If it's positive is it real?
Very cheap - two for 89p - I bought to reassure myself that I was just late.
But I have a feeling if they are positive it doesn't matter if it costs 50p or £1- positive is positive.........

A positive is a positive whether cheap or hot aslong as it shows in designated time slot then the result is accurate

I suspected as much. Thanks. I shall save myself the £10 for an expensive test. Will be needing it next year.

A positive result is more accurate than a negative result.

Pregnancy tests are stupidly cheap to produce. Expensive tests are stupidly expensive because of the plastic, packaging and branding. False positives are very rare!
