pregnancy test expiration????

ive been trying to concieve...and im not sure if im peregnant, if i am id be about 5 weeks or so....anyway, i was at the store and there were some preggo tests marked down to a buck (im extremely broke right now) so i bought three. after i got home i took one right away and it came up "not pregnant". later, i looked at one of the boxes and discovered it expired in 2007!!! i didnt even know they could expire. so, are the tests inaccurate? its digital and it worked so what the heck?

  • I think maybe the test are not as sensitve as they would be if it was not expired.I wouldnt take my chances on something as important as this.

  • a friend of mine had some expired pee sticks. well she found out they did not work. well at least not all of them. She had about 8 and i think 3 showed she was pg.
    Go to your local dollar store they sell them there. and good luck.
