  • My mother actually brought these test strips over to me a while back maybe six months or so ago and I thought she was silly because I was pretty sure you had to go to a doctor to have a test done to see if you had a bladder infection which I was pretty sure I had but couldn't really afford to go to the doctor just have him tell me I didn't and have it all be a waste of money in the long run
  • But at least I'd have some piece of mind and wouldn't have to worry about it anymore and that was good because I know how fast a simple bladder infection can turn into something really serious which is exactly what happened to me when I was fifteen and I had a kidney infection as a result of a UTI that landed me in the hospital on IV's and fluids for two days
  • I've since reada lot of reviews about them stating that they read false positives or false negatives all the time and you're never really sure if you have a UTI or not, but maybe these people weren't following the directions and the notes because there are some pretty specific circumstances during which the tests could be rendered inaccurate, like if you are using antibiotics of anykind, or taking UTI tablets, even something like AZO or cranberry pills because this contain a certain chemical that can change the results of the test, but I think the big thing is that the urine has to have been retained in the bladder for at least 4 hours in order to get a good read, so it's not like you can drink a glass of water and use this test five minutes later and think it's going to be sufficient
  • It's best if you can use these strips first thing in the morning since you know the urine will likely have been int he bladder the whole time, which will give you the best results more than using it any other time of the time, and then it works primarily like a pregnancy test and you just urinate on the stick and wait about a minute for the reading to show up and then you compare it to what's on the box to get your answer

Then again, it was pay for these tests or pay for a co-pay, but either way it would be a waste of money if I didn’t have one. But at least I’d have some piece of

      These Consumer’s Choice test strips are pretty particular about how it will and wont work. I’ve since reada lot of reviews about them stating that they read false positives or false negatives all the time and you’re never really sure if you have a UTI or not, but maybe these people weren’t following the directions and the “notes” because there are some pretty specific circumstances during which the tests could be rendered inaccurate, like if you are using antibiotics of anykind, or taking UTI tablets, even something like AZO or cranberry pills because this contain a certain chemical that can change the results of the test, but I think the big thing is that the urine has to have been retained in the bladder for at least 4 hours in order to get a good read, so it’s not like you can drink a glass of water and use this test five minutes later and think it’s going to be sufficient.

      have been int he bladder the whole time, which will give you the best results more than using it any other time of the time, and then it works primarily like a pregnancy test and you just urinate on the stick and wait about a minute for the reading to show up and then you compare it to what’s on the box to get your answer.

      These told me that I did have a bladder infection and I ended up having to go to the doctor anyway and spend more money. I’m not sure what the point is of wasting the moeny for these test strips, because if you don’t have an infection, it’s a waste, and if you do have an infection,

      it’s a waste because you still have to go to the doctor to get antibiotics, so I guess the only thing these test strips are really good for is if you just want some peace of mind and aren’t looking for anything more than that, and sometimes I’ll admit that’s a good thing to have. But I did find the test to be accurate because my doctor confirmed that I had a UTI and I’ve used them a couple other times and so far so good, they’ve been spot on each time, telling me when I do and don’t have a UTI depending on whether or not I use these sticks at a good time of the day and following the other guidelines. Works for me.
