It doesn't require to pay a visit to the doctor when you use a pregnancy kit at home. But it is natural to have several questions in mind of before taking a test - when is the right time to take a urine pregnancy test or how accurate these over the counter kits are? (1)

    What is a Prega News Pregnancy Kit?

    Prega News Pregnancy Kit is a pregnancy test or urine pregnancy kit (UPT), which is a popular brand in India. Manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Mankind, the kit is the simple test for confirming the pregnancy at home. It is a common test kit that is used all over India. While performing this test, few drops of urine are placed on the pregnancy card to check the pregnancy hormone i.e. human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which helps in detecting and confirming the pregnancy. You can use the kit either at your healthcare provider or get yourself tested at your own place. A Pregnancy test kit is one of the most common ways of testing pregnancy after missing the menstrual cycle. (2) (3)

    Home pregnancy test kit

    Where can I get Prega News Kit?

    You can get these test strips at chemists and departmental stores, as it doesn't require any medical prescription for purchasing. You can get two outcomes either pregnant or not pregnant by testing the presence of hCG in the urine.

    hCG is released only when the egg is fertilized and implants itself in the uterus. You will have to take a new test in case the test has not been done correctly and does not display any result.

    Components of Prega News Pack

    One pack of Prega News pack contains:

    • One card or Pregnancy Strip
    • One Dropper
    • Silica Granules (strictly meant to avoid moisture in the packing)

    How Soon Can I Take A Pregnancy Test?

    Some of the pregnancy tests are said to have high sensitivity to hCG and are able to detect pregnancy in 2 to 4 days before the period is due. Until and unless your cycles are irregular, the chances of getting an accurate result after 7 days of missing your periods lie between 95 to 98 percent. It is advised to pick the test, which has a higher sensitivity level to hCG hormone. (4) (5)

    Sensitivity and Accuracy of Prega News Kit

    Most of the home pregnancy tests detect the hCG level at 20 - 25 mIU/ml, implying the lower the number on the pregnancy test, the higher the sensitivity to hCG thus, chances of accurate results. (6)

    Prega News Kit Usage Instructions

    It is reported that Prega News Kit is usually accurate and rarely has shown false positive results. But still, there are chances of false positives. To avoid such situations please keep the below pointers in mind while performing the test.

    1- Do not Use Expired Kit: The kit would not be working properly or cannot be relied upon after the expired date.

    2- Put Urine Drops on the circular area: With the help of the dropper, provided in the kit itself, put three drops of urine on the circular area of the pregnancy strip. The circular area is indicated as ‘S’ on the device.

    3- Place the pregnancy strip on the Flat Surface: Make sure you keep the card on the flat surface to get the accurate results. Results will take a while to appear so hang in there for a few minutes.

    4- Observe the number of Pink lines on the strip: Every pregnancy strip has two lines marked by ‘C’ and ‘T’ regions. ‘C’ is marked for Control Line and ‘T’ is marked for Test line. Study the result if you get a pink line in the ‘C’ or control line region. If the Control line is blank, it means your test results are invalid and you need to perform a new test.

    • If you are pregnant then two pink lines will appear on the strips (both in C and T region), which indicates the positive result.
    • If you are not pregnant then you can only see one line appearing on the strip (only in the C region) indicating negative result.

    Pregnancy test kit

    5- Dark and Faint lines: There might be some cases where you will see two lines appearing in different colors i.e. one dark pink (C Region) and one light pink (T region) which implies you need to take the test again. Before taking the test again, wait for at least 2 to 3 days. This is the case where you have lower levels of hCG.

    6- Note down the results within 5 minutes: Always check the result within 5 minutes. Results are not valid thereafter.

    When is Prega News Kit recommended to use?

    Prega News kit can be used if you have missed your menstrual cycle and had unprotected intercourse during the previous weeks. You can take the test without any further delay i.e. up to 20 days after having sex. Ensure that your Prega News Kit hasn't run out of date. (7)

    There are women who suffer from nausea, vomits and feel to have pregnancy symptoms without being actually pregnant due to a condition is known as Hypochondria. Don't stress about it and take your time if results are not clear. Try to take the test again with the above instructions again.

    How to interpret Prega News Kit results

    It is very easy to read the result on your Prega News Kit like if you get a single pink colored line in the ‘C’ region it means that you are not pregnant while if there are two pink lines, it implies that you are pregnant. (8)

    Lines that show different color other than pink where one is darker and the other is light, it shows that the test is inconclusive. In such a case you will have to test again in 4-5 days. If it turns out to be positive then you are definitely pregnant yet make sure that it is not an expired test.

    In case you get a negative but still experience the pregnancy symptoms, then the best thing is to test again after 3 to 4 days or head to a hospital. At times, when you are on medications, the results of Prega News can get affected hence it is advisable that you go through the leaflet that comes along the kit pack to know about such medicines.

    Cost of Prega News Kit

    Prega News is a cost-efficient pregnancy test kit that is available for Rs. 50 in the market. You also do not need a doctor’s prescription to get it.

    My results are Positive or negative?

    You are certainly pregnant if you have checked that your product is not expired and the result is positive. In such a case, you should visit your doctor immediately and know what you need to do and care about.

    Also, keep in mind that negative results are not reliable. In case if you have nausea or have symptoms of pregnancy then you should take up a thorough check-up. There are some medications that can affect the test results like promethazine, tranquilizers, sleeping tablets and medicines required for treating epilepsy or Parkinson's.

    If all the instructions are not followed completely, then it may result in an invalid test also where none of the lines appear on the test strip. Such invalid tests need to be done again.
