    I wouldn't worry too much about it. A lot of the girls on here (myself included) don't wait till it's room temp.

    I read through all my directions after hearing this the other day (got cheapies from online) and didnt find where they said that in my directions. I always pee'd in the cup and right away dipped them in... always had good readings & were obviously accurate for me this month! (the one thing i did always make sure I did was stop drinking before taking the test - so my urine wasnt diluted) Good luck!

    I was thinking she was talking about Ovulation tests?? Either way - didnt wait for urine to "cool down"

    My AF was due on CD31 usually when I will get it - sometimes later like CD32 or CD33
    I had pos opk sticks on CD17 & 18. Tested hpt on CD28 - so someone told me that was probably 10 days after ovulation (approx). Got faint + in am & held my urine all afternoon and got much stronger +'s so then took a digi.

    I first used Walmart equate brand... waited about 1 min and decided I couldnt be pregnant this month & went back to bed... few hours later looked at the stick and saw a line - so with 2nd mu used internet cheepie test. It was REALLY faint. Held pee and no drinking for 4 hours that afternoon and tested with first response with the 2 lines.... walmart equate brand - both very good lines - then tested with digi's that said "pregnant"

    i used internet cheap ones and then a digi, came up with a really good line on the cheap ones which has got stronger and stronger since. I started using a opk as i heard they go positive if you are pregnant and did not want to waste tests, got a bfp on them so then tried the hpt and that was positive too! xx

    walmart - equate said from the day af is due the others all said 4 days early... etc.. Not sure about internet cheepie - I just had 2 of those free when bought my opk's & wasted one one day cause thought it was one of my opk's - so just had the one left & looked almost like an evap line to me.

    If you look on poas.com it will tell you about how sensitive each test is.
