The EPT pregnancy test is one of several pregnancy test kits you can get at any pharmacy to see if you are pregnant. The reviews on this test kit are good and it can detect pregnancy with a fair degree of accuracy, especially if you test on the day of your missed period. If you test any earlier than that, you will carry the chance of having a false negative pregnancy test and will have to retest to see if you are pregnant or not.
How to read the EPT Pregnancy Test
The way you read the pregnancy test depends on whether you buy a digital or non-digital test. The directions will tell you what kind of test you have purchased and what a positive pregnancy test looks like. If you buy the cheaper test, it will show you a reference line in a small window that indicates the test is working. The larger window will give you a reading that shows a blue plus sign if you are pregnant and a blue minus sign if you are not pregnant. Even a faint plus sign is indicative of a pregnancy but probably means you are early in the pregnancy.
The price of a digital test tends to be higher, but it reads easier. It will tell you that you are pregnant by showing a “Pregnant” or “Not Pregnant” depending on the HCG level in the test. Always read the instructions of these types of tests so you don’t make a mistake and waste a perfectly good test.
