Pregnancy test question

First off, how reliable is the first response pregnancy tests, and secondly, if 2 say positive and one say negative, or vice versa, what should I do?


P.S. I haven't tested yet, I just barely bought a 3 pack of the first response, which is why I was asking how reliable it was. I still have a couple days before I can actually get a more accurate reading.

  • You're pregnant. Call the doctor.

  • False positives are incredibly rare.

  • You're probably expecting, but if you want to test again, use your first urine of the morning, which contains the highest concentration of HCG, the pregnancy hormone.

  • If two come out positive and one comes out negative, you are most likely pregnant. And they are pretty accurate in my experience.

  • She said she hasn't tested yet.

    The tests are very reliable as long as you have missed your period...just like with any other brand. If you get a positive at all, even if it's followed by a negative then you should make an appointment. False positive are very rare. If I were you, I'd take one the day before my period was due, the day it's due and then wait a few days if I still haven't gotten a positive.

  • Does it not say on the box??

    Yeah right there across the blue ribbon. Over 99% accurate. Assuming you follow the directions correctly, you should trust the test. Use first urine of the morning. Pee in a cup if you have to then you can dip them. It helps especially if you don't have to pee alot. And if you want to use more than one test.
