I just took another pregnancy test and it was defective..why?

I just spend 11 dollars on two clear blue easy digital pregnancy tests and took one when I got home and got a book error. What does this mean??

  • I had a defective one once. It just doesn't work, thats why they have that test strip, to if it shows up its working if it doesn't its not working.

  • I took one once and it did that because I laid it down after I peed on it waiting for the results but I was supposed to keep it standing up I guess..

  • one tip for you is to collect the midstream urine in a clean container, trying to pee on the stick in the right way can be tricky ( and messy) collect in a cup dip stick so the window is completely under and take out again.

  • i'd wait til morning to take the other test. It's always better to use first urine of the day so all the hormone is concentrated. Then like another one suggested pee in a cup and dip the test in it. Then follow the directions.

  • Another reason to use a cup. No wasted urine if you don't have to go real bad in the morning.
