I-Can® Pregnancy Test is manufactured by Piramal Healthcare. It gives women an accurate estimation of pregnancy.
This kit detects the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (HCG) in the urine and thereby shows either positive, negative or invalid results. HCG is a hormone produced by the placenta after implantation. The absorbent area on th strip, marked as “T” and “C”, contains chemicals that help to detect HCG when urine gets absorbed into the kit.
I-Can® Pregnancy Test contains one single-use pregnancy detection strip with one test device and one disposable dropper.
Major benefit of this kit is that it is very simple to use and you do not require any assistance to determine pregnancy by using this kit.
How to use I-Can® Pregnancy Test:
It is best to perform I-Can® Pregnancy Testas early as on the 6th day after having unprotected sex.
In order to obtain best results, as early as on the 6th day after having unprotected sex or use the kit on the first days of the missed period.
Note, that there are three markings on the test strip, one is “C” - means control, “T”- means test, and an aperture, marked as “S”.
I-Can® Pregnancy Testcan be used in two ways.
1. Collect your first morning urine sample in clean and dry container.
2. With the help of the dropper place three drops of urine in the small aperture in the kit that this is marked as “S”. Add the next drop of urine when the previous one is completely absorbed.
3. Wait for 1 to 5 minutes minutes to get the results.
1. Hold the test kit in such a way that the small aperture (marked “S”) is towards you.
2. Urinate on the sample region for 5 seconds.
3. Check the results after 1 to 5 minutes.
You are pregnant: if you find two pink colored lines along “T” and “C”, it indicates that your pregnancy test is positive.
You are not pregnant: if you see one pink colored line along “C”, it indicates that your pregnancy test is negative.
Note, if you do not find any colored line on the strip, it indicates an invalid test. Repeat the test by using a new test device.
The test may show false positive results due to:
- certain prescription medications (hCG injections, phenothiazine, anticonvulsants, anti-Parkinson’s drugs, some tranquilizers, some diuretics, promethazine);
- contaminated urine sample (presence of impurities in the urine sample, such as soap, detergent, or blood);
- medical conditions (e.g., ectopic pregnancy, ovarian cysts, menopause, choriocarcinoma, ovarian cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer and other cancerous diseases);
- biochemical pregnancy (it occurs when a woman becomes pregnant yet has a spontaneous miscarriage before she even knew she was pregnant).
