I bought some cheap tests on ebay - supposedly early ones. I used them, but also had a spare cb digital & spare predictor in the cupboard - tested on 2 different days, & got negative with the cheapies & positive with the more expensive ones both days - can't tell you if I was testing early, as I hadn't made a note of my last period date!!
Am now 35+5 pg - good job I double checked the results!!
Personally, I don't rate the cheap ones at all - think even the supermarket own ones are way better than the ebay cheapies. I'd go buy a twin pack of CB digital if it was me - I've thrown the cheapies away - won't bother buying them again.
Same with the ov tests - Asda do them at a decent price & I had no probs with them.
Hope that helps

i bought some from the pound shop and they worked,but to make sure i always went and bought a cb or predictor.
i brought 2 from boots for £4.99 and got positive
hi julie, i bought cheapies from the pound shop which didnt work for me but did for a friend, adsas own are good or cb dig. the only problem is with the cb if your sad like me i still have my pee sticks with there lines still clearly visable the cb dig results go off the screen after 24 hours. with my first pregnancy it was 7 weeks to get a BFP, i tested everyweek! i was buying cb dig off ebay, try having a look, sealed packs, in date just that bit cheaper!
good luck hope your preggers!

Hi i bought some cheap ones from the internet and some sainsburys own brand and a got a BFN on the Sainsburys ones until i was 3 days late but a BFP using the cheap ones on the day my period was due. I'm now 15 weeks pregnant.
Good luck Julie x
I used tesco ones for both my boys - they gave me BFP first time.
Interestingly though, last year I had an ectopic pregnancy and although I was late for period- the CB test gave me a neg.
A friend bought round some the of cheapy tests from eBay - and I got a positive and a neg. I ordered some myself, 2 days later I did 4 of them and got BFP!! I took another CB test and it still gave me a neg!!
Pregnancy hormone doesn't rise as high when the pregnancy is ectopic so I was surprised that CB didn't give me a BFP when I first took it!
I now have a stash of the eBay ones in my bathroom just in case - I would trust them to tell me from the day I was due - I personally wouldn't test before then anyway
