is there really a difference in all the pregnancy test?

i know there are the ones you can test 5 days sooner..and then there is the digital..but is there a difference in them? They all test for the same horomone, right? So would the 5 days sooner one just be stronger? What about the digital..is it super strong..or is it just easier to read...since you dont have to hunt for a line?

  • No, digital is just ea sir to read. It either says pregnant or not pregnant and the other ones you have to look for a line.

  • You could do EPT...its for before a 'missed' period. Blood tests are the MOST accurate. I have done digital and none. Digital is MUCH easier :) Line can normally be 'faint.' Or, you get a defective one like I once did. lol

  • No, there isn't any difference. The $25 EPT test is no different than the $2 Family Dollar test...

  • There are websites that explain the difference in all the pregnancy test and their sensitivities to the hormone. You can google it.

  • They all detect the hormone the same. It's been tested, even the digital have a strip inside, one line no two yes. Generic tests even test before a missed period now. It's all advertising hype. I had a $3 target test tell me before clearblue! lol
