Get Rid of Your Doubts with the E.P.T. Pregnancy Test Kit

Even if you’ve been pregnant before, when you notice the symptoms of pregnancy and suspect that you’re pregnant, you generally look for confirmation using a home pregnancy test. One popular brand of home pregnancy test is the E.P.T. brand.

There are two different E.P.T. brand test kits available – the E.P.T. Plus/Minus and E.P.T. CERTAINTY. The Plus/Minus is a standard, two line test, while the CERTAINTY is a digital test. Both boast laboratory results of 99% accuracy and both are easy to use. In addition, both can be used on the first day a woman expects her period to start and can be used any time of day. There are few – if any – home urine pregnancy tests that can boast superior accuracy or ease of use.

As with any pregnancy test, the E.P.T. tests look for the presence of the human chorionic gonadotropin hormone, also known as hCG. This is a special hormone that’s produced by a woman's body only when she becomes pregnant. However, although this hormone is produced from the earliest stages of conception, it can take time for the body to produce levels that are high enough to be detected by a home pregnancy test. Typically, these levels double every two to three days, so you may need to wait at least a week from your suspected conception to get an accurate test result.

In addition, you should know that there are circumstances that can cause an inaccurate test results. For example:

  • If you’re using fertility drugs that contain hCG you can get a false positive result.
  • If you’ve recently given birth or had a miscarriage, you may get a false positive result because the test can pick up hCG from the previous pregnancy.
  • If you’ve conceived but you are not yet producing amounts of hCG that the test can detect, you can get a false negative result.
  • If you don’t perform the test correctly, you can get an inaccurate result.
  • Certain rare medical conditions can cause inaccurate test results.

The good news is that as long as you follow the testing instructions carefully and perform the test properly, you’ll probably get a result that confirms your suspicions. There are some times, however, when the result you get is unexpected. You should be aware that a false negative is far more likely than a false positive. Generally, if you get a positive result, in the absence of the specific conditions listed above, you are pregnant. If you get a negative result, your period will probably begin soon. If it hasn’t begun in three to five days, try taking the test again. If you have several negative test results in a row and your period still doesn’t begin, contact your doctor for more conclusive testing.

And finally, whenever you purchase a pregnancy test, be sure to read the included instructions completely before you remove the test itself from its protective wrapper. Follow the instructions carefully and you’ll get a result that will remove your doubts and answer the question of whether or not you’re pregnant.
