Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about preconception.

Can home pregnancy tests expire?

Home pregnancy tests can expire if not used in a timely fashion. Though most have long expiration dates, they can give false results if used outside those dates, according to Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians.

Make sure to check the packaging for the expiration date before using it. 

For more information about home pregnancy tests expiring, talk with your doctor.
