Thoughts on the Equate early pregnancy test? Is it accurate/should I trust the results?

I think the generic tests work just as well as the name brand ones. They've been accurate for me as well. The biggest trick is take the test first thing in the morning, then the urine is more concentrated and the results are more accurate .

I've found that generic tests have worked well for me! I would just avoid any that have blue dye as they are known to show more false positives. I would typically use a cheapie test first, and then I'd use a First Response Early Result if I thought I saw a faint line just to double check.

My understanding is that a positive is a positive, UNLESS you're undergoing fertility treatments. However pink dye test are clearer than the blue dye test. I'm no expert, just what I've read on various mom's pages and whatnot!

My fertility doctor told me to not use any kind of generic pregnancy tests. However, I know a few of my friends have used them and they were accurate.

I have used this one several times.  The results were always negative, but that had nothing to do with the test, I really wasn't preggo.  I find it was similar to other big brands.

Honestly, the Equate tests work WAY better than any other tests. I spent so much money on First Response and all of the other tests and they gave me a faint line every time making think I was crazy. After taking the equate one, it showed a dark line pretty immediately. Totally recommend trying this one out before spending money on others.

Yes I believe I have used that one too.  I have used EPT for example before, and didn't notice any differences.  Maybe someone has a preference on the way the results are displayed.

Yes.  Worked for me.  I took one, kind of already knowing that I was pregnant.  The colors changed almost instantly with no guess work.  I didn't even kind of wonder if it was changed or not.  It was clear.

My sister is an MA and she said they all pretty much work the same (as long as you're not in a hurry to get results early). We use the ones from the Dollar Tree.

I always tested twice on all of my pregnancies, but equate I like!

I was going to say whether Equate, First Response, or the ones that are like $1 they seem to all be pretty accurate! I took a couple just to verify myself! Lol

Yes! They are all equally accurate. I used equate. They are all required to have the same accuracy. Even ordering the really cheap ones offline will give you accurate results.

I used the Equate pregnancy test and my results seemed to be accurate, although I did retest to confirm.

Girl yes. They’re all the same. I’ve used the dollar store ones an got the right results.
