How Sensitive ARe Those Cheap PG Tests??

Was just wondering..I bought a few of those , but havent tried them yet..

how soon can you get a + with them...do you have to actually be late?? I can usually use those expensive first response ones and get + before my period is even due..

Thanks!

Some of them are listed on the chart at http://peeonastick.com. I'd recommend checking there.

I've used Dollar Store tests and they've worked really well. They'd even give me a darker line than the name brand test I was also using. It's been a while now, and I actually don't remember how early you can test with them - sorry.

Very sensitive!
Chech it out here, it goes through the major brands and even does the dollar general ones that I used to tell me that I was pregnant with DS. I tested on the day AF was due and got a BFP!

Dollar Tree tests are quite sensitive (as shown on the above-mentioned chart).

Is there a specific brand of cheap pg tests you're interested in?

The cheapo ones are supposed to be pretty sensitive. Picking them up as early or earlier than any other OTC ones on the market. I had the WORST time with first response and would personally never use them again, LOL. I like my $ tree ones, LOL. I think my ICs were positive maybe a little before or at the same time as my $tree ones - so maybe 11 or 12 dpo, but that was just in my case.

I like the $1 Tree tests better than FRER or EPT. I used to be a poas-aholic and I'd go buy $1 Tree before anything else. It'd be virtually impossible for me to get pg now, so I'm not longer a poas-aholic.
