Dollar Tree HPT positive?

I took a test at 4 in the morning the other day and it got a pink line and then there was another pink line hidden in the left corner... could this be a positive or is it just because it is a cheap test? I haven't been able to afford another test and can't get another one for 2 weeks...

  • I took a test from the 99 cent store and came back positive. Doesn't matter to me if it is cheap it still works!! Go to your local clinic. They can test you!

  • I used a dollar store test for both of my pregnancies. They all work the same way. If the second line was in the area for the test line, then you're probably pregnant. If it was way off in the corner by the edge of the test window, then it had nothing to do with test results.

  • The dollar store test are basically the same as the ones the doctors use. So if you have any doubt about it being positive just wait a while and take another one, it's only a dollar and some change!

  • same answer as DragonRiderMD. with those $ store tests you can easily take them apart get that plastic out of the way if it looks weird. but the lines should be in the open area. there should be a control line by the C and a test line by the T if its pos, not one in the T area if its negative.
    if there is one there than congrats! :)

  • I used a dollar store test when I was preg with my son. Showed up positive right away. But some tests are flukes. With my current pregnancy a dollar store test showed negative when in fact I am pregnant!
