  • They all work the same as long as its not expired. I used dollar store brand with all of my pregnancies. I dont see wasting money on a digital test or anything.

  • I had a false positive with a Dollar Tree test. I don't trust them anymore. I'd rather just wait longer and test with something else. And yes - it was a false positive. Took a test with the same urine after the + first came up, and it showed negative. I think they're only good when you're TTC and feel the urge to pee on anything.

  • I have used them in the past with great success. They are especially sensitive but they are prone to evap lines so do not read them after 5 minutes because if the line appears after that point- it's not a true positive. sells tests in lots of 25 and 50 dirt cheap. I bought an entire lot of 50 from amazon for like $8- and they work very well! They are so sensitive, they picked up my currently pregnancy at 8dpo!
