Why a pregnancy blood test?
The SELFCheck Pregnancy Blood Test is a rapid home test for the detection of raised levels (>25 IU/L) of human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) from a finger prick blood sample in just 5 minutes. Urine pregnancy test kits are usually able to detect hCG about 1 week after a missed period, but sensitive blood tests such as SELFCheck can show if you are pregnant earlier than most urine tests.
Blood tests can be more reliable than urine tests for showing that you are pregnant and, for this reason, are widely used in hospital labs to confirm a urine pregnancy test. Unlike urine pregnancy tests, blood tests can be used at any time of the day and are unaffected by dilution from drinks. Because of this, you may get a positive result with SELFCheck before you would with a a urine test.
An early pregnancy test result can help you consider changes to your lifestyle such as stopping smoking or drinking alcohol. You should speak with your doctor if you find out that you are pregnant before stopping or changing any medication.
It is important to take into account that using any blood or urine pregnancy test too early or, unknowingly misinterpreting the instructions, may result in an increased risk of false positive or false negative results.
How reliable is the test?
Comparison of the SELFCheck Pregnancy Blood Test with a reference laboratory method shows an overall agreement of at least 98%. Although this test is reliable, it is known that all pregnancy tests, whether home test or laboratory test, may give a small number of false positive or false negative results. The same device used in the SELFCheck pregnancy blood test is also used in hospitals. Nevertheless, due to the increased complexity of a home pregnancy blood test compared to a traditional urine test, more skill is required to perform the test correctly. It is therefore even more important to thoroughly read and understand the instructions provided with a home blood test to ensure the correct amount of blood and diluent is added to the test device.
How quickly do I get a result?
You will get a result in 5 minutes.
If your result is positive, you should consult your doctor to discuss pregnancy and the next steps. Early prenatal care is important for a healthy pregnancy. Please take into consideration that not every pregnancy proceeds to term and the risk of miscarriage is highest during the first couple of months. For this reason, it is possible to get a positive result with an early pregnancy test but find that a subsequent scan at 5 to 6 weeks is negative. The level of hCG can remain elevated for some time after a miscarriage.
