Well most important is to read the directions . Try to use your first morning urine , it is the strongest . Make sure to check the results in the time given by the instructions and don't go back and look at it later , it may have an evaporation line . You can always take another one if you think you did it wrong or if you think the results are not right


1. Read the instructions before using the test.
2. Make sure the test is not expired.
3. I recommend peeing in a cup and dipping the test in the urine opposed to peeing on the test. I think this helps reduce the chances of an error.
4. Make sure to read the results in the time window outlined in the instructions. Reading the test after this time window can result in a false result.
5. If you are unsure then just take another test!
