What is Babystart ECOstrip Pregnancy Test Midstream?
This Babystart ECOstrip Pregnancy Test Midstream is 99% accurate if taken from the day your missed period is due, but you can test 10 days after you’ve had sex. This simple testing kit includes two pregnancy tests to provide you with easy-to-read results in as little as 1-5 minutes. Thanks to the clever design of this test, it has a much smaller environmental footprint due to the Babystart ECOstrip.
How to use this product
Always use Babystart ECOstrip Pregnancy Test Midstream exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. Start by removing 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’s 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.
Reading the results is simple. If the test is positive, meaning you’re likely to be pregnant, a red line in both the test (heart-shaped) and control (circular) window will appear. It’s still a positive result if the lines are faint. If the test is negative, meaning you’re probably not pregnant, there will be a single line in the control window.
How can I increase my chances of conceiving?
If you’re trying for a baby, there are things you can do that can increase your chances of conceiving. You should aim to have sex around the time that you’re ovulating (about 12 - 16 days before your period starts, but you can take an ovulation test for a more accurate reading) or every 2 - 3 days. Try to maintain a healthy weight, stop smoking, reduce your alcohol intake and take a folic acid supplement each day.
Can you have a false reading on a pregnancy test?
It’s possible to have a positive reading on a pregnancy test even if you aren’t pregnant - this is why it’s advised to wait at least a week after your period was due to have the most accurate reading.
A false positive may be because of a chemical pregnancy, where the egg is unable to implant very early on; an ectopic pregnancy, a recent miscarriage or abortion, and certain medicines or medical conditions. It’s best to get your pregnancy confirmed by a medical professional before accepting the news to avoid any disappointment.
Store in a cool, dry place out of sight and reach of children. Do not use after the expiry date, referring to the last day of the month stated on the packaging.
