Anyone out there ever reused a negative pregnancy test?

I'm just curious if anyone's ever tried it?

I let one dry out and I've reused it. I'm really waiting for a positive on a new stick and then taking an old negative stick and trying it to see if it will show a positive result.

How long do those chemicals last??? Does the one pee shot really use them all up???

I don't think it would work if it was already used.

It doesn't work because the dye that detects the hormone is all used up the first time you use it. Go check out www.peeonastick.com for more info on things like that! It's a great resource!
