How to Read a First Response EPT

Save

When a woman becomes pregnant, her body begins to produce a hormone called hCG. A pregnancy test measures the amount of hCG that is in the urine. Most tests cannot measure hCG until after the first day that a woman misses her period. However, the First Response EPT (early pregnancy test) detects hCG levels in urine up to 5 days before the missed period, making it the pregnancy test of choice for those anxious for the results. Accurate reading of the results of a First Response EPT is simple when you follow these rules.

  • Lay the pregnancy test on a flat surface with good lighting.

  • Look at the oval results window. If you see one pink line, the result of your EPT is negative. That means that you are probably not pregnant.

  • Take the test again in 7 days if your period still has not started. If the test still reads negative, see your gynecologist.

  • Looking at the oval results window. If you see two pink lines, your results are positive. That means that you're pregnant. Even if one pink line is a faint pink, a second pink line reveals positive levels of hCG.

  • Make an appointment with an obstetrician or gynecologist immediately if your test reads positive. Pre-natal care is vitally important.
