Home Pregnancy Tests 101
Learn how HPTs work, when to take them (accurately!), and when you'll get results
Aimstick Test Strip or Cassette
How it works: Aimstick home pregnancy tests are available as a test strip or as a test card. The test strip must be submerged in a sterile container with a urine specimen for a minimum of five seconds. For the test card, using the pipette provided with the kit, you’ll need to drop four to five urine sample drops onto the circle target area.
When to take it: You can use the Aimstick tests one day after you miss your period.
Result time: It takes both the test strip and the cassette three to five minutes to provide results (the tests should be discarded after five minutes).
Medical interactions: Fertility medications containing hCG may affect test results. Birth control pills, alcohol, painkillers, and antibotics shouldn’t affect either test result.
Detects 20 mIU/ml and greater.
