- One Step Pregnancy Test
- Can be performed at any time of the day
- Very Effective
- The BFP Pregnancy Test can be performed at any time of the day; however, testing first morning urine is preferable.
- Urinate into a clean, dry cup or container.
- Remove the testing device from the foil pouch by tearing at the notch. Hold the strip at the colored end. (Do not touch the arrow end; do not touch the test window/the middle part of the strip)
- Holding the strip vertically, immerse the end of the strip with the arrows into the specimen. Do not immerse past the MAX line.
- Take the strip out when the sample has migrated to the test window (at least 5 seconds). Lay the strip (MAX side facing up) flat on a clean, dry, non-absorbent surface.
READING YOUR RESULTS
While you are waiting for your result, you may notice a colored solution moving across the test strip. This is normal. You need to wait 10 minutes to confirm the result. The test should not be evaluated after 30 minutes. The exact color of the line is not important.
1 Line = Not Pregnant
If only 1 colored line appears as the control line, the test is negative and you can assume you are not pregnant.
2 Lines = Pregnant
If 2 colored lines appear, 1 as the testing line and 1 as the control line, 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.
Invalid Results: If the control line does not appear, the test is invalid. Invalid results may be an indication that the test strip was not thoroughly saturated in urine. In this case, re-dip the test for at least 5 seconds and wait 10 minutes to read results. If there is still no control line, the test is invalid and you should retest the following day. Each test is designed for a single use and should not be reused.
WHAT THE RESULTS MEAN
A positive result (2 Lines) indicates that your urine contains hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin) 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, telephone him or her immediately and make sure it is safe for your baby.
A negative result (1 Line in the “Control Zone” ) 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 do another BFP Pregnancy Test. If the result is still negative in the later test, there is little chance that you are pregnant. However, because there could be health-related reasons why you are not menstruating, you should see your doctor without delay.
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 you menstrual cycle does not begin within a few days, you may have miscalculated your cycle and should use a second BFP 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, analgestics (pain killers), antibiotics, and birth control pills. The test should not be used after the expiration date shown on the package. The BFP Pregnancy Test Strips is greater than 99% accurate.
