  • Those are the only ones I have tested on. All of mine were accurate. Good Luck and if you don't start in a few days get a blood test done.

  • I already knew I was pregnant but my friends and I wanted me to take one so we could see if they work or not. They are so tiny, I accidentally dropped it in the toilet. So we never found out if they actually work or not.

  • Try testing again in a week or two, It may just be to early still

  • I didn't use a dollar store one, but I did use a Walmart brand one. It ended up being right, but it took FOREVER to develop so I wasn't sure if i could trust it or not and went to the dr to confirm. theirs developed almost instantly.
