How to Take a Clearblue Pregnancy Test
Nervous about taking the test? Not sure how to read it? Follow this step-by-step guide.
Clearblue manufactures two varieties of home pregnancy test, a digital version and a non-digital one. When you're ready to test, first check the date on the bottom of the box to make sure the tests haven't expired. If you are all set, open the box and remove one of the tests from its packaging. Remove the cap to expose the stick's absorbent tip. Holding the test by its thumb grip, place the tip pointing downward in your urine stream. If you're using a digital test, keep it there for 5 seconds, or collect a sample of your urine in a clean dry container and dip the test tip in it for 20 seconds. The non-digital test has a color changing tip. Keep it in your urine stream or in the cup for 5 seconds after it's changed from white to pink. Place the stick on a flat surface with the result window facing up. The digital test screen should display an hour glass while the test is processing and a result within 3 minutes. If you're using a non-digital test, let it sit for at least 3 minutes but no longer than 10. After the appropriate amount of time has passed, check your results. The digital test is straightforward. When it's finished processing, the screen will either display the words pregnant or not pregnant. If a book symbol or nothing at all appears on the screen, an error has occurred. Reference the package instructions for your next steps. Regardless of the result, the small window of the non-digital test will show a single vertical line. If it doesn't, the test didn't work. The second larger window will show a single horizontal line if the test is negative. If it's positive, you'll see 2 lines that intersect to form a plus sign. It doesn't matter how faint or dark the lines are. If two lines are present, you're pregnant.
