  • it's not that it's a dollar store test its that it could be too early period to tell if you are pregnant. When you get pregnant it can take up to two or three weeks for your HGC levels to show that you are pregnant. The only way to tell right away is by using a rather expensive test or through blood work. But even then it can take two to three weeks.

  • Even an HPT test from a dollar store works Exactly the same way the $20 dollar test works. It looks for the hormone thats present ONLY when you are preggo. You could be testing too soon. Wait another week and do the test FIRST thing in the morning when you wake up.

  • If you have enough HCG in your system to make you that sick, you probably have enough to get a positive on PG test. Take the test!!

  • Uh, no, my last period was October 5th and my test came up positive Oct. 30th and I only tested b/c I spotted some pink stuff a few days before that.

  • The dollar store tests are identical to the $$$ ones... If you are getting a wrong answer it's not the test, it's just to early for you!
