First response test

I’m seeing a lot of mixed reviews for the first response tests, amazon has a lot of false negatives then target has a lot of false positives. Anyone get false positives?

    I don’t know about their accuracy. I don’t even bother with name brand/store brand tests. You can get 50 HCG test strips for $15 on amazon.

    I have never had a false result with first response. I also have used the HCG test strips that are cheap because I'm a testing junky (especially when I'm undergoing fertility treatment) but then I always confirm with first response and it has never lead me astray.

    I dont think first response has false results, but more likely misleading or confusing because the 1 line or 2 lines is tricky. It's common you might see just 1 line which you would think means "not pregs" but it's actually the location of the line that really matters, see my photo of a positive test. there was only one line and so I thought it meant "not pregnant" but if you look closely the line is not on the right side like it should be if it were a true negative result. So in the end, I was pregnant and the test was just kinda tricky to read. I did some research online and they said if your HCG levels are high enough it could pull all the pink coloring from the other "not pregnant" line.

    Honestly the little tests from Dollar tree are perfectly fine as long as thier not expired and they usually aren't in my area!

    I've bought exclusively from the pharmacy and had accurate results every time.
