anyone taken a dollar store preg test and it come out neg a few days before you expect your cycle - but have been having all the signs point to you being pregnant?

Have been having swollen, tender and I mean they HURT to even hug someone, mood swings, frequent trips to the bathroom, bloating, nausea and really just feel pregnant. Believe me you would think I would know since this is the 6th time for me. Last ept I took was 4 years ago, after I was 15 days late at the ob/gyn office. This time I am expected to start on 5/1 and it said neg - but I feel awful!!! Please any insight would be helpful

  • Nope, I've taken many dollar store tests and they were always right, even when I thought I had the symptoms of pregnancy, they were negative, and I wasn't pregnant.

  • I never get them from the dollar store. I always buy First Response because they gave me accurate results more then 1 week before my missed period with both my pregnancies.

  • NOPE. The dollar general pregnancy tests was the ONLY ones to actually say positive when I was prego. The other ones from wally world and kmart said negative.

  • yes, but I have also taken other tests and they have come out negative too. I would wait till the day you miss your period or the day after. They really work I have used them for my last 2 pregnancy's

  • Yes, I took one the first day of my missed period and it was negative...then when I took a wal-mart brand a couple days later when I still hadn't started, it was positive and I was pregnant. I would give it a few more days and test again.

  • The dollar store tests are the same thing as the other tests. They are all testing for HCG. I took 3 and they all came back positive . . . I now have a beautiful daughter!
