  • Yes. Most of them say that after a few hours it's invalid. With my first son i did keep the test, it was the cheapest one i could find, not even a name brand but it came with a cardboard heart that you could pop out the positive result and keep it. My son turned 10 on saturday and it still reads positive!

  • yes, they only last for so long on some tests.. which is why they list a time limit for liability.
