I'm not sure what brand of test you used but I used First Response and it says in the pamphlet "The test result should be read as soon as possible after waiting the 3 minutes. A positive result will last for at least 48 hours. A negative result should not be read after 10 minutes." I'm guessing that the hormones dry up along with the urine so the test is not longer able to detect it.
