Are Dollar Store Pregnancy Tests Accurate?

When you see cheap pregnancy tests on their shelves, can you take the results seriously? Apparently, it’s a yes.

Ladies, how many times have you been in line at the dollar story getting candy to sneak into the movie theater and you notice a pregnancy test sitting on the shelf. If you're not in need of a pregnancy test you still ask yourself "I wonder if that thing actually works?"

Fair question to ask, I mean nothing against the dollar stores of the world but we all expect the quality of things there to be a little sub par at times considering the price, right?

Well, packaging aside, the only part you really need to care about is the little bit of chemical-treated paper that will change color if there is human chorionic gonadotropin(hCG) in your urine.

That paper is fairly cheap to produce, so cheap in fact that the if you want the best deal on pregnancy tests, just look online. You can get minimalist tests (which basically look like what you might get if you ran an index card through a shredder) for next to nothing.

Also to really answer your question on the accuracy just know the FDA regulates pregnancy tests, and requires their makers to show that they are effective.So if it’s sold legally in the US, it’s legit.
