Expired test


Had a whoopsie this month so found an old test left over from DS. It was nearly a year over its expiry date but I thought Iíd try anyway. Itís bfn (and af is due now) but then Iíve read that with expired tests sometimes the dye can fade away. If the control line is dark like this tho then that probably means that the test is still working, right? I know I could just go buy a new test but money and effort when Iím pretty confident AF will be here soon. Anyone have any experience or knowledge with expired tests? 😊

Hmmm well I need to go shopping tomorrow anyway so if the spotting hasn’t progressed I may be tempted to buy more tests haha I forgot how much fun this is

I took a several expired tests. One was a dud. The dye didn't run and no control line came up. The others seemed to work fine but were BFN (I wasn't pregnant).

Yeah I think if the test was a dud then the control line wouldn’t show up. It was a long shot that I’d be pregnant as I don’t think our mistake was during ovulation so I think the test is right

I can see a line there but don't know if it's the indent? I have seen expired tests give false positives before, so I think your best bet it buy a fresh test
