First Response Pregnancy Test - Test up to 6 days before you expect your period!
The First Response Pregnancy Test is so sensitive that it can detect the pregnancy hormone as early as 6 days before your expected period.
The First Response Pregnancy test is so sensitive that most pregnant women have enough of the pregnancy hormone - hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) - to be detected as early as 6 days before their expected period. This means that you can use the First Response Pregnancy Test as early as 6 days before you expect your period.
For example, if you expect your period on the 21st day of the month, you can test as early as the 17th day of the month with the First Response Pregnancy Test.
The amount of pregnancy hormone increases as the pregnancy progresses. In clinical testing, First Response was able to detect hormone levels consistent with pregnancy in 62% of women 5 days before their expected period, in 78% of women 4 days before their expected period, in 87% of women 3 days before their expected period and in 98% of women 2 days before their expected period.
Please note that hormone levels may vary. An early test with a negative result does not necessarily mean that you are not pregnant, as it may be too early to tell because your urine does not have enough hCG for the test to give a positive result. If you do not get your period within seven days, you should retest with another First Response Early Pregnancy Test.
When in the day is best to test with First Response?
You can use the First Response Early Pregnancy Test any time of the day - it is not necessary to use first thing in the morning. However, your first morning urine contains the highest level of the pregnancy hormone.
How accurate is the First Response Pregnancy Test?
In studies of the First Response Early Pregnancy Test with urine samples representative of both pregnant and non-pregnant subjects, laboratory technicians obtained the correct expected results in more than 99% of the samples.
99% accurate at detecting the pregnancy hormone.
However, some pregnant women may not have detectable amounts of pregnancy hormone in their urine on the first day of the missed period or may have miscalculated the first day of their period.
