With BioTest Pregnancy Test Kit, you can perform the test in the privacy of your home and find out the result within minutes.Do remember to read the instructions clearly before performing the test to ensure that you understand how to use the test and get a reliable result.
Q How does the test work?
A BioTest Pregnancy Test Kit detects the hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) hormone in the urine that your body produces during pregnancy. The amount of pregnancy hormone increases as pregnancy progresses.
Q How soon after I suspect that I am pregnant can I take the test?
A You can test your urine as early as the first day you miss your period. You can perform the test anytime of the day; however, if you are pregnant, first morning urine contains the most pregnancy hormone.
Q Do I have to test with first-morning urine?
A Although you can test any time of the day, your first morning urine specimen is usually the most concentrated of the day and would have the most hCG hormones in it.
Q How accurate is the test?
A In both laboratory and consumer clinical studies, BioTest Pregnancy Test Kit has proved to be greater than 99% accuracy.
Q What factors may affect the result?
A Drugs which contains hCG (such as Pregnyl, Profasi, Pergonal, APL) can give a false positive result. Alcohol, oral contraceptives, painkillers, antibiotics or hormone therapies that do not contain hCG should not affect the test result.
Q What should I do if the result shows positive?
A It means that your urine contains at least 25mIU/ml amount of hCG and you are most probably pregnant. See your doctor to confirm that you are pregnant and discuss the steps you should take.
Q Does the result mean anything other than normal pregnancy if it shows positive?
A A number of medical conditions other than pregnancy, including ovarian cyst or ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus) can cause elevated levels of hCG.
Q How do I know that the test was properly done?
A The appearance of a red line in the control window marked ‘C’ tells you that you followed the test procedure correctly and the proper amount of urine was absorbed.
Q What should I do if the results show negative?
A It means that no hCG hormone has been detected in your urine and probably you are not pregnant. If you do not start your period within a week of its due date, repeat the test with a new test kit. If you receive the same result after repeating the test and you still do not get your period, you should see your doctor.
