HELP! Anyone Use Dollar Tree preg tests?

Hello Ladies,
I am on day 14po, and AF usually arrives on day 12po at the latest, and I have taken two tests (11dpo and today-but not 1st morning sample) using the Dollar Tree brand tests. Both have been negative... has anyone used these tests successfully? Should I just assume I am not preggo or should I try a different brand? I had some strong cramping on 10dpo with one time of light pink spotting that day. Also some lighter cramping on and off since then, but NO AF! It is hard to wait...I think with my other 2 pregnancies I didn't test till around 18 or more dpo. Anyone have some advice/encouragement for me? Or should I just assume I am not pregnant and something else strange is going on? Thank you for your help!!

I used these tests with yds at about the same time after and it worked fine for me. I would say wait a couple days then test again

Ive used these tests before (even though I always seem to go to a name brand to ease my anxiety) and they have always given me the same results as the name brand tests. Im not sure if these are the "early detection" tests (its been a while since Ive used them). If not, I would say either use an early detection test or wait until at least day 17po to be sure.

I used these this past time, just found out last weekend, and they worked just fine. I read online that they use these in the doctors office and pregnancy centers. So i used them and they worked great and very accurate.

I got a BFN at 10DPO and finally a very faint BFPat 15DPO with the Dollar Tree test. They are very accurate but not the best for early detection IMO. GL mama!!!

I don't care for them. With DS2, I was 4 days late and still getting a negative, but got an immediate positive with an Equate. That was 4 years ago, so maybe they are better now?
