What is a Suresign Pregnancy Strip?
This Suresign Pregnancy Strip is 99% accurate if taken from the day your missed period is due, and is sensitive enough to detect pregnancy as early as 4 days before your missed period. This simple, one-step testing kit includes two pregnancy strips to provide you with easy-to-read results in as little as 3 minutes.
How to use this product
You can use this pregnancy strip 4 days before your missed period, but for the most accurate results, use the day after your period is due. It’s recommended to use this test with your first urine of the day as it will be the most concentrated. To start, remove the pregnancy strip from the foil and use it within 1 hour.
Urinate into a clean, dry container and place the strip into the urine for at least 10 seconds, but do not dip past the MAX line.
After 10 seconds, remove the test from the urine and set a timer for 3 minutes. As the test begins to work, you should see a reddish-purple line form in the results window, indicating that the test is working as it should. You must read the results within 10 minutes and disregard any results after this time.
Reading the test result is simple. You are probably pregnant if 2 distinct coloured lines appear in the results window. They don’t have to match, for example, one may be lighter than the other. If only 1 coloured line appears in the results window, you are probably not pregnant. If no coloured lines appear and the testing window is blank, this means that the test has not worked.
How does a pregnancy test work?
Pregnancy tests work by detecting a hormone in your urine known as chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) that your body only creates when you’re pregnant. If HCG is detected, the test will show a positive result; if HCG isn’t detected, the test will show a negative result. This hormone is released when a fertilised egg attaches itself onto the lining of your uterus, marking the beginning of pregnancy.
How to increase your 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.
Store between 4-30°C 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. Dispose of used tests hygienically in domestic waste.
