well i bought an expinsive one and it said i wasn't even when i was 2 months. and the generic one from the dollar store said i wasn't also. so then i took another one which was a generic one from wal mart. the second line was very faint but it was there. then when i took it out again 2 hrs later to show hubby the second line was actually gone. very strange. but it was correct because i am due this coming friday.lol.
i think they're very accurate as long as you read them within the time frame. after the 15 minutes or so i would often get an evaporation line- however they weren't pink. i got my first very faint +'s at 10dpo with both FRER and $ Tree and the $ Tree ones were darker than the FRER.
I LOVE $$ tree tests! With this pregnancy I got a VERY faint Positive at 8dpo. I took one everyday and they just kept getting darker . My next favorite is Target Brand tests. I got a pretty clear positive at 9dpo.
Another Dollar Store tester. LOL. I only went to the dollar store to get a $1 test to PROVE to my neighbor that I WAS NOT pregnant. Well I'm due in March. Haha.
I also told my best friend about this and she said she got a negative with an EPT or some pricey brand. But she heard the $ store test are more sensitive, so she went and bought one the same day and got a possitive. She is due Jan 1.
Worked for me to with this pregnancy and the one before. This one was pretty faint at 11dpo but no squinting or manipulating the test to see it lol. I only tested because I had gotten up in the night to pee. And surprise suprise it was positive. I love dollar tree tests because I dont have to feel guilty about waisting money lol.
From what I understood false positives are very, very rare on any test including the dollar store ones.
I think the dollar store ones tend to be less sensitive and so have a higher false NEGATIVE rate.
When I was ttc I always bought three tests at a time since I knew I wouldn't be satisfied w/ the results of just one. . . heck it's only 3 dollars!
Hi! I LOVE dollar tree test. In my experience they are sometimes better than the expensive brands and they detect pregnancy earlier than alot of the expensive ones (except FRER). In fact, yesterday I got a bfp on Dollar Tree test!
BTW, yes sometimes the lines are faint. Mine came up right away but was faint *but* Pink and wide!
