Frequently Asked Questions

Early Bird Swift is an accurate, easy to use and simple to read pregnancy test that can be used at any time of the day and as early as the first day of your missed period. We have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions regarding the test below.


How accurate is Early Bird Swift?

Over 99% accurate in clinical trials.

How does the test work?

From the beginning of your pregnancy your body produces the pregnancy hormone hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin) which is present in your urine in increasing amounts as your pregnancy progresses. Early Bird Swift can detect very small levels of hCG as early as the first day of your missed period.

How soon can I test?

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 it dificult to read.

I have received a negative result (not pregnant) now what?

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 that you may have miscalculated the length of your cycle, or perhaps your urine did not contain detected, yet your period does not start within the next few days, you should make an appointment to see your doctor.

I have received a positive result (pregnant) what should I do now?

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





No lines have appeared in the result window, what should I do?

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 above the frequently asked questions.

How long will the result last, as I want to show someone?

You can keep the result almost indefinitely if you pull apart the test pen and allow the test strip to dry fully before storing
