  • I always used the walmart brand... but you could try EPT, they say those are the ones for early detection which means if you are late, it'll still pick up the hormones.

  • I would by some at the dollar tree, grab a few since their only $1.00. If it's positive and you want to still make sure go by the brand ones Worked for me.

  • go to walmart and get the value pack (5 tests) with the digital read out, its 15.99 or so, you can take a test now to ease your nerves then in a week take another just to be sure, and pending if you wanna keep them around for the next scare, you could sell them to other people you know having the same issuse, you can either give the rest away or sell em, after i found i was positive i sold the rest (3) and made 20 bucks

  • The cheap ones. I've used both name brand and off brand and in my experience, with three kids, i've never had a problem with the generic ones. I've had more problems with the name brand ones.

  • I'd avoid any kind that has lines that need to appear, go for words instead!

  • First Response really worked for me 5 days before AF due. Early digital tests are great, too. I wasafraid to try the cheaper tests as I tested early. I would love to know if they are accurate before AF due.
