  • Test on a clear blue that actually says PREGNANT or NOT PREGNANT. enough with the lines. Go first thing in the morning. If you are still unsure, OBGYN's know best.

  • HPT's are not reliable after 10 minutes. SOMETIMES 15 - depending on the brand.
    It's recommended you take HPT's with the first morning urine because it has a more concentrated level of HCG.
    If it was after 10 minutes when you took the second batch of test - it might not be reliable.
    I would take another one in the early morning - and within 10 minutes if it's not Positive, I would wait a few more days.
    GOOD LUCK! Wish you the best.

  • Ok well first of all when u take one you should wait a couple of days to take another one. You really shouldn't take more than one in one day. Second, you should use the first mornings pee because it will have the strongest HCG levels. And lastly, you might be just pregnant enough that it will detect but I would wait like a week take one and if it still comes up negative or positive even, I would maybe go get a blood test done at the doctors. I took one and it was negative and waited a week and it was positive. Good luck!

  • Doctors won't do blood tests unless there is an issue/medical reason to do so! Like if you are pregnant, and they need to test the LEVELS of HCG; they don't do those tests upon request just to see if you are pregnant. Wait a few days, and take another test that is easy to read, and don't read it after 10 minutes becuase it's not accurate. GOOD LUCK!
