With the digitalis you gotta make sure you per with it facing away from you. You could have peed to long or not enough.

@atlbride2013:  Those things are so incredibly picky. Having learned my lesson with this box I will never buy them again. I would recommend if you do go down this route to dip them into a cup instead and make sure to give it 20 seconds exactly, no more and no less.

If you do test too early it will just come up as not pregnant. The book is just an error symbol, likely because urine got onto other parts of the test or too much urine.

@atlbride2013:  I think dipping for 20 Seconds is way too long.  Sounds like you flooded the tEst.

@BellaDee:  The instructions state 20 seconds for dipping, 5 seconds for in stream. 

@atlbride2013:  No problem. You could always call them and discuss considering the expense. I bought a pack of 3 and one has already done the blank window of error. In reading online I see that they typically will send additional tests to make up for this…maybe they will do this for you too.

@atlbride2013:  Sorry, those tests sound defective.

If you don’t want to pay a ton of $, Dollar Tree pregnancy tests work fine; they’re just not for EARLY testing although at 13 days past ovulation I could see a line. Once your period is due and you’re pregnant a line will show up. I’ve used them for 3 pregnancies.
