Do you pee on a stick or in a cup?

With few exceptions, most pregnancy tests allow you to pee on a stick directly. This is great, if you're a man. Aiming a stream of urine as a female is much harder. And then there is the ominous warning to not pee on the test window. It totally freaks me out.

There is the second option, pee in a cup and dip the test stick. A few, very few, pregnancy tests come with tiny little cups to collect urine for the testing process. The small cups present their own challenges, but have the benefit of not contaminating the test. The bigger question is can you pee in the cup and not on your hand?

Enter the disposable cup that is big enough to catch the urine and small enough to fit in the toilet. This makes me want to write my own country song about the Red Solo Cup. It large, it's pee-proof, and it does the job.

What's your take on this dilemma? Are you a pee on a stick or in a cup kind of gal when it comes to pregnancy tests?
