Hi there-

For those of you who used EPT Certainty Digital, at how many DPO did you get your BFP? How did you like this test compared to others? I heard that it isn't as good for catching early pg, due to the fact that it tests for higher concentrations of HCG...

I'd love to hear about your experiences!!!

Thanks!

I was 12 DPO when I got a positive with the Clearblue Easy Digi. The night before (at 11 DPO) I used the Clearblue Easy Digi, I used the Answer Early Result HPT.

Here are the HCG levels that they detect:

Answer Early Result Pregnancy Test: 25 mIU
Clearblue Easy Digital Test: 100 mIU

I used the digi to be SURE that I was b/c I knew it tested at a higher level, but I should've known since false positives when you're not on any drugs is a little hard to come by... haha.

Hope that helped.

We weren't TTC, but I got a positive on the EPT Certainty at what (I think) was around 17 DPO. I know the lines aren't supposed to matter, but my test line was darker than the control.

Good luck!

According to Babyhopes' chart (http://www.babyhopes.com/pregnancy-test-sensitivity.html), the EPT Digital tests to 50mIUs, and the CBE Digital tests to 25mIUs. They say the checked in teh last 6 mos with the manufacturers.

If that's the case it's going to depend on when implantation happened for you. It happens between 5-12dpo, so if you implant on 11 or 12dpo, there is no way those tests are going to work at that point.

I tested with CBE Digital on 13 dpo, and my beta from the evening before was 64. The positive result came up within seconds. So I probably could have tested with it on 10 or 11dpo and gotten a positive result--which means implantation was on the earlier side of that range.

The CBE Digital tests 25 mui so it's good for before AF is due.

I tested in the afternoon of 11DPO and it came up "pregnant" within 30 seconds. Totally shocked me too--i was sure it would say 'not pregnant' b/c of the time of day and time of cycle i took it.

I got a BFN with a CBE digital at 10DPO and a BFP at 11DPO with non-FMU.

I got a BFP on 10 DPO without FMU. I was VERY suprised:)

*bump*

I'm 13 dpo today and I've gotten very faint lines on a store brand early response test and FRER at 11, 12, & 13 dpo. However, I'm still getting BFNs on a store brand digital and EPT digital. AF is due tomorrow. I keep waiting for that beautiful "Pregnant" to show up on the digital! :rolleyes: I'm sure I just don't have enough hCG built up to a BFP on the digital, but this is very different than when I was PG with DD. With her, I got BFPs on all tests at this point. :confused:

I got my BFP on the CBE Digitals with DS at 12DPO and with this pregnancy on DPO11 (I think, don't know when I O'd this cycle.

I usually use Equate with the plus sign (with DS) or the Target brand (this pregnancy) and then got the digital to confirm.

14DPO. I was getting faint positives on the other ones for 2-3 days before I finally saw that beautiful "Pregnant" :)

The first time I got a + from CBE digi on 12 DPO. This last time I got two negatives on 12DPO & 14DPO (after a faint + from Equate on 11DPO), even though my hCG was 62 on 14DPO. I finally got a digital + on 15DPO.

11 DPO with Walgreens brand digital. That was the same day I got a faint BFP with a Walgreens brand EPT-type test.
