Q: How does the test work?
A: The WH Accu One Step Pregnancy Test detects a hormone in your urine that your body produces during pregnancy (human chorionic gonadotropin, hCG-). The amount of pregnancy hormone increases as pregnancy progresses.
Q: How soon after I suspect that I am pregnant can I take the test?
A: You can test your urine as early as the first day you miss your period. You can perform the test anytime of the day; however, if you are pregnant, first morning urine contains the most pregnancy hormone.
Q: Do I have to test with first morning urine?
A: Although you can test any time of the day your first morning urine specimen is usually the most concentrated of the day and would have the most hCG in it.
Q: How accurate is the test?
A: In both laboratory and consumer clinical studies, the WH Accu One Step Pregnancy Test has been proved to be greater than 99% accurate.
Q: Which factors may affect the test result?
A: Drugs which contain hCG (such as Pregnyl, Profasi, Pergonal, APL) can give a false positive result. Alcohol, oral contraceptives, painkillers, antibiotics or hormone therapies that do not contain hCG should not affect the test result.
Q: What should I do if the result shows that I am pregnant?
A: It means that your urine contains hCG and you are probably pregnant. See your doctor to confirm that you are pregnant and to discuss the steps you should take.
Q: Does the result mean anything other than normal pregnancy if it shows that I am
A: A number of medical conditions other than pregnancy, including ovarian cyst or ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus) can cause elevated levels of hCG, which may give rise to false positive results.
Q: How do I know that the test was run properly?
A: The appearance of a red line in the control window (C) tells you that you followed the test procedure properly and the proper amount of urine was absorbed.
Q: What should I do if the result shows that I am not pregnant?
A: It means that no hCG has been detected in your urine and probably you are not pregnant. If you do not start your period within a week of its due date, repeat the test with a new test. If you receive the same result after repeating the test and you still do not get your period, you should see your doctor.
Q: How much hCG in my urine can able to be detected?
A: WH Accu Pregnancy Test will detect hCG concentrations of 25mIU/ml or more. HCG levels normally reach 100 mIU/ml on the first day of a missed period.
