Do you think those $1 pregnancy tests are accurate?

I took one on the day of my missed period and it was negative. It has been 3 days now and still no period. I don't want to waste money buying pregnancy tests if I don't have to.

  • They work just as well. Dont get caught up in the brands. Retake the test in a few more days to be sure may have not gotten enough hcg in your urine yet to tell. If you cant wait go to walmart and get one for 8.00. clear blue or something.

  • They didn't work for me. I used so many of them and kept getting negatives, a lady working at the store told me to just go buy a digital test, before I bought another $1 test. I went and got a digital and it was positive.

  • They work for me and as I heard the $1 pregnancy test are the same ones they use at the clinics.
