super early detection
I test earlier like 7-9DPO with cheaper tests like fertility2family I buy in bulk cause I am a poas addict and when I am closer or if I get a faint line on them I use FRER just to double check. I have never had an indent or false positive with either brand . I have no idea why FRER test is getting such bad reviews.
Thought it was positive looked pink in the time limit then turned grey turned out to be a really bad indent not the first time it has happened either wont be wasting my money on these anymore
This is the second month in a row, this has shown false positives. I was so convinced that I had blood work done, and it was negative. So I’m spending around $100 on these damn hpts, go to the clinic to confirm, spend another $135 only to be left devastated and an absolute wreck. Been trying for 7 months now and I’m just utterly disappointed in this brand. Will never use again

Multiple False Positives!!
Very unsatisfied! Husband and I are trying to convince and were so elated to see the multiple positives in the last 2 weeks! I was so excited to show him the first one and we were overjoyed. Then seeing more thought many days show positive we were convinced. But upon seeing the dr and finding out that were not pregnant I'm just disgusted! I bout multiple packs from different locations including Walmart, Albertsons, and Amazon some two packs and some 3 packs. Total I took about 14-16 tests over a two week period and all except 4 showed a positiv...e result within the 3 min time frame. This test used to be my go to test. It showed me a positive right away with my first two pregnancies and I always recommend them, but now trying for a third I'm telling everyone to not wait your money! I have spent at least $100 on these tests this month and am left devastated switching brands for the months to come.

Would give it a zero if I could
Had a false positive. Hurt, emotional and a wreck right now. I have been trying for a year plus and shocked at how common false positives are with this brand. Do not recommend to anyone!

I got a three pack and have used two tests out of it. Absolutely nothing came up on them. I know how to use them because I've used a lot before and I've had a kid. But honestly don't waste your money.
Not to be trusted
Expiry date 03-2020, instructions followed, test did what it was suppose to according to directions. Emotional turmoil, ultrasound, urine test and additional internal examinations. Emotional stress , heartbreak, time and money wasted.

This product is great . The insructions are very easy to follow.
The results where very accurate and where very clear to see compared to other products
I even went and brought another one to double test to make sure (worth the money though)

Don't waste your money!
Used many times; between children, scares & losses.
Proper results every time until two years ago when they stopped working...
Instructions are easy to follow, but
Don't waste your money, use Dollarama test!
Expiry date shows 2020.
I took a test out & the clock was already flashing... used It cuz the box had no indication that this was not normal! Results took 5min as usual; came up "Yes+" then after about a minute changed to "No -" then immediately went blank. this is complete crap! Highly disappointing & a waste if nearly $30!! I should have just gotten a Dollarama test

Early pregnancy test
I have no idea why it is getting so many negative comments. This is the best pregnancy test which can be done at home as early as 4 weeks. When all other pregnancy tests showed negative because it was only around 5 weeks, first response gave me right result followed by a confirmation by a blood test result which confirmed 4 weeks. Highly recommended. Thank you.

Two lines and oh, I get my period! Absolutely disgraceful! And for someone who has had consecutive miscarriages, it was the most heart breaking thing. This needs to be taken off the shelves! Don’t buy First Response! Not fair!! I would love to take this further, this should not be allowed!
First response is no longer the best tests
Instructions clear, easy to follow. First response tests are truly the worst tests on the market now. They already had to remove the curved and now the old design is even worse. Positives on other tests long before even a hint of a line on frer. Go with a cheaper test. First response is not reliable anymore.
Out of a 7 pack I got 5 false positives with a faint second line that appeared within 3 mins. They didn't get darker over time.
Caused me so much confusion and anxiety I missed work too.
From previous comments I can see that the company is doing nothing to rectify the defective tests. Pure disrespect to theor customers mostly very vulnerable ones.
I'll be looking into AU government bodies where i could complain about this.

Used to love this test
First response used to be my go to for pregnancy tests. This year l used this test (countless times) it seems to have a very deceiving light line, and its on most of the first responses l have used. Its a shame, will be looking else where for a better brand.
Whatever they did to change this product l wish they would change it back to no fake lines or indent marks, its ridiculous, especially since women buy more then one test anyway, even double checking after getting a positive, its a shame. So disappointing.
Trying to fool people is no way to keep your brand alive.
I have received several positive tests, after several miscarriages, I now test early so thought these were great! Until I got a positive everytime I tested. I went back to the dr and had bloods taken which proved my HCG levels were normally and that the pregnancy tests should not have been picking them up.
Clear blue 6 days early all came negative and were correct.
Even to this day they are still producing positives when I am definitely not pregnant.
Heartbreaking for people who are desperately seeking that positive result. These should be recalled.
False negatives, second time happening!
Last month In Oct, 2018, i found out i pregnant unexpectedly. I had a bunch of cheapie test but i always had relied on First Response for confirmation. Well I got Clear Blue, FRER, and First signal. To my surprise the cheapie came up positive, so i took the Frer, and nothing. So instead of getting upset, i took the Clear blue cross line, and digital, and both popped up blazing positive, even the digital. So i took the FRER digital i had, and it said no. So i went to the Dr and had the pregnancy confirmed the following monday. Unfortunately, i m...iscarried 2 weeks later. So I BBT Chart my cycles, and to my surprise, i ovulated this past Black Friday/11/23/18 (didnt expect to after a miscarriage so soon. So on Dec 3rd, 10 days past ovulation, i took a cheapie, and it was faint. So i went out and bought two packages of FRER, one with digital, thinking it was just a fluke, a first signal, and a clear blue double pack with the digital. So i got my positive on my cheapie, the first signal, and on the FRER NOTHING!. So i took the clear blue and, boom, two blue lines. Im sitting here going what the heck!. So i wait a couple days, and my cheapie lines keep getting darker, so i take another FRER at 12-13 dpo, and NOTHING. These things have to be defective. I've never been so disappointed in a product that is advertised as early result. I used the old FR with my other two children just fine with no problem 3 years ago. I dont get it! I wrote the company and they basically told me that after a miscarriage, hcg can be detected up to 5 weeks after, i was only 4 weeks when i miscarried. Very early. My Hcg went from 69 - 5 on Nov 4th, 2018. Its December 6th, aint no way in hell its the same. Just giving everyone a heads up that if you get a negative on these tests, get a different kind, because it hasnt been accurate TWO MONTHS in a row with 3 different batches. Thanks
False positives causing emotional upset!
Used this product 4 times 2 months after the birth of my daughter. All came back with faint positives within the 3 minutes. Scared me silly as was too soon for me to be pregnant again. Numerous scans, blood work and tests later confirmed not pregnant!! Wish I had never used this product in the first place as has caused me so much emotional confusion!! It's difficult not to believe it when you see a faint second line but the doctors and hospital are convinced the tests were faulty. Never again will I be using them!!! Anyone else had a similar ex...perience? I have had severe anxiety over this. These tests should not be allowed to be so inaccurate as whether you are ttc or not ttc the results can be devastating! What a joke! Wish I had just used a different brand and saved myself this rollercoaster of emotions!!!
Giving faint second line, But not pregnant
I have used these test from few years ago when I conceived my son.
I’m embarrassed to say that I have got 3 packs 3 and they all showed second faint line. This is why I got more because I wanted to see if line was getting darker.
The line didn’t get darker. Not sure if these test are picking up on other hormone levels.
You should recall these products
I have had 5 positive results with first response all other tests done with clear blue or cheaper brands all came up negative. I since started bleeding I've been to hospital for various scans and bloods which state my hormone levels were below 5 indicating that I was never pregnant in the first place. This is disgusting that your brand would show someone who has been waiting years for this to happen there dreams had come true for them to be ripped away within a few days. Bearing in mind I did not use the early indicator I was 9 days late for my...period before testing I am emotionally drained at what I've had to go through Ang by the looks of the reviews this is a common thing. These need recalling and looking into as there is something clearly not right! Disgusted with first response

Questions & Answers
Why do your tests keep showing a second grey line? This happens all the time on my tests with First Response. It gives false hope and is incredibly misleading. Your tests used to be accurate with no trace of a second line if they were negative. I believe you do this to mislead customers so they will buy more of your dodgy tests. FIX YOUR TESTS.
When i usually use these tests first of all liquid comes over the whole result window then a line popped up that is control line. but this time no liquid nd a line popped up immediatly. are the tests defective?
I’m beginning to notice some symptoms like missed period, mild cramps, nausea, tiredness. I took a first response test and to my surprise a light pink line showed up. Seeming though I’m only 16 I want some advice before telling my mum and causing myself some trouble. I’ve read many have had trouble with False positives so has anyone had any accurate results from this first response test?
First response is my usual go to, though lately l have had a lot of evap lines, if its clearly pink odds are you are pregnant.
l googled indent and evap lines pics for first response l found the pics accurate for what my evaps and indents looked like.
Clear as day pink (it doesnt have to match the control line) most of the time means pregnant.
Thats how it was with my pregnancies.
Good luck, l hope all goes well.
I’ve seen and researched the difference in lines and it isn’t a faint line it’s just really light pink and definitely isn’t an indent or evaporation. So I can’t help but assume it’s a positive result. I’m going to buy a few different branded tests tomorrow. I took the first response during the day and had already drank loads hence why i think not much hcg was detected. Very scary situation but I hope for the best x
