What is the First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test?

The First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test is a pregnancy test which can tell you whether or not you’re pregnant as early as 6 days before your missed period. This product is First Response’s bestselling pregnancy test and has been voted Best Pregnancy Test for 2 years in a row by trusted pregnancy and parenting brand, What to Expect.


Why is this pregnancy test right for me?

The First Response Early Result test is perfect for those who just can’t wait to find out whether they’re pregnant. These tests can detect all forms of the pregnancy hormone up to 6 days before your missed period, so you can see your potentially life changing news as early as possible. These First Response Pregnancy Tests are over 99% accurate when taken on the day of your expected period, so you can feel confident in your test results, whatever they may be.


How early can I use this pregnancy test?

You can use First Response Early Result tests as early as 6 days before your missed period. This means that if you work out when your period is due to start, you can test up to 5 days before this date and still see accurate test results.


How do pregnancy tests work?

Pregnancy tests work by detecting the presence of the pregnancy hormone (hCG) in your urine. Your body begins to make this hormone as soon as you become pregnant, and the levels of hCG in your body will double every 72 hours until 8 – 11 weeks into your pregnancy. If your pregnancy test detects hCG in your urine then it will show a positive result, telling you that you’re pregnant and should go to see your doctor to discuss your next steps.


How to use this First Response Pregnancy Test

There are 2 ways you can use your First Response Pregnancy Test, and each will give accurate results, so the way you want to test is entirely up to you. Begin by removing the pregnancy test from its wrapper and removing the protective cap from the absorbent end of the test, then take your test in one of the following ways:

  • Use the test by holding the absorbent end in your urine stream for 5 seconds only. Keep the absorbent tip of the test pointing downwards, with the result window facing away from the body. Do not get the main body of the testing stick wet.
  • Collect a sample of your urine in a clean, dry cup or glass. Dip the entirety of the absorbent tip into the urine sample, hold it there for 5 seconds only and then remove. Do not get the main body of the testing stick wet.

When you’ve finished taking your test, place the protective cap back over the absorbent tip, keeping the tip pointing downwards. Place the stick on a flat, dry surface with the Easy Read Result Window facing up as you wait for your results.


How long will it take to see my results?

It will take 3 minutes for the pregnancy test to work, and during this time you may see the pink colour moving along the result window. This means the test is working properly. Keep your test on a flat surface as you wait.


What do my results mean?

After 3 minutes your results will show in the Easy Read Result Window. You’ll see two possible results:

  • Pregnant – If your test is positive, you’ll notice two pink lines in the result window. One line may be lighter than the other
  • Not pregnant – If your test is negative you will see only one pink line in the result window


What should I do once I have my test results?

Your next step will differ depending on your pregnancy test results. If your test shows that you are pregnant, you should make an appointment with your doctor to confirm your result and discuss what to do next. If your test shows that you are not pregnant and you have tested before the first day of your expected period, it could still be too early to detect your pregnancy hormone and you should take another test when your period is expected to begin. If your period hasn’t begun within 7 days of its expected date and you still receive a negative test result, speak to a healthcare professional for advice.


How accurate are these test results?

When you take your First Response Early Detection pregnancy test from the first day of your expected period, your results will be over 99% accurate. Although you can use this test up to 5 days before your expected period, your test may be less effective the earlier you test. This is why many women who test early choose to take a second test on the day of their expected period, to confirm their results with more accuracy. Laboratory testing of these First Response tests saw the following results:


Days Before Expected Period Accuracy When Detecting Pregnancy Hormone Levels
5 Days 76%
4 Days 96%
3 Days >99%
2 Days >99%
1 Day >99%
Day of expected period >99%
