If you think you have the signs of a pregnancy most probably the next step is to have a pregnancy test.
Can you reuse a pregnancy test after you already tested yourself with it?
Is it possible?
The answer to this question is a definite no. The pregnancy tests can be used only once. Women should never try to reuse a pregnancy test.
This is because they don’t offer an accurate result for the second time and so they are reliable only the first time.
It is crucial to keep in mind that reliability and accuracy are key features in case of the pregnancy tests. If you don’t have these, you will never be able to trust the results of a test.
How to use the test
Once you are done with the question regarding the pregnancy tests’ reusability you should know how to use a test.
The best thing you could do is to use the morning urine that has the highest concentration of hormones. This way it is easier for the tests to find hCG in it.
HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin that is released by the placenta and it gets into the blood and the urine.
In order to have the test done you just have to place a few drops of urine on the test and wait for a few minutes, according to the indications of the manufacturer.
In case after this waiting time you see two lines on the test, it means that you have a positive result and that you are pregnant. On the other hand, if there is only one line that means a negative result.
Regarding pregnancy tests being reusable you should know that the results are accurate for only a limited period of time, after that it is possible for the lines to fade.
