  • I had a postivie pregnancy test at home and then went to the health dept to get proof. At the HD they told me it was negative and I knew it was because they were using a cheap test. I went to a different Doctors Office and they got a positive right away. I would say that it is just the kind of test they are using. The good ones detect pregnancy hormone long before the cheaper ones do. Best of Luck.

  • We've always gotten blood tests for determining pregnancy. Kind of irrefutable that way.

  • it doesnt matter where or how cheap the test is . i did dollar tests and they were positive with my 3 pregnancies although with this 3rd pregnancy the second line cameout really light with no color what so ever. but either way if you took the dollar test a little too soon it may give you a false negative even if it was an expensive test your HCG levels might be too low to be able to detect it on any test cheap or expensive. either way go to your dr./o.b. get a urine and ask for a blood test to be more accurate. good luck

  • Perhaps the tests were expired. It's not like they check the dates on their stuff. At least not where I live. LOL ALWAYS check expiration dates before purchasing. And just my opinon here...all tests are NOT created equal. If it's cheap you get what you pay for KWIM??
