What is the cheapest most reliable test?

Ok so I am 2 weeks late, I have a mirena coil so thought we were safe.

Last 2 days I have had severe nausea and sickness, I thought it was due to the drugs I take for ongoing health problems as that has happened in past but due to being late I am now wondering if I should buy a test.

I have very little money as not been paid yet, which is the cheapest place to buy a pregnancy test that is a reliable result? Never bought a test before so no idea which is best.

Poundland! You won't find anything cheaper than that!

At two weeks late the preggo hormones should be pretty high and be able to be picked up by any test. Poundland are just as reliable as the others.

Good luck, whatever you want the outcome to be.

Ha, I didn't know poundland sold pregnancy tests. Will pop out later to pick one up. Thank you!

I got one from Budgens it was really really cheap sure a couple of £ maybe less. It was the best test I've ever used. you pee into a small cup and put a small stick in. The result was instant. would def use again. I used two blue and one blue digital befroe and much prefer the cheap one. They are underrated.

All the very best

I get these, 15 tests for £2.69. I've always been able to get a positive test by 10/11 DPO, i.e. before period due. I keep a little stash in the bathroom cabinet so I can double check from time to time that the pill is still working (got pg on it last year).

If you are 2 weeks late, any test will bring up a positive if you are pregnant.

Good luck OP

I also vote for Poundland - I used the two in a pack ones (like little thin strips) & results were accurate x

A STD clinic will do it for free (as I imagine will your GP's surgery if you say what yoy say here).

The Poundland ones are sensitive too.
