Can you reuse a pregnancy test? adult content

Ok, this may sound silly but I woke up yesterday am and took a pregnancy test bc it was the day I was I suppose to start my period. However, didnt get much urine on test. But I could tell I got some on but didnt do anything to make the test work. So I waited about 5-10 mins and peed in a sterile cup and dipped it in bc that was my last test. It can back negative. Should I trust the results or take another bc I still haven't started. It's been 5 months since we have been trying and I guess I just want advice before I go and waste money on more tests. Thanks.

  • NO, you can NOT re-use a pregnancy test. If you don't want to buy the expensive ones then pick some up at the dollar store.

  • Did you read the instructions on the box? No you cannot "reuse" a pregnancy test. After the 5-10 minute window it becomes ineffective anyways. (Even if you just put water on it).
    They cost $1 at the dollar store.

  • You can order pregnancy tests by the case on Ebay, seriously.

  • No you can't. You'll need to get another one. Dollar store sells them and some clinics will test for free.
