What Every Woman Ought to Know About Dollar Store Pregnancy Tests!!!

I love my local dollar stores. It’s one of my favorite places to shop when I want to reward my sons inexpensively and have fun in the process. My husband often calls me the “queen of the deals” because saving money always gives me an adrenaline rush. So imagine the rush I felt when I discovered that dollar stores now sell pregnancy tests and are giving name-brand competitors a run for their money.
According to the August issue of Ob.Gyn. News (Volume 44, Issue 10, page 10), Dr. Sunaina Sehwani and associates at St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem, PA. tested twenty-seven dollar-store pregnancy tests and compared the results with the early-response name brands that are commonly used in physician and clinic offices. The article states that the dollar store brand was 100% accurate. Can you imagine? These pregnancy tests were also evaluated to determine if they could be easily interpreted and passed with flying colors.

Who makes these kits, you ask? They’re marketed under the names of New Choice, U-Check, and MD Quality all made by a company in Frederick, MD, called SCI International Inc.

Score two points for healthcare reform. When I traveled to Mexico a few years ago, I was amazed that I could purchase a tube of Retin-A for $10.00 (U.S.) and pay close to $100.00 back here in the States. A colleague paid $20.00 for an IUD in Egypt while the U.S. average cost is approximately $300.00. Kudos to SCI International Inc. for having corporate integrity. Essential personal items such as disposable diapers, infant formula, feminine hygiene products, medications (including birth control methods) and pregnancy tests should not bankrupt our bank accounts. Competitive pricing with a reputable product is a win-win experience for everyone.

So, the next time you miss a period, save your money and hit the friendly dollar store and if you see me shopping, don’t forget to wave or say hello.
