  • I used a cheap one and was fine, but I say 2 tests are better than 1

  • i used the cheap dollar tree ones they were right... they are just as reliable you just save money... just take another one and if its the same then you know for sure....

  • Wowsers! I had no idea you could get a test that cheap!!! I would say they are just as reliable as the expensive ones....but hmmm if you can't afford another test, can you afford a whole baby!?!?! Hahahahah just kiddin

  • Congratulations, honey.... There's only one thing that can make any pregnancy test positive (even the cheapest ones) and that is Hcg on the strip. There's only one way to get hcg in your pee, and that's by having a little bun growing in the oven! I never understand why people bother to get expensive tests.

  • i took about 3 or 4 dollar test and they all came back that i wasnt preggo, so i went and bought EPT test and all three came back i was, but I think it had to do with the keytones in my urine werent strong enough then, so you really could be preggo!

  • I used nothing but Equate - the cheap Wal-Mart brand, around $2/test. Every one I took was right - if it said -, I really wasn't, if it said +, I definitely was. There's no such thing as a false positive.
