Pregnancy Test Strip Instructions
Start testing from 7 days past ovulation!
Fertility2Family Pregnancy Test Strips are a fast, reliable and easy-to-use method of detecting pregnancy. Fertility2Family Pregnancy Test Strips 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 Home Pregnancy Test?
1. Collect urine in a small urine collection cup.
2. Remove the HTP test strip from the foil wrapper. Always try to hold the coloured end of the test, avoiding contact with the absorbent end.
3. Immerse the strip vertically into the urine with the arrow end pointing towards the urine. Do not immerse past the MAX (maximum) line.
4. After 15 seconds, remove the strip from the urine. Lay the test flat on a non-absorbent, dry, clean surface.
5. Leave the test for 3 minutes, and after this period, the results will be ready to read. Do not interpret test results after 5 minutes.
6. Discard the test device after a single use.
Interpreting the Pregnancy Test 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 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.
Pregnancy Test Strip Instructions FAQs
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 Pregnancy Test Strip?
In laboratory studies, the Fertility2Family Dip and Read Pregnancy have been proved to be greater than 99% accurate. Our 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 result?
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. A pregnancy test is positive if a second line contains pink dye in the test panel. Our Pregnancy Test Strip Instructions help alleviate any stress from testing at home and will confirm up to 7 days past ovulation that you are pregnant.
What can I do to 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. This Conceive Plus lubricant has been scientifically formulated to match fertile cervical liquid and sperm, enhance sexual activity, and increase the likelihood of conception.

WARNINGS & PRECAUTIONS
• As with all diagnostic tests, a definitive diagnostic should not be based on a single test result. Reading the Pregnancy Test Strip Instructions first before using and having results checked by a physician, after all, clinical and laboratory findings have been evaluated.
• Read directions for use carefully before performing this home pregnancy test. Pay attention to the position of the Test and Control line.
• Do not use it beyond the labelled expiry date.
• Do not reuse the pregnancy test strip. Discard product after a single-use.
• Do not touch the membrane located within the test panel.
• Do not use if the pouch is damaged or open.
• The device should be used immediately after opening the pouch. Prolonged exposure to ambient humidity will cause product deterioration.
• Treat urine samples and used devices as if they are potentially infectious. Avoid contact.
• Discard desiccant safely.
Medications containing the pregnancy hormone (hCG) can affect the result of the test. Please consult your healthcare professional if you are taking any medications.
Due to the Fertility2Family Pregnancy Tests (10mIU) high sensitivity, 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 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.
