|You can't use the same urine sample for two tests. The negative is probably wrong. My sister did that (dipped more than one test in the same urine sample) and the first positive but all the rest were negative.|

What I've read is that some tests are marked to be sensitive to, say 100mIU, but will often pick up hCg in smaller quantities. I guess they are maybe only *consistant* at the 100mIU level, or for whatever reason the company does not choose to market them as more sensitive.
