Default cheap fertility tests, Dollar Tree Brand YUCK

I suggested to my friend to use a Dollar Tree fertility test. I looked online and it claims to measure 20.

She used a clear blue easy, got a positive right away. The next day her doctor confirmed with a blood test reading of 38. She was worried about losing the baby because of bleeding, so she took a Dollar Tree test (on my suggestion because of the price savings and she was having another blood test the following day), and the results showed a total negative. The next days blood work showed a lvl of 200.

I guess in some cases they really don't work so great.

I had always wondered about those! Our dollar store couldn't stock them fast enough. I sure hope they didn't disappoint too many people!!

I found that they worked, but they were not that sensitive. I didn't get a positive on one until an EPT test was very positive, therefore over 50 units of hcg.
