How accurate are the hpt from the dollar store?

AF has been MIA I used the ovulation calculator and on my days of ovulation we had sex with pillows under my hips I'm sleepy,moody,boobs are not sore but kind of tender and so i went down to the dollar store and got a test that read a negative result ...............could that have been a false negative......not to mention my appetite has gone MIA along with AF.........

  • could have been, but your symptoms could also be AF on her way...

    they are usually pretty acurate, but it may be too soon

    depends on how late you are, 1 or 2 days- its probably AF on the way, a week or two your probably preggo. ?

  • They are accurate because every test I took said negative and sure enough, I wasn't pregnant lol.

  • They have always been accurate for me. How many days since you ovulated? Or how late are you? You still could be, it just might not be showing up yet.

  • They are accurate. I got a positive result when I got pregnant with my daughter (I wasn't even a week late at the time) and I got a negative result when I wasn't pregnant. =) Good luck!
