    I agree, however... we are told by the testing instructions and by our doctors offices, and on here too, that a line is a line is a line. So it's not easy to just throw out such information when our desire is for it to be true in that instance. KWIM?

    Thats a good point, and it really makes you wonder... do they tell us a line is a line because they WANT us to buy more tests? lol...

    I am getting excited about all this information!
    I'm back, baby.

    I got a dark blue BFP on a Clear Blue and Easy test about a year ago. Wasn't pregnant. Ended up with AF that weekend.

    So i was thinking on this... what if the blue dye tests are picking up something *else* in our systems, creating these false positives?

    I mean, medical science does not know all there is to know about everything. I am pondering the possibilty that in appx. 25% of the female population, we are producing a certain *something* that is reacting with the dye (or at least the chemical they use to make the antibodies stick...)

    Hmmmm... what say you?

    My question with at least the CBE blue dye test is, they use the same stick in their opk's, right? SO, if you take the hpt far enough along dpo wise (14+), and see a pretty dark blue line, I'd say yea, you are probably pregnant. If, like I do, you start to poas at 9 or 10 dpo, and there's that faint blue line on the CBE blue dye test, maybe it's just picking up the LH in the system, which is present at all times during a cycle. Two cycles ago I was pregnant and did a CBE digi, came up pregnant. Decided to take it apart knowing it was a blue dye test. I should have taken a picture, but since it ended in an early m/c, I just threw it out. I have to say, that line wasn't super dark, it was at 11dpo during the day, and if I saw it on a 'regular' CBE blue dye test, I'd have said pregnant....BUT, that line was no darker than any of the blue dye tests I've seen here that were questionable and ended in AF. (I also got clear +'s on pink dye tests and + betas, so no doubt on that one, m/c'd at 5 weeks)

    I guess my point in all this is, I forgot about that CBE digi test til now, and to me, if there's even a minute question on whether a test might give a false +, I'd avoid it at all costs if testing early.

    Bit of a back story:

    I got pregnant in March of 07 and m/c in May. Didn't TTC in June or July. In August we started TTC again and I got THREE positive results on blue dye tests (can't remember which ones, but it was a +/- test) and got negative on one pink test. Went to the doc for a blood draw 2 days later and was not pregnant. Levels at 0.

    Doc probably thought I was crazy because I was right back in the office in Sept. asking for another blood test. Luckily I WAS pregnant that month! lol

    Oh this really scares me. I am 9 days late for my period I believe that would be 24dpo and yesterday afternoon my fiance went and purchased a Clear Blue test there was a thin blue line vertically indicating that I am pregnant. After finding out horrible stories about Evap lines I asked him to go out and purchase another one, sadly he purchased Clear Blue again and with in 2 minutes (10 max) the line was there, I must admit it was faint but you could see it. It wasn't as dark as the plus on the box but it wasn't as light as what I've seen on the internet. I am so scared to find out I am not pregnant as I have spent the last two days reassuring my fiance everything will be alright. What do you think yes or no, it was within 2 minutes I've heard that if it's after 10 minutes you should disregard the test, also if the vertical line is colourless or grey.

    I will appreciate any feedback.

    Thank You,

    I would say get a First Response or a digital. Or if you get a store brand, make sure its pink dye. Good luck!

NO BFP or even faint lines on those, but the blue dye test was as BRIGHT and clear as day. I personally think they are more sensitive then the pink dye tests.
    I'll vote on this side. With my second pregnancy at 8dpo I got faint + on blue dye and a super sensitive pink dye IC. I didn't get a + on FRER or regular IC for a few more days. In the future I'll just avoid them because you ladies have me worried, but I'm guessing they're just too sensitive. Also, it's harder to tell the difference between blue and gray (evap) than pink and gray!

    im new too the board not the site

    im EBF and for the last week i been feeling a lil sick and having alot of cramping Like AF is about to show.

    SO I TEST
    I got a Faint + on a Clearblue.
    I grab the box so fast cause they were on sale and didnt realize they were blue dye till i got home & tested.
    I couldnt remember if i had heard about blue dye test,
    So i researched it out and now im 99% sure im NOT pregnant after reading this. I ordered some pink dye test to take in a few days just to make sure though

    After reading all this you would think blue dye test would be banned
