Just wondering what everyone's opinions are on the Expensive vs. Cheap pg. tests... with my daughter we bought the really nice digital one! and now... a $20 pg. test isn't exactly "in the budget"... i know you can buy them at like dollar tree ... just wondering if anyone has any opinions on them ranging from $1 to $20



thanks!!

I have used the expensive..and in between but not the cheap ones yet..

The cheap ones from the dollar store work just as good as the expensive ones, they just aren't as fancy!! With my fourth child, it was unexpected, I realized that I hadn't gotten my period, and rushed out to grab a test. It was positive right away, and I was only 3 weeks pregnant! So yes, the cheap tests are fine!!

ive use the expensive ones and at 5weeks got a false negative however 3weeks later (8weeks) got a positive i think it depends on the person as at 5weeks my blood test was also negative

i havn't brought the really cheep ones before, i have always brought the middle of the range ones or went to the health nurse at my local doctors where pregnancy tests are free for any one under 25 and if the test comes back positive, if it comes back negative you have to pay a nurse's fee of like $11

i've never used a cheap one, but i have used the middle and expensive ones, and never had a false anything... i didn't know you could get them at dollar stores! but i don't think i would trust it...

The super cheap ones you can get at dollar stores apparently don't work worth a damn, and you can get false positive/negative with them. I just went with the grocery store brand or whatever was on sale at the pharmacy and those worked fine for me.
