SELFCheck Pregnancy Blood Test is a simple and reliable way to find out if you are pregnant and is frequently used in hospitals to confirm a positive urine pregnancy test. Urine pregnancy test kits are usually able to detect hCG about 1 week after a missed period, but sensitive blood tests such as SELFCheck, can show if you are pregnant just a few days after conception. An early pregnancy test result can help women consider lifestyle and health changes such as stopping smoking or drinking alcohol but should be encouraged to speak with their GP before stopping or changing any medication.Key features of SELFCheck Pregnancy Blood Test Simple and reliable For early detection of raised levels of the pregnancy hormone Finger prick blood sample in just 5 minutes Can show if you are pregnant just a few days after conception Designed to be easy to use.
How does a SELFCheck Pregnancy Blood Test work ?When a woman becomes pregnant, her body begins to produce hCG, a hormone which is released into the blood where its concentration rises over time. The SELFCheck Pregnancy Blood Test uses a pair of specific antibodies to detect this hCG hormone and gives a positive result when the hCG level in the blood is higher than 25 IU/L as determined against the World Health Organisation (W.H.O) reference standard. This is the same hormone detected in urine pregnancy test kits.
Isn't it easier to pee on a stick as I would usually do?Yes! But the finger-prick test is not difficult either. The SELFCheck Pregnancy blood test has been independently assessed by scientists and doctors to prove that they provide reliable results, meet UK and EU regulations and designed to be easy to use. Urine pregnancy test kits are usually able to detect hCG about 1 week after a missed period, but sensitive blood tests such as SELFCheck, can show if you are pregnant just a few days after conception.
