You don't keep it and keep reading it as if a different result will appear. ...Read more

Repeat in one week.: I don't know how long after intercourse you did this test, but you might have done it too early. This tests HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin, which is made if your egg gets fertilized. This goes up each day after fertilization, so you are more likely to get a positive result the longer you wait. If you test too early, you could get a false negative result, so wait, and see dr. If no change. ...Read more
