Testing for HGC

I am just curious if the amount you urinate during the day effects the amount of HGC in your body? I know that the morning is the best time to take a pregnancy test, so I want to wait until then, but if I were to take one now and I am in fact pregnant, could it show negative because I have been running to the bathroom every hour? Does the HGC level drop from peeing so much or it the same amount always there? I hope I've been clear enough, thanks

I have read with most tests these days you can use it at anytime but im sure the morning urine is better. You can always take another thats why I always bought the double packs. LOL

Re: Testing for HGC

You can hold it for about 2hrs and try not to drink anything. That's what I did and the results were always right. The line may be lighter than it would be in the morning, but it's worth a try.

Re: Testing for HGC

I took mine at 5pm. I don't necessarily think that the am rule applies anymore.

Re: Testing for HGC

I always waited until the morning but I don't think you really have to. If you're pregnant, you're pregnant. As long as you are late for your next period, you should get an accurate reading. The only reason they tell you to wait for the morning urine is because it is not diluted and has been sitting in your bladder for a while.
