First morning urine: It is most accurate to get the first urine of the morning for the most accurate results. This could possibly change results otherwise if urine is dilute/"watered down".

If my husband tests negative for stds, how could I get 1?

Who knows?: Being negative for stds on testing still does not guarantee for 100% saying no stds because all the tests have their false positive or negative result. Furthermore, many men and women are asymptomatic carriers notably for hpv, herpes, chlamydia, etc. In real life, we have to keep up good health to win the war against bacteria, yeasts, virus as much as we can through practicing healthy lifestyle.
