    OK this is I'm sure a pretty stupid question :p so I apologise!!

    I have never fancied actually peeing on the stick itself as I seem to have a terrible aim so instead go for a bit of dipping :p It never seemed a very exact science otherwise!

    I just realised that the test I used earlier is a midstream test (so it said on the pack) and I went automatically for the dip technique. In the instructions there's no bit about being able to dip it so I wonder if this could make a difference? Do these tests work as well if you dip? I'm really intrigued to know what you guys think!!

    you should be able to dip it, but with a midstream test you should discard the first bit of your urine stream technically.
    I think they tend to work equally well either way.

    I always seem to hit everything but the stick when I don't use the cup method. Gross! I think you should be fine with dipping. No worries !
