Dollar Store Pregnancy Tests

I'm wondering if they are as accurate as they say. Did it work for you? Did you have to be a week or two late?

  • With my first pregnancy, I had 3 negatives from those, but with my second I had an instant positive. Id really say it depends on how far along you are. If its still early, I would advise getting an early response one.

  • i spent like 50 dollars on the "good" tests with my first child, all of which were positive i was just worried they were wrong, just to find out at my doctors appointment that they use the dollar store pregnancy test, and not even the 4 dollar one the 1 dollar one. well i was mad but apparently they're just as good as the expensive ones.
