Ovulation/Pregnancy Test Strips

Clinical Guard Pregnancy Test Strips

Clinical Guard Urine Pregnancy Test Strips are accurate and easy to use, and are exactly what you need when determining if you are pregnant. There is no suspense like the suspense of not knowing if you are pregnant or not. By using Clinical Guard Pregnancy Test Strips, you can rest assured knowing the answer to this important question. Taking just a few minutes to show results, Clinical Guard Pregnancy Test Strips have a sensitivity of 25 mlU, or 25 ng/L, and will show accurate results at about 2 weeks after conception.

How do Clinical Guard Pregnancy Test Strips work?

Clinical Guard Pregnant Test Strips work by detecting the presence of the hormone, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, also known as hCG. If you are pregnant, hCG is released into the bloodstream, and the substances found on the pregnancy test strip will bind to the hCG, creating a positive result. Thus, if hCG is detected in your bloodstream, it is a good indicator that you are pregnant. 

 

How to use Clinical Guard Pregnancy Test Strips

Follow these step-by-step instructions to ensure the most accurate results:

 

  1. Remove a pregnancy test strip from the package.

  2. Collect urine into a container. It needs to be deep enough to dip the pregnancy test strip into it.

  3. Insert the pregnancy test strip with the arrow pointing down, and be careful not to insert the strip past the max line. If this happens, simply use a new test strip.

  4. Allow the test strip to sit in the urine for 3 seconds.

  5. Remove and place the test strip on a flat surface for 5 minutes

  6. Check the test stip after 5 minutes (make sure you carefully watch the time for 5 minutes to ensure accuracy; anything more than 5 minutes and you may get a false positive or negative)

  7. When checking the reading, look at the pink lines. A positive reading shows 2 pink lines while a negative reading will show only one pink line.

How do I know if the pregnancy test strip is positive or negative?

For a positive test, there will be distinct color zones in both the Control and Test Zones. For a negative test, there will be only one color band appearing in the Control Zone, and no band found in the Test Zone.

I got my results back. Now what?

If your pregnancy test result is positive, you should contact your physician to confirm your pregnancy. Although pregnancy tests are highly accurate, it is a good idea to confirm the pregnancy, to ensure you did not experience a false positive.

If your pregnancy test results show a negative reading, but you think you are pregnant, repeat the test after a few days. Sometimes things occur, such as delayed menstruation, that could delay a positive reading.

In both a positive or a negative test result, it is advised you contact your physician to obtain further advice..

Is there a chance my pregnancy test is wrong?

Although unlikely, there is always a chance that your test is either a false negative or a false positive. False negatives are more common than false positives. Here are the most common reasons for false negatives and false positives.

 

Reasons for false negatives:

  1. You tested too early.

  2. You waited more than 5 minutes to read the pregnancy test strip.

  3. You did not completely saturate the test strip in urine.

  4. You drank a lot of water before testing, and your urine is diluted.

Reasons for false positives:

  1. You are using fertility drugs that have hCG in them.

  2. You are on the hCG diet.

  3. You are sick and have cancer, liver disease, or other medical conditions, such as choriocarcinoma and IGA deficiencies.

The line on my pregnancy test is faint. What does that mean?

In most cases, it means you are pregnant.

This is one of the most commonly asked questions regarding pregnancy test strips, and for good reason. It can be confusing when the hCG line is not as dark and easily distinguishable as it could be. The darker the pink line, the more hCG is present in the urine. As a result, even if the line is faint, it is indicative of a positive pregnancy reading. The more time that passes after conception, the more hCG will be released in the body, and the darker the pink lines will be on the pregnancy test strips.

If you would like a more certain answer, you will want to take multiple pregnancy test strips a few days apart, to ensure you are getting an accurate reading. Also, blood tests administered by your physician will be able to conclusively tell you whether you are pregnant or not.

When is it best to take a pregnancy test reading?

Clinical Guard Pregnancy Test Strips are designed to be able to detect pregnancy about 6-8 weeks after ovulation, or about 1 week after a missed period. The more time that passes after, the more hCG is released, and the easier is it for the pregnancy test strips to detect pregnancy.

How much are ClinicalGuard Pregnancy Test Strips?

Typically, pregnancy test strips cost up to $20. At just $7.99 for 25 test strips or $5.59 for 10 test strips, Clinical Guard offers some of the most affordable and quality pregnancy test strips available.
