Is first morning urine esential?

I was looking at some of the early detection preg. tests, and they have used their 'first' morning urine. Is this essential in possibly detecting the pregnancy hormone before your period is due?

  • Yes! it has the most hormone in it. The earlier your due for your period, the less of that hormone your gonna have. So if you test early, you need to do first morning. Now if your past due, you COULD use any time pee, but if you want the best answer-do it first thing in the morning!! :) It sucks to wait until then sometimes tho-trust me i've been there-but if you don't want to constatnly wanna be buying tests, you'll wait! haha

  • because you haven't peed all night while sleeping, there's more of a concentration of the hormone in the first morning's urine than if you were to say drink a bunch then pee - too diluted from all the drink.

  • yes, its the most consatrated, but if your late it prob shouldn't matter

  • So silly of me! I just read the directions!!!!! I am supposed to use first morning urine NOT mid day! DUH! I just wasted $13.00 on an early detection digital test! Oh well. Will try using the cheap dollar store one in the morning :)

  • I don't think its necessarily essential.... you're just more likely to have a higher concentration of HcG in your urine first thing in the morning

  • I used my mid day pee 3 days before period was due and tested positive with an EPT brand test.

  • Didn't take one yet....I was probably two days too soon to even be trying to take a test. According to my length of cycle, I shouldn't even test until today (which I didn't). I am just going to be patient and wait to see if I have a period this Friday.
