Midstream Pregnancy Test Instructions
Start testing from 7 days past ovulation!
Fertility2Family Midstream Pregnancy Tests are a fast, reliable and easy-to-use method of detecting pregnancy. Fertility2Family Midstream Pregnancy Tests detect the hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin) hormone. A hormone produced by the placenta after the fertilised egg adheres to the uterus wall.
How to Perform a Pregnancy Test?
1. Remove the Midstream Pregnancy Test from the foil wrapper.
2. Remove the cap to expose the absorbent tip, avoiding contact with the absorbent end.
3. Hold the Pregnancy Test by the thumb grip with the exposed absorbent tip pointing downward. Urinate onto the absorbent tip only until it is thoroughly wet.
4. Recap the device and lay the test stick down on a flat surface with the window facing up.
5. Results may be observed after 1 minute. Do not interpret test results after 5 minutes.
6. Discard the test device after a single use.
Interpreting the Midstream pregnancy tests Results
Negative: If only one coloured line appears in the control area, the test is negative, and you can assume that you are not pregnant.
Positive: If two coloured lines appear both in the control and test areas, the midstream pregnancy test is positive, and you can assume you are pregnant.
Invalid: If there is no distinct pink-purple coloured band visible both in the test area and control area, the test is invalid. It is recommended that you should retest using a new test strip. If the problem persists, contact Fertility2Family.
Testing for Pregnancy FAQ
When can I start testing for pregnancy?
There is no need to wait until you have missed your period to begin testing. You can test as early as 7 days past ovulation or 5-7 days before your expected period. When testing early, try to use first-morning urine.
How accurate is the Fertility2Family Home Pregnancy Test?
In laboratory studies, the Fertility2Family Midstream Pregnancy Tests has been proved to be greater than 99% accurate. Our Midstream Pregnancy Tests are sensitive to hCG – 10mIU/ml making them one of the most sensitive on the market.
What should I do if I get a positive pregnancy test?
You should make an appointment to see your doctor confirm the pregnancy and begin prenatal care.
What should I do if I get a negative HPT result?
A negative result indicated that the hCG hormone was not detected in your urine, and you are unlikely pregnant. If your period is late, we suggest you re-test, and if this test is also negative, we recommend you contact your doctor.
The Test Line is not as dark as the Control Line. Am I pregnant?
Yes, you are pregnant even if a very light test line is detected, unlike an ovulation test where the test line needs to be as dark or darker than the control line to be a positive result. A pregnancy test is positive if there is a second line that contains pink dye.
How do I increase my chances of falling pregnant?
Primarily it would help if you determined when you are ovulating, as this is your most fertile window. Using Fertility2Family Ovulation Test Strips or our Basal Body Temperature (BBT) thermometer, you can determine your most fertile window and dramatically increase your chances of falling pregnant. You may also find our cheap Sperm Friendly Lubricant helpful. Conceive Plus lubricant has been scientifically formulated to match fertile cervical liquid and sperm, enhance sexual activity, and increase the likelihood of conception.

Due to the high sensitivity of the Fertility2Family Midstream Pregnancy Tests (10mIU), the detection of hCG in the urine from a menopausal or peri-menopausal woman may not indicate pregnancy. Still, it may represent the detection of pituitary hCG and that the positive interpretation requires repeat testing by a laboratory-based method for confirmation of pregnancy.
Due to the high sensitivity of Fertility2Family Midstream Pregnancy Tests (10mIU), it is possible to detect a pregnancy that may be non-viable if testing before the first day of the missed period (often referred to as a chemical pregnancy).
The reliability of the result will increase by, or after, the first day of the missed period for establishing the viability of the pregnancy.
