dollar store pregnancy test...

I have noticed a lot of mom's recommend them. Do they detect a lower amount of HCG? Just curious

  • I think it's because of the price. They are just the same as the name brand and a lot cheaper.

  • I recommend them because of the price. I don't think they are any different from the $15 ones! I usually buy about 10 of them at a time. LOL! If I think I am pregnant and it doesn't say positive the first day, I can afford to keep using one every day until my period starts or I get a positive. :D

  • I have heard ONLY good things about them. Personally if I think I might be expecting I'm going to buy a name brand or even a digital one.

  • I just can't type today! Lol. I have always bought the digital tests...they are much easier to read. I want to take a test because even though I miscarried a month ago, I just have way too many symptoms of pregnancy and have this gut feeling. I am just unsure when I'm supposed to start so, that leaves me wondering when can I take a test?
