Do the Dollar Tree / cheap pregnancy test work just as good?

I am suppose to start my period tomorrow but I am dying to take a test tonight. I am just scared that it will be negative & i will be disappointed. Most of my friends swear by them. i just didn't know if it would detect this early!

  • Yup! They work just the same. Hell, you can buy 4 or 5 of them just to be sure for the same price as 1 at walmart.

  • Yes ma'am! They were my confirmation too. Buy 2 or 3 for a tie breaker! Just remember you may not test positive yet. So if your period doesn't come you'll be back for 3 more tests and probably testing every other day until its positive, lol. At $1 you can do that though.

  • oh hell, i used them too, but be careful and wait for a while for it to actually show up, thats the bad part, i went through alot of them and thought they said negative and then when i bought the walmart ones, it said right away it was positive, when i went to dig the dollar tree ones out of the garbage, they THEN said they were positive, so dont throw them away, let it sit for a couple hours

  • I find it funny that in my Dollar Tree store the pregnancy tests and the condoms are right next to each other
