    I used the dollar tree ones for both my pregnancy's.. with my dd I tested 4 days before my period was due and got a faint positive.. and tested several times after and all positive.. this time i didnt test till 7 days late and all postive.. So as far as i am concerned, they work just fine!

  • I have PLENTY of experience with HPTs. The dollar store ones do work fine - however they can have evaporation lines a lot. But if it truely is a strong line, then it is a true positive.

    I tested negative with a dollar store HPT on the day my blood beta HCG was 3. The next day the dollar store HPT was positive, as was the EPT brand HPT. Although I did not have another beta HCG test for a week, I was indeed pregnant. So I figure they do pick up very low levels, but not all the way down to 3. My level was probably around a 10-20 the day it turned positive. (I had triplets in there so my levels were rising quickly at the time.)
