First Response Pregnancy Test

What First Response Says:

Now you can find out if you're pregnant even before you miss your period with the FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result Pregnancy Test!

FIRST RESPONSE® allows you to get results sooner than some other pregnancy tests on the market. A whole 5 days Sooner than the first day of your missed period. So why wait?

For 20 years, FIRST RESPONSE has been helping women determine if they are pregnant. FIRST RESPONSE Early Result Pregnancy Test is among the most sensitive pregnancy tests and detects the pregnancy hormone, hCG at significantly lower levels than some other tests. In fact, it can be used five days sooner than the day of the missed period.

Our Review:

With so many pregnancy tests available it's not easy to know which is the most sensitive and reliable test that one should use. The earlier a woman knows that she is pregnant the sooner she can start planning changes in her life style so that it is healthy, leading to an uneventful pregnancy. One of the hormones that indicate pregnancy is the human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) hormone. This is hormone is produced in the female body approximately 8 to 10 days after conception when the embryo starts to settle in the lining of the uterus. A hCG beta blood test is so sensitive that it can identify pregnancy as early as 10 days after conception.

Knowing whether or not she is pregnant make a whole lot of difference to her mental outlook. The waiting period till she misses her periods and anxiety due to the lingering probability that it might have been delayed are all gone. If the test is positive she knows for sure and can celebrate the event joyfully, if not; well, she can try again. In these fast paced days, women are very much interested in pregnancy tests that give fast and reliable results well before they miss their periods.

How First Response works:

The First Response (Pregnancy Test) detects the presence or absence of the hormone human Chorionic Gonadotropin(hCG) in the blood(serum) or urine of the patient. Of the many hormones that are present in the human body the presence of this particular hormone signifies pregnancy. The First Response test can detect the occurrence of this hormone even at levels as relatively as low as 6.3 mlU/mL. The test is simple and can be carried out at home with a small sample of your first morning urine. The test has a 99% accuracy in the detection the hormone in lab collected samples and about 98.4% tests carried out by patients. How is First Response different from other tests like E.P.T.

First Response pregnancy test differs from other tests like E.P.T in that it gives you results .before. you miss your periods, as early as five days in advance, whereas tests like E.P.T. give you results .after. you miss your periods. That's a significant difference. With First Response you find out if you are pregnant and end a period of anxiety whilst in the latter you confirm what you already suspect or at times what you know for sure.

First response for me has to be the most reliable pregnancy test on the market. Not only is it reasonably priced this test can be used up to 4 days before your period is due. I used this test 3 days before my period was due and it was at night and i got a clear positive result. I find this test reliable, good value for money and quick and simple to use. I've never had a false positive or a false negetive result while using this test and i would reccomend it to all. Also if you have any problems while using this test they have a good website with questions and answers and they also have a helpline. Not that i've ever had the need to use. Excellent all round

I wasn't even 4 wks pregnant when this test gave me my + result! I've been told to use first morning urine when taking a pregnancy test to get better results. I took the test mid afternoon and I got a faint line (visible from about 10 ft away). My hcg numbers weren't even in the triple digits yet (I had them checked a week later). If you want accurate results...early, then buy this pregnancy test!!!

I started using this brand because of the whole "five days sooner" ads. I was pregnant in the spring, and I took advantage of the early testing period, and it showed a very, very faint pink line. As it got closer to my period, subsequent tests showed a darker pink line. Nature took an unfortunate turn a few weeks later, but thankfully, I ended up having to use these tests again in early fall. I experienced the same faint pink lines that grew darker as time went by, and now I'm expecting in June! These are very simple to use- just take out of the wrapper, put it in the urine stream, then put the protective tip on the end. I have found that positive results don't usually take the entire 5 minute wait unless you are testing very early. I've never had an evaporation line with any negative test from First Response. I definitely like getting these in multi-pack boxes!! Don't get just one-you will be too tempted to test again regardless of the result.

First Response comes in a pink and white box of standard size. Inside you will find a "stick" i.e. the test itself and a small instruction sheet which I recommend you read at least twice before you start and the actual directions for usage at least 3 times. These things are too expensive to risk doing it wrong. The stick is cased in foil to keep it fresh and out of exposure to moisture, check the test first to make sure it's ok . It's a very simple test to perform and you can use it any time of the day or collect it, same as most other brands really. Make sure you have the test the right way up when you urinate on the stick and keep it in for the right amount of time, this is the one time in your life you really don't want to be second guessing if you did it right. If you follow the test instructions properly then you will be able to read your result in 3 minutes. If you are using this test the day you are due or later then you will probably see an instant result but wait the three minutes to be sure it wasn't a strange test defect. If you are pregnant you will see two pink vertical lines if not then you will only see one. If you see none then the test wasn't performed right or was defective. No matter why you are testing (trying or an opps) I recommend you buy the double box. You can buy either one test which will cost between £7 and £8 or the double which will set you back about £11-£12 from an average chemists. If you buy the double and you test positive you can double check for added peace of mind a couple of days later and if it's negative you can either save the second for next month or retest a week later. It really is that simple - at least the actually testing bit is.

Highly recommended. Easy to use, easy to read. I must admit I waited until I missed my period by two weeks before using the test though (just to make sure it was worth opening those expensive tests and I hadn't had an early miscarriage). For me, pink lines were very dark and appeared in less than 5 seconds.

love this test. I got a BFP on 8 DPO. It was a faint/pink line and even better the next day. I will always use this test!!!

Elizabeth B, Nevada, MO. September 19th , 2004

I took 2 First Response tests 4 days before I was supposed to get my period. I got faint lines on both tests. I went to the Dr. a few days later and found out that I was indeed pregnant. I would recommend this product.
