The Pregnancy Test can be performed at any time of the day. However, first-morning urine is preferable.
Remove the test from the pouch by tearing it from the notch. Remove the cap.
Hold the test by the thumb grip. Place the absorbent tip of the test in your urine stream until it is thoroughly wet (at least 5 seconds). If you prefer, you can urinate into a clean, dry cup or container and perform the test by dipping the absorbent tip of the test into the urine for at least 5 seconds.
Lay the stick down flat with the results window facing up. Wait 10 minutes. If you wish, you can replace the cap to cover the absorbent tip.
READING YOUR RESULTS
While you are waiting for your result, you may notice a colored solution moving across the window. This is normal. You need to wait 10 minutes to confirm the result. The test should not be evaluated after 30 minutes.
1 Line = Not Pregnant
If only 1 pink line appears in the test control window, the test is negative and you can assume you are not pregnant.
2 Lines = Pregnant
If 2 pink lines appear, 1 in the test region (T) and 1 in the control region (C), the test is positive and you can assume you are pregnant. Even if the lines are very light in color, you can still assume you are pregnant.
If a pink line does not appear in the test control window, the test is invalid. Invalid results may be an indication that the absorbent tip was not thoroughly saturated in urine. In this case, either urinate on the absorbent tip for additional time or re-dip the absorbent tip for at least 5 seconds and wait 10 minutes to read results. If there is still no pink line in the test control window, the test is invalid and testing should be repeated the following day with a new Pregnancy Test. Follow the instructions exactly, making sure the absorbent tip is thoroughly saturated with urine. Each test is designed for a single-use and should not be reused.
WHAT THE RESULTS MEAN
A positive result (two lines) indicates that your urine contains hCG (the pregnancy hormone) and you can assume you are pregnant. You should consult your doctor who is best able to further advise you on proper prenatal care. If you are taking medication, call your physician immediately to ensure it is safe for your baby.
A negative result means that no hCG has been detected and you can assume you are not pregnant. If a week passes and your menstrual period is still delayed, you should take another Pregnancy Test. If the result is still negative, there is little chance you are pregnant. However, you should follow up with your physician to determine why you are not menstruating.
If your menstrual cycle is irregular, it can be difficult to know the day you have missed your period. If your test indicated you are not pregnant and your menstrual cycle does not begin within a few days, you may have miscalculated your cycle and should take another Pregnancy Test.
LIMITATIONS OF TEST
The test works only if the instructions are followed precisely. Although the test is highly accurate in detecting pregnancy, a low incidence of false results can occur. Check with your doctor if you get unexpected or inconsistent test results. Certain health conditions can also cause a false or irregular test result. The following factors should not affect the test results: alcohol, analgesics (pain killers), antibiotics, and birth control pills. The test should not be used after the expiration date. Do not use the test if the protective foil pouch is opened or damaged. Pregnancy Tests, when performed by consumers, showed an accuracy of greater than 99% when compared to lab results.
