Early Pregnancy Detection Matters3

The first few weeks of pregnancy are critical to fetal development, so early prenatal care is important for a healthy birth weight and the baby’s survival. The sooner you know you’re pregnant, the sooner you can begin making healthy pregnancy choices for yourself and your baby that include diet, nutrition and limiting your exposure to hazards.

Things to Know About Testing Early...Some pregnant women may not have detectable amounts of the pregnancy hormone in their urine on the day they use the test. The amount of pregnancy hormone increases as the pregnancy progresses. In laboratory testing, FIRST RESPONSE™ detected the pregnancy hormone levels in 76% of pregnant women, 5 days before their expected period; in 96% of pregnant women, 4 days before their expected period; in >99% of pregnant women, 3 days before their expected period; in >99% of pregnant women, 2 days before their expected period; in >99% of pregnant women, 1 day before their expected period; and in >99% of pregnant women, on the day of their expected period.

PREGNANT: Two Pink Lines appear in the Easy Read Result Window. Note: One line may be lighter than the other.

This result shows that the pregnancy hormone (hCG) was detected. Please see your healthcare professional to confirm this result.



NOT PREGNANT: Only One Pink Line appears in the Easy Read Result Window.

CAUTION: Although you may not be pregnant, it could also be too early to tell. For instance, your urine may not have enough of the pregnancy hormone to be detected yet. If you do not get your period within 7 days, retest with another FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Test. If you receive another Not Pregnant result and your period still hasn’t started, call your healthcare professional.

Frequent Questions

How does the FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Test work?

The test detects human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in urine. hCG is the hormone your body produces during pregnancy.

When can I test with FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Test?

The FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Test is designed to detect hCG as early as 6 days before your missed period (5 days before day of the expected period). The amount of pregnancy hormone increases as pregnancy progresses. In laboratory testing with early pregnancy urine samples, FIRST RESPONSE™ gave the following results:

How accurate is the test?

FIRST REPONSE™ is >99% accurate from the day of the expected period in laboratory studies. However, some pregnant women may not have detectable amounts of pregnancy hormone in their urine on the day of the test, or may have miscalculated the first day of their period.

What do I do if the result is positive (pregnant)?

A positive (pregnant) test result shows that the pregnancy hormone (hCG) was detected, which normally indicates pregnancy. You must see your doctor to confirm that you are pregnant. If you test positive, but think you may not be pregnant, you should check with your doctor.

What do I do if the result is negative (not pregnant)?

You may not be pregnant, or it may be too early to tell. If you do not get your period within 7 days, you should retest with another FIRST RESPONSE™ Early Result Pregnancy Test. It is possible that you miscalculated the length of your cycle, or your urine may not have had enough of the pregnancy hormone for the test to give you a positive result. If upon retesting you get another negative result and your period has still not started, you should call your doctor.

I have waited longer than 3 minutes, and there are still no lines in the Result Window. Is there anything wrong?

Your result should appear within 3 minutes. There should be at least one pink line in the Easy Read Result Window at 3 minutes to indicate that the test is completed and you have done it correctly. If not, the test is invalid. This could be due to insufficient urine on the Wide Absorbent Tip or not holding the device with the Wide Absorbent Tip pointing downward while replacing the Overcap. You should retest with another device, carefully following all directions.

Will the result change if left standing for a certain period of time?

The test result should be read as soon as possible after waiting 3 minutes. A negative result should not be read after 10 minutes.

Do any drugs or medications affect the test?

Only medications containing the pregnancy hormone (hCG) can affect the result (e.g., A.P.L.4, Pregnyl5, Profasi6 and Pergonal6). The test should not be affected by hormone therapies containing: Clomiphene citrate (e.g., Clomid7 and Serophene6); alcohol; painkillers; antibiotics; or the contraceptive pill.
