I bought a pack of these without looking at the picture too closely. Got home and saw the picture showed blue lines. I should return these to save myself heartache and confusion, right?

I'd use them and if you get a line just follow up with a hpt from the 99cent store or dollar tree<br><br></span>

I always tell my friend who are actively testing to always pee in a cup (like a disposable one) and dip the test into that. That way if you get a "questionable" looking test you can follow up with the same urine sample with another brand/type of test.

I'd return them, but I 100% don't trust blue dye tests unless they are blaring, and I like to test early which doesn't usually mean blaring lines... if you are testing at like 17dpo or something go for it, but honestly, you probably will want another test to mae sure anyway, so I'd save yourself the stress and get a better test. the dollar tree tests are fairly solid tests, the 5 day FRERs are good too. I have also had great luck with the purple dye equate +/-.

I would return them or only use them for fun..<br><br>
Dollar store tests are way more accurate than any blue dye test. I prefer the FRER to any test out there though.<br><br>
I am 31 weeks and 5 days with twins and i still get faint positives on blue dye tests and they have never given me a clear positive.

I'm planning to return them - probably Monday when the customer service line is more reasonable!<br><br>
But I did go by Dollar Tree and picked up two tests there. Faint, faint line! So I guess I'll take the other one tomorrow morning. Then hubby will probably want to confirm with a digital - he didn't believe our faint BFP with our son.
