Our Pregnancy is a simple to use screening test that enables women to determine whether they have become pregnant. This fast and reliable test works by detecting elevated levels of human chronic gonadotrophin (hCG) in urine – a hormone which the body produces during pregnancy. Thanks to the clever design of this test, it has a much smaller environmental footprint due to the babystart ECOstrip.
Our Pregnancy test is an easy to use test that provides results in as little as one minute. For convenience, the test may be performed at any time of day.
2 tests per pack
Over 99% accurate
Results in 5 minutes
Easy to use mid-stream self test
Remove the test from the packet and take off the purple cap
Hold the absorbent tip in your urine stream or hold it in a urine sample for at least 10 seconds until it is thoroughly wet
Replace the cap and lay the test on a flat surface facing upwards for 5 minutes before reading the result. Do not read after 10 minutes
A pregnancy is shown by a red line in both the test (heart shaped) and control (circular) window no matter how faint the lines are. If you just see a single line in the control window this means that the test has worked but you are not pregnant
If you are pregnant, please see your doctor who can advise you on the next steps you should take
Positive test results may appear as early as one minute. This sensitive pregnancy test can give positive results as early as 7-10 days after conception. The test is greater than 99% accurate.
1. How does the test work?
The test detects a hormone in your urine that your body produces when you are pregnant. This is called human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG). The amount of hCG increases as your pregnancy progresses.
2. How soon after I think I might be pregnant can I take the test?
You can test as early as 10 days after baby making. However, as pregnancy hormone (hCG) levels vary from woman to woman during early pregnancy it’s not until the day of your missed period that the test will be 99% accurate.So, if you do test before your missed period and see a negative result repeat the test on or after the day of your missed period.
3. Do I have to test with first morning urine?
You can test at any time of the day but your first urine in the morning is usually the most concentrated and contains the most hCG.
4. What should I do if the result shows that I am not pregnant?
This means that no hCG has been detected in your urine at the time you took the test. If you don’t start your period within a week of its due date, repeat the test with a new pregnancy test. If you obtain the same result with a new test and you still do not get your period, you should see your GP.
5. What should I do if the result shows that I am pregnant?
Congratulations! Please see your Doctor to discuss the next steps that you should take.
6. How do I know that the test has worked properly?
You will see a red line in the circular control window to confirm that your test has worked properly.
7. How accurate is the test?
The accuracy of the test was assessed by comparing it to another commercially available pregnancy test. 160 urine samples were tested: 90 from non‐pregnant women and 70 from pregnant women.
The Babystart pregnancy test showed 90 positive results and 70 negatives, showing 100% correlation with both the commercially available test and the clinician’s interpretation. The test accuracy is therefore calculated as greater than 99%.
8. How sensitive is the test?
The Babystart Pregnancy Test detects hCG in urine at a concentration of 25mlU/ml or greater.
Always read the instructions before use. Do not open the test foil pouch until you are ready to start the test.
For in vitro diagnostic use only. Not for internal use. Do not reuse. Keep out of the reach of children. Store between 2°‐30°C and do not freeze. Do not use if foil wrapper is damaged. Do not use after the ‘use by’ date printed on the foil pouch. Many women will be able to test positively as early as 10 days after conception, although hormone levels do differ greatly from woman to woman at this very early time.
