Have you ever.....

Have you ever peed on a stick and gotten a neg. then used the same test a few days later and got a positive? Let me tell you how crazy I am. My period is due tomorrow....I bought an hpt a few days ago and I couldn't wait. I took it and of course it was negative...too early, so now I am getting ancy again...don't want to take the other test (it was a 2 pack) til my period is late, so I thought about just peeing on the test I took a few days ago (it's still in my bathroom trash can)....do you think it would show positive if I had enough HCG? Has anyone else done this? I know I'm crazy :)

  • :D no you cant reuse a test. time to buy a new one. I learned to be very careful when I use the hpt's. Sometimes you just have to be patient :)

  • I would not recommend using that test again because there are things called phantom lines and evaporation lines that might give you the impression that you are having a positive result.
