    They do tend to go darker the longer you leave them-on my box it says you have to check within 15 seconds.HTH

    Hi Angelmouse,

    The ketostixs I have say that the reading has be taken after exactly 15 seconds, after that the reading may be false.
    Not sure why - that's just what it says!

    When did you start, are you on SS?

    Best time to test is in the morning I literally count 15 seconds in my head then take the colour reading.
