General Information for non-professionals

Most pregnancy tests can be carried out from the first day of a missed period. If you don’t know when your next period is due, do the test at least 21 days after unprotected sex.

Pregnancy tests detect the hormone human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), which the body begins to produce around six days after fertilisation.

The sensitivity of a pregnancy test is described on the packaging as mIU/ml (milli-International Unit per millilitre).

Always be sure to thoroughly check the instructions before use to avoid inaccurate results.

Positive test results are almost certainly correct, negative results can be less reliable. If you get a negative result and still think you’re pregnant, wait a few days and test again. Speak to your GP if you get a negative result after a second test but your period hasn’t arrived.

Always follow the directed reading times and never read after the instructed time. Once the reaction time for the pregnancy test has been completed, colour bands will either appear or not appear in the test region. After the instructed time you may see an ‘Evaporation line’ which can be caused by evaporation of the urine, leaving a faint, colourless line.

All tests have a “control” colour band or colour line that indicates whether the test is working or not, the “test” colour line is used to indicate a positive or negative result.

Assuming that the pregnancy testing procedure has been followed correctly and the results have been interpreted within the timeframe indicated, a faint line in the test region of the result window may be read as a positive result, although it is recommended to verify the result a day or two after using the first morning urine sample.
