  • Dollar store tests work just as well as any other test, but they're not sensitive enough to pick up small amounts of hCG. For early testing, you should really get one of the tests that specifically advertises that you can take it up to 5 days before your missed period; otherwise, you're probably going to get a negative whether you're pregnant or not, and it has nothing to do with it being a cheap test, just that it's not made to detect pregnancy that early.

  • I got a positive on the day I expected my period, using the test from Dollar Tree. There is a website called peeonastick. She explains the differences in the tests' sensitivity.
