What is the Clearblue Digital Early Detection Pregnancy Test?
The Clearblue Digital Early Detection Pregnancy Test is a pregnancy test which can give you accurate results as early as 5 days before your missed period! If you think you may be pregnant and can’t wait to find out for sure, this pregnancy test will give you the answers you’re looking for in clear words, showing the words “pregnant” or “not pregnant” on the screen when it’s done. As well as that, the unique smart countdown will show on the digital screen as you wait for your results, so you’ll know exactly when your test is done.
When should I use these pregnancy tests?
This Clearblue Pregnancy Test can tell you whether you’re pregnant up to 5 days before your missed period, which is 4 days before the day your period is due to start. For best results, track your monthly cycles as you are trying to conceive, so you’ll know when you’re ready to take your test.
What time of day is best to take a pregnancy test?
If you decide to test in the days before your missed period, you should make sure to use your first urine of the day for most accurate results. If you’re testing from the day of your expected period, you can test at any time of the day with accurate results. However, be sure that you don’t drink a lot of water or other fluid before you take the test.
Why would I need a pack of 2 pregnancy tests?
Some women choose to use two pregnancy tests to confirm their results so they can be absolutely sure that they are or are not pregnant. For example, although these Clearblue Digital Early Detection Pregnancy Tests can show that you are pregnant up to 5 days before your missed period, the tests are over 99% accurate if you test from the day of your expected period. This is why some women choose to test earlier in the 5-day window and then confirm their results on the first day of their expected period. Remember to always speak to your doctor if you’re unsure about the results of your pregnancy tests.
How do pregnancy tests work?
Pregnancy tests work by detecting the presence of a hormone which increases rapidly during early pregnancy. This hormone is called hCG, and your Clearblue pregnancy test can detect even tiny amounts of this hormone in your urine. This is what makes it possible to test for pregnancy so early in your cycle.
How to take your Clearblue Digital Early Detection Pregnancy Test
When it’s time to take your test, start by removing the test from its foil wrapper and removing the blue cap, exposing the absorbent tip. There are two ways to take your Clearblue Pregnancy Test, and both will provide you accurate results. You can choose to hold the test in your urine stream, or test using a urine sample:
- To test in your urine stream, simply place the absorbent tip of the pregnancy test directly into your urine stream for 5 seconds. Take care not to get the rest of the testing stick wet and keep the absorbent tip pointing downward.
- To test in a urine sample, first collect your urine in a clean, dry container. Then, hold the absorbent tip of your pregnancy test in the urine sample for 20 seconds, keeping the tip pointing downward.
Once you have taken the test, replace the cap and lay the test stick flat as you wait for around 3 minutes for your results. The countdown on the digital screen will show you when your results are ready to read.
How to read your pregnancy test results
Once your test is done, the digital countdown will disappear and your results will be shown clearly on the screen. If you’re pregnant, you’ll see the word “pregnant” on the digital screen, and if you are not pregnant you will see the words “not pregnant”.
How accurate are Clearblue pregnancy tests?
You can take this Clearblue Early Detection Pregnancy Test as early as 4 days before your expected period, but this will affect how accurate your test will be. This test is over 99% accurate if taken from the first day of your expected period, but is less effective in the days before. Clinical testing showed that the percentage of pregnant women who showed a positive pregnancy test result on the days leading up to their expected period were as follows:
- One day before your expected period – 95%
- Two days before your expected period – 90%
- Three days before your expected period – 82%
- Four days before your expected period – 51%
