31. Can I use an expired test? No. The chemicals used in HPT's deteriorate after awhile and no longer function properly. This can cause a totally defective test (no control line), a false positive, or a false negative. Your best bet is to use a newer one!
I would probably use anyways and then if I saw anything or if they were neg and I was late I would back up with a different test. Good to help with the POAS urge but yeah, just make sure you back them up . I just got a heap of internet cheapies and, to test if they would get false positives or evaps, I peed on one before O to see what it would look like .
Where are you at in your cycle? If it is before O or before any chance of a pos, pee on one now and see what it comes up with. If there's two lines then chuck them.
Thanks for all the responses ladies! I am 5dpo right now and cant wait to know if "round one" did it! LOL I was planning on using the hpts since they say May so we will see what they say! BTW how many dpo is too early to test in ur guys' opinion?
Now would be too early to test . You aren't going to see anything before 7dpo though. I personally try not to test before 10dpo because you are more likely to get a false - before then apparently. I have a billion and one cheapies (also known as 49 cheapies ) so if I ever O I will prob test from 7dpo onwards just for funsies.
