Dollar Store or Walmart tests?

Postby heluvsme2 » Sat Jan 28, 2017 8:38 pm

I've been out of the game for a long time, used to use Dollar Store tests once upon a time but hear Walmart has a cheap one. Which one works earlier/better?

I'm not sure about sensitivity, but I got a BFP on the dollar store tests the same day as my frer in 2014. I've been using dollar store tests this time and they haven't given me evaps. The Walmart ones have gotten a very faint line after they dry, but not in the time window. Apparently some people do get evaps on them in the time window, but I haven't.

I don't like both. With the dollar store, I got a dye run that looked almost like a positive. With the Walmart, all of the tests I took got nasty evaps that were super convincing. I had my husband drop his pee on one and he got an evap that I would've considered a faint positive. Basically they're okay, as long as you throw the test away at the 5 minute mark and never look at it again :)
