This is not TTC related.. but once I was throwing up into a mug I had beside my bed after a night out while running to the toilet to continue throwing up.. and then dropped the mug in the toilet and it smashed. I tried to pick all of the pieces out with my hand but some went way down into the pipe. And I broke the toilet. So I hope you managed to get all the pieces out! 😉

I have wondered in the past whether or not I should use a glass. It seems wasteful to use the little plastic cups, but yeah I guess there is the risk of breakage! I personally just pee directly onto the stick, but I have used the cup method in the past and used the disposable cups and it always felt a bit wasteful. I use a glass cup for mouthwash because I felt like it was too wasteful to use the paper cups for that.

zstbee84 :  Plastic cups can always be rewashed still!

rosadiaz :  That is a good point. I hadn’t really thought of that – depending on how durable they are you could certainly get several uses out of one.

I asked my doc for a few urine collection cups and she gave them to me. Just rewash them. I used to use a plastic cup from the kitchen but figured Darling Husband would be grossed out if he ever found out (he’s a germaphobe).

Good thing you didn’t break the toilet!

I use a disposable plastic cup, like the solo cups people play beer pong with in college.  I rinse it out or wash it in between uses.  I have a laundry chute in my bathroom that I don’t use for laundry, so I just store it on the ledge in there so it is out of sight.

chitownyogini :  Lol she said she pees directly on the test stick, not the sink.  That would be something!

Darling Husband keeps a bunch of his empty protein containers at home above our cupboards. It’s his way of keeping track which ones he likes most as he always changes it up. Anyways, I actually use ome of his old plastic scoops. I like the fact it has a handle so my hand doesn’t get wet. I just dump it in the toilet, wash and dry it with paper towel! I’ve been using the same since starting ttc

I’m a nurse and you would not believe the number or people who drop their urine cups in the toilet when trying to give me a sample. The best part is that I’m the one who has to fish it out.

not related but you would not believe the number of people who give me urine samples and I get a call from the lab that the sugar level is off the charts, is the patient diabetic???  At which point I have to go tell the patient I know they gave me apple juice in a cup, now give me a real sample or I will draw all kinds of labs to figure out why there’s so much sugar in your “pee” and that’s a whole lot of needle sticks…
