  • Yes - they tell you if you're pregnant or not. I never understood paying more for something that you're going to pee on. =)

  • Pretty much yes. They either detect hcg, or they don't. The dollar store ones are good, they are sensitive as 1st response detecting as low as 10 whatever the unit of measurement is for hcg.
