Urine pregnancy tests found at your local dollar store are just as good as their pricier counterparts. Many women who are battling infertility can vouch for how expensive the name-brand tests are and that these more affordable tests work just as well. These discount tests may skimp on the fancy packaging and may vary in the level of human chorionic gonadotropin (or hCG, aka the pregnancy hormone) they detect, but other than that there is no difference. Make sure you know how to tell when pregnancy tests are wrong.

My sister swears by the dollar store pregnancy tests. She says they are always correct, but the funny thing is if the test happens to come back positive she then rushes to the store to get a name brand test just to be sure- lol!
You know what’s funny Shelley is that I’ve heard of a lot of women doing that! It always makes me laugh 🙂
I never bought the name brand tests. I still don’t buy a lot of name brand items as they are just as good as name brand. I just made sure to wait two weeks after I thought I had ovulated to take the test to make sure it was accurate.
