  • It does not matter the brand. It your period is late, and you took a test & received a negative result, you are more than likely not pregnant. Test again in a few days to make sure.

  • it shouldnt matter the brand but I have 2 friends that tested neg on cheap-o ones. I asked the pharmacists when I went to get one and without hesitation was told EPT. Take another April 25th. Tests, even cheapies, are expensive. Wait til you're a month late or 6 weeks.

  • Look for a number on the back of the box. The more sensitive tests (20 or 25) or more sensitive because they take less hormone to turn positive. I have found them at the Dollar Store!

  • Brands don't generally matter. But I agree with the others that if you really want to know, just pop into the clinic. I don't usually tell people I'm pregnant until it is confirmed by the doctor, just in case.

  • i took two tests and they said negative then i took a blood tet at that was positive those two tests were false negatives

  • my friend took a test from dollar store, negative, took 2 more tests from ept, negative..then took one more ept test a couple days later and finally got a positive...and she started taking tests when her period was a week late...i think brand does matter when you dont test first thing in the morning and if you havent technically missed your period yet
