Are digital tests more or less sensitive?
I know to stay away from blue dye tests but what tests are the most sensitive and best for early detection?

From what I've seen on here the digital's a less sensitive then most other tests. Most don't get a digital until a faint line already shows on like a frer

No digital are for closer to AF is due. Not good for early detection. Use a FRER for the most sensitive.

Frer is good for early detection. I always use Walmart cheapies and dollar tree tests early and never had an issue. Digitals are for closer to AF.

Urine samples of non pregnant females usually contain less than 5 mIU/ml (milliInternational Units per milliLitre) hCG. After conception, levels of hCG will increase rapidly in a normal pregnancy. By the day the period is due hCG levels of approximately 50 - 250 mIU/ml are expected. During the first trimester, levels of hCG should double every 48 - 72 hours.



  • Some tests are very sensitive and will detect even very low levels of hCG (12.5 mIU/ml) in your urine. If you want to know as soon as possible, these tests are the best choice for you.
    Examples: First Response Early Result, hCG One Step Ultra, LifeSign Midstream



  • Most tests will detect levels of hCG 25 to 50 mIU/ml in your urine. These tests are good for when your period is a day overdue.
    Examples:
    Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Inverness, Target, Boots, Dollar Store, Self Care, CVS Midstream
    Eckerd One Step, Wal-Mart Equate, First Response, Drug Emporium, Clearblue Easy, EPT



  • If you have recently had a miscarriage or recently given birth, you may be prone to false positives. In this case, the best pregnancy test would be one that will only detect a higher level of hCG (100 mIU/ml).
    Examples: Conceive, Precise, Q-Test



  • If you are worried about having trouble reading the test, there are home pregnancy tests available that have digital readouts that simply say 'pregnant' or 'not pregnant'. These tests check for 40 mIU of hCG or higher.
    Examples: e.p.t. Certainty digital, Clearblue Digital, Eckerd Digital

I screwed up and got the digital. My periods have been about every 25/27 days apart. My LMP was June 14. I took a digital yesterday afternoon and it was negative....Im at day 31/32 Where is evil AF?!?! I swear I've had small traces of blood when I wipe but nothing. Ive been wearing a pad for 4 days now in fear that I will start.
