    Hi girls,

    This may be a daft question. I am nowhere near testing yet but my IC's came today. The instructions say that the urine and test should be at room temp. How long does urine take to cool to room temp and does it really make a difference? Could this be the reason why they give so many evaps?

    I will buy other brand but because i am a POAS addict i thought i should start with the cheapies.

    uhh, weird. I would assume they mean not to use a sample that you've just taken out of the refrigerator. I've never heard of letting it cool before testing. It kind of grosses me out actually...

    Yeah me to. Its kinda odd but i thought that because i am new to these that it was just me. You have to pee in a cup first and then dip the stick (again all new to me). The very first instruction on the page is that the stick and urine has to be at room temp. :wacko:

    Hmm...I always do mine asap...I've never let it cool. But I find that on the IC HPTs it can take up to ten minutes for a BFP to show....

    Do they have a number that you can call and ask them if they actually mean let it get to room temp? Or if they're saying not to use fridge stored samples?

    Hmm.. Well it does sound like they want you to let the urine get to room temperature. Weird.

    Haha, true! But I think you'd just be able to feel the side of the cup to see if it's cool enough.
