Question False negative with dollar store test?

OK, I know I posted yesterday about being late, so I will not bore you all with those details again, but today is day #39, last AF was January 6th and so far nothing. My bbs are starting to get soar so I know something is happening, either pgcy or AF is coming.

So has anyone had any problems with the dollar store test or know of anyone who has... or have any experience getting a false negative... I don't know if maybe I ovulated late maybe or maybe hCG levels aren't detectable yet or maybe the pee wasn't strong enough (it wasn't AM pee). I don't know, but it is driving me nutso over here!!

Well it was one from Dollar General... don't know if that helps at all. And of course I had plans on going out and getting a better one, but now it is snowing! GRR!

This one was made by SCI International Inc. Hmm.

Re: False negative with dollar store test?

My tests from the dollar store (dollar tree) have always been accurate either way. I just used one this morning. : )

I hope you get your answer soon! Sometimes the not knowing is the most difficult part!

Re: False negative with dollar store test?

There really is no such thing as a false negative. It just didn't pick up the number of hcg that the test needs (yet).

Dollar store tests seem to be a fave for POAS addicts.

Here is a list of how much each reads.

You might just need a more sensitive test. I don't know about the one you've got, but you probably just need another test.

Re: False negative with dollar store test?

sometimes the $store tests don't have enough dye in them and it makes the lines ridiculously faint.. i've had that issue, but there was generally still a line of some sort .. i've had much better luck with the equate tests from walmart - pretty cheap and a always a dark line
