Like the pregnancy tests you’ll find in the grocery or drug store, dollar store pregnancy tests measure the hCG levels in your urine to determine whether you’re pregnant. Specific directions will. The answer is yes. Yes, they are.

The Food and Drug Administration regulates home pregnancy tests, meaning if it’s sold in the U.S, it is the real deal. “I would only caution that it needs to be. Well, the FDA regulates pregnancy tests, and requires their makers to show that they are effective. So if it’s sold legally in the US, it’s legit.

Cheaper pregnancy tests may. The dollar store tests will be basic and simple for a buck, while a name-brand tests could be upwards of $15 each. Keep in mind that each FDA approved or Health Canada approved test, despite the high or low cost, will accurately detect pregnancy.

“For the average woman, dollar store tests are fine and just as accurate as name-brand tests,” she says. But they do require patience, which she acknowledges can be in short supply when you’re trying to get pregnant. “You need to wait until the date of your expected period,” says Taylor. The dollar store or dollar tree pregnancy tests claim to be more than 99% accurate.

However, their accuracy depends on multiple factors, such as using the kit properly. As per the US Food and Drug Administration (3), “the accuracy of a pregnancy test depends on how well the instructions to use and interpret the results are followed. A Dollar Store Pregnancy Test is 98% accurate after the day of missed period. Until the day of due period from 4 days before it, the accuracy ranges from 87-94%.

The accuracy of a positive dollar pregnancy test and negative result will vary. A positive test is more likely to be true and negative can be a false test. Using a woman’s urine, the test available at Family Dollar is just as accurate as other tests on the market. A woman will urinate on the test, and it will display one of two signs: +: The “+” sign is displayed when the hormone is detected, and the woman is pregnant. –: The “-“ sign is displayed when a woman is not pregnant.

Cheap pregnancy tests don’t expire faster than expensive ones, but any test that’s past its prime could be more likely to give a false reading. Just rest assured that whether you spend $5 or $25 on a pregnancy test, your results will still be equally accurate, and you’ll still need to confirm a positive reading with your doctor (congratulations!). Walmart clear blue digital pregnancy test is the only pregnancy test that confirms whether you are pregnant and also tells you for how long have you been pregnant. The 88 cents Walmart Pregnancy Test is the most debated pregnancy test.

Some women love it to the moon and back, and others can’t stop criticizing it.

Several home pregnancy test kits are available without prescription; they tend to be less accurate than laboratory results from a clinic or doctor’s office.

The ad explained that it was less accurate for negative results; a substantial number of women who got negative results would retest a week later and find that they were, indeed, pregnant.

  • I used Meijer brand digital for my daughter and found out @8ish weeks.

    Then just this morning I just tested positive twice with them again. And I’m 4wks 5day

  • I’d never take another blue dye. I got a strong strong positive. I got my period later. (It wasnt a chemical I took another red dye with the same urine and it was negative)

  • This makes me feel better i keep getting negative with first response but 2 positives with the blue equate dye. I got
    The positives less than 5 mins so now im goung to test again today. Ive been prayomg for 4 years now and had my 2nd miscarriage in July so im really praying its truely anpositive. I feel sick rigjt now. My period is SUPPOSE to be tommpwp. Im praying it doesnt start ❤️

  • It’s too many ppl in these comments that’s pregnant between now n the last 5 months ��. Quarantine done caused another baby boom ��

  • I used dollar store pregnancy test with both my kids. We are waiting to see if I’m pregnant this weekend and the first response was terrible! Did not work gave a ugly faded line then used a digital and it just didnt turn on at all. Another digital that one only showed a clock for 15min.

  • Clear blue i had a negative test then o took the test five days before my expected period and then the clear blue digital i had a positive this was 4 days before my missed period. Then i took FR the next day negative. Then went to the doctor negative but she told me to come back a week later to see if i miss my period

  • This is dumb, they all use a strip to test HCG, you look like you’re around 35 weeks pregnant so your HCG is out the roof. Someone that needs to test for pregnancy would have low HCG. The question should not be if it works but how early it detects.

  • Do you by chance know what it means if the control line is faint, but the test line dark? I got that on my last test, but on my first test they both turned dark after a few hours (took them two weeks apart) please help if you have any idea what it means

  • Has anyone ever used the wegmans digital pregnancy test and got a weird open book on the screen instead of a reading? Wth does that mean

  • First response was negative 9dpo but my dollar store test was positive and increased the darkness of the test daily until I got a beta test and even past that. First Response didnt show positive until 12dpo and it was a very very faint line. I was disappointing over the money i spent to find out early when I didnt find out early on those test but on the cheaper test that do not even claim that they will give you results early. GO figure. THe dollar store test said sensitivity starting at 25iu but my blood test confirmed a positive at 4.2IU and increasing. The clear blue said also 25iu but according to the blood test it was not positive until I was over 64IU same with the FIrst Response, got a very very faint line at about 25iu. It was a silvery line and could have been mistaken for a evap but i didnt know evaps existed back then. On the Fact plus it showed negative for over 2 weeks when I swore I was pregnant. I broke up with my boyfriend but told him I thought i was pregnant but took a test (sensitive at 100IU) and it came back negative. 2 weeks later his psych doctor recommended I take another test so there were two in the box, the first one had NOT Even a faint line the second one came out a faint pink line making the plus sign. SO finally had results that we were in fact pregnant. WE had our dd and I was over 28dpo before the test showed positive so 14 days past my missed period.

  • first response I took when I was 5 days late and the line came out very bright making it seem like im far in knowing that I didn’t feel pregnant �� If you don’t believe you are pregnant or don’t believe the test im getting a blood test to be double sure lol

  • A dollar store one and a life brand one (cheap) both gave me faint positives. the clear blue digital said “not pregnant”. Due in October ��‍♀️

  • I missed my period in October I took 3 pregnancy test and they all came back positive and in November I got my period is it possible to get 3 false positives

  • I’m currently out of town and am 2 days late. I took a test this morning clear blue and it was positive and then I took a dollar tree one a couple hours later and it came u negative? I’m going to go to the health department when I return to confirm but I’m confused and going crazy. Any answers or advice?

  • LMAO I was looking up videos on these pregnancy tests to see if they worked or not, went out & got one to test it out & also ‘cause you know ���� now your video pops up. Such a coincidence & yes they do work in case you’re not tryna’ splurge. ��

  • It gives me a bit of hope that you got negatives until 13 DPO with the FR. I’m 12 DPO right now, was expecting AF, hasn’t come. But I got a negative on FRER. I used target brand, and swear there a faint line that was blue, not white or gray, but could be evap anyway because I saw the same sort of line a couple days ago and today’s wasn’t any darker. But it uses blue dye and everyone else tells me blue dye is so unreliable and more often has evap lines or the appearance of a false positive. I’ll just have to wait another day or two and see if AF appears.

  • I strongly feel like I’m pregnant I have so many symptoms and I start my period in 5 days and I took a digital test and it says negative but I’m admit it’s wrong

  • First of all clear blue works very gooood I used that and it popes up clear and dark u didn’t use enough pee on the stick that’s why it’s moving hella slow

  • The dollar tree one told me I wasn’t pregnant

    I took the first response the next day and that’s how I found out I was pregnant.

    But I do hear that the dollar tree ones do the trick.

  • Honestly when I’m at home I didn’t wash my hands all the time when I went P but now I do because it covered but before no I didn’t

  • I have PCOS but it hasn’t “acted up” since before having my first child. I missed this period but it’s only been 3 days since the pastiest day it should have come. I’m very anxious to know if I’m pregnant now but I think it’s too early to tell still I found out at 8 weeks with my first and that’s when it starts to surge. It’s kind of terrifying to not know but want to know. Before I had no idea why I was sick but felt different and a friend said take a test and I was shocked. This time I might have to wait to know or it will be the first time I miss a period because of PCOS after baby #1 Which sucks

  • I’ve used many first response tests. I’ve had 4 pregnancies, the first response tests have ALWAYS been accurate for me. First response is the best in my opinion.

  • Just so everyone knows, First Response’s accuracy is over 99% accurate ON the day of your missed period not to be confused with being that accurate 6 days before your missed period. If you read the actual accuracy results for the test it’s only 76% accurate 5 days before your missed period, they don’t even advertise the accuracy for 6 days before and I hate that it’s worded in such a deceptive way on the box, but they obviously want to profit on influencing women to test way too early.

  • I work at a dollar tree and I’ve always wondered if these tests are actually good. This is my first video on my spree to see if they are accurate. Love love love this video. You are gonna be a great mama. You have such a soothing voice.

  • The digitals are far less sensitive than the regular tests. Blue dyes are known for evaps and dye runs. Get the dollar store tests.
