I used Easy at Home hcg strips and got my BFP at 12dpo. I highly recommend them if you like to test frequently!  I think I paid $15 for a 25 or 30 pack.

I’ve used the name brands and the Wondfo ones from Amazon. Same results.

Itsnotme:  I had accurate results with internet cheapies, first response, and clear blue digital. I had a squinter with a cheapie 8dpo, quick tried to squeeze out any urine left after seeing that second line and peed on a clear blue digital and had a very clear “pregnant” result. Used a first reseponse (not the early reader type) and that was positive too on 9dpo (didn’t have one available to use 8dpo). I would just use internet cheapies until you see a posible second line, then reach for the more spendy tests… I don’t even remember what brand of cheapies I had because I had a variety which were all literally the same cheap little pee sticks. They work regardless!

I tested with cheap tests and if I got a squinter used a more expensive test. I don’t think my cheap tests were as sensitive as my first response test. Here’s my BFP for comparison. Both on the same day, cheap one with FMU and first response with no hold. In saying that the cheap ones were definitely worth getting because I went through so many while ttc and good pregnancy tests are expensive and would of sent me broke lol.

Never used a name brand! I got wondfo’s from Amazon. I would have only bought a name brand if coincidentally I got a light positive on my last wondfo and wanted to confirm it without waiting for shipping- But out of the 25 I got I used less than half on one cycle. I actually thought I had ovulated about a week before I actually did, so I started testing too early so I had a handful of bfn’s before my first light positive- when I saw that first one I immediately did a second one just in case it was a faulty strip, and then took a few more over the next few days just to see the line get darker. That was proof enough for me- I did think about getting a digital but honestly didn’t feel the need to see the word “pregnant” when I had so many + test strips already done!

mrsfrendo11:  +1 Those look exactly like mine at about 9dpo. So they both gave me a positive, it was just harder to see in the cheapie. 

I like Wondfo and FRER

I always used the 88c ones from Wal-Mart. Always got right results.

Wondfos all the way! Can’t beat that price and they measure as accurately as the name brand
