  • With #2, I took 3 tests. The first one was 2 days after I missed my period, the second was like 3 days after that and the 3rd one was about a week after that. They turned out negative until the third test. I would wait a week or so and I would take it the first time you go to the bathroom (or the longest space between potty-breaks). There weren't enough hormones in my system the first couple of times but after 2 weeks, there were. Good luck!

  • if it took 5 minutes to give you an answer, it may have been done wrong or the stick may have been a dud. Try again. Don't know if you're past due or what. Just wait until you're missed period or up to a week later.

  • Your HCG level doubles every day, so buy another test and take it in a day or two, in the morning. I have 4 kids and can't seem to keep from the bathroom either.... after a while bladders don't let you hold it! Good luck

  • Yes you take another test because that could have been a faulse no. I have had three that was an faluse no. So you should try to take another. The doctor have told me thats it's important to take one at least once a week if you are trying to get pregnate but if your not do so anyway.

  • its WAY too soon for a home test to be positive. just wait until 3 to 5 days AFTER that if you are late!
