When you buy this product, you'll get a high-quality test that matches the sensitivity and accuracy of expensive brands.

What is Family Dollar Pregnancy Test sensitivity?
Regarding pregnancy tests, sensitivity refers to the amount of the hCG pregnancy hormone present in your urine required to make the test show a positive result.
Pregnancy test sensitivity levels for home pregnancy tests range from 20 mIU per ml of urine (the abbreviation mIU stands for milli-International Unit) to 50 mIU or more.
Family Dollar pregnancy test sensitivity is 50 mIU/ml, which is at the upper end of the scale.
You need to know that sensitivity levels for home pregnancy tests range from 20 mIU per ml of urine (the abbreviation mIU stands for milli-International Unit). Family Dollar pregnancy test sensitivity is 50 mIU/ml, which is at the upper end of the scale.
After conception, your hCG levels slowly begin to increase, but soon double every 48 hours. This means that the time between when a 20 mIU/ml test gives you a positive and when the Family Dollar Pregnancy Test gives you a positive is about two days (hCG levels vary among women).
In other words, a test with a lower mIU will give you a positive result up to two days earlier than the Family Dollar test can deliver.
What is an IU?
International Units (IU) is a standard measurement of vitamins, drugs, and supplements. One IU is a quantity of a substance that produces an effect. Therefore, you can't convert IUs into other measurements such as milligrams.
For example, 1000 IU Vitamin A has a different weight than 1000 IU of Vitamin C would have. IU is a measure of potency determined by international committees.
So, the Family Dollar mIU of 50 means that it will detect your urine when it has a concentration of .050 IU of the hCG hormone.

Does the pregnancy test at Family Dollar give early results?
You need to know that the term "early result" with regards to a pregnancy test can cause confusion.
Generally speaking, an "early result" test has the same sensitivity and accuracy ratings as tests that don't make the "early result" claim.
Pregnancy tests can make an "early result" claim because they put a disclosure marked with an asterisk (*) on the product package, usually in fine print.
As is the case with all OTC pregnancy tests, you can test early with the Family Dollar Early Result Pregnancy Test, but you will have less accuracy.
The Family Dollar test has an accuracy rate greater than 99% from the day of your expected period, just like First Response. When you test early, you might get a negative, even if you are pregnant.
Pregnancy Test at Family Dollar: Testing early
Read the claim on the side of the box before using the Family Dollar Pregnancy Test.
** TESTING EARLY: The early result pregnancy test can be used as early as 4 days before you expect your period. That's 5 days sooner than waiting until you miss your period to test. The amount of pregnancy hormone increases rapidly in early pregnancy. In clinical testing with early pregnancy samples, The Early Result Pregnancy Test gave the following results:
# of Days Before the Expected Period % of Samples from Pregnant Women Giving a Positive Result -4 53% -3 74% -2 84% -1 87%
So there you have it. Early Result Pregnancy Tests, including the First Response Pregnancy Test, do not give you any advantage over tests that do not make the spurious "early result" claim. With this in mind, you should repeat your pregnancy test after the first day of your missed period to rule out a Family Dollar Pregnancy Test false negative.
Can I get a false negative on my Family Dollar Pregnancy Test?
Yes. If the level of the hCG pregnancy hormone in your body is not high enough to trigger a positive result, you can expect to get a negative result, even if you are pregnant.
What causes a false positive result?
You can get a Family Dollar Pregnancy Test False positive for various reasons:
- You could have a naturally high hCG level. Hormone levels vary among women, so you might be one of the few females who have a high base level of hCG.
- You might have a medical condition that causes abnormally high levels of the hCG pregnancy hormone.
- Failing to follow your Family Dollar Pregnancy Test instructions can cause your test to show a false positive result. For example, waiting for longer than 10 minutes to read your test can lead to an invalid result.
- A Family Dollar Pregnancy Test evaporation line can occur where your urine has evaporated from the test surface, causing you to misinterpret the line as a positive test result. A positive result line will have a color that you can easily distinguish from a Family Dollar Pregnancy Test evap line.
- Medications you are taking could cause your pregnancy test to erroneously confirm your pregnancy.
- Defective test units are uncommon, but when you have a bad test, it could incorrectly measure the amount of hCG in your urine.
