Not at all. I've done it all the time, even tho you'd think that with a seventh pregnancy I'd have it down by now! The window is sealed, so as long as you get enough on the absorbent end, your good to go.

I would do another test. You are supposed to pee on the tip and ONLY the tip. Try another please.

Pee in a cup (disposable is obviously better for hygienic reasons) and dunk the stick in. No mess! No worries about whether it is done 'right' or not. Smile

Oh, I think I forgot to mention: with the 7 pregnancies that makes at least 15 tests that I have taken, plus additional ones where I thought I was when I wasn't....so way too many to count over my past 9 years of child-bearing.

Even if I splashed on the window, the test has always worked. And I have never had an inaccurate result. So don't worry about yours Smile

If the test comes up negative, but the test window was splashed, is it possible that can be wrong?

No, the test works with urine. Urine does not harm it.
