Bad luck with generic preg tests?

Anyone else have bad luck with cheap-o HPT? I saw a faint line.. but pretty sure it was just the seam line. Happened to me before with other times I was TTC

  • I've always used the dollar stor tests and never really had a problem, I had 1 faint line before but the Dr. said it was because I was only a couple weeks along.

  • Sometimes, I bought one of those $5 ones with 2 tests and both testes were defective....nothing ever showed up at all, even in the control.
