    not sure if this is the correct forum to post this but if not, mods can move it.


    is their a significant difference of paying more for a pregnancy test(s)?

    walgreens brand: $7 per test
    longs drug brand: $7 per test
    franchise company brand: $10-12 per test


    does the "you get what you pay for" come into buying preg tests?

    I say yes. I would buy the national brand and take 3 of them.I'm serious. Sometimes they can give a false reading, and taking at least two can insure you a good result.

    Sometimes at planned parenthood they will give you one for free. Check for some brand name packages that have two in a box.

    Different brands can work in different ways.
    Some of them are effective up to 5 days before your period is to come, some you have to wait until AFTER you miss a period.
    I just bought my first pregnancy test in a LONG time :o and I sat in the aisle for quite some time comparing them all. Found a test that was 1/2 the price of EPT and also effective before a missed period.

    honestly, i think they all worked the same. i had a couple scares, and i've bought different brands and they all worked.

    most work the same... you just have to read the box to know what you're buying, ie how soon the test can be used. did you miss a period? do you think you're pregnant, etc. it all depends...

    closing... question's been answered. any other pregnancy issues please see the stickied thread on the vag page or feel free to pm me. :)
