Walgreens Tests?

So I asked my husband to get me some tests because AF is still a no show and in the past couple days I've started experiencing exhaustion, nausea, and back ache ... I should have started yesterday. DH got the Walgreens brand and I've always used First Response ... I got a negative on Sunday with FMU on my First Response and today without FMU I got a really faint line on the Walgreens test.

I'm not sure whether to trust it or not because I've never really been one to trust or use generic tests of any variety. I'll test again with FMU tomorrow and if I keep getting positives with these I'll either get a First Response or just call my doctor for a blood test ... but I just don't want to get excited if these tests suck ...

Anyone have any experience with these?

The generics are generally pretty reliable and comparable to the name brands. I would say that if it's a pink dye test it should be reliable (though I always retest no matter the brand), but if it's a blue dye test I would be more skeptical.

Oh and btw: Where is our pic to obsess over?

Ditto! Surely you have some FMU by now! Wink
