Q. How soon can I test?
A. Early Bird Swift is a very sensitive test so you
can test at any time of the day from the first day of
your missed period. However you should note that
excessive fluid intake may dilute the pregnancy
hormone and may make the result difficult to read.

Q. How does the test work?
A. From the beginning of your pregnancy your
body produces the pregnancy hormone hCG
(human Chloronic Gonadotrophin) which is
present in your urine in increasing amounts as
your pregnancy progresses. Early Bird Swift can
detect very low levels of hCG as early as the first
day of your missed period.

Overleaf are some frequently asked questions about the Early Bird Swift pregnancy test...
Q. I have received a negative result
(not pregnant) now what?
A. If only the control line has appeared in the result
window then no pregnancy hormone has been
detected in your urine and you are probably not
pregnant and your period should begin within the
next few days.
If it does not, then you should perform another
Early Bird Swift pregnancy test as it is possible
you may have miscalculated the length of your
cycle, or perhaps your urine did not contain
sufficient hCG at the time to give you a positive
result. If you retest and no hCG is detected, yet
your period does not start within a few days, you
should make an appointment to see your doctor.
Q. I have received a positive result (pregnant)
what should I do now?
A. Remember, no home test is intended to replace
your doctor’s diagnosis, so you should consult
your doctor as soon as possible to confirm your
result and receive free advice on healthcare.
Q. No lines have appeared in the result
window, what should I do?
A. Your result should appear within 5 minutes.
However, if no results have appeared within 10
minutes the test has not worked correctly. This
may be because too much or too little urine has
been used. You should test again using a second
test, taking care to follow the instructions overleaf.
Q. How long will the result last, as I want to
show someone.
A. You can keep the result almost indefinitely if you
pull apart the test pen and allow the test strip to dry
fully before storing.
Q. I still have questions, who can I speak to?
A. To discuss your questions, please call Amy
James between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday to
Friday and please quote the number of the product

of folic acid as soon as you start trying for a baby and up to the 12th week of pregnancy. This will reduce
the risk of your baby developing neural tube defects like spina-bifida. For further information about folic
