  • Actually some doctor offices use the cheap tests, or so I'm by some of my friends who work at them. A phamasit actually told me as well.

  • Well, you can buy a lot more of the dollar store (as well as Big Lots and Dollar General) As a mom of 4, my "aim" isn't as good, so the dollar store ones are easier to use for me. I think that you should buy a few of the dollar store ones because once you get a positive you will need to see the dr anyway. Besides, the digital ones are almost the same price as a co-pay to the doctor!

  • They are all the same. If you are pregnant, you will get a line... Good luck! :)
