Pregnancy tests

My friend just called me and said she thinks she may be pregnant, wants to find out now, only has $2 or $3. Has anyone ever used a test from a dollar store? Are they just as good? I told her I would ask because I would hate to send her all the into town and spend her money if it isn't going to be any good.

  • Yes I did. 8 years ago with my daughter it turned positive asap BUT 3 years ago with my son I took 3 and there was a very very faint line then took an EPT and also a very faint line. Turns out my levels wernt high enough yet when I had taken the tests with my son.

  • I've never used one (I can't find them at my dollar stores! Grr) but I hear of lots of women using them and getting accurate results.

  • I used a cheap test and got results that were accurate I don't think she will have a problem using a dollar store test...

  • Thank you, like I said I would just hate for her to drive all the way into town, spend her money, and use her gas for nothing.
