The FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result Pregnancy Test has unique patented technology to provide results five days before your missed period.
FIRST RESPONSE® is over 99% accurate at detecting typical pregnancy hormone levels from the day of your expected period.2 FIRST RESPONSE® ... Discovering ways to be the one to tell you first.
So why know earlier? Knowing sooner allows you to make important decisions when they really count, such as adopting a healthier lifestyle in the critical first stages of your baby's development. Ultimately, finding out earlier lets you take better care of yourself and your baby - sooner.
From the earliest moments of conception, your body is already starting to undergo monumental changes. One of the very first is production of the pregnancy hormone, hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin), which can be detected in your blood and in your urine.
The amount of hCG in your body increases rapidly. It doubles every 36 to 48 hours as your pregnancy progresses, reaching its peak at eight to ten weeks. Pregnancy tests work by detecting hCG levels in your urine. When a woman's urine comes in contact with the specially treated strip on a pregnancy test stick, special markers appear within minutes, indicating whether or not hCG, the pregnancy hormone, has been detected.
Some at-home pregnancy tests are unable to detect hCG in urine sooner than the first day of a missed period. Advancements have enabled some at-home pregnancy tests to detect hCG five days before a missed period. The FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result Pregnancy Test detects hCG in urine five days before your missed period. FIRST RESPONSE® is over 99% accurate at detecting typical pregnancy hormone levels from the day of your expected period.
Pregnancy is truly a life-changing event. Knowing earlier if you are pregnant or not allows you to make important decisions such as adopting healthier lifestyle choices. You can begin taking better care of yourself and your baby sooner, in the critical first stages of your baby's development.

When to use the test
The FIRST RESPONSE® test is so sensitive that most pregnant women have enough of
the pregnancy hormone, hCG (human
chorionic gonadotropin), to be detected as early as 4 days before their expected period. For example, if you expect your
period on the 21st day of the month, you can test as early as the 17th day of the month. You can use the FIRST RESPONSE®
Early Result Pregnancy Test any time of the day. You do not have to use the first morning urine. Generally, however, your
first morning urine contains the highest level of the pregnancy hormone.
Remove the test stick from the foil wrapper and take off the Overcap.
Holding the test stick by the Thumb Grip with the Absorbent Tip pointing downward and the Result Window facing away from your body, place the Absorbent Tip in your urine stream for 5 seconds only. (You may also collect your urine in a clean, dry cup and immerse the entire Absorbent Tip in the urine for 5 seconds only.)
With the Absorbent Tip still pointing downward, replace the Overcap* and lay the stick on a flat surface with the Result Window facing up. *Replacement of the Overcap is not necessary for the proper functioning of the test.
You may soon see a pink color moving across the Result Window to indicate the
test is working.
Reading the result
TWO PINK LINES in the Result Window
One line may be lighter than the other
Q: What do I do if the result is positive (pregnant)? A: Remember, this test is not intended
to replace your doctor‘s diagnosis. A
positive (pregnant) test result shows that
the pregnancy hormone (hCG) was
detected. See your doctor to confirm
that you are pregnant.
ONE PINK LINE in the Result Window
Q: What do I do if the result is negative
(not pregnant)? A: You may not be pregnant, or it may be too early to tell. If you
do not get your period within 7 days, you should retest with
another FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result Pregnancy Test. It is
possible that you miscalculated the length of your cycle or your
urine may not have had enough pregnancy hormone for the
FIRST RESPONSE® Test to give a positive result. If you retest and
again no hCG is found, and your period still has not started, you
should call your doctor.
Questions and Answers
Q: How does the test work? A: The FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result Pregnancy Test detects in urine the hormone your body makes during pregnancy: hCG
(human chorionic gonadotropin). The FIRST RESPONSE® Test is so sensitive that most women have enough hCG to be detected as
early as 4 days before their expected period. The amount of pregnancy hormone increases as pregnancy progresses. In clinical
testing, FIRST RESPONSE® detected the hormone levels in 69% of women 4 days before their expected period, in 83% of women 3
days before their expected period, in 93% of women 2 days before their expected period, and in 93% of women 1 day before their
Q: When can I do the test? A: You can test as early as 4 days before you expect your
period. You can use the FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result Pregnancy Test
any time of the day. You don’t have to use first morning urine.
Generally, however, your first morning urine contains the highest
level of the pregnancy hormone.
Q: How accurate is the test? A: In studies of the FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result
Pregnancy Test with urine samples representative of both pregnant and
subjects, laboratory technicians obtained the correct expected result
in more than 99%* of the samples, and consumers obtained
the correct expected result in 98.4% of the samples.
accurate at detecting the pregnancy hormone. However, some pregnant
women may not have detectable amounts of pregnancy hormone in their
urine on the first day of the missed period or may have miscalculated
the first day of their period.
Q: I have waited longer than 3 minutes, and still there are no lines in the Result Window. Is there anything wrong? A: Your result should appear within 3 minutes. There should be at least one pink line in the Result Window at 5 minutes to indicate
that the test is completed and you have done it correctly. If not, the
test is invalid. This could be due to insufficient urine on the Absorbent Tip or not holding the device with the Absorbent Tip pointing downward while replacing the Overcap. You should retest
with another device, carefully following all directions.
Q: Will the result change if left standing for a certain period of time? A: The test result should be read as soon as possible after
waiting the 3 minutes. A positive result will last for at least 48
negative result should not be read after 10 minutes.
Q: Do any drugs or medications affect the test? A: Only medications containing the pregnancy hormone (hCG) can affect the result (e.g A.P.L1, Pregnyl3 , Profasi 4 and Pergonal 4 ).
The test should not be affected by hormone therapies containing Clomiphene citrate (e.g. Clomid 2 , and Serophene 5 ), alcohol, painkillers, antibiotics, or the contraceptive pill.
