Did you wait the entire 9 min 59 secs for the 1St response? I think they take a little longer to pull that second line than some...

I got a faint positive (definitely positive, but not dark by any means) the other morning with a FRER, using concentrated fmu, and later that morning had a beta hcg test done (blood pregnancy test). It turned out my hcg level was 227! I completely lost faith in the FRERs at that point! I took another FRER the next morning (just because I had one and was curious), and it was very strongly positive. I think they can vary a lot from stick to stick. They are supposed to pick up on it when your level's as low as 15, but it's really hard to imagine that the test I used would have done that given that it was faint for 227.<br><br>
I would wait a couple of days and retest with a clearblue digital. No question there!<br><br>
HTH!<br><br>
