Guide Review - First Response Digital Pregnancy Test Gold

The First Response Digital Gold Pregnancy test kit is fairly new to the market of pregnancy tests. While it uses first morning urine or other urine, it can be used up to five days before the expected date of your period. The results are digital, given in a clear "yes" or "no."

The packaging of the test itself was easy to handle while performing test; however, a small note, the overcap seemed difficult to get off. This may be because the test does not actually begin until you remove the cap. It definitely takes the 3 minutes for results to show but once they do, they are very clear, no mistaking the result.

I took 4 first response gold tests. they all came back YES+ so when i started getting the lower back pains and and massive cramping, i freaked and went to the er thinking something bad was happeneing to my baby! They did a urine, blood test AND ultrasound...all came back NEGATIVE!!! not only did i waste my money on the most expensive test and get my hopes up to be crushed, i now owe a ton of money to the emergency department for all of the tests because i have no inurance!!!! DO NOT take the gold tests!!!!!! please dont make the same mistake i did!!!
