  • I have taken a dollar general test that was the same brand, and yes it was right my son is 18 months old now. They work just as well as any exoensive tests. but you should always get a test from a doctor to make sure.

  • If the tests found hCG...CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Call your doctor for a blood test if you're not sure, but make sure you call them to schedule your first appointment right away!

  • I just found out that I was pregnant and my first positive was on a Dollar Store pregnancy test that I took 5 days before I was suppose to get my period which was last Wednesday ( Nov. 12) I went that same day for and HCG blood test and it came back at 22., I have had and additional two my HCG blood test and they were 72 days later and 254 three days later. I would have to say you are pregnant.

  • all pregnancy tests that use urine are the same! even the ones in your drs office. when i got a pos at home test w/my 2nd pregnancy, i went to the drs to double check it, but they wouldn't give me a test. they said "the ones they use are the same as the ones i can buy at the dollar store." that's a quote. =) so CONGRATS!!!! ♥

    in response to kat247, you probably mis-tested w/the first test. didn't leave it in the pee for a full 5 seconds, or left it in longer than 5 secs, didn't keep it flat for the full 3 mins afterwards, etc. false negs are common, false positives aren't! the test HAS to detect 20-25 mIU/ml of hcg to give you that positive.
