  • I have never had a dollar store test have a false result. they have always been right for me. If I wasn't preggo: it was negative, if I was, it was positive :) I don't know how many dpo I was though.

  • yes i had this with my second one i would wait a few days and then test again if it is still faint and no signs of a period then i would get a different test and take it first thing in the morning. good luck i hope you get the results you want

  • thats all i use, i worked at a dr's office before and thats the same type they use too bought in bulk, when we would run out we would go and get more from dollar tree. i never had one fail me yet, and yes all of mine (7 pregnancies) were faint i always tested soon though right as i was due to start. test again in a day or 2, it will get darker.

  • A faint line is still a line : )

  • The dollar store tests are the ones the doctor's offices and hospitals use. The line was always super faint with my pregnancies and also took longer than the test said to show up. Like 5-6 minutes instead of 1-3.

    I think we even threw one away and took another a few days later and almost threw it away until I noticed the slightest line, then I pulled the other one out of the garbage and sure enough, there was a line on that one too.
