HOW DO THE FIRST RESPONSE™ PREGNANCY TESTS WORK?
From the earliest moments of conception, your body is already starting to undergo monumental changes. One of the very first is production of the pregnancy hormone, hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin), which can be detected in your blood and in your urine.
The amount of hCG in your body increases rapidly. It doubles every 36 to 48 hours as your pregnancy progresses, reaching its peak at eight to ten weeks. FIRST RESPONSE™ Pregnancy Tests work by detecting hCG levels in your urine. When a woman's urine comes in contact with the specially treated strip on a FIRST RESPONSE™ Pregnancy Test stick, results appear within minutes, indicating whether or not hCG, the pregnancy hormone, has been detected.
WHEN CAN/SHOULD I TAKE A PREGNANCY TEST?
You can use the FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Test any time of the day, up to five days before the day your period is due. Generally you don't have to use first morning urine, however, your first morning urine contains the highest level of the pregnancy hormone. Use our test day calculatorto determine the best day for you to take a test.
I HAVE WAITED LONGER THAN THE ALLOCATED WAITING TIME, AND STILL THERE ARE NO LINES IN THE RESULT WINDOW. IS THERE ANYTHING WRONG?
If using the FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Test your result should appear within three minutes.
If using the FIRST RESPONSE™ Rapid Result Pregnancy Test your results should appear within 45 seconds.
There should be at least one pink line in the FIRST RESPONSE™ Result Window after this time to indicate that the test is completed and you have done it correctly. If at 5 minutes there are no lines within the FIRST RESPONSE™ Result Window the test is invalid. This could be due to insufficient urine on the Absorbent Tip or not holding the device with the Absorbent Tip pointing downward while replacing the Overcap. You should retest with another device, carefully following the instructions which can be found on this page.
HOW SOON CAN A PREGNANCY BE DETECTED?
Your doctor can perform blood tests that will accurately diagnose pregnancy several days before you missed your period, or your doctor may opt to conduct a urine test a day or so later. Home pregnancy tests, like the FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Tests, are also a great option. FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Tests can capture scant amounts of the pregnancy hormone. No test gives you an answer sooner than FIRST RESPONSE™.
WILL THE RESULT CHANGE IF LEFT STANDING FOR A CERTAIN PERIOD OF TIME?
The FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Tests should be read as soon as possible after the allocated waiting time (3 minutes for FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Test, 45 seconds for FIRST RESPONSE™ Rapid Result Pregnancy Test). A positive result will last for at least 48 hours. However, a negative result may not last and should not be read after 10 minutes.
THE LINE(S) IN THE RESULT WINDOW OF THE RAPID RESULT TEST TOOK LONGER THAN 45 SECONDS TO APPEAR. IS THIS A VALID RESULT?
Yes, in some cases it may take longer than 45 seconds to obtain a result. The presence of at least one pink line in the FIRST RESPONSE™ Result Window indicates a valid test.
I CAN SEE A VERY FAINT SECOND PINK LINK IN THE RESULT WINDOW. AM I PREGNANT?
The FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Test has an easy to read test stick - two pink lines in the Result Window means you are pregnant, one pink line means you are not pregnant. The appearance of a second line, which may be lighter than the other, is a positive result.
HOW ACCURATE ARE FIRST RESPONSE™ TESTS?
FIRST RESPONSE™ Pregnancy Tests are over 99% accurate at detecting typical hormone levels in laboratory testing. No test can tell you sooner than FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Test. In laboratory testing, FIRST RESPONSE™ detected hormone levels consistent with pregnancy in 76% of women 6 days before the day of missed period, in 96% of women 5 days before the day of missed period, and in >99% of women 4 or fewer days before the day of missed period.
DO MEDICATIONS OR ALCOHOL AFFECT THE TEST?
