Dollar Tree Pregnancy Test - False Pos./Evap Line?

I am sorry to ask this question because I am sure has been asked before... Have those of you who have used Dollar Tree pregnancy test ever had issues with false positives or evap lines? My cycles have been about 32 - 36 days since I had my DD. I am currently on CD42, so I figured I might should take a test. I picked up two yesterday afternoon and took one when I got home. The line took until right about the 10 minutes to finally show, and it was very light when it did. I can see it without squinting, but it is there. I took a picture to post, but you can't even see it in the picture. My husband was able to see it though, so I know I am not just making myself see things. I decided to take another this morning with FMU and I swear the line is even fainter. However, I can still see a very faint, light line. Anyone else have these issues with these test? I am thinking I need to go pick up some better, brand name test today, but I hated to spend the money on them! I would really like to know if I am REALLY pregnant though or if I am just having a wacky cycle.

Here is the picture of the test:


I am not sure why I am posting it as I can't even catch a glimpse of a line!

I had a problem with a cheap $1 test giving me a false (-) with an ectopic pregnancy and had really bad consequences because of it but any other test I purchased from my local $1 store were fine (the one with the false (-) was a different brand test than ones at the $1 store. I would say that you are pregnant but I'd get a better test just so you know for sure (that would make me crazy getting a line that took so long!).

Re: Dollar Tree Pregnancy Test - False Pos./Evap Line?

I've used those tests a ton. When I was ttc my first they were the "go to" test kind of like equate is now. Anyways, I buy them because then I don't feel guilty using them. I probably used around 15 of them this time. They were bone white when negative. I never saw an evap line. I could kind of tell where the test line would be if I took it apart and held it up to the light, but it was totally colorless. When I got my bfp, it took a long time to show up. Probably 5 minutes or so? I was really surprised when it finally did show up. Since you have to pee in a cup, I still had the pee and did a 2nd one, and same thing. So I went out and bought a frer and it came up with a light positive too!

I can totally see the line in your picture though. So I'm going to go out on a limb and say you're pregnant.

Here is my picture for reference. I was already 4 days late for AF when I got these by the way. I got them on a Sat, and had tested the Wed before with a completely negative result. I think mine are even fainter than yours!

I took 2 of the dollar tree tests and there was no doubt I was pregnant. As soon as the pee starting go up the stick the "T" line showed up first then the control line. I didn't believe the first one so a few hours later with forced pee I took another and same thing.

I got it confirmed from the doctor then a few days after I took the Dollar Tree tests and it was positive.

staceyroo 77-

I don't have anymore test now. I took the 2nd Dollar Tree test this am and here it is paired up with the one above.



misskira -

Thank you so much for your post and the pics! That was helpful. I can see your line in the EPFR and the 2nd dollar tree without any problem!

I bought the dollar tree test because I had already bought a two pack from dollar general for $7 then spent another $4 for a Target brand last week. They were all showing up negative! I didn't want to waste even more on the pricey kind when all the cheaper ones are suppose to be just as good. But by that point, I was already late if my cycle was normal, so I was still thinking these would be negative. If I am pregnant, I am either 6 - 10 days late. With both of my other pregnancies, I had positive test before I even missed my period and they always showed up right away.

I normally have the same thing happen for me when pregnancy. I would take the test, and the test line would show up right away as the pee went up the control window. Not with the dollar tree test though... I never did use this brand with either of my two pregnancies though. I have my annual visit scheduled for Oct. 7th, so thinking I will see if they will confirm my pregnancy then. However, I am not sure if they think I am pregnant that they might want me to re-schedule for when I think I am 8 weeks... So aggravating not knowing for certain! :]

Those both look like BFP's to me! I get evaps on DT tests all the time, but they are not that dark.
