WHICH PREGNANCY TEST BEST SUITS YOUR NEEDS?

Whether you’re hoping for a positive or a negative result, you deserve to get it as quickly and as accurately as possible. Here’s everything you need to know on how to achieve just that.

DOCTOR’S PREGNANCY TEST VS. HOME PREGNANCY TEST

Is a home pregnancy test just as trustworthy as your doctor?

The common assumption is that obviously, a doctor’s pregnancy test is more accurate because a doctor has access to a laboratory and a microscope and other fancy medical equipment. How can a flimsy little strip or a piece of plastic live up to that?

Both a doctor’s pregnancy test and a home pregnancy test work by detecting the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your body. hCG is a hormone that is only present in pregnant women. Doctors find out if you’re pregnant by finding hCG in your urine sample or your blood sample. Home pregnancy tests require your urine sample.

The hCG is either there or it’s not—it’s that simple. It’s not rocket science. A flimsy little strip or a piece of plastic may not have a medical degree, but in this task, it is just as efficient as a doctor.

WHY CHOOSE A HOME PREGNANCY TEST OVER A DOCTOR’S PREGNANCY TEST?

It’s more convenient.

Test wherever you want. The fact that it’s called a home pregnancy test doesn’t mean you can’t do it at work, at the mall, at a restaurant… or any place with a ladies’ room. There’s no need to schedule a doctor’s appointment either, and then try to beat the traffic to make it on time.

You can also test whenever you want. But we advise testing with the first urine of the day, because if you are pregnant, your morning urine will contain the highest concentration of hCG.

The privacy of it all.

There’s something very exciting about being the first person in your life to find out whether or not you’re pregnant. Not your doctor, not a nurse, not a med tech, but you. Cry tears of joy in the privacy of your own bathroom upon reading your results… sing in the shower…dance in your bathtub! Home pregnancy tests give you a different level of control and freedom.

BUT NOT ALL HOME PREGNANCY TESTS ARE CREATED EQUAL

Strips

A strip pregnancy test is exactly what its name says it is. It’s a strip of paper covered in plastic. Collect your urine in a cup, then dip the strip into the sample. After a few minutes, two lines will appear if you’re pregnant, one line will appear if you’re not.

Cassettes

Cassette means case or container. The cassette pregnancy test is a mini case that holds the hCG detector. Collect your urine in a cup, then using the dropper included in the box, put several drops of urine inside the cassette. After a few minutes, two lines will appear if you’re pregnant, one line will appear if you’re not.

Midstreams

Simply hold the device in your urine stream. The one-step midstream tests will collect and test your urine at the same time. After three minutes, it will tell you whether or not you’re pregnant. Most brands show two lines for positive and one line for negative, but Clearblue gives the advantage of a plus sign for positive and minus sign for negative results.

All pregnancy tests created by Clearblue are midstream tests because this type is the most convenient, most hygienic and the easiest to use.

GET OVER 99% ACCURACY WITH CLEARBLUE’S HOME PREGNANCY TESTS

Traditionally, you should test on the day your period is due, because if you’re pregnant, that’s when the hCG levels in your body are high enough to be detected in your urine. But with Clearblue’s high sensitivity tests (which means it can detect even low levels of hCG), you can test up to four days early. Our 99%+ accuracy guarantee, however, applies only when you test on the day you’re expecting your period.
