I used Dollar Tree pregnancy tests with all 3 of my pregnancies and they are accurate. Before, I also took the early response tests and they came back negative (before and after a missed period).

They are generally pretty accurate. However, have you seen a doctor? When I was pregnant with my first child, I had four tests come up negative. But when I went to the doctor, they drew blood (since I had already taken so many pee tests). The test came back positive! To this day, I'm not sure when I actually got pregnant. But it HAD to have gotten pregnant that same week I went to the doctor, based on when my son was born!

I use the tests from Dollar Tree and they are accurate! I tested positive on the $ test and then went and bought an expensive First Response Early Result and used the same urine sample and the $ test positive line was way darker and easier to read than the FRER!! I had to squint to see the faint faint line on the First Response. Now I only buy the $ Tree tests or a expensive digital test.

Yes, they are the same. The reason they're a dollar, is because they don't carry a fancy name on the box nor do they have a fancy casing around the testing strips like many others do. They work just the same. :) I would suggest making an appointment if you skip your upcoming cycle again.

I took the dollar tree prego test and it was positive. Then a few days later i went to a pregnancy resource center to get a test and it came back positive. So i believe in dollar store tests. That is how i found out i was pregnant with both pregnancies.

I got my test from Dollar Tree for exactly ONE dollar and it was accurate. When I went to the Health Dept for reassurance, the test they used looked IDENTICAL to the one I had purchased the day before.

Our $1 stores don't sell pregnancy tests.... they sell very thin tissues and food from brands no one has ever heard of ! When I was pregnant I bought a value pack from the grocery store. I knew if it was positive I would want to take a second one to be sure, and my partner would want to see a fresh one when I told him !!! The value pack was $16 for 3.

When I got the "I might be pregnant thought" with my last child I was in a Dollar General and was amazed that they had $1 tests after I had always spent $10 or more so I bought a few. When I took it...it lit up positive like a Vegas sign. I have also taken them and gotten negative results when I wasn't pregnant. So, in my experience they are accurate.

In england we have a pound shop and my sister in law used those and was accurate, (she was pregnant). If you can, do another one next week, if it's still negative and you haven't had a period go and see your health proff. Good luck. :)
