    *NOT PREGNANT NOR TRYING* just curious. I've always bought FRER since that's what's recommended here but what about next time??

    I just get whatever's cheapest. Those bendy FRERs I found to be like 75% defective (no results, whatsoever) but I've not had problems with any other brands, pink OR blue. People decry blue dye but it's not like EVERY blue dye test ever is defective or they wouldn't still be on the shelves.

    Anyway, I use the 88 cent tests from Walmart.

    I have an 88 cent test under my bathroom sink from forever ago because i didn't realize i would have to pee in a cup and use a dropper. i do not have a cup i'm willing to use for that.

    Go to a fast food place and get a kids meal, then use said kids meal cup as your under the sink cup I may or may not have stolen one of the kids size plastic Cane's cups DD had in the cabinet and converted it to my under the sink (tucked in the back so NO ONE sees it) cup.

    Just get two different tests from different manufacturers. FRER and Equate. Or dollar store and ClearBlue. Etc, etc. All tests suck at one point in time or another. When they change packaging, have a bad batch, change the paper they use... cross reference for best results.
