Now, bear with me here. I personally dealt with a 20 year infertility journey.  Pregnancy’s tests month after month are REALLY expensive.  These test are a buck.  I always had at least 10 on hand at all times, I kid you not.  I felt no guilt using these especially when your hope is up and you find out it is negative. 

At least you didn’t waste $15 dollars just to be disappointed. These aren’t early detection tests, but they do work very well and reliably.  Only catch: keep that expiration date in mind.

Cooking Accessories
