  • yes they work but they do require a higher amount of HGC than other EPT's. so you may need to wait longer to get a pos.

  • I took a dollar general pregnancy test and I believe they are made by the same company, but my was accurate at 3 weeks and 4 days. I got a clear positive when I took the test, but it did take a little longer for it to show up.
    Oh, I did take a Dollar tree test after I found out and I think the dye in those test are lighter than the DG test.
    I would say test! Good luck!!

  • Check out http://www.peeonastick.com/hpts.html. Dollar Tree tests are actually more accurate and require less HCG to get a positive result than a lot of regular tests. The dye can be a little lighter or take a bit longer to show up, but I used them for all 3 of my pregnancies and got a positive result within one minute (at 5 or 6 weeks pregnant).

  • I used them for both my pregnancies and anytime I wondered in the past and always has clear results. Dollar General used to have some for like $3 too that worked well.

  • They sure do work! i am pregnant now and that is how I found out! Just make sure the expiration is still valid. I took it as soon as the first day I missed my period with a postive result!
