Still trying to figure out my cycle so test daily per doctor. The last 2 mornings they have been a shade under the control line but yesterday afternoon I retested and nothing but a control line. But then this morning there is another shade under line. Really frustrating and pissing me off.

Unfortunately it's answer brand. I live out in the country and the closest store is30 mins away and that's all the have. I tried to get the dt test but my store has a 2 limit. Not worth driving into town every 2 days lol. Was going to order some off of Amazon but wasn't sure which ones.

I agree with the above, answer brand was a waste of money. Did the exact same thing to me. Get some wondfo off the internet and save yourself from lots of frustration!

I hated answer brand....used them once..never got a true positive
switched to wondfo and never had a problem

I also found out you shouldn't test first thing in the morning it will give you a false positive. Supposedly the best time to test is either early afternoon (1ish) or early evening (5 or 6)

I use Clearblue advanced smiley ones requested from my RE. It tells low high or peak days. Real simple and cheaper (20 tests) if get on sale or online. These you take with FMU or longest pee hold.
good luck
