Right at the beginning of pregnancy, the body produces the hormone called hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), which is responsible for maintaining the pregnancy. In the first weeks of pregnancy, the hCG concentration in the urine rises continuously. It will double about every two days. The maximum level is reached between the eighth and tenth week of pregnancy.
However, our early pregnancy test can already detect hCG from a concentration of 10 mIU/ml in the urine, which is reached on about the 10th day after fertilisation of the egg.
How reliable and safe is this test?
This early pregnancy test has a scientifically proven accuracy of more than 99%, so the reliability of the test is exceptionally high. Nevertheless, sometimes the result cannot be accurately estimated. If, for example, a negative result is shown at an early stage or before the expected menstrual flow, we recommend repeating the test after 3 days and using morning urine - it contains a higher concentration of hCG.
False-positive results can occur if the test is used incorrectly and in rare cases due to a medical disease (such as ovarian cysts or tumours). A recent birth, a miscarriage, the menopause and taking medication containing hCG can also influence the result.
What do I have to know when using the test?
You can use this test from the tenth day after the conception.
If you take the test before your period stops, i.e. at a very early stage, pregnancy will only be detected by the test in 74% of cases. This is due to the still very low hCG concentration in the 4 days before the period and individual fluctuations in the body's hCG production.
We therefore recommend using the first morning urine. It contains a higher concentration of hCG.
I have the result - what do I do now?
In case of a positive result - 2 clearly visible lines are displayed - please contact your gynaecologist to have the pregnancy confirmed. In case of an actual pregnancy, they will assist you for the best possible progress.
If the test result is negative and you do not have your period, we recommend that you retest after 3 days (with morning urine). If the test is still negative and you still do not have your period, please contact your doctor. She or he will investigate what is causing your period to stop.
