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.

hmm that's good to know Amy. Really who ever is making these tests needs to check better the lvls they claim to pick up.
