We probably should change it every time we test, but like everyone (almost) is saying, that doesn't happen. I change mine once a day. I test 3 times a day and put a new one in at bedtime, after my last test. Then I have a new one ready in the morning. Sometimes, when they don't seem to give me a good poke, I change more often. They probably lose their real sharpness after more than 3 or 4 uses, so it's just less painful to have a good, sharp new one!
