Introduction: How to Use Pregnancy Test Strips?

Pregnancy test is a quick test method that is also known as One Step HCG Urine Test which you can manually without any difficulty. Pregnancy test strips checks the presence of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), which comes in urine very early for the duration of pregnancy. There are some steps for using test strips which is very useful for the women.

Step 1:

The first step is to take a clean, dry and glass or plastic container to collect the woman’s urine. After that, women contain urine in the container. Thus, it is important that pregnancy test strip and urine have to be room temperature at 15-30°C for pregnancy testing.

Step 2:

It is need to remove the hcg test strips from the conserved pouch and Dip the strip in the urine through the arrow point to the urine. It is very important that do not let the urine level to go above the maximum line; otherwise the test will not do properly.

Step 3:

After that, Take the home pregnancy test strip out after 3 seconds and put down the strip smooth on a clean, dry, non absorbent place or surface. You can read and check results in 5 minutes but do not read outcome after more than 5 min. This test detects the presence of hcg hormone in the urine.

Step 4:

When the hcg test strip is absorbed into a urine sample, capillary act carries the sample to transfer along the covering. When hcg in the taster makes the Test Zone area of the covering, it will appear a colored line. But not appear of this colored line recommend a negative result.

Step 5:

After 5 min, if only one color band looks in the strip that indicates the test is negative means no pregnancy has been identify. If two color band lines are appear in the strip that means test is positive that you are pregnant. The color power of the pregnancy test bands may differ since several levels of pregnancy have different focus of HCG hormone. If no color line appears in the strip that mean your test is fails or invalid so you can repeat test by a new test kit.

    What happen when the strip is inserted for about more than 3 seconds, will the results be correct and what happens when someone start feeling as if she is pregnant but still do some test but showing negative, but the girl is feeling dizzy, feeling pains, weakness, headache and the rest. What can you say about it?
