  • As long as the control and test lines are pink, not blue. The blue tests are more prone to errors and evaporation lines.

  • I have used several different brands of pregnancy tests and they all worked. I'm sure different people have had different experiences, you can try it and if it comes up positive take another and if it's positive then make a dr. appt. No sense in spending extra money if you don't have to.

  • I didnt like that brand. I used the dollar store brand and those worked for me just as well as those outrageously expensive ones.

  • equate is just the walmart brand of pregnancy tests and it worked for me even though the line showed up really light for a positive reading so i waited a week just to be sure and it showed up positive then everytime i took them before that they were right too..i say if you wanna check and are trying to be budget conscious it is pretty good but if you have any problems then wait a week and get an ept
