Using hpts past use by date


I stupidly found a box of 3 first response hpts in my cupboard and decided to use one because i was expecting a bfn anyway. Well the damn thing has come up with a faint positive. I'm too lazy to go buy more atm and I'm patient enough to wait and test again tomorrow...but in the meantime I'm interested in other experiences with out of date hpts and if it's possible/likely for false positives?

In the photo the top one is my current faint positive from the out of date hpt. The one on the bottom is from my last successful pregnancy at the same dpt. Please dont judge my hoarding of pee sticks hahahaha it was such a triumph to finally get a bfp that ive struggled to throw them out

With an expired test you are more likely to get a false negative than a false positive!

Agreed looks good but I will say I knew one user on here that got a bfp on an expired frer but it was a false positive as she went to get a beta done that day and it came back <1

It does look like a but I would test again with a test that isn't expired just to be on the safe side. Good luck
