Dollar pregnancy test

I am 3 days late for my period, I haven't had ANY symptoms, but I decided to take test regardless, I took one last night i did it in a hurry, was negative threw it away, and this morning i decided to take the other one just to make sure, so i took the test, it came out negative, and i just left it my computer i was doing stuff, and maybe 15 mins later i look at it and its positive now.. has this ever happened to anyone, or is it wrong maybe?

  • This is my 3rd pregnancy. I took a dollar test and it was negative, I looked at it the next morning and it was positive. Turns out I was pregnant

  • They are not accurate past 10 minutes
    If it was negative,it still is

  • get one of the digital tests if you question the other test. That way you get a clear pregnant or not pregnant response.

  • It's negative. It should say on the box that the results are not good after a certain time. But, if you are unsure, buy a trusted brand like First Response, test tomorrow morning & follow the directions exactly.

  • No. If you look at the test after the alloted time (most say to check results within 2 minutes) then you are looking at evaporation lines and the test is inaccurate.
    Chances are you are just late. (how have your stress levels been?)
    If you still haven't gotten your period in a week test again and if results are still negative then make an appointment with your doctor.

  • Wait until you are seven days late. Test in the morning. Follow the directions.

  • I have a four year old son who's pregnancy test didn't show positive until a half hour later...which just prompted another test....just test in a day or two and get a digital one...they are easier to read!

  • I would retest just to be sure. The $1 tests work good. It's how I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd!

  • I agree, wait until you are 7 days late. Use first morning urine and retest.
