  • Hey Pink H,

    Have you tried any other brands of HPT or just FR?
    Asda ones are quite sensitive at 15miu. It all sounds very good, maybe you just dont have enough of the hormone to show up on a FR. I know they say they detect it up to 6 days early but im not really convinced they are all that sensitive.
  • hi sorry to g/c but what does 15miu mean? Thanks
  • mIU means "million International Units". It is a standard unit of measure often seen in medical/pharmacological applications. Generally, seeing this in relation to pregnancy tests, it's often something about how much hormone is in a urine or blood sample. Nowadays a urine test can detect hcg when it has reached a level of between 25-50 "parts per million (international units)". Some are even more sensitive at 10/15miu.

    If you think about it like tiny microscopic little drops, then you could think of it as: if the sample taken (or absorbed) equals a million microscopic drops---then some of those drops are hcg and the rest is just regular urine waste.

    So if one says it can detect at 15 and the other says it can detect at 50, then the one that says 15 is much more sensitive and can detect hcg sooner. Hope that makes sense. It's just all about concentration levels of hormones. image
