HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

With the prega news pregnancy test, one line means that the result is negative and two lines indicate that it is positive.
Only 3 drops of urine are recommended, it may have been difficult to interpret because of the extra urine added.

You may want to obtain another test, either the same brand or another brand and redo the test.
It would be best to stick to the quantity of urine and time that is recommended by the brand.

I hope this helps

All you are required to put three drops of your morning urine on the test strip Morning Urine is best because highest concentration of hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). Wait for five minutes and check the color of the strip. If you find two pink colors on the strip then you are pregnant. And, if you find that there is only one pink color on the strip then you are not pregnant.
Remember to check results on the strip within 5 to 10 minutes for accurate prediction and use morning urine. There are different products in the market with different instruction of handling that can be very helpful for the specific device.
I hope my answer was helpful
take care.
