40. The directions on my HPT say "for in vitro use only." What does that mean? Short answer: it just means the test is for external use only. Don't cram it up your hoo-ha. Has nothing to do with in vitro fertilization (IVF.)

Long answer: literally, "in vitro" is Latin for "in glass" (thus "in vitro fertilization" refers to the fact that fertilizaton occurs in a petri dish.) It is the opposite of "in vivo," which means "in the living." If a test were "in vivo" it would mean it should be used internally. Which an HPT definitely should not. (And don't ask me what would happen if you tried. Get that look out of your eye.)
