How to use Clearblue Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test
Please always read the instruction leaflet carefully before taking a pregnancy test.
If you're testing from the day you expect your period, you can test with urine from any time of the day. If you're testing early, use the first urine of the day.
When ready to test, remove the pregnancy test stick from the foil wrapper and take off the blue cap. Use the test right away.
Simply hold the absorbent Color Change Tip in your urine stream, or in a sample of your urine collected in a clean dry container, for just 5 seconds.
The Color Change Tip will instantly turn pink showing that urine is being absorbed. Continue holding the Color Change Tip in the urine for the full 5 seconds.
As the pregnancy test begins to work, you'll see blue lines start to develop.
A ‘Pregnant’ result may appear in 1 minute when testing from your missed period (which is the day after your expected period).
Wait for 3 minutes to confirm a ‘Not Pregnant’ result or when testing before you have missed your period (See Q10).
A blue line must be present in the control window when you read your result. This line shows that the test has worked.
If no blue line appears in the control window within 10 minutes the test has not worked
It does not matter if one of the lines that make up the '+' symbol is lighter or darker than the other; the result is 'Pregnant' (positive).
Read your result within 10 minutes of doing a test. Ignore any changes to your result after this time.

Frequently asked questions
Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test is more than 99% accurate3 in laboratory tests, when used from the day you expect your period to start.
Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test can be used as early as 4 days before you expect your period (which is 5 days sooner than your missed period). If you test before your expected period and get a 'Not Pregnant' (negative) result, there is still a chance that you may be pregnant. See the chart below for results from clinical testing of Clearblue® Rapid Detection with early pregnancy samples.
Number of days before the expected period -1 -2 -3 -4 % of samples from pregnant women giving a 'Pregnant' result 98% 97% 88% 56%
- If you have irregular cycles, you should allow for your longest cycle in recent months before testing.
- If you have no idea when you expect your period we recommend testing not less than 19 days after the last time you had unprotected sex.
- If the result is 'Not Pregnant' (negative), and pregnancy is still suspected, refer to question 9.
When you are pregnant your body produces the pregnancy hormone hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotrophin). The amount of hCG in your body increases in the early stages of pregnancy. Clearblue® Rapid Detection can detect tiny amounts of this hormone in your urine. (The sensitivity of this test is 25mIU/ml).
- Always read the manufacturer's instructions for any medication you are taking before conducting a test.
- Fertility drugs containing hCG (such as Pregnyl® and Profasi ®4) can give misleading results (these fertility drugs are usually given by injection, and testing too soon after administration may give a false 'Pregnant' result).
- Other fertility therapies (such as Clomid®5, clomiphene citrate), painkillers and hormonal contraceptives (e.g. contraceptive pill) should not affect the result. However, if you have recently stopped taking hormonal contraception or are using fertility therapies like Clomid®, your periods may be irregular, leading you to test too soon.
- If you have recently been pregnant (even if not carried to full term) you may get a false 'Pregnant' result.
- Ectopic pregnancy, ovarian cysts, menopause and some very rare medical conditions can give misleading results.
If you do get unexpected results you should discuss them with your doctor.
5. I previously tested ‘Pregnant’ but have tested again and got a ‘Not Pregnant’ result, or my period has started. What does this mean?
While Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy test is over 99% accurate3 at detecting the pregnancy hormone from the day you expect your period, it’s possible to get a pregnant (positive) result and find out later that you’re not pregnant (i.e., you may later get a negative result, or your period may start). This may be due to natural loss during the early stages of pregnancy, known as ‘early pregnancy loss’, which sadly is not uncommon, as around 1 in 4 pregnancies end in early pregnancy loss. If you do get unexpected results, ask your doctor for advice.
6. I have used the Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test but the Color Change Tip has not turned completely pink. What should I do?
If the Color Change Tip has not turned completely pink you may not have applied enough urine. However, if the blue line in the control window appears within 10 minutes of performing the test then the test has worked. If no blue line appears in the Control Window within 10 minutes of performing the test, refer to question 7.
7. I have used the Clearblue® Rapid Detection Pregnancy Test but no blue line has appeared in the control window within 10 minutes. What should I do?
The test has not worked. This may be because:
- The Color Change Tip was not kept pointing downwards or the pregnancy test stick was not laid flat after urine was applied.
- Too much or too little urine was used. You must sample for 5 seconds. You should test again, using a new pregnancy test stick, taking care to follow the instructions. You may wish to collect a sample of your urine in a clean, dry container and immerse only the Color Change Tip for 5 seconds.
Picture A: This denotes a 'Pregnant' (positive) result. This is more likely when you are testing before you expect your period when your hCG levels may be relatively low.
Picture B: This is not unusual when you are pregnant (positive) and you are testing on or around the day you expect your period as hCG levels may still be relatively low.
Picture C: This is more likely to occur when you are pregnant (positive) and you are testing more than a few days after you expect your period as hCG levels are higher.
If you are still unsure of your result, you should wait at least 3 days before testing again, taking care to follow instructions
- For your result to be 'Pregnant' (positive) there must be a blue line in the control window and a '+' symbol in the result window within 10 minutes of performing the test. The appearance of the '+' symbol in the result window may vary, however, the lines that make up the '+' symbol and the line in the control window should be of a similar width (see pictures A-C).
- For your result to be 'Not Pregnant' (negative) there must be a blue line in the control window and a '-' (minus) symbol in the result window within 10 minutes of performing the test. If your result is 'Not Pregnant' and pregnancy is still suspected, refer to question 9.
You may not be pregnant (negative), or the level of pregnancy hormone may not yet be high enough to be detected, or you may have miscalculated the day your period was due.
- If you tested early, test again when you expect your period.
- If your period is overdue, test again in 3 days time. If this test gives you a 'Not Pregnant' result and you still have not had your period, see your doctor.
If your test says you are pregnant (positive) you should see your doctor who can advise you on what steps you should take next.
A ‘Pregnant’ result may appear in as fast as 1 minute when testing from the day you miss your period (which is the day after your period was expected but did not come). Make sure a blue line is also present in the control window before reading your result. You must wait 3 minutes to confirm a ‘Not Pregnant’ result, or when testing before you expect your period. If no blue line appears in the control window within 10 minutes the test has not worked (refer to question 7).
