First Response Australia

The FIRST RESPONSE™ Digital Pregnancy Test detects in urine the hormone your body produces during pregnancy; human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG)2

It is important to follow the instructions in the product leaflet. With the FIRST RESPONSE™ Digital Pregnancy Test you hold the test in the stream of urine for 5 seconds ONLY. It is recommended to use a watch/clock to time the 5 seconds. You may collect your urine in a clean dry cup and immerse the entire Absorbent Tip in the urine for 5 seconds only if preferred.

The FIRST RESPONSE™ Digital Pregnancy Test is designed to detect hCG as early as 6 days before your missed period (5 days before the day of the expected period). The amount of pregnancy hormone increases as pregnancy progresses2.

The FIRST RESPONSE™ Digital Pregnancy Test is >99%2 accurate from the day of the expected period in laboratory studies.
However, some pregnant women may not have detectable amounts of pregnancy hormone in their urine on the day they test or may have miscalculated the first day of their period.

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™ Digital 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 test to register a ‘YES+’ result. If upon retesting you get another ‘NO-‘ result and your period has still not started, you should call your doctor.

A ‘?’ symbol indicates an error has occurred during testing. You should retest with another FIRST RESPONSE™ Digital Pregnancy Test, carefully following all directions.

If the display screen goes blank at any time before yielding a result an error has occurred. You should retest with another
FIRST RESPONSE™ Digital Pregnancy Test, carefully following all directions.

Your result will be displayed for at least 30 minutes. Read your results within this timeframe. Once you have read your result, discard the stick. Note: this device contains a battery with a removal feature on the reverse side of the Thumb Grip. Be sure to dispose of the battery according to local regulations.

Some splashing while using the test will not damage the test, but if it becomes very wet it can become damaged. If the test becomes damaged, the Display Screen will either go blank or an error ‘?’ message will appear.

Once removed from the wrapper, the device must be used within 12 hours. Keep the device dry before use.

Only medications containing the pregnancy hormone (hCG) can affect the result. The test should not be affected by hormone therapies containing Clomiphene citrate, alcohol, pain killers, antibiotics, or the contraceptive pill. Consult your doctor on which drugs can affect the test.
