Use Of Stored Urine For A Pregnancy Test?
I want to ask . I put a small amount of water in the morning to be tested during the day * because I was waiting for my husband to come home from work, ask to buy Tespect * Are the results still accurate at the time of the test?
Hello Ennil, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The pregnancy hormone (HCG hormone) which can be detected in urine when pregnancy occurs will not be degraded or destroyed by urine storage. Therefore, you don't need to use fresh urine to do a pregnancy check with a test pack. You can still use the stored urine (up to 24 hours) for this test and the results will still be as accurate as using fresh urine.
However, preferably for hygiene reasons, keep your urine in a clean, tightly closed container / storage area and dispose of the container after you have tested it.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
