Azo strips show nitrates after being wet with urine after 1 minute and nitrites after 2 minutes. After that you can discard the strip because it isn't accurate for anything. If you have tried this twice and have only negative results, the frequent urination isn't from a urinary tract infection.

There are many reasons for frequent urination including urinary stones, diuretics, some beverages (coffee, cola, tea), interstitial cystitis, overactive bladder, anxiety, diabetes, and a number of other things.

Since it isn't a UTI, you will need an examination to determine what is causing it.
