How to use Reassurance Pregnancy Test
1. Before you begin
Please always read the instruction leaflet carefully before taking a pregnancy test.
You can test any time of the day from the day you expect your period.
Don’t drink lots of liquid before taking the test.
When ready to test, remove the pregnancy test stick from the foil wrapper and take off the blue cap.
Use the pregnancy test stick straight away.
2. Taking 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.
Keep the Color Change Tip pointing downwards or lay the pregnancy test stick flat while you wait for the result.
As the pregnancy test begins to work, you will see blue lines start to develop in the result and control windows. Make sure you wait for the blue control line before reading your result.
A blue line must be present in the control window when you read your result. This shows the test has worked.
4. Read your results
In just 2 minutes you can read your clear + or – results.
A '+' (plus) symbol indicates your result is 'Pregnant'.
A '-' (minus) symbol indicates your result is 'Not Pregnant'.
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 Reassurance Pregnancy Test?
Reassurance Pregnancy Test is more than 99% accurate1 in laboratory tests, when used from the day you expect your period to start
How does Reassurance 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. Reassurance Pregnancy Test detects this hormone in your urine.
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®2 and Profasi®3) 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 (such as Clomid®4, clomiphene citrate), 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 like Clomid®, 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?
Reassurance Pregnancy Test is over 99% accurate1 at detecting the pregnancy hormone from the day you expect your period. However, it’s possible to get a pregnant (positive) result and find out later that you’re not pregnant (i.e., you may later get a negative result, or your period may start). This may be due to natural loss during the early stages of pregnancy, known as ‘early pregnancy loss’, which sadly is not uncommon, as around 1 in 4 pregnancies end in early pregnancy loss. If you do get unexpected results, ask your doctor for advice.
I have used Reassurance 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. If no blue line appears in the control window, see question 6.
I have used Reassurance Pregnancy Test but no blue line has appeared in the control window. 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, taking care to follow the instructions. You may wish to collect a sample of your urine in a clean, dry container and immerse just the Color Change Tip for 5 seconds only.
What if I am unsure of my result?
For your result to be ‘Pregnant’ there must be a blue line in the control window and a ‘+’ symbol in the result window within 10 minutes of performing the test. The appearance of the ‘+’ symbol in the result window may vary, however, the lines that make up the ‘+’ symbol and the line in the control window should be of a similar width (see pictures A-C).
This is more likely to occur when you are pregnant and you are testing more than a few days after your missed period as hCG levels are higher.
This is not unusual when you are pregnant and you are testing on or around the day of your expected period as hCG levels may still be relatively low.
Even if faint this still denotes a pregnant result.
For your result to be ‘Not Pregnant’ there must be a blue line in the control window and a ‘-’ symbol in the result window within 10 minutes of performing the test. If your result is ‘Not Pregnant’ and pregnancy is still suspected, refer to question 9.
My Reassurance Pregnancy 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.
My Reassurance Pregnancy 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, or you may have miscalculated the day you expect your period. If your period is overdue, test again in 3 days’ time. If this test gives you a 'Not Pregnant' result and you still have not had your period, see your doctor.
