Why don’t people just get the digital pregnancy test?

Anonymous

Just out of curiosity... why don’t people just buy digital pregnancy tests over the ones with the lines? I’ve just seen a lot of posts of people asking about faint lines and just wondered why people buy those sticks when we have digital pregnancy tests where it’s a clear answer? Can’t be price since I’ve seen some digital ones that are cheaper than the dyes...

    The digital ones are just reading the lines for you. So if it is faint they say no

    a lot of digital ones require higher hCG for it to read positive. most people do the line tests because 1. they are able to tell somewhat earlier and 2. it’s generally cheaper (at least where i live). when i found out i was pregnant i did a digital one first and it came out negative, i also had a line one and it came out positive clear as day.
