Does anyone out there know what is a good brand of pregnancy tests? I have read some reviews on some that are bad...

I don't know too much about hpt (home pregnancy tests), but I have heard quite a few bad things about the equate hpt. I think it sometimes gives false positives (which is the last thing you want to see when you are trying). Hope this helps.

I bought generics from WalGreens for all four of my pregnancies. I got the right results on all 4. And I tested on the first day after I was to start on 2 and the day I should have started on the other 2. I also took a test about a year ago, I was 5 days late on bcp and the test was negative. So I guesst that was a good brand.

There's a website out there somewhere, and of course I don't have any clue what the address is, LOL. You might want to try asking on Expecting to Expect...someone over there is bound to know it!

Personally, I like Confirm or the Walmart brand of Confirm. I've used it all three times--cheap and early detections (9 or 10 dpo with #2 by by 12dpo with the other two).
