2
3

5
% OF SAMPLES FROM PREGNANT WOMEN GIVING A POSITIVE RESULT
>99% >99% >99% 96%
76%
How accurate is the test?

FIRST RESPONSE™ 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 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 still there are 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 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 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 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 the 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 (for example, A.P.L.4, Pregnyl5, Profasi6 and Pergonal6). The test should not be affected by hormone therapies containing: Clomiphene citrate (for example Clomid7 and Serophene6); alcohol; antibiotics; or the contraceptive pill.
