How good are Walmart brand pregnancy tests? Has anyone used them early?

Walmart has 2 different kinds. The "early detection" tests (which are steep in price) and then the regular Equate tests. I got the regular tests, even though my period isn't due til Saturday. I've been getting sudden bouts of awful nausea (I don't get sick when my period comes) and coffee has been making me really jittery even though I've been drinking it everyday. Coffee only makes me jittery when I'm pregnant. I couldn't handle coffee with my first pregnancy either.

BUT I've tested 3 times this week, and all are negative. Are their tests accurate?

  • Shelli there is no such thing as a false positive [unless you had just lost a baby or just given birth] your body only produces HCG when you are pregnant.

    To answer your question- I used to cheap equate brand with this pregnancy. I test at 10 days after ovultion & it wasn't first morning urine and I still got a positive.

  • I got a pos at 3 weeks pregnant, a week before my period would have come, with the cheapest walmart test, the equate.

  • the test are very accurate. I used the equate tests on all three of my pregnancies. i found out with the first one when i was 9 weeks, the second when I was 7 weeks and the third when i was 4 weeks. they are accurate. you should wait until after your missed period. be patient.

  • I used a cheap one from the dollar store 2 days before my period and it was positive. Just make sure you are testing first thing in the morning since your urine is most concentrated then. Good luck!

  • I used the walmart test and it worked for me but i was testing every week for 2 months because i skiped a period due to stress and i had about 3 false positives. I know its hard when you wana know right away but dont worry just sit back and relax its only a few days.
