • So I should of taken the cheapo ones? I took 3 digital and all said pregnant.
    Love everyone.
  • I got positive Wondfo and FRERs on Thursday and I didn't turn a digital positive until Friday morning. I'm sure you will see it soon :)
  • Actually digitals are a lot more sensitive than they used to be and are often pos the same day as a frer. 

    Id call your OB for a blood draw. It sounds like it may be a cp.

  • no cheapo ones are more sensitive than frer.

    they are pos at around 6miu's.

    5 and under are considered neg.

    I actually agree that it may be worth a call to your dr. Frer picks up at 25 and digital picks up around 50. 3 days after your first positive you should be able to pick up a positive on a digital. I personally hate digitals because while they should make things easier, I think they are more stressful.

  • I also think this warrants a call to your doctor. I would request an hcg draw to check your levels and a repeat draw 48 hours later to check for proper rising. There a lot of factors in play, but the blood draws should give you a better idea of what's going on.

  • To pp.... Its true that both frer and digitals are listed to test pos. at levels higher than what I posted, I posted that based on what comes back from blood work in correlation to when a frer/digital was taken.

    They will give you a pos sooner than the company claims it will, they are just being 'safe'  and conservative to cover their ass's.
