You should really order Internet cheapies...they work great and are WAY cheaper than $tree. Smile

I second Christina- OPKs on the internet are wonderful! I got 50 for $10 including shipping.

Also- beware the dollar tree pregnancy tests. They are not as sensitive as FRER and sometimes give evap lines that are pretty nasty (even with a little pink). They do work good "just to see" later in the 2w.w. without wasting an expensive FRER.

See ive never had any probs with them giving me evaps before. I just make sure that I dont look after the 3 or 5 min time frame like some people. The OPKs have always worked well for me! I ordered some internet cheapies before and they SUCKED! I wont use them again!

I

I've never bought a preg test though, because I'm kind of embarassed to buy them, so if i DO buy them then I'd just go to a place with U-scan and get like a FRER or a clear blue digi...

I second the internet cheapies! Then I realllly don't feel bad peeing on them, because i only wasted a few cents!!!!

But I definately agree, if you're gonna go buy sticks to pee on, you might as well satisfy your urge with a dollar tree one then an 8 dollar test!!

Yea I dont remember the site I got the internet cheapies from but I was pregnant and it kept giving me negative results. I was NOT happy! I called them and they refused to give me a refund as well. What site do you all use?

I USED to use saveontests.com but this time around I went with Amazons wondo..something that reminded me of "wonderful"

I havent gotten to try them out yet, but i've heard good things!!

Also, i like how the opk test package and the hpt package are different colors (pink and.. blue.. or green?) makes it easier to tell them apart hehe..

PLUS.. they're cheapppp!! SO you could pee on a ton each cycle and not feel guilty!!

I got the 50 opks +20 htps for.. 13something/free shipping

+ if you have swagbucks then you could get it for freeee like me!!!

I use the wondfo OPKs from Amazon. Work great. The pg tests suck though.

I LOVEEEE $tree HPT's and OPK's Biggrin Never had a problem with them! The 'Baby test' brand is my fav because they are super sensitive (:

Never bought OPKs or HPTs offline before since I dont have a credit card but I have heard great things about them (:

Our Dollarstore here in Canada just started carrying OPKS and I totally freaked out the first time I saw them. SO was in the store with me and I screamed and he's like, "What's wrong"? I was jumping up and down saying, "OMG, they have OPKS, we're in trouble now"!!
I've never had problems with the OPKs or the PG tests from the dollarstore but I always double check with a FRER if I happen to get a BFP on a $1 pg test.

Even the ones that advertise that they are more sensitve are not as sensitive as an FRER. Also, some of them (the early prengnacy tests) can give evaps that make obsessers like me think there may be something there even if it isn't. They aren't bad if you are looking for something to pee on but if you want a reliable answer with no doubt I think the FRER is the way to go. I still use the IC's but I can't help but wonder in the back of my head if the result is a real negative or not because it isn't as sensitve. The ones I got (wondfo) said they are "most accurate" the day after your missed period. I can't wait that long so it makes me wonder if I am getting false negs or not.

I did find out I was pg with Nicholas at 11dpo with a dollar tree test. I took a $ tree test at 9dpo and thought I saw something but dismissed it as an evap. I should have tested with an FRER looking back on it.

Do you know I just read the box on the dollar tree opk and it said that if there is any test line that you are having a LH surge! That is such a lie!! It says color intensity may vary. So some poor women who have no idea about opks will get a light line and think that they are getting close to ovulating! They should really put a better explanation on there!

I was wondering why the dollar store OPKs said that

Ohh! I'll keep this in mind!!
I like just to pee on stuff in general.. well sticks :)... and force myself to not use a FRER or anything from the store until after a missed period.

My friend got a neg FRER and the next day just peed on a target brand for the fun of it and got a + and I was kinda suprised because it was target... However I read that IC test makers sell to store brands, so like target and whatever other store brands use the same one, which can be more reliable than an expensive brand??

I forgot where I saw that, maybe peeonsticks.com? Its funny how much research goes into pee sticks!!

Oh yeah, I was going to add..

I always want to find out ASAP (like 8dpo) but then I think it'd be kind of cool if I didnt find out until late, just because then I'd be that much farther along.. because the first weeks go so slow!!!
So instead of finding out before 4 weeks I'd already be like 5 or 6!!!... hehe
