EPT poll- need to know ASAP..

Hello Ladies- I need to know which Brand of EPT worked the best for you @ predicting your pregnancy early, before a missed period. (ex.3 days) Ive had false negatives in the past testings before my missed period, but really want to test early (anxious to know...)
Thank You!

  • I used first response.. the one that can predict earlier....
    I have some friends who have used the digital ones - they said they worked good as well

  • I used EPT two weeks after a missed period. I got the digital read out and it said pregnant.

  • It will have to do with where your HCG levels are. If they are low all test will not give you a negative reading. Good luck!

  • I used the generic one from the drug store and that was good enough.

  • cheap dollar store tests work just as well for me as the expensive brand.

  • A friend of mine used first response and it faintly said pregnant. She went to the doc the next day and the test said neg. They told her she was having a miscarriage. 8 months later she had a beautiful little girl. So I swear by First response.

  • I disagree about the dollar store ones. I used one and it was negative and later the same day did first response and it was positive.

    Answer by jenae_gist at 2:13 PM on Sep. 23, 2010

  • I agree with the dollar store tests. With my first pregnancy, I used all the expensive tests and all were negative until I was eight weeks pregnant. With my second I used the dollar store tests and it came back positive, I was three weeks.

  • None of them worked early for me. I couldn't get a positive test until at least a day after my missed period.
