Pregnancy test!!

a friend just gave me 2 pregnancy tests and there both expired. if i take them will the result still be as acurate or is it just useless? either way my husband is going to buy one later on this week if i dont get my period. i was just wondeing about the expired pregnancy test. they both say Exp 10/2010. my guess says it wont work but my husband and friend say try it anyway.

  • It will give you a false answer i would wait till your husband goes to buy you a new one i know you anxious to find out lol but i would wait and test with your first urine in the morning .Good Luck.

  • They still work, they just don't detect the hormone as well. They will probably come up looking negative if you don't have a strong enought hormone.

  • I would use them but then I would get one that isn't expired. They are not as accurate once expired.

  • The only thing it can do it probably show a neg when it might be pos. You wont get a false pos.

  • Yeah, worst case scenario is a false negative....I'd still have hubby buy me a new one, but I'd use those, just in case. How late is AF?
