If you suspect you’re pregnant, you’re probably on an emotional roller coaster. It’s important to take a test to confirm your suspected pregnancy as soon as possible. The sooner you know, the sooner you can begin considering your options or start your prenatal care. Use the test with your very first urination of the day. First-morning urination has the highest levels of the pregnancy hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG. The QuickVue pregnancy tests detects the presence of hCG in your urine to determine pregnancy.
Remove your QuickVue pregnancy test from the package. Place it on a flat surface, like a countertop.
Collect a small amount of your urine in a clean, disposable cup.
Suck your urine up into the disposable pipette that came with your test.
Place three drops of urine into the round area marked “Sample Well” on your test. Make sure your test is still laying flat. Discard the rest of your urine sample.
Wait three minutes, then read your test. If you see one blue line located next to the “C” and no other lines, your test result is negative, or not pregnant. If you see the blue line and a purple line next to the “T” your test result is positive, or pregnant.
Wait one week and test again if you haven’t gotten your period. If this test also reveals that you are not pregnant, see your doctor. You could be pregnant and producing low levels of hCG, or you could have a medical condition that’s affecting your periods.
