How to use Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test
1. Before you begin
Please always read the instruction leaflet carefully before taking a pregnancy test.
If you're testing from the day you expect your period, you can test with urine from any time of the day. If you're testing early, use the first urine of the day.
When ready to test, remove the pregnancy test stick from the foil wrapper and take off the blue cap. Use the test right away.
2. Take the test
Simply hold the absorbent color change tip in your urine stream, or in a sample of your urine collected in a clean dry container, for just 5 seconds.
The color change tip will instantly turn pink showing that urine is being absorbed. Continue holding the color change tip in the urine for the full 5 seconds.
As the pregnancy test begins to work, you'll see blue lines start to develop.
4. Read your results
A ‘Pregnant’ result may appear in 1 minute when testing from your missed period (which is the day after your expected period).
Wait for 3 minutes to confirm a ‘Not Pregnant’ result or when testing before you have missed your period.
A blue line must be present in the control window when you read your result. This line shows that the test has worked.
If no blue line appears in the control window within 10 minutes the test has not worked.
It does not matter if one of the lines that make up the '+' symbol is lighter or darker than the other; the result is 'Pregnant' (positive).
Read your result within 10 minutes of doing a test. Ignore any changes to your result after this time.
Frequently asked questions
How accurate is Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test?
Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test is over 99% accurate from the day you expect your period3.
When can I test with Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test?
Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test can be used as early as 5 days before your missed period (which is 4 days before you expect your period to start). If you test before your expected period and get a 'Not Pregnant' (negative) result, there is still a chance that you may be pregnant. See the chart below for results from lab testing of Clearblue® Rapid Detection with early pregnancy samples.
|Number of days before the expected period||-1||-2||-3||-4|
|% of samples from pregnant women giving a 'Pregnant' result||98%||97%||88%||56%|
How does Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test work?
When you are pregnant your body produces the pregnancy hormone hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotrophin). The amount of hCG in your body increases in the early stages of pregnancy. Clearblue® Rapid Detection can detect tiny amounts of this hormone in your urine. (The sensitivity of this test is 25mIU/ml).
Can any medication or medical conditions affect the result?
- Always read the manufacturer's instructions for any medication you are taking before conducting a test.
- Fertility drugs containing hCG (such as Pregnyl® and Profasi®4) can give misleading results (these fertility drugs are usually given by injection, and testing too soon after administration may give a false 'Pregnant' result).
- Other fertility therapies, painkillers and hormonal contraceptives (e.g. contraceptive pill) should not affect the result. However, if you have recently stopped taking hormonal contraception or are using fertility therapies, your periods may be irregular, leading you to test too soon.
- If you have recently been pregnant (even if not carried to full term) you may get a false 'Pregnant' result.
- Ectopic pregnancy, ovarian cysts, menopause and some very rare medical conditions can give misleading results.
If you do get unexpected results you should discuss them with your doctor.
I previously tested ‘Pregnant’ but have tested again and got a ‘Not Pregnant’ result, or my period has started. What does this mean?
It is possible to get a positive result and later find out you are no longer pregnant (i.e., you may later get a negative result, or your period may start). This is called early pregnancy loss, which sadly is not uncommon, affecting around 1 in 4 pregnancies. However most women can go on to have a healthy pregnancy afterwards. If you do get unexpected results, ask your doctor for advice.
I have used the Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test but the Color Change Tip has not turned completely pink. What should I do?
If the color change tip has not turned completely pink you may not have applied enough urine. However, if the blue line in the control window appears within 10 minutes of performing the test then the test has worked.
I have used the Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test but no blue line has appeared in the control window within 10 minutes. What should I do?
The test has not worked. This may be because:
- The color change tip was not kept pointing downwards or the pregnancy test stick was not laid flat after urine was applied.
- Too much or too little urine was used. You must sample for 5 seconds. You should test again, using a new pregnancy test stick, taking care to follow the instructions. You may wish to collect a sample of your urine in a clean, dry container and immerse only the color change tip for 5 seconds.
What if I am unsure of my result?
Picture A: This denotes a 'Pregnant' (positive) result. This is more likely when you are testing before you expect your period when your hCG levels may be relatively low.
Picture B: This is not unusual when you are pregnant (positive) and you are testing on or around the day you expect your period as hCG levels may still be relatively low.
Picture C: This is more likely to occur when you are pregnant (positive) and you are testing more than a few days after you expect your period as hCG levels are higher.
For your result to be 'Pregnant' (positive) there must be a blue line in the control window and a '+' symbol in the result window within 10 minutes of testing.
It does not matter if one of the lines that make up the ‘+’ symbol is lighter or darker than the other; the result is ‘Pregnant’.
For your result to be 'Not Pregnant' (negative) there must be a blue line in the control window and a '-' (minus) symbol in the result window within 10 minutes of performing the test.
If you are still unsure of your result, you should wait at least 3 days before testing again, taking care to follow the instructions.
My test says I’m not pregnant. What should I do?
You may not be pregnant (negative), or the level of pregnancy hormone may not yet be high enough to be detected. Test again in 3 days’ time. If this test gives you a 'Not Pregnant' result and your period is late, see your doctor.
My test says I'm pregnant. What should I do?
If your test says you are pregnant (positive) you should see your doctor who can advise you on what steps you should take next.
When can I read the result?
A ‘Pregnant’ result may appear in as fast as 1 minute when testing from the day you miss your period (which is the day after your period was expected but did not come). Make sure a blue line is also present in the control window before reading your result. You must wait 3 minutes to confirm a ‘Not Pregnant’ result, or when testing before you expect your period.
What are the early signs of pregnancy?
There are various symptoms that can indicate you might be pregnant, even if you might not experience any/all of them.
When can I take a pregnancy test?
