Anyone have any information about the sensitivity of dollar tree tests??


Okay, so i can not wait a minute longer. I scrapped up a few $ so i am going to the dollar tree when my fiance gets back. I just do not know about the sensitivity of these things... anyone know from personal experience??

I had a faint positive at 15 miu (I know because Dr. confirmed it with blood work). I don't think they are all consistent, but they are pretty sensitive. I had stronger lines with FRER though.

I used these for my last pregnancy. Worked great!

Manufacturer says 25mIU. I wouldn't count on it detecting less, but it might! Good luck!

I took over 40 tests the cycle I fell pregnant (paranoid because I had had previous chemicals). I got my first positive at 9dpo with frer, equate, and a clearblue digital. The lines kept getting darker by the day on those brands, but still no line on the dollar tree. It was like 3 or 4 days after my positive on the other brands before the dollar tree showed up with a real positive. I thought I saw "something" on the test before that but no where near like on the frer or equate, and i usually saw "something" on the dollar tree tests even months I was not pregnant. BUT on the other hand I have heard other people say they love these tests, so maybe it just varies by the batch or something.

They are pretty sensitive, but the evaps on their tests are horrible. They are the only tests I've ever gotten evaps on. But as long as you look closely for color and watch for the line withing the time limit, you should be ok

Actually, I would almost put money on the fact that I think I've seen evaps on them within the time frame.

Well yeah actually then too, lol I didnt want to discourage anyone from using then though. As long as you look really(really really) close for color in the line it "should" be ok, lol. I probably should have been clear. Not gonna lie though, I hate using those for that reason.

Thank you all for your comments, i did take one and got what looks like an evap line. It looks like it has color but not sure if it showed up within 10 mins or not. i know i saw "something" by 5 mins but did not pay that close attention. will be testing again in the am.
