My period was really late in September so I got a pregnancy test and opted for the generic brand, but there was two in the box. I took one and it came up negative, and my period came a few days later- normal. In october, however...my period was late again (I hadn't had sex since before my last period) so I took the second test, negative. But then my "period" came and it was insanely light and only like 24hrs, really (usually it's 2-3 days with day 1 being the heaviest- sry if tmi!).
So anyways, now I feel like I'm having some of the same symptoms of when I was pregnant last time and I'm paranoid that I might be pregnant but it didn't show since it was the Rite Aid brand. Does anyone know if it matters?? (I know for A LOT of stuff, generic brands are the exact same as the name brand..)

Yes...generic HPTs are just as accurate as the NORMAL name brand HPT. The only HPT that would work better than any other HPT is an early detection HPT. If you keep getting negatives and have NOT had sex in the last month and STILL get a negative, I would suggest that you see a doctor. The symptoms that you are expierenceing could be the sign of something OTHER than pregnancy...such as PID or another infection of sorts.

If you haven't had sex in a month, the light bleeding was not implantation bleeding.
